The Sumer of 2018 brought us a lot of quick, surprising celebrity engagements—including that of Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin (opens in new tab). While diehard Jelena shippers might still be holding out hope that Justin and Hailey will fizzle out, they honestly seem like a pretty great couple.
According to Us Weekly (opens in new tab), Hailey deserves some of the credit (opens in new tab) for pulling Justin down to earth and helping him put his "crazy" phase (you know, peeing in buckets (opens in new tab), egging his neighbors' homes (opens in new tab), etc.) behind him for good.
“Justin is really in love with Hailey. He loves that she is super chill and down to do anything,”a source close to the singer told Us Weekly (opens in new tab). “Hailey has calmed Justin down a lot, and she has changed him as a man. He thinks she is his forever and considers her his best friend and soulmate."
The new Justin is a guy who is happy to stop and talk to fans and that's also at least partially because of Hailey and his love of showing off his love.
"Justin is over his crazy phase, and is more approachable and has been talking to lots of fans when he’s out," the source said. "He’s happy to show the world that Hailey is his girl and he feels at ease with her."
The Justin/Hailey (opens in new tab) insider had tons to say because he or she also offered some details about their highly-anticipated wedding, which, frankly, it sounds like they would both like to be a little (or a lot) less anticipated.
"They want a private wedding without media scrutiny and just want it to be with friends and family," the Us source said. "Justin also believes that God has helped him a lot."
