On Monday, Justin and Hailey shared the same selfie on their social media accounts as they spent some time together.
The Canadian singer shared his with no caption, while the model wrote that he was her “best friend” on hers.
In the picture, the 26-year-old singer looked seriously at the camera as his 23-year-old bride smiled happily next to him.

He wrote alongside it: “Hey you! Did you know that you are special? Did you know that when God see’s you he smiles?
“Be encouraged this Sunday knowing that you were designed for GREATNESS! You are forgiven and you are loved! Wow.”
The Sorry hitmaker also talked about “refining his heart” while sharing a video of himself performing onstage.
Justin wrote: “All my life I felt in my heart I was supposed to entertain. I had been given these abilities that I wanted to showcase.
“My heart as I get older is to ask god to refine my heart. To make sure my intention remains pure.
“My intention is to inspire, uplift, empower and lead people to know and see the love of God. To remind people of the joy and wonder that is all around us.”
He added: “Fear of rejection can scare us away from our full potential. But asking God to use us even when we’re scared takes the pressure off of us and reminds us that he is in control.”
Carl Lentz was allegedly seeing more than three women while married[/caption]
However, the Yummy singer might be in for a shock when he finds out that it wasn’t just Ranin that Carl was seeing, but at least three other women.
The explosive new allegations were exposed through the investigation that is currently ongoing at megachurch Hillsong NYC, a source close to the organization told The Sun.
After Carl, 42, was terminated for “breach of trust” and “moral failures” after cheating on his wife-of-17-years, church founder Brian Houston announced an investigation is underway.

Following the organization’s proclamation of a deep dive into various claims, a church insider exclusively told The Sun more affairs have already allegedly been exposed.
“Three other women, maybe even more, have come forward in the investigation with allegations of having an affair with Carl,” the informant said.
However, the source said the ladies “do not want any media attention” so will likely “not be going public” for now.
The insider alleged that the father-of-three’s infidelity has been going on for the last “five or six years.”
Reps for both Carl and Hillsong were not immediately available for comment when contacted by The Sun.
Carl had helped Justin through a lot of tough periods[/caption]
Over the weekend, a Hillsong Church statement confirmed that they were appointing a third party legal team to investigate “wider cultural issues” inside the church and that they were taking all concerns “extremely seriously.”
“Since last week’s announcement of a leadership change at Hillsong East Coast, we have heard from a number of people about their experiences and concerns.
“It is important that we establish the truth and then do everything we can to ensure our church is both a safe place and one that seeks to glorify God in all that we say and do,” the statement read.
The church continued: “For this reason we have decided to appoint a New York based legal firm that is not associated or affiliated with Hillsong to conduct an in-depth review and investigation into all concerns and any wider cultural issues.

“We are taking this extremely seriously and on the basis of this report, we will be better positioned to take whatever actions are deemed necessary to right the wrongs and see Hillsong East Coast move forward in a way that enables many more people to find hope in Jesus.”
Justin’s former best pal was one of the lead pastors at Hillsong NYC before being fired for a “revelation of moral failures” and “breach of trust.”
One day later, it was confirmed he had been engaged in a months-long affair.
Laura was also fired from Hillsong[/caption]
The celebrity pastor’s wife Laura – who was another pastor at Hillsong East Coast – was also let go, with sources telling The Sun that church leaders told them: “If a married couple both work at the church and one of them is terminated, they both will be fired immediately.”
The Sun exclusively spoke to Ranin, a 34-year-old designer from New York City who opened up about dating the married church leader for over five months.
The pair met in May at Domino Park in Brooklyn, New York, when he approached her to flirt and make small talk.
However, she claimed Carl lied about his true identity and told her he was an unmarried sports agent.

Laura and Carl have been trying to make their marriage work[/caption]
Their relationship took an explosive turn after she claimed Carl’s wife saw all of their messages – including “naughty photos” – which were connected to his work computer at the church office while several other co-workers were also present.
As The Sun exclusively reported, Carl and Laura are attempting to make their marriage work as divorce is “the last thing” they want for their family.
According to a source close to the Lentz’s, the family quietly moved to Los Angeles last week as they try to make a “fresh start.”
