Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are not shy about the challenges they have faced in their marriage.
Bieber, 27, and Baldwin, 24, opened up about the obstacles they have overcome in the past three years since getting married in an upcoming episode of the new podcast In Good Faith with Chelsea & Judah Smith.
“We always had so many conversations about, ‘What were our goals? Where did we want to end up at a certain age?’ ” Baldwin said. “We always talked about wanting to be married and be young, and have a young family, and have kids young.”
Baldwin and Bieber, who were married in September of 2018, have been very vocal about their desire to start a family. Ideally, the couple wants to start trying for a baby at the end of 2021.
While the two’s relationship is solid, Bieber reveals that it hasn’t always been that way.
“I had experienced so many things in my life. So many milestones and traveled the world and seen everywhere in the world. And I just got to a place where I was lonely, and I just didn’t want to do it all alone,” he said on the podcast. “I realized there was some serious healing I needed to go through in order to get to a place where I could be in a healthy, serious relationship because I had a lot of trauma and scars. So I just committed to working on those things and getting healthy.”
Justin sought treatment for his mental health back in 2019, and spoke publicly about the depression he faced two years earlier in the midst of his Purpose world tour, which ultimately led him to do away with it.
And while he and Baldwin had first split in 2016, they rekindled their romance in 2018, and were engaged that July.
“Luckily, Hailey accepted me as I was,” Bieber said. “Even when we got married, there was still a lot of damage and hurt that I still needed to work through, but you’ve seen my heart through it all.”
While Baldwin emphasized her commitment to the cause.
“I was in it. I made a decision. I know for a fact that I’ve loved this person for a very long time and now would not be the time to give up on him. I just wouldn’t do that to him,” she said. “Imagine abandoning somebody in the middle of the worst time of their life, potentially. I’m not that type of a person. So I was going to stick it out no matter what the outcome was going to be.”
