Hailey and Justin Bieber have thrilled fans with the announcement that they are expecting their first child together. The couple, who tied the knot in a secret ceremony in New York in 2018, shared the exciting news on their respective Instagram pages, with Hailey, 27, debuting her growing baby bump in a series of stunning photos and a video from their recent vow renewal ceremony.

In the romantic video clip, the couple is seen kissing, while other shots zoom in on Hailey's stomach, accentuated by her form-fitting white lace dress. The posts, which feature no text other than each other's Instagram usernames, have been met with an outpouring of congratulations from celebrity friends and fans alike, including reality star Kim Kardashian and model Gigi Hadid.

A representative for Hailey confirmed to The Associated Press that the model is just over six months pregnant. The video and photoshoot, according to a press release from fashion house Yves Saint Laurent, were taken during the Biebers' vow renewal ceremony on Thursday in Hawaii.

The pregnancy announcement comes after Hailey addressed rumors about her being pregnant in an October interview with GQ Hype. "Recently, everybody was like, 'Oh my God, she's pregnant,' and that's happened to me multiple times before," she told the outlet. "There is something that's disheartening about, damn, I can't be bloated one time and not be pregnant? It would be a lie if I was like, 'Oh yeah, I don't give a s---.'"


Despite her previous trepidations about raising children in the spotlight, Hailey acknowledged that motherhood is something she looks forward to. "It's also such a private, intimate thing. It's something that's going to come when it comes," she said, adding that it's "hilarious how much people f---ing care" about her body and what she chooses to do with it.

Justin, 30, has long expressed his desire to start a family with Hailey but has respected his wife's timeline. In a December 2020 appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, the "Baby" singer said, "I am going to have as many [babies] as Hailey is wishing to push out. 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."

The couple's journey to parenthood comes amid a challenging year for Justin, who was forced to cancel the remaining dates of his Justice world tour last year due to his ongoing recovery from Ramsay Hunt syndrome, a condition that can cause facial paralysis. However, the singer made a surprise appearance at Coachella last month, performing his 2020 hit single "Essence" alongside Wizkid during a set by Nigerian star Tems.

As the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin and the founder of skincare line Rhode, Hailey has balanced her successful modeling career with her personal life, navigating the challenges of being in the public eye. The couple's pregnancy announcement marks a joyous new chapter in their lives, as they prepare to welcome their first child together.

Fans and well-wishers have flooded social media with messages of support and excitement for the expectant parents, eagerly awaiting updates on Hailey's pregnancy journey and the arrival of the newest member of the Bieber family. As the couple embarks on this new adventure, they can count on the love and support of their dedicated fanbase and the countless people who have followed their story since their early days in the spotlight.
