The 23-year-old model was recently interviewed by Vogue Italia in the lead up to the pair’s three year anniversary, where she was asked about her and Justin’s lovey-dovey romance. It’s hard to imagine but, as she told the outlet, earlier in the relationship, she struggled to come to terms with kissing her current husband in public.
“It was difficult for me to understand how to carry on a relationship like this, experienced under the eyes of all,” she told Vogue Italia. “But there comes a time when you have to embrace reality and admit who you are.”
“For a long time I couldn’t do it: I didn’t kiss him in public, I didn’t like the idea of people watching us at certain moments… but I realised that it is a battle that in the long run, instead of protecting you, exhausts you. The fact is, we love each other. And there is really nothing to hide.”
According to Insider, the pair first met at a Hillsong Church event in New York City in November 2014. Eight years later and there they were in a New York City Hall in secret, exchanging rings, and publicly saying “yes” in a church surrounded by friends and family a few months later on the 30th of September 2019.
“We are two people who work hard to have a healthy relationship,” she told Vogue Italia. “And we want to be an example, and an inspiration, so that people all over the world value healthy relationships.”
“I am the one who thinks, he is the one who feels,” she continued. “I am logical, he is emotional. He is an artist and I am a thinker, and when I solve a problem I always do it with my mind.”
“Over time he is helping me to bring out the emotions and I help him be more analytical. This balancing of souls is also sensual.”
