People Are Convinced That Justin And Hailey Got Married

I don't mean to sound like a boring old person, but back in my day, when people got married, you'd know about it. There would be a marriage announcement or wedding photos or something. With Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin, we've had to go full-on Blue's Clues to figure out their marital status.

Since the couple first got engaged in July, we've already been wrong once about the couple getting married.

But now, we've got the best reason yet to think that they're actually married, and it comes right from the source.

Over on Hailey's Instagram page, the model didn't post about her status change, but eagle-eyed fans noticed a change to her profile.

Both Hailey's Instagram handle and her name have been updated, suggesting that she's now taken on Justin Bieber's last name.

Justin also made a post that seemed to confirm the news.

The two posts made so soon after each other seem to suggest that we might actually be dealing with a marriage here!

But, as I said, this isn't the first time we've thought the couple was married, when they actually weren't...or were they?

Back in September, People reported that the couple actually got married back in September, after the pair were spotted at a New York City courthouse that issues marriage licenses.

Shortly after the story circulated, Hailey jumped onto Twitter to deny the rumors.

The tweet (now deleted), made it abundantly clear that Hailey didn't want anyone thinking she was already married.

In fact, the couple seemed reluctant to even announce their engagement in the first place.

When Bieber confirmed engagement rumors on July 9, he started by saying, "Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast," making it clear that the information got out before he intended it to.

The post went onto pledge his love to Hailey.

His caption made the commitment to "promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make."

Now, it seems, the couple has either actually gotten married, or maybe is admitting to already being married.

While it's not the strongest evidence, Hailey Baldwin Bieber attended the Levi's Times Square Store Opening on the same day as the posts came out. The jacket she wore had her new surname — BIEBER — embroidered across the back.

Another theory is that they actually did get married back in September, but are now just starting to talk about it.

Instagram | @justinbieber

People is sticking to their original scoop on the subject.

Load Comments

So what is actually going on here?

Twitter | @wtvrkaylee, Twitter

Are they married? Are they not? Have they been married this whole time? Are they just messing with us?

Load Comments

They originally reported that a civil ceremony happened a few months ago, but that it wasn't a "big deal" to the couple.

Instagram | @justinbieber

Instead, their source says that the couple had been planning to have a second, traditional, religious wedding in order to actually celebrate with friends and family.

Some people were ready to dismiss the news, saying it's easy to change your username.

I realize she's joking, but it's true. I could make my Insta handle "@dylanminaj" but that doesn't mean that Nicki's returning my calls.

When asked how wild a Baldwin wedding would get, Alec said, "Well, they went off and got married."

Access

He went on to clarify that he didn't know "what the deal is" about the situation, since he and Hailey text sometimes, but he seemed out of the loop.

Load Comments

To try to make sense of the different stories, People's source said the couple didn't see the civil ceremony as a "wedding."

Instagram | @justinbieber

Their source said Hailey "feels a civil ceremony and their 'real' wedding are two separate things."

Load Comments

Alec Baldwin ended up confirming the rumors, despite what Hailey had said on Twitter.

Just a few days after the story initially broke, Alec spoke to Access on the Emmy red carpet.

Load Comments

If that's the case, does that mean that they managed to pull off a wedding without anyone else noticing?

Instagram | @haileybieber

Aside from the two Instagram posts, there isn't a whole lot to go on.

Load Comments

Scoping the rest of the couple's social isn't exactly giving us much to go on.

Instagram | @haileybieber, Instagram

Hailey's first Insta post since the non-announcement got some thirsty comments from her "husband," but nothing clarifying.

Load Comments

On Justin's Instagram, he hasn't posted anything about Hailey since the wife comment either.

Clearly, these two don't care about our fascination with their love life.

Load Comments

Over on Twitter, Justin wasn't exactly offering up a lot of insights either.

Digging around over there, we did learn that Bieber likes Ariana Grande's "thank u, next," but that's not what we came for.

Load Comments

And Hailey's Twitter has been a wasteland since September, so no clues are hanging around over there.

Twitter | @haileybaldwin

We did learn that Hailey doesn't care enough about her Twitter to update her name over there, but, again, that doesn't really help anything.

Load Comments

Even Hailey's dad Stephen Baldwin, who's certainly not shy on Twitter, hasn't had anything to say about the subject.

Stephen Baldwin has spoken positively in the past about the relationship, and seems to endorse it.

Load Comments

While some critics think that Justin (24) and Hailey (21) are too young to get married, he supports the relationship.

Stephen Baldwin told DailyMailTV that the two have been friends for 10 years and certainly know each other better than their months-long engagement would suggest.

Load Comments

Hailey's dad seems genuinely convinced that Justin is up for the job.

Stephen referred to Bieber's sometimes spotty past and said that the singer has grown up a lot, and described himself as "very impressed with him already, actually, for how he's caring for my daughter."

Load Comments

So it may be a while (or maybe never) before we get all the details of when, how, or even if the Biebers actually got married.

For now, the two are obviously into each other, and we'll just have to wait and see exactly what that looks like.
