Pregnancy rumors no more! After weeks of bump-watch and speculation, Us Weekly has confirmed that Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, her husband of just over two years, are expecting their first child!
Just this morning Us Weekly reported that Biel, 32, and Timberlake, 33, are excited about finally starting their family. "Right now they are just enjoying the news for themselves," a source tells the magazine. "They just want a happy baby."
But Hollywood has been buzzing with rumors about their baby news for weeks, coming to a precipice when InStyle's editor-in-chief Ariel Foxman shared a #tbt of the star, writing, "Congrats @jessicabiel on your impending motherhood. Looking forward to the red carpet maternity style pix to come #tbt." The photo was quickly removed, and all traces of his congratulatory message were taken down.
While neither Biel nor Timberlake has officially announced the pregnancy, there's been plenty of indication that family has been on both of their minds. Just last month Timberlake shared a sweet photo of Biel on his Instagram account, something he has never done before. The very rare inside-look at their happy marriage should have been the first hint that something special was on the way for the pair.
Last December Biel told E! News that she and Timberlake were planning to take their time before starting a family. When asked if playing a mother in The Truth About Emanuel made her start considering motherhood herself, the actress coyly answered, "I don't know. I'm not quite sure about sooner or later, but definitely as some point."
Her husband shared the same sentiments, telling Ok! Magazine, "I'm not against the idea [of starting a family] at all, but I think I still have some time ahead of me. Let's leave it to fate."
And it looks like the timing was finally right to embark on this next chapter: Timberlake is on the final leg of his 20/20 Experience World Tour and Biel finishing production on several films.
