A few weeks ago, rumors of an engagement between Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel began circulating the web, with sources claiming that the "Sexy Back" singer popped the question to the starlet in Jackson, Wyo. and it sounded pretty legit. But after weeks went by with no confirmation one way or the other, I decided to chalk it all up to falsified celebrity gossip...until now. More sources have come out of the woodwork this week, further claiming that the engagement rumors are the real deal. And while I'm not one to fully believe everything these mysterious sources say, the actual sites that are now reporting the story are reliable enough to make me think this whole thing could be legit after all.
Us Weekly, ABC News, HuffPo, Radar Online, and the New York Daily News are all reporting that Timberlake and Biel became engaged in late December and that they are very happy about their upcoming nuptials. One insider revealed that Timberlake popped the question to Biel in the mountains of Wyoming because "Justin knows how much she loves snowboarding and the mountains, so it was the perfect place."
If you remember, the on-again, off-again couple split up (yet again) in 2011, only to get back together three months later. But absence makes the heart grow fonder and according to a source, "When they reunited, they had a conversation about taking the next step" - a step down the aisle, evidently. Another Timberlake insider added that he's "never been happier" with the New Year's Eve actress and "He knew it was the right time to propose."
Of course, their reps have yet to confirm the news, but with so many reliable sources reporting on the story, I have a hard time believing the rumors aren't true. In fact, now that I think about it, it's only fitting for these engagement rumors to be as much of a rollercoaster ride as the actual relationship. These two have been back and forth so many times, it wouldn't seem right if their engagement didn't work in the same exact way.
As always, stay tuned for further confirmation!
