It seems like this is the season of hooking up and posting photos on social media. The latest young couple to make their debut on Instagram is Justin Bieber, 21, and Hailey Baldwin, 19. I have to admit that I confused Hailey Baldwin with Ireland Baldwin, 20, and thought that Hailey was the one who used to have a girlfriend, but that’s not her. Ireland is the daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Bassinger. Hailey is the daughter of Stephen Baldwin, (Alec’s holy roller brother) so she’s technically Ireland’s cousin.
Hailey is close with Kendall Jenner, who of course knows Justin Bieber, so Hailey and Justin have known each other for quite some time before this romance, or whatever is going on with them. Bieber spoke glowingly of Hailey, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid in an interview last November, saying “they are literally the sweetest girls.” In another interview around that time, Bieber also called Hailey “one of my best friends in the entire world.” So these two were friends first.
I guess Kourtney Kardashian got tired of Bieber or realized that she looked ridiculous for hooking up with him, Selena Gomez refused to get back with him and Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner are otherwise entangled with i-D dudes. So he ended up with Hailey Baldwin. The two have been spotted out together in St. Barts, and in case you didn’t see the paparazzi photos, Hailey and Justin have posted plenty of photos to Instagram. I really know nothing about Hailey except for the fact that she’s publicizing a relationship with Bieber and works as a model. That’s just about all I need to know to form an opinion about her.
US Magazine reports that these two are vacationing in the Caribbean, in Anguilla, and that Justin’s dad and his siblings are there too. Here are some of the photos they’ve posted, which look rather uncomfortable. I’ve never been tempted to pose with someone like I’m choking them. Jailey loves to look like they’re cutting off each other’s air supply.
