She said: ‘I feel grown-up in many ways and have been married for almost four years. I’m happier than I have ever been, but I still have moments where I feel very insecure and like I don’t belong anywhere.

‘I feel like people don’t take me seriously, and this whole industry is very interesting. It feels like I’m living in a simulation sometimes.’

Hailey looked absolutely stunning in the accompanying photoshoot as she sported a pink knitted look from Rodarte.

She also showcased her impressive abs in a tiny black top by Are You Am I along with white Commesi boxers and brown pans by Willy Chavarria.

Hailey told the publication she truly feels comfortable in her skin as she explained: ‘I really have never felt sexier in my life.

‘I’m in a phase where I feel more beautiful and confident than ever before just by letting my real skin show and my natural hair grow. I just want to be healthy.’

There were plenty close-up snaps of Hailey’s face as she promoted her new skincare range which is named after her middle name of Rhode.

As she will face stiff competition in the flooded celebrity beauty market against names like Kyle Jenner, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Kim Kardashian, the star has a rather realistic view on launching a company of her own.

Hailey said: ‘If someone picked up Rhode and had no idea that that’s my middle name and they tried the product, liked it, and then happened to find out it’s mine, that would make me very happy.

‘In a world full of beauty brands, I think one that’s affordable with great formulas that will bring a vibe to your bathroom speaks for itself.’

Hailey’s aim with her new range is purely focused on the consumer and not on her overall vibe.

She said: ‘If people associate me with the clean or minimal aesthetic, then so be it. But my thing is just encouraging people to embrace what makes them feel good.’

During her health crisis earlier this year, it was reported at the time that Justin would not leave his wife’s side during her traumatic ordeal.

Sources told People in March, Justin ‘is probably more traumatized than even she is.’

‘When it happened, there was a lot of panic. Justin was crying, because you don’t expect your young wife to have symptoms that resemble a stroke. Justin texted everyone he knew and asked everyone to pray for her, and he never left her side,’ the insider said.

Justin had recently recovered from a bout of COVID-19 just weeks prior where he was forced to reschedule a few dates of his tour, his first major set of performances since ending the Purpose world tour in 2017.

Hailey revealed on Instagram she was hospitalized in Palm Springs back in March following ‘stroke-like’ symptoms, and found out she actually suffered a ‘small blood clot.’

Sources told PEOPLE magazine that Justin has been worried sick about his wife despite her pleas for him to stay as stress-free as possible as she recovers from the incident.

‘Hailey doesn’t want anyone to worry about her, but it was a terrifying situation for both of them,’ the insider said. ‘Justin is still very worried. He can barely sleep. He stays up watching her while she rests.’

The insider added: ‘He would’ve done anything to help her. It was a moment for them both to be reminded about mortality, and focusing on what really matters.

‘He realizes, and is telling people around him, how much Hailey is his rock, and how she saved him from a dark time … and that he needs to appreciate her every day. He’s going to keep an eye on her and help her however he can. And he has everyone around him praying for her continued good health. It shook him up.’

Hailey detailed the ordeal online in a lengthy Instagram post: ‘On Thursday morning, I was sitting at breakfast with my husband when I started having stroke-like symptoms and was taken to the hospital.’

‘They found I had suffered a very small blood clot to my brain, which caused a small lack of oxygen, but my body had passed it on its own and I recovered completely within a few hours.’

She added: ‘Although this was definitely one of the scariest moments I’ve ever been through, I’m home now and doing well, and I’m so grateful and thankful to all the amazing doctors and nurses who took care of me!’

‘Thank you to everyone who has reached out with well wishes and concern, and for all the support and love.’

According to sources close to her, Hailey’s medical condition was affecting her movement in some way and they shared that she had undergone tests to find the origin of her illness.
