Though the two newlyweds assured fans that they wouldn’t be having any little Biebers anytime soon, they did decide to expand their family with a little furry addition — a puppy named Oscar. The couple showed off their adorable pooch in a series of social media posts resulting in a collective “awww” on the internet.
Referred to as their “dogson,” the puppy was heavily featured in social media videos by Justin and Hailey. With millions of likes (no, seriously, one video has surpassed five million likes!), fans can’t wait to see the couple become parents for real.
After months of speculation, Justin and Hailey decided to set the record straight about what actually happened that day in the courthouse. In mid-November, Justin uploaded a picture of Hailey and him walking with the caption, “My wife is awesome.” It's what Millenials like to call a "soft launch." It refers to when you confirm your relationship status with your Insta followers without making that big of a deal about it. Well played Biebers, well played.
In case that wasn’t enough to send his fans into a frenzy, Hailey changed the name of her social media page to “@haileybieber” to signal her official status as “Mrs. Bieber.” After dropping her famous last name for an even more famous one, Hailey mentioned that using her new name was, “definitely strange, it takes adjusting.”
One of the most defining moments for a new couple is navigating major holidays, and Justin and Hailey are no different. Though as a Canadian, Justin celebrates Thanksgiving in October, he decided to celebrate Thanksgiving in November as per Hailey’s American tradition. So sweet!
The two hosted Thanksgiving for both sides of their families in a lavish feast that they shared pictures of on social media. November was also a special month as Hailey got to celebrate her first birthday as a married woman. Fans adored the #CoupleGoal videos and pictures of the two celebrating alongside their families.
Save the Date!
Though Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin were now legally married, the two wanted to have a religious ceremony and wedding party with their friends and family. The two had repeatedly mentioned how important their shared faith is, specifically in terms of having brought them back together, so it was important for them to have a religious ceremony.
Save-the-date cards were sent out for a wedding to take place in late February of 2019, but that date was then changed, leaving fans confused and speculating as to what the holdup was.
Married less than a year, tabloid reports soon emerged and rumors swirled about Justin and Hailey’s marriage being in trouble. The rumors were further supported by a jaw-droppingly revealing interview in "Vogue" magazine by the couple in February 2019.
In the interview, Justin talked about the difficulties the two often have when it comes to communication or expressing their emotions. While Hailey revealed that she has difficulty dealing with the negativity of people on social media who are hoping their marriage ends. She told the interviewer, “The thing is, marriage is very hard.” Yikes!
