On Sunday, the couple shared photos of themselves with Hailey’s newborn niece Iris Elle. The model’s sister Alaia Baldwin welcomed her first child with her husband Andrew Aronow on August 17.
‘My baby niece iris ... the most squishy cute gumdrop ever!! Love you @alaiabaldwin and @andrewaronow ! She's so precious! [sic]’ the singer captioned a photograph of himself on Instagram with his niece.
Hailey also shared a photograph of herself cradling the newborn with the caption: ‘Aunties girl.’
The couple’s photos prompted speculation over when they might start a family.
In a comment shared by the Instagram account Comments By Celebs, Johnson wrote on Justin’s photo: ‘This image pretty much seals the deal.
‘Fully expect you and H to have a baby in 2021. [sic]’
Another fan commented, 'You look so good with a kid bro' while one gushed, 'You'll look so good as a DAD!!! [sic]'
However, some fans suggested speculation about the couple becoming parents one day is 'invasive and inappropriate'.
'Nobody knows anything about a couple’s reproductive journey, and we shouldn’t be urging people to do the thing they’re supposed to do now because we think it’s time,' one wrote on the Comments By Celebs post.
Another added: 'I thought we as a society agreed that if/when a couple had a baby was none of our business. [sic].'
'They will be raised knowing how to treat people, why we don’t say certain things, and why we respect and acknowledge and give credit where credit is due,' she told the publication.
Despite predictions flooding in as to when the couple may become parents, the couple have regularly stated that they want to wait a while before welcoming children.
‘I want to start my own family in due time,’ Bieber told Apple Music's Zane Lowe in February. ‘I want to enjoy being married for a little bit, go on tour, be married, enjoy traveling with just us, build more of our relationship. I think that it's definitely the next step, for sure.’
In March, he echoed this sentiment during a game of ‘Burning Questions’ with Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show.
When questioned how many kids he and Hailey hope to have in the future, the star said: ‘I think it's up to Hailey because it's her body.’
Last July, the ‘Yummy’ singer captioned captioned a photograph of himself and his wife at Disney World, Florida and mused about his hopes to have children with her.
‘Love dates with you baby.. one day Ill be doing daddy daughter dates..... not hinting at anything soon I’m not in a rush,’ he captioned the photo. 'I just wanna enjoy you by yourself for a while! [sic].'
On April Fool’s Day last year, the star shared a picture of a baby scan without a caption, prompting his fans to speculate that he and Hailey were expecting a child. Another photograph showed his wife holding onto her stomach in a doctor’s room.
‘Very funny,’ his wife responded to the post, confirming that the pair were joking with their fans.
