Hailey shared the blood clot had escaped through the hole in her heart and traveled to her brain, resulting in the TIA. She later had a PFO closure procedure.
“I feel great,” she continued. “The biggest thing I feel honestly is I just feel really relieved that we were able to figure everything out, that we were able to get it closed, that I will be able to just move on from this really scary situation and just live my life.”
In June of that year, Justin experienced his own health scare and shared he was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which caused temporary paralysis in parts of his face and led him to postpone his Justice World Tour shows before eventually canceling the concert series.
Throughout both experiences, the couple leaned on each other.
“I think the silver lining of it, honestly, is that it brings us a lot closer ’cause you’re going through this together,” Hailey told Good Morning America later that month. “You’re being there for each other, you’re supporting each other and there’s just something that really bonds you through these times.”
