Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin were spotted at a marriage license courthouse in New York City on Thursday, according to reports from TMZ and People. TMZ published a photo that allegedly shows the couple entering the Marriage Bureau together. The image was taken from behind, so it's unclear whether the couple in the shot is actually Bieber and Baldwin. The pair has not publicly addressed the visit.
The courthouse appearance doesn't necessarily imply that Bieber and Baldwin secretly tied the knot. In fact, one of Bieber's friends told People that the wedding is still being planned, despite the Marriage Bureau cameo.
However, if Justin and Hailey visited the courthouse to apply for a marriage license, that could mean their wedding is imminent, even though sources previously told TMZ that the couple was planning to get married next year.
One insider told TMZ that Bieber was emotional during today's courthouse trip. He was reportedly crying at one point and told Baldwin, "I can't wait to marry you, baby."
Another source overheard him tell a court official, "Thanks for keeping it on the DL." A third source said the couple was discussing leaving the country.
People reported last month that the Justin and Hailey don't want a long engagement and are already planning their nuptials. The lovebirds want a "smaller" wedding with just their family and friends, Entertainment Tonight reported, so don't be surprised if they somehow pull off a super-private ceremony.
Bieber and Baldwin, who have been on-and-off since 2016, got engaged in early July in the Bahamas. Rumors spread quickly after Baldwin was spotted with a massive ring on her finger. The singer confirmed the news on Instagram days later.
"You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else," he wrote in a lengthy post.
