Not everyone has the moment they first met their fiancee memorialized in film, but Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber do. And while many associate Biber and Selena Gomez as having a long-term relationship, Bieber and Hailey met when they were both very young, in fact, Stephen Baldwin introduced them.
It’s no secret that Bieber is a Christian and that he has battled between his faith and status as a celebrity, growing up in the public spotlight, and his faith has been a large part of his life.
Fans loved to watch glimpses of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez attending Hillsong Church in New York with Pastor Carl Lentz or attending worship conferences in Syndey, Australia at the main church site. But while Justin was attending church service and seen with Selena, there was always another girl who shared Justin’s faith and remained close friends with him: Hailey Baldwin.
In approximately 2004, actor and Christian Stephen Baldwin began a ministry called “Livin It.” The ministry used various forms of media including books and movies to reach people with the message of Jesus Christ.
In 2009, Stephen Baldwin introduced himself to a very young Justin Bieber and then introduced Justin and Hailey.
You may see when the couple first met in the video player below.
There is no doubt that people are talking about the fact that Hailey’s father introduced her to the man she would later become engaged to.
The meeting took place in New York, as Justin prepared for a Today Show interview and performance. Fans have commented that they saw a bit of a reaction on Justin’s part when he first met Hailey.
The actual introduction occurs at the 00:30 mark in the video and fans are sharing their reactions to the video as it is circulating again.
The video has nearly 50,000 views and is included in the Luis Palau ministry YouTube site.
While Hailey Baldwin’s and Justin Bieber’s relationship is hardly an arranged one, it was an arranged introduction.
Stephen Baldwin has been on record multiple times defending Justin Beiber from character attacks the media bombarded him with throughout the years.
What do you think of the video? Do you agree with fans who believe there was a tiny spark in Justin’s behavior when he first met Hailey Baldwin?
The pair has officially announced their engagement but at this time, a wedding date has not been set.
