Hailey Baldwin took yet another step into marriage with Justin Bieber by changing her name on Instagram to “Hailey Rhode Bieber.”

The update sent the model’s 15.5 million followers into a flurry of comments.

Baldwin previously denied she and Bieber had secretly married in September, just two months after the “Baby” hitmaker had proposed during a getaway in the Bahamas. Bieber and Baldwin married during a spur-of-the-moment trip to the courthouse in Manhattan.

It seemed that Baldwin has finally publicly wanted to share her marital status with the model also stepping out Thursday for an appearance at the Levi’s store in Times Square in New York City, wearing a denim jacket that read “Bieber”

“They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone,” a source previously told People, after the couple married in September.

However, they are still planning a formal wedding ceremony. It will likely be in Bieber’s native Canada. “I just picture lights strung everywhere,” she told The Cut this summer of her future nuptials. “I think having it in the woods would be so beautiful.”
