Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber have only been engaged since July, but the couple's upcoming nuptials have already faced the harsh criticism of, well, the entire world. But rather than crumble under the pressure, the 21-year-old bride-to-be is apparently refusing to let it bring her down.

Ever since the pop star and model announced their whirlwind engagement (while they have known each other for years, they only rekindled their romance a few months before getting engaged), mean comments have abounded scrutinizing the subject. Any piece of new information—like how the celebrity couple is planning on an intimate wedding, Baldwin's enormous glitzy diamond engagement ring, or who will be her bridesmaids—sets off a frenzy of Internet hate mainly about the validity of their love and the reasons for their engagement.

(No, Baldwin is not pregnant.)

But, it seems, Baldwin has learned to embrace her excitement despite it all. The model told Stellar magazine of Australia's Daily Telegraph about taking the high road and ignoring critics. "I'm beyond excited," she said per BuzzFeed. "I have learned to just try my best to ignore the negativity at this time so that I can enjoy this season of my life," she said.

Even though the model has 14.6 million gabby Instagram followers and over a million on Twitter, she doesn't let all of their opinions give her pause on her feelings about marrying 24-year-old Bieber. "I don't think [the negativity] has affected me really," she mused. Could she have learned this cool attitude from reading Bieber's favorite marriage advice book?
