While we were all still guessing whether or not Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin had really tied the knot, Hailey confirmed the rumors in November by changing her Instagram handle to “Hailey Bieber.”

The name change may have seemed easy at the time, but Hailey tells Bustle “it took some getting used to.” She adds, “It’s definitely strange. It takes adjusting.”

She says at first she hesitated to take Bieber’s name, given the family history of her own last name.

“I’m very proud of my family name,” she says. “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 [Stephen Baldwin] 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.’”

Meanwhile, Hailey is reportedly helping her husband through a tough time as of late. People reported Tuesday that Justin is currently seeking treatment for depression.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Hailey was the one who “pushed” him to go to therapy after she noticed a change in how he was sleeping.

"One of the reasons Hailey knew he needed more help was his sleep patterns," a source tells ET. "He's been sleeping far more than usual, and struggles to get out of bed until very late into the morning or early afternoon."

The source says Justin had already been struggling with depression before he and Hailey got together last year.
