It's already old news that Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin were spotted exiting the "Marriage Bureau" department of a New York courthouse on Thursday, but they're not married yet! Rumors were swirling on Thursday as soon as the photos were released and many guessed that the pair eloped at the courthouse then and there, but Baldwin was quick to set the record straight.
"I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I'm not married yet!" Baldwin tweeted to clear up the gossip.
Reportedly, Beiber told a court official, "Thanks for keeping it on the DL,"' on Thursday according to TMZ sources.
So much for that, but now the race is on! Bieber and Baldwin now have, according to New York State requirements, sixty days to tie the knot before their marriage license expires. As you can imagine, glamorous plans are already well underway. The wedding will take place at Bieber's $5-million mansion in his hometown in Ontario, Canada.
Who can we expect to be on the star-studded guest list? On the groom's side, surely there will be his father, Jeremy Bieber, and mother, Pattie Mallette. His longtime manager, Scooter Braun, and career mentor, Usher will be there as well as his many friends in the business such as DJ Khalid and DJ Snake.
Showing support for the bride will be her parents, Stephen and Kennya Baldwin and model pals, Gigi and Bella Hadid, and Kendall Jenner. Super famous uncle Alec Baldwin, his wife, Hilaria, and daughter, Ireland, as well as less-famous uncle Billy Baldwin and his wife Chyna, will be in attendance according to Daily Mail.
Bieber's Ontario mansion is a somewhat recent purchase and will make the perfect location for a private wedding ceremony, boasting four bedrooms, a huge airy kitchen and dining area along with a private equestrian facility with stables and a 5/8 mile race track.
"Justin wants to make his full-time home in Canada," a source told Us Weekly. "He needs to get out of the L.A., NYC scene. He's trying to climatize what a normal life should look like. He feels most at peace at home."
The mansion is ideal for entertaining the future Mr. and Mrs. Bieber's bevy of celeb guests with its open floor plan and wide, open spaces at every turn. There will be plenty of room for a rehearsal dinner inside and a multitude of choices for a gorgeous outdoor ceremony with endless opportunities for stunning photos.
Some might classify this as a whirlwind romance, but Bieber and Baldwin are hardly new lovebirds. The couple first met back in 2009 at his "Never Say Never" concert where Baldwin was accompanied by her father, Stephen. The two made it official in 2015 and dated on and off through 2016, recently reconnecting this past summer. Soon after July 4, 2018, Bieber and Baldwin were officially engaged. Just days ago on Sept. 10, 2018, Bieber was spotted chatting with Stephen Baldwin, the father of the future bride and many speculate that the two were discussing wedding plans.
After all of these years, it looks like Bieber has finally found his "baby." Congrats to the happy couple!
