Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber's Relationship Has Been "Meant to Be" for a While, per Cousin Ireland Baldwin

Since reports broke earlier this month claiming that Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber had gone ahead and tied the knot in secret—reports that Baldwin denied in a tweet that was deleted minutes later—nobody but the two of them has been entirely sure of their relationship status. Not even their nearest and dearest know exactly what's going on: In an interview with Entertainment Tonight over the weekend, Ireland Baldwin shared that, while she's unsure whether her cousin is now a married woman, she does know that Baldwin and Bieber are pretty much perfect for each other.

"I have no idea what their situation is," Ireland said. "I think they're just taking things slow. They're just kissing all over the world. They're just kissing and loving and having fun, and I think people take little details and get too caught up in them, and they're looking too hard. Just let them kiss!" (A good rule of thumb.) Among the recent stops on this international kissing tour: London. Last week, Bieber was spotted serenading Baldwin outside Buckingham Palace, and she in turn posted and deleted a photo of them getting cuddly inside a pod on the London Eye.

Ireland went on to explain how the model and musician's whirlwind relationship has been written in the stars for quite some time now. "It was meant to be a long time ago," Ireland said. "It was just a long time coming, and we're all like, 'Alright, thank God, let's move forward.' They're so in love and they really do a lot of good for each other, and that's the most important thing for me, that he makes her so happy." She added, "They just bring out the good in each other, they really do. I think they do a really good job of checking each other when one desperately needs to be checked and told, 'You're out of line.' I think they really, really do care about each other so much and care about what others and what their families think of them."

Ireland's tentative speculation about her cousin's relationship is markedly different from comments recently made by her father, Alec Baldwin, about his niece's maybe-wedding. "They went off and got married, and I don't know what the deal is!" he told Access at the Emmy Awards last week. Clearly, at this point, Biebwin's relationship status is anyone's guess.
