Many asked: "Whose child is this?" and the little one belongs to friends of Justin, Jason and Lauren Kennedy. The cute newborn has featured heavily on their own personal Instagram accounts.
Will Justin and Hailey have children soon?
The couple want to have children in the future
Speaking to The Wall Street Journal, Hailey admitted her plans for children have changed. First wanting kids at a "super young" age and now deciding to wait a little longer.
"I think ideally in the next couple of years we would try. But there's a reason they call it try, right? You don’t know how long that process is ever going to take. Definitely no kids this year; that would be a little bit hectic, I think," she said.
The Sorry singer began dating model Hailey in 2015, but they split in January 2016, before reconciling in May 2018. The couple became engaged and married later that year, with tweets confirming their relationship.
They married on 13 September 2018, before hosting a second celebration in South Carolina on 30 September 2019.
