In a happier, romantic narrative, Justin Bieber proposed to Stephen’s daughter Hailey in 2018. The news stunned the public but Stephen was at total peace about the union. Apparently, Bieber made the right move and asked him for his blessing to marry Hailey – this, among other things, must have won Stephen’s respect and approval.
In fact, he was glad to give his blessing. When Bieber proposed to Hailey, the 23-year-old called her parents to find out what they thought of her engagement. She confessed that this was what she wanted, but she needed to know that her parents supported them.
Family: His Inspiration
For his new Netflix series, "Northern Rescue," Billy said that the project held a special inspiration for him: his family. He said that his role resonated with him because his character (John West) has three kids, all nearly the same ages as his own children.
The character’s parental role is central to the show’s plot and easily connected to Billy’s real-life role as a dad to three kids. It is fascinating how, so often, art imitates life.
The Latest: Stephen
Stephen has been in the news recently for his political beliefs, which have clashed with the rest of his family, including both of his daughters. Though his relationship with his brothers may be strained, he appears to still be on good terms with both Alaia and Hailey.
Politics aside, career wise, things are looking up for Stephen as he is also slated to appear in some smaller film projects.
Two Families Unite
Before Hailey and Bieber got engaged, Stephen already knew the megastar. In 2009, Alec had given Stephen and Hailey tickets to see Bieber perform live on the Today Show.
Stephen and Justin’s mother, Pattie Mallette, are born-again Christians, which is something they reportedly bonded over.
All About Alaia
Stephen also has an older daughter, Alaia, who is 26. Like Hailey, she has also done modeling but generally keeps a lower profile. Though she shares very different political beliefs from her father, the two seem to still have a good relationship.
Alaia is married to filmmaker Andrew Aronow and just had a baby daughter, making Stephen a first-time grandpa!
