Hailey Baldwin is setting new priorities And spending time with her fiancé and her family has been placed above modelling. This new development was confirmed on Monday during an interview with the 21-year old model at Carolina Herrera’s New York Fashion Week show. Hailey was asked about her opinion on the comment her uncle, Alec Balwin made concerning her engagement to Justin Beiber.
Alec Baldwin said during an interview at the 2018 TIFF with eTalk that “People who get married young, and they are very young, I want them to just spend time with each other. Obviously, he in particular has this crazy superstar career. When you’re married… Like right now, I’m quite a bit older than both of them but I got married recently a few years ago,” Alec continued. “And my wife and I had four kids in four and a half years. We have a lot of little kids. The thing is, all the work I do now is based on my family.”
Alec added that “There’s movies I got offered where they say ‘Come leave town for five weeks. No we can’t travel your family with you, we don’t have that in the budget’. And I pass, because I don’t want to be away from my family. And I hope that they realize that! If you want to have a successful marriage, you have to be together. You gotta stay together.”
When Hailey was asked to say something about what her uncle had said, she told WWD that “I hadn’t heard this yet, so you’re actually the first telling me. But that sounds like very sound, solid advice. He’s just trying to look out for me.”
And about Alec’s advice to put family before work, Hailey said “It’s smart, and it’s important. You have to always put family above work, no matter what.”
Hailey has showed up in several New York fashion week shows, but the model has however been choosy on which of them she walks in. Miss Baldwin told WWD “I’ve tried to be really choosy with fashion week going forward, just because I want to have the time to spend being relaxed and being with family — and my fiancé.”
Hailey and Justin got engaged two months ago during a vacation at the Bahamas. A source told E! News at the time that “The proposal was a very happy moment and Hailey was taken off guard, Her face was in shock but you could tell they are both so in love.”
Despite the love the couple has received from fans, there have been some negative vibes on social media as expected. When Hailey was asked how she deals with all that negativity she said “I don’t think it’s affected me really. I have learned to just try my best to ignore the negativity at this time so that I can enjoy this season of my life.”
