Justin Bieber & Hailey Baldwin have ‘confirmed the secret to their relationship’ to Vogue.
Speaking to Vogue, the couple confessed they ‘saved themselves’ for their wedding day.
Justin told the magazine he made the decision to be celibate in 2017 after developing a ‘legitimate problem with sex’ and he believes he’s now been ‘rewarded’ by God for his ‘good behaviour’.
He said: “[God] doesn’t ask us not to have sex for him because he wants rules and stuff. He’s like, I’m trying to protect you from hurt and pain. I think sex can cause a lot of pain.
“Sometimes people have sex because they don’t feel good enough. Because they lack self-worth. Women do that, and guys do that. I wanted to rededicate myself to God in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul. And I believe that God blessed me with Hailey as a result.
“There are perks. You get rewarded for good behaviour.”
Justin and Hailey, who are reportedly eager to start a family, first met in 2009 but they didn’t officially start dating until years later in 2016. Their romance was short-lived, though, and Hailey admitted they ‘didn’t speak for quite some time’ following their first break-up, which is when Justin rekindled his romance with Selena Gomez.
However, the pair got back in touch in June 2018 after reconnecting as friends at a Hillsong church service in Manhattan and now they are husband and wife.
Hayiley told the magazine: “One day Justin walked into Hillsong and was like, ‘Hey, you got older.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, what’s up?’
“Over time he became my best guy friend. I was running around with him as his homie, but we weren’t hanging out [romantically].”
We’re so happy for these two!
