When it comes to cute Hollywood couples, Justin Timberlake and his wife, Jessica Biel, pretty much top the list. The couple has experienced highs and lows throughout their relationship — from Justin’s PDA scandal to welcoming their two sons — and now, it seems like their bond is stronger than ever.
The former ‘NSync member and the 7th Heaven alum started dating in 2007 after they met at a birthday party that Justin threw for a mutual friend. They briefly split in March 2011 but got back together that July. Justin proposed to Jessica in December 2011 and they tied the knot in October 2012. Jessica gave birth to their first son, Silas, in April 2015. The couple secretly welcomed baby No. 2, another boy, in July 2020.
“They told very few people. This has really brought them closer together again. They’d just learned they were having baby No. 2,” an insider revealed to In Touch. “It was a very difficult few months for them, but they came out the other side, and now they have this beautiful little boy.”
Justin and Jessica’s newest addition to their family came eight months after the “Cry Me a River” singer’s public scandal. In November 2019, he was photographed holding hands with Palmer costar Alisha Wainwright during a drunken night out with the rest of the cast while filming on location in New Orleans. In the photos, Alisha could be seen placing her hand on Justin’s knee and in another photo, the pair were holding hands.
Two weeks after the scandal, the Trolls star issued a public apology to his wife and family. “I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family I feel it is important to address recent rumors that are hurting the people I love,” he wrote via Instagram. “A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement — but let me be clear — nothing happened between me and my costar.”
Justin added, “I want to 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.”
Following the incident, the couple put on a united front and shared sweet messages to each other in honor of Justin’s birthday in January and for Valentine’s Day. Justin even went all out for an intimate celebration for Jessica’s birthday in March.
“[They’re] in a good place right now,” a source exclusively told In Touch at the time. “The played out drama on the set of Justin’s film is behind them. Jessica hasn’t forgotten, but she’s not making him suffer for it. She’s definitely moved forward. There’s absolutely no doubt that they love each other.”
