Justin and Hailey finally came out as an official couple via Instagram in 2016. Prior to their announcement, the two were very close friends, and there was much speculation that the duo was maybe a little bit more than friends. Justin and Hailey would continually shoot down rumors of a relationship on Twitter, until they just couldn’t hide it anymore. How can we blame them?! Who wouldn’t want to flaunt their relationship with JB?

Wedding Bells

Insider

Despite being on and off again between the years of 2016 and 2018, Justin proposed to Hailey in July of 2018. Two short months later they wed in an intimate NYC Courthouse. But did you really get married if there are no celebrations in order? Not in Hollywood! America’s power couple held a reception in September of 2019, just one year later. Guests of the event included pals Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Usher, Jaden Smith, and Katy Perry.

Baby Fever

Nothing elaborate, just some snacks and the great outdoors!

Vogue Italia

OMG. Hailey and Justin appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia this past October, and lets just say we think it may have been their best work. The cover reads, “Home is where my wife is.” Justin’s heartwarming words of course. The feature of the couple was very sexy to say the least. Justin is very open about his love life, and this piece was especially reflective of his relationship with his wife inside the bedroom.
