Hailey Baldwin is hopefully listening to her uncle all about this right now!
The 21-year-old model is in the middle of a whirlwind engagement to now-fiance Justin Bieber, 24, but considering the pair is SO young and in love… a little adult guidance from Alec Baldwin probably wouldn’t hurt!

The veteran actor was at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday for the premiere of The Public, when he was asked about Hailey and Justin — and he had some sage advice about spending time with family and really putting in the work to get to know your partner, even when young!
The 60-year-old Baldwin said to etalk (below):
“People who get married young — and they are very young — I want them to just spend time with each other. Obviously, him, in particular, has this crazy superstar career. I’m quite a bit older than both of them, but I got married recently, a few years ago. And my wife [Hilaria Baldwin] and I had four kids in four-and-a-half years. We have a lot of little kids.”
Can’t even imagine how crazy it is sometimes at the Baldwin house with four little ones running around!!

Alec continued, too, getting real about the pressures of showbiz and how important it is to carve out quality time together if the pair is to maintain their relationship (below):
“The thing is, all the work I do now is based on my family. There’s movies I got offered where they say, ‘Come leave town for five weeks. And no, we can’t travel your family with you. We don’t have that in the budget.’ And I pass because I don’t want to be away from my family. And I hope they realize that. If you want to have a successful marriage, you have to be together. You gotta stay together.”
Thoughts, Perezcious readers?! With so much advice like this from their elders flying around, think Justin and Hailey will make it??
