Hailey Bieber opens up

Hailey Bieber and her husband Justin sat down for a chat with pals Chelsea and Judah Smith on their In Good Faith podcast this week.

The model very candidly spoke about the struggles she faced in their marriage when he was dealing with mental health issues.

She said she confided in her mother a lot, because she knew her mother had been through so much in her own marriage.

"I remember I called her a few different times..."

"One particular time when we were in Brooklyn and I was calling her, crying, and I was like, 'I just can’t do it.'"

She continued, "'There’s no way that I’m going to be able to do this if it’s going to be like this forever.'"

"And I just remember she was so calm on the phone and she was like, 'It’s going to pass.'"

"'You’re going to be fine and he’s going to be healthy and we’re here for you.'"

Support

Hailey said she had a lot of support in her family and friends.

She said without that, "it would have been ten times harder, and it was already the hardest thing of my life at the time."

"But I also just think I was in it. I made a decision."

"I know for a fact that I’ve loved this person for a very long time and now would not be the time to give up on him."

"I just wouldn’t do that to him," the model insisted.

"Imagine abandoning somebody in the middle of the worst time of their life, potentially. I’m not that type of a person."

"So I was going to stick it out no matter what the outcome was going to be."

"It was really hard..." She said before Justin chimed in, "And I'm so grateful that you did [stick it out]."

She laughed before continuing, "There were days where I literally was like, 'I don’t know if he’s going to be OK.'"

"Something really deep down inside of me was like, 'He’s going to be through it.' I just didn’t know how long it was going to take."

Justin shares his experiences

Justin then explained what he was going through at the time, admitting he was having, "outer body experiences."

"I think it was just time that healed things, just us showing up for each other every day, being consistent, me seeing that she wasn’t going anywhere."

"I think I had a lot of, like, rejection issues, that I had to just fight through."

"But just her just continuously showing up every day and being there for me. I just kept seeing that over and over and over."

"And it just became more secure, and more secure with where we're at in our relationship."

"...we’re gonna keep fighting..."

Hailey added, "Neither of us were going to be the person to say, 'I quit.'"

"Neither of us were going to be the one to walk away from the situation."

"Because we were just both like, 'Hey, we chose to fight for this, so we’re gonna keep fighting past whatever we need to.'"

The couple tied the knot in secret September 2018.
