Everything Justin and Hailey Bieber Have Said About Having Children and Starting a Family

Justin and Hailey Bieber have been married for three years, and ever since they began dating in 2015, fans of the A-list couple have been patiently awaiting the news of a child on the way.

Parenthood isn't at the top of the list for the young couple, but both Justin, 27, and Hailey Bieber, 25, have spoken openly about their plans for starting a family and their future.

Newsweek has everything you need to know.

What Justin and Hailey Bieber Have Said About Having Children

Justin and Hailey Bieber have made it very clear throughout their relationship that they do plan to start a family. However, it may not be anytime soon.

In the past, Hailey Bieber had spoken about her desire to become a young mother, but in recent months, it looks like that may have changed.

Speaking to The Wall Street Journal in early February 2022, Hailey Bieber shared she wanted to focus on her career at the moment.

Hailey Bieber is a hugely successful supermodel, working with big names such as Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Vogue and Moschino.

She said: "There's this thing that happens for women when you get married. Everybody always assumes it's: First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby. Well, what about all the things I want to accomplish in my business?

"I think I had it ingrained in my head that I was going to want to have kids right away and I was going to want to have kids super, super young. Then I turned 25 and I'm like, I'm still super, super young!"

Justin Bieber appears to be a little keener to start a family in the near future, but he is, of course, waiting until Hailey is ready.

In his 2021 documentary, Justin Bieber: Our World, he revealed his plans to "make sure I put my family first, and hopefully we squish out a nugget," to which Hailey Bieber replied: "in 2021?"

Justin Bieber is then seen asking his wife: "The end of 2021? We start trying?" When Hailey Bieber replied with uncertainty, he responded: "It's up to you, babe."

Two years prior, in December 2020, Bieber told Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on her show that he wants to have more than one child.

He shared: "I am going to have as many [kids] as Hailey is wishing to push out," he said. "I'd love to have myself a little tribe. But, yeah, it's her body and whatever she wants to do. I think she wants to have a few.

"There's not really an issue, but I think Hailey still has some things she wants to accomplish as a woman. And I think she just is not ready yet, and I think that's OK."

In July 2019, just one year into the marriage, Bieber posted on Instagram his hopes to become a father to a daughter.

Alongside an image of himself and Hailey at Disney World, Justin Bieber wrote: "Love dates with you baby.. one day I'll be doing daddy-daughter dates..... not hinting at anything soon I'm not in a rush. I just wanna enjoy you by yourself for a while! #Disneyworld"

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin began dating in 2015 and after a few years of being on and off, Bieber popped the question in July 2018 during a holiday to the Bahamas.

They married in September 2018 and have been going strong ever since.
