It's a case of new year, new romance for Justin Bieber.

The What Do You Mean singer spent New Year's with his rumoured new love interest Hailey Baldwin, an old friend with even older Hollywood connections...

The Credentials:

Age: 19

Where From: New York, via Tucson, Arizona

Occupation: Model (obviously)

 

1. Her father is actor Stephen Baldwin

Stephen might be the second most famous Baldwin brother (that honour goes to Uncle Alec), but thanks to her A-list connections and model looks, Hailey is emerging as the best known of the next generation. Sorry Ireland.

2. She travels with a famous squad

Her inner circle reads like a who's who of young Hollywood - including Kendall (her BFF) and Kylie Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Devon Windsor. She's the epitome of an Instagram 'it girl' - 3.2m followers thanks to a famous last name and a penchant for pouting.

3. She's been modelling most of her life

She's currently signed with Heroes Models and Storm Model Management in London, and while her star is still on the rise, she's already worked with Topshop, French Connection, Tommy Hilfiger and LOVE Magazine. Previously, she was signed with Ford Models in New York, before switching agencies last year.

4. She was homeschooled

Like the Jenners, Hailey says she struggled with attending a mainstream school with a famous last name. "The thing that was annoying about having an uncle that’s in 30 Rock is that kids [her age] didn’t understand it. They’re like, ‘What?’ Then they’re like, ‘You have to go away to LA with your dad, what?’ And they didn’t get that. And that’s what I’ve struggled with my whole life in school, too," she told LOVE Magazine.

5. She's no stranger to Bieber

Her ties to the Biebs go back as far as 2014. The pair have been long-time friends, but things apparently only turned romantic in recent months - around the same time Justin's ex Selena began hooking up with One Direction's Niall Horan.
