Ireland Baldwin dished on why her cousin Hailey and Justin Bieber are perfect together
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin apparently don’t live by the whole “opposites attract” theory. According to Baldwin’s cousin Ireland Baldwin, they’re two peas in a pod. “They’re perfect for each other because they’re like the same person,” Ireland told PEOPLE while attending the opening of On The Record at Park MGM in Las Vegas on Saturday, January 19th. “They’re both really sweet. They complement each other. They’re both very loving of each other.” The young couple is also experiencing life at the same speed.
Although Bieber and Hailey are already legally married—having secretly exchanged vows at a civil courthouse ceremony in September 2018—they are planning to have a bigger celebration that includes a religious ceremony and reception, a source told PEOPLE.
“They’ve been figuring out the perfect time to do it, and they both feel like the sooner, the better,” an insider close to Bieber said earlier this month. “They’re still figuring it out.”
As for the wedding date? Ireland—whose dad Alec Baldwin is the brother of Hailey’s dad Stephen Baldwin—told PEOPLE she’s in the dark. “We’re happy. We’re going to the wedding,” she said. “We don’t know when it is or where, but we’re happy for them.”
The once on-and-off couple—who previously dated before a messy 2016 breakup—rekindled their relationship over the summer, before Bieber proposed to Baldwin in the Bahamas in July 2018. Just two months after his proposal, the pair quietly tied the knot on September 13th of last year in a New York City civil service. At the time, an insider told PEOPLE, “They’re going to have a big blowout, in front of God and everyone they love.”
