It’s not all married bliss, but there’s definitely a lot of it to go around. Pop star Justin Bieber, and new wife, Hailey Baldwin, had a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday, but also a lot to reflect on. After the festivities were over –– some of which were in celebration of the model’s 22nd birthday, which fell on Thanksgiving this year –– the 24-year-old crooner took to Instagram to give his thoughts on his first married holiday. Marriage Boot Camp star Dr. V sat down with Life & Style and gave us her expert opinion about Justin and Hailey’s relationship.

It’s really nice to know Justin shares similar relationship struggles with us and that he’s also reflecting on his life amidst one of the coziest and most loving holidays of the year, as many of us do. “Happy late Thanksgiving to everyone,” he captioned a beautiful photo of the snowy woods on his Instagram on Nov 23. “First Thanksgiving as a married man, first time hosting Thanksgiving. First time both sides of the family has come together. Relationships are hard and love isn’t always easy but thank you Jesus for showing me how! Every day is a learning process, trying to be more like him, patient, kind, selfless, boy I got a long way! But God’s grace is sufficient!” Who doesn’t love someone dedicated to improving themselves? We support ya, Biebs.

But Justin’s Insta caption seems pretty telling –– first married Thanksgiving and “love isn’t always easy.” Could there possibly be trouble in paradise? Eh. We doubt it. See, they looked pretty dang in love while celebrating the newlywed holiday double whammy of Thanksgiving AND Hailey’s big 22nd birthday.

Anyone who got a glimpse of some adorable Insta stories shot by Justin’s mom, Pattie Mallette, would know the couple was really showing the love this Thanksgiving. Multiple clips from Pattie’s Insta stories show a ‘Happy Birthday’ serenade, Justin’s declaration that Hailey is the “love of [his] life,” and a birthday cake to the face for the newly minted 22-year-old missus.

Hailey even took to Instagram herself to show how thankful she was this holiday –– and the photo of Justin smooching her post-birthday-cake-face-smash is just TOO cute. First married holiday in the books, kids. Congrats!
