The 22-year-old, who’s married to Justin Bieber, told Bustle that she made the decision to change her name after asking her dad, Stephen Baldwin, for his opinion.
“I’m very proud of my family name,” Hailey said. “I come from a great family with a history in this industry. I remember when I was going to change it, I asked my dad if he was going to be upset and he was like, ‘No! I don’t care. We love you. All good, everyone still knows you’re a Baldwin.’ It’s true.”

Justin and Hailey married in a courthouse in September 2018, just after dating for three months.
The model told Bustle that she’s adapting to hearing her new name.
“It took some getting used to, for sure,” she said. “It’s definitely strange, it takes adjusting.”
In an interview with Vogue, Hailey said marriage is difficult.
“The thing is, marriage is very hard,” Hailey said. “That is the sentence you should lead with. It’s really effing hard.”
She added: “But there’s something beautiful about it anyway – about wanting to fight for something, commit to building with someone. We’re really young, and that’s a scary aspect. We’re going to change a lot. But we’re committed to growing together and supporting each other in those changes.”
