Hailey Bieber has opened up about the 'struggles' she and Justin faced in their first year of marriage

Hailey Bieber has opened up about the "struggles" she and Justin faced in their first year of marriage.

The couple first tied the knot in September 2018 at a courthouse in New York. The following year, they exchanged vows again - this time, in front of their family and friends.

The 23-year-old spoke to Elle about why they decided to postpone their big wedding and the singer's private health battle.

“When we first got married, we were just figuring out our life together. I felt like putting a wedding in the middle of all of that would be really hectic and stressful," she said.

The model added that her husband was dealing with a health scare and "a bunch of medical stuff" which the doctors weren't able to provide a diagnosis for at first.

“He was really sick. He has Lyme disease, and he was dealing with a bunch of medical stuff. We didn’t have a diagnosis. And it was hard because everybody from the outside was being super mean and judgmental, saying he looked like he was on drugs, saying how unhealthy he looked, when in truth, he was not healthy and we didn’t know why," Hailey continued.

“We went straight into figuring out the hard stuff. Because you never know what can happen with someone’s health. When you don’t know what’s happening, it’s really scary. And then you have the opinions of everybody from the outside, and it just sucks."

“It was months of me being a new wife trying to help him figure out what was wrong and what was going on. Now he’s perfectly healthy. But going through that and then trying to be like, ‘So where does our wedding fit into this?’ didn’t feel like the vibe at all.”
