Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin really had us fooled when they secretly said “I do” last fall, then didn’t confirm it until months later. Although the hot young couple may already be husband and wife, the wedding madness isn’t over yet; they may still have a religious wedding ceremony in the works. Here’s everything we know about the Bieber-Baldwin nuptials so far.
The couple visited the Marriage Bureau on September 13.
TMZ published a photo of Justin and Hailey entering a marriage license courthouse in New York City. The singer reportedly cried at one point of the emotional visit and told his fiancée, “I can’t wait to marry you, baby,” according to a source. Another insider said Bieber thanked a court official for “keeping it on the DL.”
People confirmed the following day Bieber and Baldwin did tie the knot at the courthouse. However, Hailey posted (then deleted) a tweet saying, “I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet!”
Justin and Hailey have confirmed their marriage on social media.
After leaving fans guessing about their marital status for months, the couple finally confirmed they are married on social media. In November, Justin captioned an Instagram photo with Hailey, “My wife is awesome,” while she changed her username altogether to @haileybieber.
The religious ceremony was postponed.
The couple, though already legally married, also wanted to have a religious wedding ceremony with their families and friends. That event was supposed to take place in January 2019, but the couple is reportedly postponing it. There’s no word on the real date.
“They’re working with the schedules of all their friends and family to make sure they can be surrounded by the people they love,” a source told People. “There’s no real rush.”
Baldwin also previously teased to The Cut that the wedding will be in 2019.
It was rumored to take place in Canada.
TMZ also reports that Justin and Hailey’s looming nuptials may take place in the singer’s home country. When they were at the Marriage Bureau, they were reportedly overheard discussing leaving the country, sources told the site. However, the couple hasn’t confirmed where they’ll tie the knot.
An insider previously told Entertainment Tonight in July that the couple was considering getting hitched in Canada, the U.S., or possibly both.
The ceremony will be super small.
Weeks after the couple got engaged, a source told ET, “Justin and Hailey have been telling friends they want to have a smaller wedding, with close family and friends, nothing too over the top.”
But there could be a bigger “blowout” following the wedding.
“They’re going to have a big blowout, in front of God and everyone they love,” a “religious source” told People. It’s unclear when the follow-up bash may take place. People‘s insider says it’ll happen “soon,” but TMZ suggests it could be next year.
No, Hailey is not pregnant.
A source clarified to TMZ that the short-lived engagement doesn’t imply that a baby is on the way: “100 percent she’s not pregnant.”
Hailey has said she doesn’t have a wedding gown yet.
The model’s dress isn’t ready, but she has chosen a designer (who, obviously, remains secret), she told The Cut.
Her bridal party will be “small and familial.”
Baldwin also confirmed to The Cut that her older sister Alaia will be her bridesmaid, since she was hers last year. She also hopes Bieber’s 10-year-old sister, Jazmyn, can be the flower girl.
The model’s aunt, Kim Basinger, previously teased that both Alaia and Ireland Baldwin—her daughter with Alec Baldwin and Hailey’s cousin—would be “in the wedding.”
Hailey wants a woodsy venue.
“I think having it in the woods would be so beautiful,” Baldwin told The Cut of her ideal location. She added that she has a wedding planner looking for a spot on the West Coast, despite the speculation that she and Bieber may wed in Canada.
Wherever Hailey and Justin’s ceremony ends up taking place, expect a lot of lighting. “I just picture lights strung everywhere,” she said.
Hailey and Justin were engaged on July 7.
In case you need a refresher, Bieber proposed to Baldwin during a getaway in the Bahamas this summer. Fans instantly started speculating that they were engaged after a massive ring was spotted on Baldwin’s finger.
Two days later, Beiber confirmed the news with a lengthy, heartfelt post on Instagram. “You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else,” he wrote.
