A Definitive Timeline of Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber’s Dramatic, PDA-Filled Relationship
Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber are together again like it’s 2015, and in the interest of understanding their up-and-down ’ship turned marriage, the time has come to morph into Hilary Duff and go back…back to the beginning.
Who Knows When 2009
Hailey and Justin meet for the first time! Her dad introduces them! And it’s captured on video! And she looks so not into it!
FYI, this moment was captured on Vine (RIP, ol’ friend) and Justin RT’d it in 2016.
January 4, 2016
Justin posts a photo of himself and Hailey making out on Instagram. If that’s not confirmation that they’re dating, IDK what is.
Oh, and he also posted a photo of himself staring longingly at Hailey’s boobs. ROMANCE! Chivalry isn’t dead, guys, and this photo is proof!
February 10, 2016
Hailey confirms that she and Justin are dating—just not exclusively. “We are not an exclusive couple,” she told E!. “He’s about to go on tour. Relationships at this age are already complicated, but I don’t really like to talk about it because it’s between me and him.”
February 11, 2016
In an interview with GQ, Justin basically says the same thing as his gal, explaining Hailey is “someone I really love” but that he doesn’t “want to be held down by anything.”
“I don’t want to feel like the girl I love is an added responsibility,” he muses. “I know that in the past, I’ve hurt people and said things that I didn’t mean to make them happy in the moment. So now I’m just more so looking at the future, making sure I’m not damaging them. What if Hailey ends up being the girl I’m gonna marry, right? If I rush into anything, if I damage her, then it’s always gonna be damaged.”
August 15, 2016
Justin unfollows Hailey on Instagram. Who knows why, but apparently, he was jealous of Drake, LOL. “Justin unfollowed Hailey on social media, and now all their friends are talking sh*t on Sofia [Richie] and him and how messed up it is,” a source tells People. The source adds, “Bieber wasn’t happy about [her friendship with Drake] and so they haven’t really been in touch in a bit. But out of nowhere, Sofia apparently made him unfollow Hailey and now she and her friends are all super upset.”
2016 to 2018: The Dark Ages
Justin and Hailey are NOT friends for almost two years. Hailey recently explained this period in their relationship, saying, “[We] went through a long period of time when we weren’t friends. We didn’t speak for quite some time and there was a lot of weirdness that went on.”
Speaking of weirdness, here’s a GIF for you to enjoy:
June 10, 2018
Justin and Hailey are spotted in Miami looking all kinds of flirty at a church conference. LOL, sorry, God.

June 13, 2018

September 14, 2018
After Justin and Hailey went to a New York City courthouse to get their marriage license, everyone assumed they got married.

Hailey later deleted that tweet, which was super sus.

That same day, Justin and his “baby boo” were spotted making out in London. The pics are truly something.
September 18, 2018
Justin shoved an unidentified object (probs one of those minty inhaler things you use when you have a stuffy nose) up his nose and serenaded Hailey while out and about in London. Again, it was truly something.

Their religious wedding ceremony is put on hold while Justin focuses on his mental health. A source told People, “They will still have a wedding eventually, but this is not their focus right now. They haven’t sent out any new Save the Dates. They will wait until Justin feels better and is excited about planning their wedding again.” Fair!
March 22, 2019
The Baldwin-Biebers bought a 1930s 6,132-square-feet Monterey Colonial brick home in Beverly Hills. In regular speak, their new house definitely makes the case for why we need an MTV Cribs revival. If you wanna see what $8.5 million gets you in one of Los Angeles’s priciest zip codes, look no further than this envy-inducing ’gram of their home:
April 1, 2019
Justin and Hailey played the worst April Fool’s joke on everyone and pretended like she was pregnant, which didn’t sit well with their followers. People immediately started calling them out for being insensitive to people with fertility issues. He responded by saying, “There’s always gonna be people offended, there’s also people who don’t take jokes very well, I am a prankster and it was APRIL FOOLS’. I didn’t at all mean to be insensitive to people who can’t have children.”
April 8, 2019
After posting, deleting, reposting, and editing it multiple times, Justin posted a poem for Hailey on Instagram. Some lyrical highlights include:

During a performance at Churchome in Beverly Hills, Justin opened up about his recent struggles and said, “God is pulling me through a hard season.” But even though Justin is going through it right now, he gave a shout-out to Hailey, who he said is “such a huge support in my life through this season.”
September 6, 2019
Justin posted a super-sweet Instagram of Hailey without makeup, where she looks like a dewy, skincare-loving goddess. And that would’ve been the end of it, but of course, trolls had to get involved.
One person commented, “You don’t need to do this. If you really love each other, just live and enjoy it without trying to presume to appear or force someone else to see that YOU’RE IN LOVE.”
Here’s what Justin has to say about that:

