Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s relationship is every fangirl’s dream. 

They met in 2009, when she was just 12 years old, at a taping of the Today show. And while the two didn’t think much of the meeting their parents Stephen Baldwin and Pattie Mallette arranged, it would eventually lead to more encounters. 

In addition to being a fan of Bieber, Baldwin was also a fan of his then-girlfriend Selena Gomez, whom he dated on-again, off-again from 2010 to 2018. Baldwin proved that she also supported their relationship on numerous occasions, once writing “Team Jelena” in a 2011 deleted tweet. 

Later on, during one of his many breakups with Gomez, Bieber found himself romantically linked to Baldwin. In 2016, Bieber and Baldwin briefly tried their hand at a relationship. And while it didn’t stand the test of time, the pair rekindled their romance just two months after Bieber split from Gomez after a short reunion in 2018.

Baldwin and Bieber began dating again, got engaged, and exchanged vows at a New York City courthouse—all within a matter of months. Since tying the knot, they have overcome a handful of challenges, from health scares to reignited feuds with Gomez and rumors of Baldwin being a “homewrecker.” Here’s a complete timeline of Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber’s relationship, so far, and how they went from the Today show to the altar and beyond.

When: November 2009

Bieber and Baldwin were just kids when they met for the first time. They crossed paths initially during a brief (and awkward) meet and greet Hailey’s father Stephen Baldwin and Justin’s mother Pattie Mallette arranged backstage at the Today show. She was 12 years old at the time, while he was a 15-year-old pop star who was taking over the world.

In March 2020, Justin reflected on his initial encounter with his now-wife while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “Looking back now, it was definitely an arrange[d] marriage, like they set this whole thing up,” he said. “Since she was raised Christian, it was like, ‘Oh, I want to introduce you to Justin and his mom. They have similar values and believe the same things. We think you guys would be good friends.’”

When: 2011

Bieber was in a highly publicized on-again, off-again relationship with Gomez from 2010 to 2018. The same year that Gomez and Justin went public with their relationship, Baldwin tweeted her thoughts about the union, which fans had nicknamed “Jelena.” 

"I don't care what anyone says but Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez together is the definition of a teenage dream! #word," she wrote in a since-deleted tweet in May 2011. She also tweeted, "I'm for sure 100% team #Jelena."

The model marked the special day on Instagram, writing, “Last Monday was the most special day of my life.” She also shared a photo of her and Bieber on the big day. Baldwin’s eye-dropping veil had “Till Death Do Us Part” inscribed and was designed by the late Virgil Abloh.

For her Vogue Australia cover story where she was interviewed by her husband, Baldwin gushed about their marriage. "My favorite thing about being married is honestly the companionship I feel we have," she said. "Genuinely, you are my best friend in the entire world. There's nobody I would rather spend more time with or do anything with."

The story arrived a few days before his 29th birthday. In a sweet tribute posted on March 1, she once again called him her best friend.
