Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin's reunion was sudden, as was their engagement, so it wouldn't necessarily shock anyone if their wedding was equally abrupt. People magazine is reporting that the pair are now legally married in the eyes of the law, after being spotted entering a New York City courthouse this morning. Many assumed that Bieber and Baldwin were there to pick up their wedding license, but the tabloid reports that they just went through with the whole thing.
“They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone,” a "religious source" told People.
“I can’t wait to marry you, baby,” 24-year-old Bieber reportedly told 21-year-old Baldwin, daughter of actor and conservative activist Stephen Baldwin.
TMZ, however, is still reporting that the Bieber-Baldwin wedding is expected to be next week.
It's possible that both sources are correct, as People adds that Baldwin and Bieber still plan to have a more traditional ceremony with their friends and family on hand and a religious figure overseeing the nuptials.
The pair briefly dated several years ago, but reports they had reunited only emerged in May. They quickly confirmed their rekindled romance with a string of highly photographed PDA sessions that took them from Miami to Brooklyn to Los Angeles to the Hamptons to, finally, the Bahamas, where they were engaged.
Baldwin recently told The Cut that she didn't think she was too young to get married, and imagined a wedding in the woods with lots of lights. She confirmed that her sister would serve as a bridesmaid, but didn't offer much else. A wedding next week means that many of Baldwin's model friends may not be able to attend, as it's the middle of Fashion Month.
Update: Turns out that perhaps TMZ won this round, because Baldwin herself has now taken to Twitter to clarify that she's not actually married. Yet, anyway.
"I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet!" she wrote.
