It has been years since Bieber Fever swept the globe. One of the few patients remaining with chronic Bieber Fever is Hailey Baldwin.
As it turns out, she also has a bit of Baby Fever. This is a true there are two wolves inside you situation.
Hailey has more financial stability than most people can dream of. Her sister has a kid. She has a husband.
But even though she feels ready to become a mom, the sad pressures of the spotlight make her “scared” to bring a child into the world.
In a recent interview with the Sunday Times, Hailey Bieber spoke about her thoughts on growing her family.
She admitted that she wants to have a baby “so bad” despite being only 26 years old.
However, she admitted that she feels “scared” to actually go through with it. That makes sense — becoming a parent is a massive, lifelong undertaking.
“I literally cry about this all the time,” Hailey then admitted.
The source of her tears? Immense public pressure stemming from their fame and, largely, from her husband’s reputation (and publicity baggage). Not that Hailey has not played a role herself.
“It’s enough that people say things about my husband or my friends,” Hailey expressed. “I can’t imagine having to confront people saying things about a child.”
However, Hailey figures that she will eventually take that step and become a parent.
When she does, she reasoned, she can only do her “best” to ensure that her future children “feel loved and safe.”
That is all that she and The Biebs can do. Of course, there are choices that they can make between now and parenthood to set up their kids to inherit less of a PR burden.
Simply put, both Justin and Hailey have made mistakes while in the spotlight.
These errors in judgment have haunted them as individuals and as a couple.
While it is totally unfair — as unfair as maligning Hailey just because her dad sucks, even enough to be mentioned out of a whole group of brothers who famously suck — this could mean blowback on their kids. One day.
Infamously, Justin has a string of bad behavior in his personal history.
We don’t just mean angry outbursts, spitting from a balcony while his fans cheer below, or some less than savory choices in company.
Unfortunately, part of his negative reputation stems from the circumstances under which he and Hailey became engaged.
In early 2018, Justin had spent months wooing Selena Gomez, his ex, worming his way back into her heart.
That spring, the two of them broke up. Thankfully, this was the last time. Her fans had been holding their breath, fearing that his reported eagerness to marry would condemn her to an unenviable fate.
Then, just a couple of months after their split, he suddenly started hanging out with a different ex, even going on the same dates. That ex was Hailey. Within weeks, he proposed. And within a matter of months, they married.
So yes, Justin’s pattern of behavior has left people raising their eyebrows.
Meanwhile, Hailey’s only real error has been appearing to copy — and even shade — Selena. Which seems unfair. And if she’s doing it, she should stop.
But none of that should reflect upon a child. That said … these two will probably want to take all of the time that they can before making such a monumental decision. They have plenty of time.
