Hailey Bieber says she's scared and cries 'all the time' about raising kids in the public eye
Hailey Bieber said she got emotional at the thought of having children in the public eye.
The model told The Sunday Times she was "scared," but wanted children within five years.
"I can't imagine having to confront people saying things about a child," Hailey, 26, said.
Hailey Bieber said she was "scared" about raising children in the public eye.
During an interview with The Sunday Times, the model and founder of Rhode Skin opened up about having children with her husband, Justin Bieber. Justin, 29, and Hailey, 26, met at one of one of his fan events in 2009 when she was 12.
As Insider previously reported, they dated non-exclusively for a while in 2016 before splitting up. They reconnected in 2018, and Justin proposed while they were on vacation in the Bahamas.
But when it comes to building a family together, Hailey appears to have certain reservations from having lived her own life so publicly.
Asked how she felt about having children that would live privileged but ultra-publicized lives, Hailey said: "I literally cry about this all the time."
"I want kids so bad but I get scared. It's enough that people say things about my husband or my friends. I can't imagine having to confront people saying things about a child," she added. "We can only do the best we can to raise them. As long as they feel loved and safe."
Both Hailey and Justin have spoken about parenthood since their 2018 wedding. In 2020, Justin told Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show that he was happy letting Hailey decide when and how many children they would have.
"It's her body and whatever she wants to do," he said. "Hailey still has some things she wants to accomplish as a woman."
In 2022, the year she launched Rhode Skin, Hailey spoke to The Wall Street Journal about how she's waiting to have children.
"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," she said.
