Considering the rich tradition of opulent celebrity weddings, one would expect Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey Baldwin to have had a massive celebration. In fact, however, that’s not the case--since their courthouse wedding back in Sept. 2017, they’ve kept a low profile and are in no rush to have a large ceremony, instead dedicating their time to mental health.
The couple were married in secret this past fall, but according to People, they are waiting to have a larger ceremony with family and friends. According to a source, they are choosing to support Bieber’s mental health first: “Hailey keeps supporting him. They will still have a wedding when they feel they are ready. The most important thing for them is that Justin is mentally healthy.”
Bieber has been candid in the media about his struggles with mental health issues, and has sought treatment for depression since February, according to People. He has previously revealed on his Instagram that, “I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be.”
The source remarked that treatment has been helpful, saying, “He is much more focused on taking one day at a time,” and that he is doing “much better.” Baldwin’s presence, according to People, was a major factor in him seeking treatment and reaching his current state of health.
Although the Bieber/Baldwin wedding would probably be an extravaganza worth seeing, we’re glad that Bieber is taking the time to ensure he’s in the best mental state possible--and we can only hope that other celebrities will follow suit, if they need.
