It seems that a congratulations will soon be in order for Hollywood power couple Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel.
It has been reported that Biel and her husband of a little over two years are expecting their first child.
The rumor began when In Style editor-in-chief, Ariel Foxman sent his wishes on Instagram with the caption, “Congrats @jessicabiel on your impending motherhood. Looking forward to the red carpet maternity style pix to come #tbt.”
The post has since been deleted, but the pregnancy talk is still in the air.
As we await the official baby news- and growing bump- let’s celebrate the couple’s love story.
1. He Actually Called Her on the Phone After They Met
During a press conference, Timberlake told reporters how their relationship started:
I did it the old fashioned way — by telephone. That’s something I learned from both my stepdad and my grandfather — that there is a thing called chivalry and it doesn’t have to die with the birth of the internet. The way I see it, if you’re asking a girl out on a date, it’s only right to do it in a way that she can hear your voice. I had to be pretty persistent in order to get her to say yes. But I have a fair amount of tenacity and if I want something I stick to it. And in the end she agreed.
2. He Wrote ‘Mirrors’ About Her
On his website, he posted an audio clip that said, “”Mirrors” is a love song to someone that you feel like is, you know, sort of your other half.”
He continued, “One of the most valuable things in a relationship is being able to constantly change and be individual, but look to the other side to the person that you’re with and and know that they’re changing as well individually, but somehow you two can mirror each other and be the other half of that world that you both create.”
The lyrics of the love ballad seem to hint at the split the brief couple faced in March of 2011 when they ended things after four years together.
And I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin’ back into you once I figured it out
You were right here all along
Months after their split, in a June 2011 interview with Vanity Fair, he said:
“She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life. In my 30 years, she is the most special person, O.K.? … I don’t want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me—for instance, her.”
3. JT Serenaded Her Down the Aisle
They married in 2012 in Borgo Egnazia resort in southern Italy.
While Biel walked down the aisle, her adoring fiance sang and played the guitar.
“It was an original piece I wrote specifically for the evening and for her,” he told People.
In the interview with Ellen DeGeneres, above, when the host asked what it’s like being married he said, “It’s nice to marry your best friend. It suits me.”
He also said he sometimes gets a glimpse of her when she isn’t looking and thinks to himself, “If you never make a good decision, if you only make bad decisions for the rest of your life, you made one really good decision.”
4. There Are Cheating Rumors
While Justin was on his 20/20 tour for nine months without his wife, Star magazine reported that he got frisky with a backup dancer, Zenya Bashford.
In a recent interview with In Style, Biel admitted that the couple doesn’t always see one another because of their schedules. “Sometimes you are both working and it just happens. But from here on out, I want to participate in making smart choices for the relationship.”
While they were dating, in 2010, Us reported that Timberlake slept with actress Olivia Munn.
5. Jess Likes To Say ‘Husband’
Watch Biel’s interview on The Ellen Show, where she talks about her favorite part about being married, which is using the word husband.
The actress does admit that it’s hard to be married to one of the world’s biggest pop stars.
In an interview with the Daily Beast, Biel said:
You’re right. It’s not easy. You know what it’s like when you’re even dating someone from a few states away, and it’s a really big challenge. Your relationship just has to be a priority, you have to make sacrifices for it, and you have to make time to see each other no matter what. You have to pick whatever number of days as your cut-off point, and no matter what, one person has to make the journey to see the other person if one of you is far away. It has to be important enough to you to make the effort, because it is a lot of effort.
