Justin Beiber confessed in an interview recently that his first year of marriage to Hailey Baldwin was tough as a result of lack of trust.
The “Peaches” crooner also revealed that his road to redemption from substance abuse was as a result of the help of his faith and his wife Hailey Baldwin, but the latter had to first overcome the residual effects of his personal traumas.
During a new interview with GQ magazine, the Justin Beiber confessed his battles with the dark side of fame weren’t fully resolved when he wed the model back in 2018.
The first year of marriage was really tough,” he began. “Because there was a lot, going back to the trauma stuff. There was just lack of trust. There was all these things that you don’t want to admit to the person that you’re with, because it’s scary. You don’t want to scare them off by saying, ‘I’m scared.'”
Despite spending that first year “on eggshells,” Justin Beiber said the couple are now working on “just creating these moments for us as a couple, as a family, that we’re building these memories.”
“It’s amazing that we have that to look forward to,” he added. “Before, I didn’t have that to look forward to in my life. My home life was unstable. Like, my home life was not existing. I didn’t have a significant other. I didn’t have someone to love. I didn’t have someone to pour into. But now I have that.”
In the interview, Justin Beiber admitted he always had a feeling he was “pushed” to be married. “I just felt like that was my calling,” he said. “Just to get married and have babies and do that whole thing.”
In regards to the “babies,” Justin Beiber said, “Not this second, but we will eventually.”
Also in a recent interview with a popular magazine, Hailey Baldwin also admitted she and Justin Beiber had a “very difficult” first year of marriage and still have their fair share of “little fights.” She added, “I think the two of us are grounded by our faith. I’m not saying it’s an easy thing that doesn’t take work. We talk to a therapist. We do what we have to do.”
