After reports Friday that Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin got married in a Manhattan courthouse Thursday after a two-month engagement, the model is saying she's not married -- "yet."

"I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet!" Baldwin tweeted Friday afternoon, shortly after reports by People, Us Weekly and other outlets.

Bieber, the 24-year-old music superstar climbing the charts with his latest hit "No Brainer," and Baldwin, the 21-year-old model and host of “Drop the Mic,” got engaged in the Bahamas in July. Eyewitnesses to the couple’s courthouse visit told TMZ that Bieber was crying and told Baldwin, “I can't wait to marry you, baby.”

People magazine quoted an unnamed source close to the couple Friday who said of the reported marriage, “They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone.”

Several reports say the couple will have an elaborate wedding in California next year. A conflicting report by TMZ says a "super small ceremony" could happen as early as next week.

According to The Cut, Baldwin and Bieber’s marriage has the blessing of her parents — Massapequa native Stephen Baldwin, the “Usual Suspects” actor, and Kennya Deodato Baldwin.

“I said to them, ‘You’d stop me if you didn’t think this was the right decision, right?' And they didn’t,” she told The Cut Thursday. “I think they love him more than me!”

Baldwin added that getting married young isn’t unusual in her family.

“My sister was 24 when she got married, and my parents also got married when they were young, too,” Hailey Baldwin said. “I see no reason to wait. When you know it’s right, it’s right.”
