It's official: Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are getting married! Sure, we already knew it, but the couple hadn't acknowledged their upcoming nuptials before Biel sat down with Gala magazine. In the interview, the "Magic Mike" actress talks about how the marriage will change their relationship and plans for children.
"I don't think our marriage will change anything," Biel said. "It will be a challenge finding a balance between my private life, family and work, and I'm ready."
As for kids, the 30-year-old actress said there's no rush. "For me, getting married doesn't mean we should limit ourselves to some predefined idea. Rather, it's an opportunity to explore new things in life."
Here, here! We love that attitude.
Sadly, the toned actress didn't reveal anything about their actual wedding, but sources have dropped hints about their star-studded engagement party and wedding plans.
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake's Happy Engagement Party
The couple had a black-tie engagement party over the Memorial Day weekend at the home of Estee Stanley, Timberlake's longtime friend and collaborator. Guests included Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Trace Ayala, Ellen DeGeneres, Portia DeRossi and Amy Adams, according to US Weekly and celeb chef Wolfgang Puck catered the party.
The couple seemed at ease with each other's pals, according to the source.
"You can see that they have been dating for a long time and really know each others friends and family well. The party was a fun celebration and a preview of what's to come with the wedding," the source told US Weekly.
Summer Wedding Plans?
An engagement party doesn't mean that the nuptials are close, but some sources say the wedding will take place this summer. The summer wedding idea was sort of confirmed by Timberlake's grandmother earlier this year.
"They don't know if the wedding will be in Memphis or Colorado, it's all very new they haven't made any plans yet," Sadie Bomar said after her grandson proposed. However, a source later told US Weekly that it'll be in California in August.
Biel's dress will definitely be a well-known designer - and sources say its one that celebs routinely go to for wedding gowns. "Monique Lhuillier has sent over some sketches," a source said. "She's Jessica's first choice."
Timberlake's mom, Lynn Harless, is said to be heavily involved in the planning, too.
One thing we do know for sure? Former *NSYNC bandmate Lance Bass will be there! He recently revealed what he's planning to get the couple for a wedding present.
"The man has everything, so a nice little toaster will do -- maybe the one that puts a little Mickey Mouse emblem on it!" Bass joked to US Weekly at a recent event in Hollywood.
