Love is most definitely in the air right now as yet another celebrity couple look set to tie the knot, this time it’s the two mega stars that are Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel! Anyone else feeling a little jealous right now?
It was only a matter of days ago that I wrote about the engagement news of JLS band member Marvin Humes and The Saturdays star Rochelle Wiseman and now we have yet another celebrity engagement on our hands!
Wow, is it just me or is there some kind of secret engagement bet going on in celeb land that we don’t know about?
The 30 year-old SexyBack singer is said to have proposed to the Hollywood actress in late December during a pre-Christmas snowboarding break in Jackson, Wyoming.
A source told US Weekly magazine: “Justin knows how much she loves snowboarding and the mountains, so it was the perfect place.
“This was the basis for getting back together. When they reunited they had a conversation about taking the next step.”
The couple have dated on and off for the past four years and after seperating briefly for three months during last year, reunited again in August. They are believed to have celebrated their engagement with both their friends and family back at Timberlake’s home in Big Sky, Montana.
The news comes just after Jessica, 29, revealed she was in no hurry to walk down the aisle, though obviously it seems she had a quick change of mind as, let’s face it, who wouldn’t when your boyfriend looks like Justin!
She recently said: “I was never one of those girls who dreamed of my wedding and my Prince Charming.”
“To p*** off my mum, I used to say, ‘I’m never having kids, and I’m going to be a fabulously rich old maid living in a house with cute butlers and dogs.’”
And so it seems this time of year is proving to be a very popular time for proposals, I have seen so many both in the celeb world and in reality which begs the question – what’s so special about this time of year? I have come to believe it has something to do with the whole new year, new start, new-me philosophy and maybe the fact that people get caught up in the emotion and excitment that the new year brings. Maybe it makes people realise what they have and how special it is, thus spurring them on to the next big relationship step.
Either way, the new year and festive period makes a perfect time for proposal, it’s certainly a brilliant way of starting off the new year, so good call Justin! The sexy superstars undoubtedly make a great couple, congratulations to the both of them!
