People Editorial Guidelines Published on September 12, 2021 11:14 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Sunday night was no ordinary date night for the Biebers! Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin stepped out for the MTV Video Music Awards at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where the singer performed at the award show for the first time in six years. Bieber, 27, kicked off the show, performing his No. 1 hit "Stay" with the Kid Laroi before he took the spotlight solo to sing "Ghost." The Canadian crooner rocked a pair of black overalls and a black hoodie, later trading the overalls for baggy blue pants and a tan blazer over the sweatshirt. Baldwin, meanwhile, served as a presenter and supported her man from the audience during both his performance and his acceptance speech for artist of the year, in which she got a sweet shout-out. "I want to say thank you guys so much," Bieber told the crowd. "I look over here, and I see my beautiful wife, and I just want to say I love you so much." Baldwin, 24, smiled at her husband and blew him a kiss as he concluded his speech.

However, earlier that week was France's annual Fête de la Musique, or Music Day, which included concerts and crowds at the Presidential Palace. In July, rumors began circulating about the couple expecting a baby after Bieber posted a black and white photo of the duo and captioned it "Mom and dad." However, Baldwin was quick to set the record straight. "I think you should maybe change this caption to Dog Mom and Dad before anyone gets it twisted 😂," she commented on her husband's post — a comment many fans jokingly responded to with remarks of, "Too late."

"I love kids and I can't wait to have my own," the model told Vogue Arabia back in 2018. "I would say that now, that's a closer reality, but definitely not anytime soon." "I'm not in a rush," Bieber wrote to Baldwin in July 2019. "I just wanna enjoy you by yourself for a while!" Bieber and Baldwin tied the knot in September 2018, just two months after getting engaged. The couple then celebrated with a larger ceremony in front of family and friends in 2019. The MTV Video Music Awards, hosted by Doja Cat, aired live from New York City on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET.
