The first meeting between Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin, and now the bride and groom, took place almost 10 years ago. All this long time in life, everyone had ups and downs, which, it seems to us, led the relationship of the singer and the model to a new status - a couple who is preparing for the wedding.
While fans cannot believe that Justin has finally decided on his life partner and proposed to her, and Selena Gomez is surprised and thinks that this is not for long, we decided to make a timeline of Bieber and Baldwin's relationship.
Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber
Around 2009: The awkward handshake that started it all.
Hayley and Justin's story began around 2009, when the father of the American model, actor Stephen Baldwin, introduced them to each other. Fortunately, you can witness this first meeting because there is a video left on YouTube. It shows how embarrassed Haley held out her hand to the artist.
February 2011: never say never.
At the age of 16, Hailey first appeared on the red carpet with Justin, more precisely, she was with her dad at the New York premiere of Bieber's 3D documentary Never Say Never, in which the hero of the occasion took a couple of shots with them.
October 2014: just friends?
Since 2010, Justin has been dating and then at odds with Selena Gomez. In 2014, the couple decided to reconcile again, but this time not completely. A few months before the next parting, Bieber began to be noticed at church services with his loved ones - Hayley Baldwin and Kendall Jenner. Even then, Selena understood that they were not just friends. Evidence of this is also the posts on Justin's Instagram account, which he dedicated to his "girlfriend".

December 2014: do not spill water.
Soon Haley and Justin got tired of rumors, so they decided to tell the public that they are just "good friends" - this is what Bieber wrote on his Instagram account.
I have known him since childhood, from about 13 years old, we have been good friends all this time. We're just close friends and nothing else,”Haley said in an interview with E! News.
January 2015: travel together.
As soon as they turned to fans to stop spreading rumors about their romance, they, albeit with a few more friends, went to the Caribbean to celebrate New Year's Eve.
There, they had romantic dinners on the beach, watched the fireworks, rode jet skis - all this further spawned talk of possible romantic relationships.
At the end of January, they were again seen together at several festivals, including Coachella.

In the summer of 2015, Justin and Haley were "caught" hugging on the streets of Miami.

In July, Justin posted a photo with Father Baldwin, and a few months later he and Hailey were photographed walking the streets of Los Angeles.
December 2015: Hailey is on vacation with Justin's family.
December began with the fact that Hayley posted a picture on her Instagram, for which she posed in Justin's sweatpants. In the comments to the post, the artist playfully asked her to return the pants, but the model replied that "they suit her better."
At the end of 2015, Justin invited a friend to relax with him and his family in New York. The result is a stream of cute photos of the couple.

January 2016: everything seems to be official.
Justin celebrated the New Year with Hailey and soon officially confirmed that he was in a relationship with an ex-girlfriend. He posted a blurry photo of kissing a model.
February 2016: Justin contemplates marrying Haley.
In February, Hailey finally confirmed her romance with Bieber and said that their couple is no different from the rest: they, too, face problems. “He's going on tour. The relationship is already quite complicated, but I do not want to talk about it, because it should remain between me and him."
In the same month, Justin refused to keep silent about the relationship with his "girlfriend."
I know that in the past I hurt people, said the wrong and hurtful things, although I meant something completely different. Therefore, now I think more about the consequences, I try not to hurt anyone. What if Hailey ends up being the one I'm marrying? If it all spins, I might inadvertently hurt her feelings, because it always happens. Such wounds take a very long time to heal. It’s so hard.
Spring-summer 2016: passions are heating up.
In April, Baldwin suddenly announced that she did not want undue attention to her relationship with anyone, and also said with despair that it was simply impossible to meet with someone from show business: "This requires thick skin."
In July, the model turned out to be the third superfluous in the relationship between Justin and Selena: she published a long post about sincerity and responsibility. Many fans interpreted this post as criticizing Bieber and Gomez's relationship. Further, her childhood friend unsubscribed from her on social networks, after which he completely deleted his Instagram account.
On the same day, Hayley tweeted explaining her words. She asked not to attribute her to someone else's relationship and to respect her opinion.
December 2016: Extreme handshake (but not the last).
In late 2016, Hailey and Justin were photographed while enjoying each other's company and holding hands. After that, as the model later said, she and Bieber did not communicate for a long time.
In February 2017, the singer said (more precisely, he shouted) that he was free: “I want to get married. Not now, but soon! " At the end of this year, Justin unexpectedly began dating Selena again, but their love story lasted for another four months. One of the reasons for their final separation is the renewal of Bieber's friendship with Baldwin. Even then, Selena understood that they were not just friends.
May 2018: Return of Jaylee (similar to Brangelina).
At the end of May, The Times published an interview with Haley, in which she discussed many topics, including the topic of relationship problems. “It's hard to find someone with the same ideas and morals as you. I have met such people."
She also said a few words about Bieber:
Meeting a “loud” star is never easy. I've never had a relationship like this. But I helped both of us realize that we are better off being friends. I love him dearly. Now our relationship is mature - and that's good.
June 2018: parties, church services and jokes.
In June, the celebrities were seen together in a church, in a club in Miami, on the streets of Brooklyn (in the photos from the last of the listed exits, a ring was seen on Hayley's “same finger”, but then journalists took it as a joke), then they were noticed kissing on a walk etc…

Fans panicked when Hailey removed all of her ex-Sean Mendes photos from social media.
July 2018: proposal.
On July 9, the tabloids exploded with the news: Justin Bieber proposed to Hailey Baldwin! Insiders reported that the artist presented the ring to his beloved in the Bahamas, and the model agreed.
Later that day, the main newsmakers of the last day confirmed the news of the engagement and Bieber publicly confessed his love for his bride.
I wanted to wait a bit, but the news spread so quickly. Everything is simple and clear, Haley, I love everything about you! I strive to spend my whole life with you, getting to know every part of you and loving you so tenderly and tenderly. My heart belongs only to you. You are the love of my life and I don't want to spend it with anyone else. You help me become better and complement me, - wrote Bieber.
