Hailey Baldwin Shared the Sweetest Throwback Photo of Justin Bieber Snuggling a Stuffed Animal
Hailey Baldwin shared an adorable throwback photo of Justin Bieber to her Instagram Story on Friday, giving fans a cute glimpse of her husband as a little kid.
The photo seemingly shows the singer, now 24, at preschool age. The tiny Bieber is wearing a polo shirt and clutching a grey stuffed animal to his chest.
Baldwin, 22, captioned the image of Bieber “Bubbbbbaaaa,” including a series of heart emojis and emotional emojis.
Last Sunday, Baldwin and Bieber were photographed together while Bieber was seen riding his skateboard through the busy streets of New York City to meet up with his wife for lunch on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
Earlier this month, multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE that Bieber is receiving counseling for depression.
“Justin seems down and tired. He has been struggling a bit,” a source said, adding that the pop star’s difficulties aren’t related to his recent marriage.
“It has nothing to do with Hailey — he is very happy being married to her. It’s just something else that he struggles with mentally,” the source continued. “He has good help around him and is receiving some treatment. He seems confident he will feel better soon.”
Another source who has spent time with Bieber over the years told PEOPLE that the singer is “emotional and struggles a lot with the idea of fame.”
“He started off as a typical sweet, Canadian teen. He was such a great kid, honestly super sweet and very polite and nice to everyone around him. Having this huge amount of fame completely changed him,” the source said. “He had access to anything and everything and was surrounded by people who just said ‘Yes.’ ”
“He’s emotional and struggles a lot with the idea of fame — being followed, having his every move stalked by fans, cameras in his face. It all sets him off and he often feels like everyone is out to get him,” the source added.
Bieber and Baldwin wed in a secret courthouse ceremony in New York on Sept. 13.
In order for Bieber to focus on his mental health, the singer and Baldwin have decided to push back their religious wedding.
“They will have a wedding ceremony with family and friends eventually,” a source told PEOPLE. “However, right now, Justin’s focus is getting well mentally.”
The source added: “Justin is doing okay. He is very focused and committed to getting help. Hailey is very supportive — Justin is very open about that Hailey does nothing but help him. He would feel even more lost without Hailey — he is very grateful. They are both focused on having a happy marriage.”
