Lifestyle - News
Their first meetING
Justin and Hailey met back in 2009 on the set of “Today,” while Bieber was making rounds for his press tour. The couple’s first introduction was initiated by Hailey's father Stephen. “I didn't think about it in any kind of way except for the fact that he was cute,” Hailey later told Vogue.
The dating rumors
Justin and Hailey’s first outing at Hillsong Church sparked initial dating rumors in 2014, followed by more speculation due to Justin's split from Selena Gomez. The future married couple denied being in a relationship at the time, but Hailey finally confirmed that they were dating in 2016.
Their time apart
The couple suffered a dramatic fallout and went their separate ways in 2016, the same year they confirmed their relationship. Justin briefly dated Sofia Richie, followed by his old flame Selena Gomez, while Hailey got together with Shawn Mendes before reuniting with Justin in 2018.
What fans thought
Justin and Hailey’s reunion and engagement came as a shock to many. Some fans accused the couple of using the engagement as a publicity stunt, but this aggression eventually settled down, and the Biebers finally tied a knot in September 2018 after being engaged for a year.
The couple’s faith
"The common denominator, I promise you, is always church," Hailey told Vogue of her and Justin's marriage, crediting faith to the reconciliation of their relationship. Both Justin and Hailey come from Christian families and have been candid about their beliefs in public.
