"I'm not married yet!" Hailey Baldwin responds to wedding rumors
After being spotted entering the courthouse which gives out marriage licenses, the young couple was reportedly confirmed to have tied the knot in secret ceremony.
When in love, there is no time to waste. However, it's not wise rushing in either! After wild rumors of Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin went crazily viral, the latter broke her silence and dished out a straightforward response. "I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet!" Hailey tweeted a few hours ago.
The rumors of her wedding plunged into action after several media outlets reported that the couple was spotted at New York City courthouse's marriage bureau, a few days ago. Justin, 24, and Hailey, 21, had been engaged for two months now.
I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet!— Hailey Baldwin (@haileybaldwin) September 14, 2018
According to an unnamed "religious" source who spoke to People, it was earlier confirmed that the couple had secretly tied the knot at the courthouse but will soon arrange for a gala celebration with family and friends. A source close to the couple had said that it was more like a whim since the two went ahead with the decision without asking anyone else, the couple "are going to have a big blowout, in front of God and everyone they love."
However, it seems like speculations went around too fast.
TMZ had earlier spotted the couple walking a courthouse where marriage licenses were issued. Since the 24-year-old pop star had already decided upon marrying the niece of actor Alec Baldwin, it doesn't come as a surprise that they would rush into something hastily.
Hailey, herself, had earlier described all of her wedding plans to The Cut, where she had stated, "I think having it in the woods would be so beautiful. My sister will be my bridesmaid. I was hers last year. And maybe Justin's little sister as a flower girl. Is 10 too old?"
The 21-year-old model had also mentioned that while marrying in the early 20's is often considered too early by most people, it is not a very unconventional thing in the Baldwin family. "My sister was 24 when she got married, and my parents also got married when they were young, too. I see no reason to wait. When you know it’s right, it’s right.”
It is being speculated that the two would soon get married because once a marriage license application is submitted to the court it remains valid for up to 60 days, within which a marriage ceremony is required to take place for the couple to be eligible enough for the marriage certificate. Unless a couple obtains a judicial waiver, it is required to wait for at least 24 hours before a ceremony can be performed.
Bieber and Hailey got engaged in the Bahamas in July.
