Hollywood has become the ultimate matchmaker for famous celebrities throughout the years. Albeit most high-profile couples divorce after a few years, some have been able to stay married.
These power couples such as Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, and Beyonce and Jay-Z prove to the world that true love does exist.
One of the very few lucky superstars to have found their happily ever after is Justin Timberlake. He first rose to stardom as a member of a very famous boy band called N-SYNC.
However, some of you may know him better from his acting projects such as Trolls, The Social Network, and Friends With Benefits.
But he’s not only successful with his career, but with his love life as well. Justin Timberlake is married to fellow American actress Jessica Biel, and has been for the last 10 years.
But when did this lovely romance first start? And how is their married life today? Well, keep reading to find out!
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel: First Chapter Of Their Love Story
In 2007, Timberlake and Biel first met when they both attended a birthday party of one of their mutual friends, which Justin was a host of. It was the Mirrors singer who developed interest towards the model.
But instead of asking her number directly, Justin had to get it from a friend. Biel then received a call from Justin, who invited her to a friendly date.
At first, Jessica wasn’t really interested in the former N-SYNC member. But after a lot of convincing, Jessica finally agreed to go out with Justin. After that, the two were spotted frequently together.
The media went crazy at the thought of a possible romance between two well-known celebrities. It wasn’t until May of the same year when Jessica and Justin were captured making-out with each other, which confirmed their relationship.
The couple would go on to make unforgettable memories together for the next three years. However, it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows between Justin and Jessica, because three years into their relationship, they announced that they were breaking up. There were many speculations about the unexpected split, such as:
- Justin Timberlake had an affair with Mila Kunis, whom he shared the screen with in their movie Friends With Benefits.
- Jessica Biel wanted to have a low-key life, while Justin still wants to bathe in the limelight.
The Timberlake Marriage
Six months after their split, Justin Timberlake put a ring on Jessica Biel while they were celebrating the holidays together in Montana. The proposal was very characteristic of Justin:
“When I did propose, I was saying to her – I was like: ‘Oh, look at the shadows on the mountains,’ and I had the ring on my pinkie. She was like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s beautiful.’ And I was like, ‘Do you see it?’”
The following year, they held a very luxurious wedding ceremony in Italy. The couple invited 100 guests to witness Jessica walk down the aisle and be serenaded by Justin with his self-composed song dedicated for the special occasion.
Their Life as a Married Couple
The pair enjoyed their life as a duo for three years before they welcomed a third member of the family: Silas Randall Timberlake.
And unlike most couples who become less romantic to their partners after marriage, Justin and Jessica remain very sweet to each other. There’s nothing but love and admiration when they speak about their relationship.
However, the Timberlakes faced a very serious challenge that threatened their marriage in 2019. No, it wasn’t the time E! News exposed Jessica who admitted in a 1999 interview that she’s not a fan of N-SYNC.
It was when paparazzis snapped a picture of Justin holding hands with co-star Alisha Wainwright. According to on-lookers, he behaved in a way that no married man should be, such as playing with another woman’s hands and letting it caress your knee.
Justin immediately responded to the controversy:
“I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that.”
Since then, the couple has remained very strong and even welcomed their second son in 2020: Phineas Timberlake.
So far, things seem to be looking very good for Mr. and Mrs. Timberlake. We wish them only the best for their family and careers!
