Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel Are Having a Baby, According to a Random 'N Sync Member Who's All Up in Their Biz — UPDATE

Well, this is an interesting turn of events. After much speculation, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are expecting a baby...according to former 'NSYNC member Joey Fatone. Wow, I guess I didn't know those two were so close. Per InTouch, Fatone revealed to the publication that he's known about their first baby for awhile now, but he was sworn to secrecy. However, now he's allowed to talk about it:

[Timberlake] told me a while ago, and I kept my mouth shut. But now I can talk about it! Jessica is awesome, and Justin is a kid at heart. [They’ll have] fun.

(Update: On Jan. 31, Justin Timberlake's 34th birthday, the couple confirmed they are expecting a baby via Timberlake's Instagram.)

Of course, we don't know if Biel and Timberlake are really expecting, but if you're a firm believer in Fatone's words, then you can kiss those baby rumor haters bye, bye, bye. Also, anyone else bewildered by the fact that Fatone and Timberlake are reportedly such close friends? I mean, Timberlake supposedly trusted Fatone enough to reveal his alleged baby news. Oh, and why does Fatone say he can talk about it "now?" What's so special about this very moment? Did Timberlake give him the go-ahead? I have no idea, but, for real, talk about an unlikely source to "confirm" Timberlake and Biel's first baby.

If Timberlake did indeed inform Fatone about his and Biel's alleged pregnancy and didn't want him telling the media, then their friendship is probably so over, which will obviously tear up both of their hearts.
