Hailey Baldwin kisses and tells!
“The first time we kissed, we were in New York and we had gone to dinner together,” Baldwin recalled. “We were just hanging and we went back to watch a movie and we kissed.”
She went on to say that their dinner date had to be in secret because Baldwin, who was only 17 at the time, was not technically allowed to go.
“He asked me to go get sushi with him and I called my parents to ask them if I could go and they said no. They were like ‘Absolutely not, you’re not going to hang out with Justin by yourself, that’s not happening,’ ” Baldwin said, before adding that her older sister Alaia saved the day.
“My older sister kind of covered for me and was like, ‘Oh yeah, she’s gonna sleep over at my apartment and it’s all good,’ ” she shared. “She covered for me and we went to dinner and didn’t get caught.”
Baldwin and Bieber, 26, got engaged in the Bahamas in July 2018 and wed just two months later in a secret courthouse ceremony in New York. Then, in September 2019, they celebrated their marriage again in front of friends and family in South Carolina.
The couple was friends for many years prior to dating and even split up at one point before rekindling their romance in the summer of 2018.
During Friday’s episode of Biebers on Watch, Baldwin and Bieber also discussed the moment they realized they loved each other.
“I remember the first time you said you were in love with me, but I don't remember when I was like, ‘Oh yeah he’s the one for sure,’ ” Baldwin said.

“I think just time, being around each other… I just started realizing more and more qualities I liked about you and more things that were just so endearing,” the "Stuck with U" singer replied, later adding, “I think I said, ‘I think I’m falling in love with you.’ ”
However, Baldwin said she was more hesitant to admit her feelings.
“I also think that I was really stubborn,” she shared. “I would never admit to his face that I was in love with him until it was obvious.”
