Hailey Baldwin debuted her new married name—Hailey Bieber—on Instagram in November 2018. However, it turns out that making the switch from Baldwin to Bieber definitely wasn’t a split-second decision for the model. In a February 12th interview with Bustle she said, “It took some getting used to, for sure. It’s definitely strange, it takes adjusting.” And it was apparently even harder because she is so proud of her family’s name and legacy.
Hailey is remarkably candid about her marriage, and has commented about how she and Justin are committed to putting in the necessary work to make sure they thrive. In the February Vogue cover story, she said, “I’m fighting to do this the right way, to build a healthy relationship. We’re coming from a really genuine place. But we’re two young people who are learning as we go…It’s always going to be hard. It’s a choice.”
Bieber or Baldwin, she’s still the same, awesome Hailey to us, and we wish the Biebers the best as they take on this next chapter.
