It looks like it’s officially official. After they reportedly confirmed their marriage to a fan in October, Hailey Baldwin has changed her name to “Hailey Bieber” on Instagram, informing the world that she and Justin Bieber are, in fact, legally bound. Not only did Hailey change her Instagram handle to @HaileyBieber, but she also updated her Instagram profile to read, “Hailey Rhode Bieber, Hailey Rhode — IMG Models Worldwide.”
According to TMZ, Bieber himself orchestrated the name change (though we can only assume with his wife’s blessing). The “Company” singer reportedly reached out to Instagram on Friday, November 16th, to secure the handle @HaileyBieber, which was most likely a fan account at the time. Back in October, TMZ reported that Hailey was gearing up to take her husband’s last name by filing a trademark for the name Hailey Bieber. She supposedly submitted the application in order to use the name on future clothing and merchandise branding. At that point, she and Bieber appeared to have already tied the knot during a New York City courthouse wedding in September.
And it seems both celebs are fully embracing married life. Justin posted a photo of himself and Hailey on Instagram on November 16th, captioning it, “My wife is awesome.”
This is wedded bliss at its finest.
Even though they’re already married in the eyes of the law, the Biebers are supposedly planning a wedding for friends and family in 2019. We expect it to be lavish and filled with love.
