Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber are certainly making their way through that wedding planning checklist. After updating their relationship status from dating to engaged 10 days ago, the two have already secured their wedding party, at least according to family member Kim Basinger.
The aunt of the bride, 64, revealed several key members of the bridal party on Tuesday, July 17. “Oh, it’ll be fun,” the Oscar-winning actress, who was previously married to actor Alec Baldwin, told Us Weekly of the nuptials. (Alec is the uncle of Hailey and the brother of Stephen Baldwin.)
Basinger also revealed that her daughter, Ireland Baldwin, as well as her niece Alaia, are bridesmaids. “Alaia and Ireland, they’re in the wedding. So believe me, I just—it’s cool! I think it’s sweet,” she said. “It’s a very sweet thing. Happiness… We’re living in some really dire times right now.”
Hailey, in turn, served as the maid of honor in her sister Alaia’s upstate New York wedding in September 2017. Both Hailey and Ireland gave speeches at the wedding, which was held at the scenic Blue Hill at Stone Barns.
It’s also speculated that Hailey will ask longtime friend Kendall Jenner to be a member of the wedding party.
Along with the topic of bridesmaids and groomsmen, the Fifty Shades star also opened up about Bieber joining the family. “I’m very, very happy for Hailey. I think it’s a good thing,” she said. “I think Justin’s a cool guy. I don’t really know him at all, but Ireland does, you know? I think he’s come through a rough road. He’s a really cool kid. I pray for them. I hope they’re cool. I hope they’re happy! It’s wild! I think it’s wild!”
Bieber proposed to Baldwin with a mega oval-shape sparkler designed by Jack Solow of Solow & Co. “Justin had a big hand in it,” the jeweler told E! News last week. “He had certain design elements that he wanted and he had certain expectations and I think we delivered… I think he knew very well what Hailey wanted in a ring, but he wanted it very much to be about a very special diamond. He left it in my hands to try and select the most beautiful diamond for someone like Hailey.”
Baldwin and Bieber have been longtime friends with their relationship turning romantic from time to time. They only dated for about a month before the “Sorry” hitmaker popped the question in the Bahamas in early July.
“I had a sense that he was very, very ready for this decision,” Solow said at the time.
The couple has already reportedly sourced their wedding vision—something intimate and held in Bieber’s native Canada.
