Hailey Baldwin admits that it isn't always easy to be romantically linked to someone as famous as Justin Bieber.
The 19-year-old model landed one of Marie Claire's Fresh Face covers, along with Kylie Jenner, Zendaya, Ellie Goulding and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and opened up about her relationship with the 22-year-old pop star. "I don't want attention out of dating somebody," she tells the publication. "It's hard to date somebody in this industry. You have to have really thick skin and be very strong."
Baldwin says that "texts started coming through" and "crazy phone calls" after reports swirled in January that she was dating Bieber.
"You have to focus on the person and nothing else," she adds.
In February, Baldwin gushed to ET about Bieber. "He's really funny. We have a good time together," Baldwin said. "He's just really sweet. He's a good kid, he has a good heart and I love him."
She also revealed that her parents, Stephen and Kennya Baldwin, approve of the "Sorry" singer. "Both my parents like him a lot."
