Hailey Baldwin has opened up about the challenges of her first year when she was married to Justin Bieber.
The couple married in September 2018, when Baldwin revealed that the first year of their marriage was “very difficult” during an interview in March 2021.
Bieber, 27, has been vocal about his experience of depression, which he struggled with after marrying Baldwin, 24.
The couple discussed the early stages of their respective matches on the podcast In Good Faith with Chelsea and Judah Smith, where Baldwin revealed that her mother, Kennya Baldwin, made her stay with the singer at a particularly difficult time.
“I remember I called [her] a few different times, a certain time [when] we were in Brooklyn and I called her, I was crying and I was thinking, ‘I just can not do this. There is no way that I will be able to do this if it is going to be like that forever, “she said.
“And I just remember she was so calm on the phone and she said, ‘It’s over, and you’re fine, and he’s getting well, and we’re here for you.’ And I feel like we had a lot of support.
Baldwin reflected on the significance of the moment and continued: “I feel that if I did not have support, it would have been 10 times harder, and it was already the hardest part of my life at the time, so I also think I was just in it. .
“I made a decision. I know for a fact that I have loved this person for a very long time and now I would not give up on him. I just would not do it against him.”
She added: “Imagine potentially leaving someone in the middle of the worst time of their lives. I’m not that type of person, so I would endure it no matter what the outcome was going to be. It was really hard.”
Bieber opened up about his experience of depression when he has previously asked his fans to “ask” him.

In September 2021, Baldwin closed allegations that her Bieber was “abusing” her.
The model called the rumors a “big bold tale” during an appearance on Demi Lovato’s podcast, titled 4D with Demi Lovato.
“There are so many stories flowing around me, about him, about us together,” she said. “Like, ‘Justin is not sweet to her and abuses her,’ and I’m like, it’s so far from the truth, and it’s the complete opposite.”
Baldwin’s comments came after she was shouted at “Selena” at the Met Gala in 2021.
Footage shared on TikTok appeared to show members of the audience shouting the name of Bieber’s ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, while the couple posed on the red carpet in New York.
At the end of the video, Baldwin, who was close to tears, put on a pair of sunglasses to make sure her eyes do not appear in more photos.
