Hailey Baldwin’s uncle, Billy Baldwin, said that he believes that she and Justin Bieber “should have waited” to get married, instead of rushing both an engagement and a civil ceremony back in 2018, per Us Weekly.
“I love them as a couple and I would’ve loved to see them get married if they waited a couple more years,” Billy Baldwin said to Us Weekly. “Maybe that would have been better, but they didn’t want to wait because they’re both devout in their faith and… that wasn’t the right fit for them so that’s really none of my business.” Billy is the brother of Hailey’s father, Steven Baldwin. He is also a sibling to Alec Baldwin and Daniel Baldwin.
The couple became engaged after dating for a matter of weeks. They married in a courthouse ceremony in September of 2018. Baldwin also said to Us Weekly that he hopes the couple finds time to bond as a married duo before bringing children into the world.
“I’ve said to them, ‘I hope you don’t jump right in and start having two and three and four kids right away. I just hope that they have the next few years together where they can rampage and just globe trot and just tear it up and have fun,” he remarked.

Courtside at the Knicks vs. Rockets at Madison Square Garden with bro Alec and his lovely bride Hilaria. Sat courtside with Chynna and my buddy Chris Bev for over 10 years back in the day when we lived in NYC. Loved those rivalries with Indiana, Miami... and especially Chicago during the Patrick Ewing era!! Thank you @nyknicks and my dear friend Anne Marie Dunleavy for always making us feel so welcome and taking such great care of us!! So amazing to be back in #TheWorldsMostFamousArena for a game!!
Hailey Baldwin is one of the top models in the world — while her husband, Justin Bieber, has sold an estimated 140 million records thus far in a recording career that spans 11 years.
At the ages of 22 and 25 respectively, Baldwin and Bieber are still adjusting to married life — as well as life as a couple under the scrutiny of the public eye. According to their joint interview in Vogue Magazine, the couple is already working with a marriage counselor as they get to know one another better. Bieber is still dealing with depression, one that ramped up during his last major tour, “Purpose.”
With only a handful of dates left for the 2017 world tour — one wherein the singer performed more than 150 concerts in 40 countries in 16 months — that he decided to pack it in, canceling the remainder of his tour. He would go on to say to Vogue that he was “lonely and depressed.” He also noted during the interview that he was finding it difficult to trust his own judgment, but also that of his new wife as well — something he was working on at that time.
Bieber is reportedly working on new music, and the couple is planning a large wedding with their extended family and friends. The wedding ceremony is reportedly planned to take place sometime this year.
