Update: Hailey Baldwin just issued a statement refuting the rumors that she and Justin Bieber tied the knot at a New York City courthouse on Thursday. "I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I'm not married yet!" she posted on Twitter.
A source reveals that the pair (who became engaged on July 7th) were legally married in a courthouse ceremony. "They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone," the insider explained, before revealing that "they're going to have a big blowout, in front of God and everyone they love" in the near future. According to a TMZ source, the official celebration could happen as soon as next week—and will likely occur in Canada.
TMZ also obtained a photo of the couple entering the courthouse on Thursday, reporting that Bieber was heard telling Baldwin (wearing an all-white ensemble) that he couldn't wait to marry her. The outlet also alleged that Bieber thanked a court official for keeping things under wraps.
Confused about the fast-paced nature of Bieber and Baldwin's relationship timeline? So are the majority of their fans. Previous reports suggested that they were in no rush to get hitched, since they were thoroughly enjoying the engagement phase. The model seemingly confirmed this in a recent interview with The Cut. "I just picture lights strung everywhere," she mused, after revealing that the couple was working with a wedding planner to bring together a 2019 wedding.
Their ceremony might have been spur-of-the moment, but according to New York law, it's legal. If the couple did, in fact, decide to simultaneously obtain a marriage license and legally wed, the judge likely waived the mandated 24-hour waiting period in order for that same-day wedding to take place.
