Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin‘s marriage has been one of the worst-kept secrets in the world for some time now – reports of their low-key wedding were widely circulated at the time, and she even went and changed her name to Hailey Bieber on Instagram.

Well, folks, the moment has finally arrived – we have official confirmation that there is indeed one less lonely girl in the world, after the Biebs himself took to the social network and confirmed that he is currently spending his first Thanksgiving as a married man.

“Happy late Thanksgiving to everyone,” the 24-year-old wrote, alongside a bucolic photo of a snowy late-Autumn treescape. “First Thanksgiving as a married man, first time hosting Thanksgiving. First time both sides of the family [have] come together.”

Based on what I know about this particular holiday – 100% of which comes from TV shows and my friends’ Facebook posts – the pair presumably spent the better part of the week eating carbohydrate-rich foods, tracing turkeys with their hands and arguing about politics with their families.

“Relationships are hard and love isn’t always easy but thank you Jesus for showing me how!” he continued. “Every day is a learning process, trying to be more like him, patient, kind, selfless, boy I got a long way! But [God’s] grace is sufficient!”

Speaking of which, last week, Justin Bieber finally settled a lawsuit with a former neighbour whose house he egged, and who accused him and his security team of making violent threats and using anti-Semetic slurs when they lived next door to one-another in Calabasas.
