How Did Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin Meet?

Relive the First Time Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin Met — Was It Love at First Sight?

Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber shocked the world when they took their one-month rekindled romance to the next level with an engagement in the Bahamas over the weekend. While we've seen sparks fly between the on-again, off-again partners since 2015 during New Year's Eve parties and even on a low-key beach trip, it's hard to believe they were ever not a sexy duo with off-the-charts chemistry. Back in 2009, when Justin was just a pop star on the rise with a killer haircut and Hailey was a preteen with a modelling career ahead of her, the two were introduced by her dad, actor Steven Baldwin, and it was all caught on camera.

In the video, Justin is thrilled to meet Steven, who gave him a skateboarding DVD, but the most cringeworthy moment of all comes when a high-energy Justin meets Hailey with a handshake. We all had that awkward tween stage, but these two are proof that you can find your soulmate even before growth spurts and haircuts! Watch the video above to check out the adorably awkward moment in all of its glory.
