On Monday, the couple stopped by the Stratford Perth Museum in Bieber's hometown of Ontario, Canada—where they have reportedly been hanging out and planning their formal wedding ceremony—and Baldwin took the opportunity to publicize her feelings for Bieber for all the world (or at least, all of the museum's patrons) to see. "I [heart] you forever," the model wrote on a chalkboard on the wall.
The chalkboard moment wasn't the only public declaration of their partnership the pair made during their visit to the museum: The Biebs was also reportedly overheard referring to Baldwin as his "wife."
"Justin very graciously introduced Hailey as his wife. Perhaps just a term of endearment? We loved their visit," the Stratford Perth Museum commented on a post to their Instagram account, Elle reports.
While the current status of Bieber and Baldwin's relationship is admittedly confusing (it's been TBD on whether or not their visit to the courthouse last month was an actual wedding), TMZ reported on Tuesday that they did get legally married on September 13.
According to the tabloid, both Baldwin and Bieber reached out to their lawyers that day to get a prenup, but even though it wasn't possible to get the agreement turned around so quickly, they apparently went ahead with the marriage without one. There is, of course, the option of signing a postnup, but a so-called source told TMZ that Bieber—who is worth $250 million—is so in love with Baldwin that he didn't really see the need for an agreement.
Regardless of whether the two are currently married in the eyes of the law or not, it's likely that they'll still have a formal religious ceremony to celebrate their union. “I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet!" Baldwin tweeted last month after rumors started swirling that the wedding had already taken place. Sources close to the couple provided some clarity on what Baldwin may have meant, explaining that she “feels a civil ceremony and their ‘real’ wedding are two separate things,” and another noting that a religious ceremony would likely happen in the near future.
“What happened at the courthouse is a courthouse thing—a legal thing. But marriage is two people making a vow before God and the people they love.”
