Hailey Baldwin opens up about the time she first met Justin Bieber

Hailey Baldwin explained the story behind the old photo taken with Justin Bieber from when they were young teens. Bieber shared it on his Instagram the day before their wedding ceremony on September 30. He wrote. “My wife and I :) where it all began.”
 
Hailey recently appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Fallon reminded her of the photo and said. “There’s a really cool, odd, the history between you and Justin that is almost unbelievable. It’s like it’s out of a movie, but it’s real life. You met him back in 2009 when you were 13-years-old…with your dad? What went down?”
 
The model responded. “I know, it sounds like this weird arranged marriage situation. We met because my dad, he brought me to the Today show when Justin performed there. He was no more than 15 I think.” Jimmy asked Hailey if she was a Belieber at the time since Bieber’s song Baby had helped the star reach fame. To this, Hailey said. “To be honest, this is the truth. He was so new that I didn’t really know a lot about him yet. It was really kinda before anything. I met him and his mom and my dad kind of just connected as friends and we invited them over to our house the next day. So him and his mom just came over for family dinner with me and my family and we went bowling.”
 
Jimmy then showed the photo and Hailey commented on it. She said. “What’s funny is that in this photo, I’m super awkward. I had braces. Nowhere was there a thought that I was like, ‘Yeah, he probably has a crush on me.’ I did not — that was not the case at all. We just were hanging and [now] that is my entire husband. It’s ridiculous.”
 
Justin and Hailey dated in 2016 but broke it off early. Hailey revealed that her April 2018 appearance on Fallon prompted Justin to call her up after years. He saw her do a trick where she opened a beer bottle with her teeth. Later she got a phone call. She said. “I got a certain phone call from a certain someone and it was a little like ‘Hey, how are you? I saw you on Jimmy Fallon last night. You were looking really good. I love that trick you did. I had no idea you could do that. It’s so cool,'” Hailey then added. “Cut to, I’m now married to that certain someone.”
