Justin Bieber recently talked about the first time he met his wife Hailey Baldwin. The couple first met when they were only 13 and 15. This happened back in 2009. Baldwin told the same story on the Jimmy Fallon show as Bieber did on the Ellen DeGeneres show. Bieber recollects the event saying, "We met in the early mornings of a Today show taping. We — I’m pretty sure she didn’t want to be there. Her dad dragged her out of bed in the morning. And basically it was like — you know, because she was raised Christian and I think she….they found out that like, I…I think it was an arranged marriage, I’m pretty sure. Looking back now it was definitely an arranged marriage,".
Both husband and wife now use this as a running joke. Baldwin also said the same thing to Fallon, “I know, it sounds like this weird arranged marriage situation,”. Guest host Demi Lovato interviewed Bieber. He also added “But since she was raised Christian, she’s like, ‘Oh I want to introduce you to Justin and his mom. They have similar values and believe the same thing. We think you guys would be good friends.’ It was definitely an arranged marriage now that I’m thinking about it,” He said this referring to Baldwin's Christian father, Stephen Baldwin.
Fallon asked Baldwin if she was a 'belieber' when she was 13. Back when he was rising to stardom. Said 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.”
Everything has its own timing, Bieber and Baldwin confirm this through their little nostalgic episode.
