Lock up your daughters, moms and dad: Justin Bieber is looking to become a father! The Bieb may not have graduated from high school yet, or be old enough to legally drink, but he already has a timeline for his next personal milestone on the brain, jonesing for late nights of bottle feedings and diaper changes. Bieber explained his plans for the future during Thursday’s Fashions Night Out event in New York. “Well, by 25 or 26, I want to see myself, like, married or start looking for a family. I want to be a young dad,” he told Women’s Wear Daily, when asked where he sees himself in five years. The interview also noted that Bieber was “visibly counting” before he answered the question, which means at 17-years-old, he might want to reconsider the college thing and focus on his schooling first.
Of course by getting a much earlier jump on his professional career than the rest of us, starting a family on the younger side isn’t entirely abnormal. “I want to be able to have done what I wanted to do—to be successful, to do a movie or whatever. But if the time is right, I definitely want to be married by 25,” he explained, backtracking slightly as if he could sense the world beginning to design Bieber and Selena Gomez china patterns—or worse. But even though he confirmed that the “amazing” Gomez is in fact his girlfriend, don’t start picking out Crate and Barrel items for two just yet. “One thing—I’m not looking to get married now,” he said. Eh, we’ll see about that. The allure of starring in a televised wedding special that captivates the world is pretty hard to resist.
