Alec Baldwin says his niece Hailey Baldwin has tied the knot with pop superstar Justin Bieber.
The 60-year-old star, speaking with Access during entrances at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles Monday, said that the model and singer have exchanged vows.
‘They just went off and got married and I don’t know what the deal is,’ Alec said about three days after Hailey, 21, and Justin, 24, were spotted at the Marriage Bureau at a courthouse in New York City last Thursday.

Just married? Alec Baldwin says his niece Hailey Baldwin has tied the knot with pop superstar Justin Bieber, despite Hailey’s denial they wed at a New York courthouse last week
Alec’s comments come after Hailey took to Instagram on Friday to deny she and Justin had married.
The model wrote: ‘I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet!’
An insider told People last week of Hailey and Justin’s marriage: ‘They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone,’ noting that future festivities are planned to celebrate the union.
‘They’re going to have a big blowout, in front of God and everyone they love.’

It is now rumoured that the couple, who started dating in June, will have a big ceremony in Canada next week.
Despite Hailey’s denial that they are already wed, People claims via sources connected to the couple, that it’s simply the case that the Tommy Hilfiger model doesn’t consider herself officially married yet.
A source said Hailey ‘feels a civil ceremony and their ‘real’ wedding are two separate things.’

TMZ claims they will throw their wedding bash at the $5m mansion in Ontario, Canada he purchased this summer. It has four-bedrooms featuring a private equestrian facility with stables and a 5/8 mile race track.
A source added to the site that last month they had pushed their wedding to 2019 but they later had a ‘change of heart’ and want to marry in mid September.
TMZ also said Justin was ’emotional’ when he got his marriage license.

The Sorry singer was overheard saying in the court house through tears, ‘I can’t wait to marry you, baby.’
It was added by a source: ‘Justin said to a court official, “Thanks for keeping it on the DL.”‘
According to New York State requirements a marriage license ‘is valid for 60 calendar days, beginning the day after it is issued.’

Meanwhile, the What Do You Mean artist has reportedly applied for dual citizenship in the U.S and Canada ahead of his wedding.
Academy Award nominee Alec, who was flanked by his stunning wife Hilaria at the award show, said that they ‘text Hailey every now and then,’ and ‘met [Bieber] one time.’
Baldwin, who appeared onstage at the show during a Betty White tribute, had words of relationship advice for Bieber in his purported new marriage with Hailey.
‘Keep working … don’t stop working,’ he said. ‘But when you get married, you know I mean I think it works best if you can really be together.’
He explained how he and wife work to make sure they’re spending plenty of time with one another.
‘You hook your schedules up where you can really be with each other cause we make all of our decisions around staying home,’ he said.
‘There’s jobs that I could do, and there’s things that she could do, that we don’t do because it means going away for five weeks. We don’t do that.’
Alec, who won an Emmy last fall for his Saturday Night Live impression of President Donald Trump, said he wasn’t going to assume a protective role over Hailey toward Bieber, in their new nuptials.
‘That’s not my job: She has a dad and I’m sure he has a few paragraphs about that himself, so I’m not worried,’ he said.

Justin and Hailey – who got engaged on July 7 – previously dated off/on in 2015 and 2016, but they’ve been inseparable ever since June.
Eyebrows raised at the Hillsong Church duo (who first met in 2009) considering Justin only split from his on/off girlfriend since 2010, pop diva Selena Gomez, six months ago.
Now that the two are reportedly married, they will likely settle down.
‘Justin wants to make his full-time home in Canada,’ a source told Us Weekly on Wednesday.
‘He needs to get out of the L.A., NYC scene. He’s trying to climatize what a normal life should look like. He feels most at peace at home.’
