It’s official! Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are engaged. The couple has had an on-again, off-again rather confusing romance since some time back in 2007. Now they’ve decided to tie the knot.
According to a report from Us Weekly, the engagement has been confirmed. Justin popped the question to Jessica in late December while the two were in Jackson, Wyoming.
“Justin knows how much she loves snowboarding and the mountains, so it was the perfect place,” a source says.
It seems the engagement was preceded by a series of steps in the couple’s relationship. Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake split for a few months in 2011. When they got back together, she made it very clear to him that he was the man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with.
“When they reunited, they had a conversation about taking the next step,” the source says.
Jessica Biel is presently starring in the hit film New Year’s Eve. She got her acting start back on the television series 7th Heaven, playing the role of Mary Camden–a pastor’s daughter and one of several children in a large Christian family. Justin Timberlake, of course, got his start as a singer in the boy band ‘N Sync. From there, he became a solo artist and once he tried his hand as an actor it became clear he excelled in that entertainment realm as well.
Congratulations are no doubt in order for both Jessica Biel, 29, and Justin Timberlake, 30. It sounds like they will be very happy in their new life together. No word has been released as to when the two will actually get married, but fans will be eagerly awaiting confirmation of a date.
A friend of Justin’s says the singer and actor has “never been happier,” regarding his relationship and recent engagement to Jessica Biel.
“He knew it was the right time to propose,” the friend adds.
Way to go, Justin!
