After being engaged for only two months, a young and beautiful celebrity couple stunned family and friends by running off and getting married, ignoring advice from everyone!
On Thursday, September 13th, reports were flooding the internet that Singing superstar Justin Bieber and new fiancée Haily Baldwin had gone to a New York City courthouse to obtain a marriage license. At first glance, it appeared that the couple was merely planning ahead in preparation for a wedding in the near future.
People were speculating that the nuptials would likely occur within the next week or two, as marriage licenses in New York are valid for 60 days.
But, nope! That’s not at all what the giddy duo had in mind. They apparently decided that they wanted to do it all in one fell swoop!
“The singer, 24, and the model, 21, were married Thursday in New York City, PEOPLE confirms. “They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone,” a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE.
“Bieber and Baldwin were seen walking into a courthouse on Thursday where marriage licenses are issued, according to a photo obtained by TMZ.”
TMZ also reports that “Several eyewitnesses say the two were inside the Marriage Bureau in NYC and Justin was emotional. The eyewitnesses say he was crying and at one point said to his fiancee, ‘“I can't wait to marry you, baby.’”
It’s hard to believe that a celebrity couple would forego a lavish wedding ceremony in favor of a simple civil one. And many fans are disappointed that they are being robbed of fabulous wedding pics. But, never fear…All is not lost…
“A religious source spoke to the family and confirmed to PEOPLE that they were legally married at the courthouse, but are going to have a religious ceremony and celebration with family and friends soon. “They’re going to have a big blowout, in front of God and everyone they love.”
So, stay tuned for those wedding pics…they’re sure to be amazing!!
