Hailey Baldwin’s mildly inconvenient genetic condition just jumped to the top of the list of things that I couldn’t care less about.
But, it’s Friday, and we’re here, so we might as well go into it.
Hailey went to the launch of her husband Justin Bieber’s new YouTube docu-series, Justin Bieber: Seasons, where she was photographed snogging him (this must have been a live reenactment of the documentary, which is mostly snogging).
In one of the pictures, while on a break from the snogging, her pinky finger looks a little weird.
A few people pointed this out on social media, prompting Hailey to make an Insta-story about it.
Seventeen with a breakdown of the post:
After getting tons of questions about it, Hailey ended up revealing her crooked pinky finger is something she’s dealt with all her life because of a genetic condition.
“Ok, let’s get into the pinky conversation…because I’ve made fun of myself about this for forever so I might as well just tell everyone else why they’re so crooked and scary,” Hailey wrote on her Instagram stories.
“I have this thing called Ectrodactyly and it causes my pinky fingers to look the way they do. It’s genetic, I’ve had it my whole life. So people can stop asking me, ‘wtf is wrong with her pinky fingers’. Here is what’s wrong. Lol,” she wrote in a second post.
Ectrodactyly affects people in different ways and to different degrees. Some people are missing entire digits or have deformities that can impair their ability to walk.
Hailey has a slightly crooked finger.
She ends with a message for the haters:
You heard her, guys. Stop making fun of the slightly crooked pinky finger that she’s had to live with her whole life, and that’s so horrifying and scary that no one noticed it until now.