September 30, 2019
Hailey and Justin are spotted heading to their rehearsal dinner, and they look so happy! Hailey goes full bridal in a white minidress, which you can see right this way.
These pics are part of the couple’s rehearsal, and it’s all very cute…except some random dude filmed a video of Justin “humping” Hailey, which is all kinds of strange. But whatever!
An E! News source has this to say about the actual festivities: “Guests arrived by boat to the rehearsal dinner on the Palmetto property. There were several water taxis that took guests over around 6:30 p.m. The dinner was on the edge of the water and was outdoors. There were many string lights hanging and lit candles. Everyone was seated at long tables and the decor was very chic and white.”
“There were waiters standing greeting guests with champagne as they arrived,” the source added. “Everyone cheered for them and they looked really happy to see everyone. Hailey and Justin both could not stop smiling.”

November 18, 2020
Hailey took time to clarify the timeline of her and Justin’s relationship, shooting down rumors that it overlapped with his reconciliation with Selena Gomez.
She told Ashley Graham on the Pretty Big Deal podcast (via E! News) that “people don’t know” she and Justin “had been talking for a while before we got back together.” She added, “Contrary to popular belief, he had been single for a while and I had been single and we were kind of just trying to figure life out.”
February 10, 2021
Hailey spills all the details about her and Justin’s relationship in a cover story with Elle, down to why they decided to break up, how they rekindled their relationship, and how Justin grew in the time since their split.
“There was a time when our lives seemed to be going in very different directions,” Hailey says about their 2016 breakup. “I actually think—now that I look back at it being married—that it was a good thing for the two of us, very healthy.”
As for how they met, Hailey says that she and Justin rekindled their romance after having a chance encounter at church. “We ended up being at this church conference together in Miami, and it was the first time we’d seen each other in a while,” Hailey continues. “I remember we were hanging out and I was like, ‘Listen, I’m really, really happy for us to be friends again. I want us to always be cool and be friends.’ He was like, ‘Yeah, here’s the thing: We’re not going to be friends.’ And I was like, ‘Oh. Is that so?’ I think we were both a little unsure about what was going on in the very beginning. It was familiar territory, but when a lot of time goes by, it’s like getting to know a new person.”
“He had grown up so much,” Hailey adds. “I was actually shocked. I think I had grown up a lot too. He was somebody I’d always cared about so deeply and loved very deeply. Obviously, it took work and getting past things between the two of us, but it was all very worth it. He’s an incredible, amazing man and such a good partner to go through life with. There is no one else I would have ever wanted to spend my life with except him. So, I’m lucky.”
April 13, 2021
Surprise—Justin is on the cover of GQ and shares that he had a difficult time in his first year of marriage to Hailey, explaining that “it was really tough because there was a lot going back to the trauma. There was just a lack of trust…there was all these things that you don’t want to admit to the person that you’re with, because it’s scary. You don’t want to scare them off by saying, ‘I’m scared.’”
The good news though? Justin and Hailey are focusing on “creating these moments for us as a couple, as a family, that we’re building these memories,” which sounds like they were able to work on his trauma. Justin adds that “it’s beautiful that we have that to look forward to. Before, I didn’t have that to look forward to in my life. My home life was unstable. I didn’t have a significant other. I didn’t have someone to love. I didn’t have someone to pour into.” Awww!
September 12, 2021
Hailey cheered on her hubs like no other while he performed at the 2021 VMAs, and it was seriously the sweetest and cutest thing to see.
October 7, 2021
It’s no surprise that Justin has wanted to be a father—I mean, he did stage a whole April Fools prank saying that Hailey was pregnant. But, it may not have to be a joking dream much longer, according to The Sun. In Justin’s new Amazon Prime documentary Justin Bieber: Our World, which The Sun previewed, there’s a scene where he asks Hailey if they can start trying to get a little bun in her oven (!!!) at the end of this year and OMG OMG OMG.
FWIW, this doc was shot at the end of 2020 and Hailey asked her hubby about hopes for the upcoming year, to which Justin replied: “To continue to set goals and have fun doing them, make sure I put family first. And hopefully we will squish out a nugget.” Hailey beamed at the response, and Justin continued, “At the end of 2021 how about we start trying?” Can we get a backup internet for when these two shut the current one down with this news one day???
It may be some time though, so don’t go holding your breath. A source close to the couple told Entertainment Tonight back in May that they weren’t planning to have kids anytime soon. “Hailey is super focused on her career right now and isn’t in a rush to have kids,” the source told the outlet. “Of course they have talked about their future and building a family together someday, but both of them are busy with work right now and Hailey really wants to build up her YouTube channel. The two of them are very supportive of each other.”
Aaand that brings us to right now! This list will be updated with the next installment of Hailey and Justin’s love season.
