Her lips are sealed! Ireland Baldwin isn’t in the loop with what’s going on with her cousin Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber following their courthouse wedding earlier this month — or she’s very good at keeping secrets.
“I have no idea what their situation is,” the 22-year-old model told Entertainment Tonight while attending the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas before getting slightly tongue-tied. “I think they’re just taking things slow.”
Ireland added of the couple’s recent PDA in New York, London and Italy: “They’re just kissing all over the world. They’re just kissing and loving and having fun, and I think people take little details and get too caught up in them, and they’re looking too hard. Just let them kiss!”
As for the 24-year-old singer and the 21-year-old Drop the Mic cohost making things official with an engagement in July, Ireland gushed: “It was meant to be a long time ago, it was just a long time coming. They’re so in love. They really do a lot of good for each other. And that’s the most important thing for me, that he makes her so happy.” She later concluded that the pair is a very “respectable couple.”
Us Weekly confirmed that Bieber and his love tied the knot in a New York City courthouse on September 13. They’ve since been spotted together all over the place, including back-to-back outings in London where the “Sorry” singer serenaded his wife in front of Buckingham Palace.
Despite Ireland denying to ET that she has yet to be asked to be a bridesmaid in a potential bigger wedding, her mom, Kim Basinger, opened up to Us in July where she dished on the duo’s wedding party.
“Oh, it’ll be fun,” Basinger told Us. “[Hailey’s sister] Alaia [Baldwin] and [cousin] Ireland, they’re in the wedding. So believe me, I just — it’s cool! I think it’s sweet. It’s a very sweet thing. Happiness … We’re living in some really dire times right now.”
