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.
Celebrity Couples Before They Were Couples, From Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin to J.Lo and A-Rod
Yes, even before they were engaged, Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber have had remarkably similar hair. The pair has, after all, as they’ve repeatedly stated, been longtime friends, as evidenced here in this photo of them with Hailey’s dad, Stephen Baldwin, on the red carpet of the Times Square premiere of Bieber’s 3D film Never Say Never in 2011.
At the time of this meeting Lopez was with Marc Anthony, but it’s only fitting given that more than a decade later, J.Lo would move on from her then-husband to the much more fittingly named A-Rod, both seen here at a Yankees game in 2005. Their relationship started off with a bang late last year, when they had to evacuate the restaurant during their first date.
Feast your eyes upon Kim Kardashian with bangs—as well as her sister Kourtney and, of course, Kanye West, at a get-together all the way back in 2008. The pair looks a world away from the Kimye they are today—and even the Kimye they were when they first began, seeing as early on, Kanye transformed Kim’s grin into tears by throwing away 250 pairs of her bangs-era shoes.
Back in 1991, there was no Victoria Beckham. Instead, there was a Victoria Adams, aka Posh Spice, who hung out with David Beckham and Elton John on red carpets, before marrying the soccer star later that decade, in 1999.
Long before they married in 2015, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher were red carpet pals and costars on That ’70s Show, beginning when Kutcher was 20 and Kunis was just 14.
Pete and Ariana’s union is a bit less surprising when you consider that back in 2002, the power couple-to-be Jay-Z and Beyoncé Knowles also stood side by side on SNL‘s stage. (Technically, they began dating a bit earlier, when Beyoncé was 19, but they had a phone-only relationship for the first year and a half.)
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are perhaps one of the only couples who can say their relationship began backstage at the VH1 Awards, which is exactly where they first met in 2004. Making it official, though, took a bit of waiting: They didn’t marry until 2010, after the California Supreme Court ruled that the ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional (and after de Rossi had split up with the director Francesca Gregorini, whom she’d been dating when she and DeGeneres first met.)
The Olsen twins may be the first to catch your eye, but this photo primarily documents the early, 2005-era spark between Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem, who’d go on to marry in 2010.
In 2007, Salma Hayek announced that she was both pregnant and engaged to the French billionaire and Kering CEO François-Henri Pinault. They wed on Valentine’s Day in 2009—and again that April, this time in Venice—and Hayek hasn’t stopped making Fashion Week front row appearances since.
Ryan Reynolds was still married to Scarlett Johansson when he and his Green Lantern costar Blake Lively appeared at Comic-Con in 2010. Two years later, a then-divorced Reynolds in turn made things official with Lively, who, in addition to giving birth to two children, has made a point to troll him ever since.
Back when she was still making a name for herself as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, in 1997, Sarah Michelle Gellar starred in first-ever major movie: I Know What You Did Last Summer—and just so happened to meet Freddie Prinze Jr., her then-costar who, in 2002, would go on to become her husband.
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, one of this year’s most surprising couples, came to be after they met at the 2017 Met Gala, which saw Ralph Lauren, whose designs they each wore, pair them up. Fast forward to just over a year later, and suddenly they’ve become attached at the hip. They’ve wasted no time with their relationship, which they struck up less than two months ago; both Jonas and Chopra has already met the other’s family.
