Justin Bieber recently shared with the world one of his personal goals: to be married with kids by 25. That means in the next 8 or so years, the Biebs wants to settle down. Selena Gomez, you hear that? No? Well, we found the quote for you!
The Biebs spoke to Women’s Wear Daily about it saying, “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. 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.”
Of course, a lot of pop stars (especially ones who were pretty young when they got their start) marry kind of young. By the time they’re 25, they’ve already lived a lot of life, so settling down probably feels like the next right move. And if Bieber feels like he’s going to be the only pop star on the block who married by his mid-twenties, well we’ve found some others who also settled down early.
Britney Spears married Kevin Federline at 22, a few months shy of her 23rd birthday. By the time she was 24, she was already a mom to her two sons. Of course, by the time she was 25 she was also a divorcee.

They surprised everyone when they announced their split earlier this year.
