Well, it’s official, folks.
Justin Bieber is a married man.
Multiple sources have confirmed to People magazine that Bieber and Hailey Baldwin tied the knot in a small private ceremony in New York City on Thursday.
The couple was spotted applying for a marriage license in Manhattan earlier that day, but that didn’t necessarily mean it was imminent.
It was widely assumed that these blissful young lovebirds were still in the early stages of wedding preparations.
So much for that.
(UPDATE: This is what Baldwin has said about the marriage.)
Instead, Bieber and Baldwin executed a secretive ceremony every bit as surprising as the rest of their whirlwind romance.
Justin and Hailey got engaged back in July, but fans remained skeptical that they would ever take the plunge together.
“They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone,” an insider tells People.
No word yet on whether or not Justin stuck with his recent "Pablo Escobar associate hiding out in West Virginia" look for the ceremony.
In any case, it seems Bieber and Baldwin’s wedding celebration has just begun, so more details should be forthcoming soon.
A second insider – identified only as "a religious source" tells People that Mr. and Mrs. Bieber are planning a second ceremony, this one featuring a guest list of hundreds.
“They’re going to have a big blowout, in front of God and everyone they love,” says the tipster.
TMZ reports that Justin and Hailey were "extremely emotional" while obtaining their marriage license at an NYC courthouse.
“I can’t wait to marry you, baby," Bieber reportedly told Baldwin at one point.
One onlooker claims Justin was heard to remark, “Thanks for keeping it on the DL" while speaking with a court official.
Though Justin’s loyal fan base was initially split on the news of his engagement, the response to his marriage has been overwhelmingly favorable thus far.
Tens of thousands of Bieliebers have taken to social media to congratulate the couple since the news broke.
While some remain chagrined that Justin is off the market, others see marriage as another step in the maturation of the once-troubled pop icon.
The 24-year-old pop star does appear to have been tamed, as it were, by the love of this beautiful young woman.
And for that, we thank her.
Thus far, neither party has spoken publicly about their low-key wedding, but insiders say both man (we use the term loosely) and wife are ecstatic.
All kidding aside, The Hollywood Gossip ends its sincerest congrats to both Justin and Hailey on this joyous occasion.
And we’re not just saying that because we desperately want to be invited to the star-studded reception. Which we do.
We’ll wait for the text.
