I have been in love with Justin Timberlake ever since I saw him prance across my television screen with his bleached blonde curls and super '90s outfits on full display. Early on, I came to terms that my future relationship with Timberlake might not be the most plausible, so I committed myself to support to his happiness and endeavors in love. He has not always made the choices that I agreed with. That is, until Justin Timberlake got together with Jessica Biel. Being a fan of Mary Camden, Biel seemed like a down-to-earth, cool, and beautiful girl and Timberlake has pretty much never shied away from letting us now that his wifey is exactly all of those things.
Sunday night at the iHeart Radio Awards, Timberlake was recognized with the Innovator Award, and took his chance at the podium to gush about Biel. He told the adoring fans,
You can't have innovation without creation... I want to thank my best friend, my favorite collaborator, my wife Jessica at home. Honey, I can't wait to see our greatest creation yet. Don't worry, daddy's heading home right now to innovate by learning how to change a poopy diaper and get my swaddle on.
D'awww! So while, Timberlake and Biel are preparing to welcome their newest creation in the next few weeks, I wanted to celebrate their adorable relationship and gather all of the times they've let the world know exactly how much they love each other.
When Justin Posted the Sweetest Instagram Of All Time
Clearly the caption is adorable, but it's not even needed, really. This photo is just so perfect and sweet and I'm going to go wallow in a tub of ice cream.
When Marrying Jessica Was His Best Decision
Timberlake told The Ellen Degeneres Show,
Every once in a while I can catch a glimpse of her when she doesn’t see me looking and I have this moment where I’m like if you never make a good decision... if you only make bad decisions for the rest of your life, you made one really good decision because she’s just like... it’s nice to marry your friend. It’s nice to marry your best friend. It suits me.
On How Jessica Loves Calling Justin Her Husband
Truly in post-wedding bliss, Biel shared with Ellen Degeneres that she loves calling Timberlake her husband. She explained,
The weirdest and kind of most wonderful thing is that word. That's my "husband." And every time I say it, I go really Southern with it — "That's my husband..." It's weird because it's feels like almost nothing has changed, but yet something that you really can't describe — or something that isn't really tangible — has changed... It feels like you have this partner who is going to be with you and also change light bulbs and do dishes with you.
When Justin Asked Her Out, The Old-Fashioned Way
Timberlake was really honest with reporters at a press conference for Trouble With the Curve and spoke about Biel, saying, "She's a really, really, really special person. Plus, she's really, really, hot!" Hey, I would say the same thing. He also shared that he is old-fashioned in his approach if he really likes someone:
There was nothing starry about the way we got together. It was very un-Hollywood-esque, in fact. We met and got talking. Afterwards I asked my friend if I could call her and ask her out... I did it the old fashioned way — by telephone. That's something I learned from both my stepdad and my grandfather — that there is a thing called chivalry and it doesn't have to die with the birth of the Internet... I had to be pretty persistent in order to get her to say yes. But I have a fair amount of tenacity and if I want something I stick to it. And in the end she agreed.
When Jessica Spoke About Their Marriage
Although Biel is notoriously more quiet when it comes to sharing her relationship details with press, she does have some small gems that tell a lot about her love. While engaged, Biel was asked by Gala magazine why she chose Timberlake and how married life could change them. She responded,
The ability to communicate well... to be able to express his feelings. Then, loyalty. And, finally, honesty... For me, getting married doesn't mean we should limit ourselves to some predefined idea. Rather, it's an opportunity to explore new things in life.
When Justin Wasn't Bitter At All
In June 2011, the couple had just recently gone on a break. When he sat down with Vanity Fair , though, he showed no signs of bitterness and still showed great respect and love for his then ex-girlfriend, which says a lot about Timberlake and his dedication to her:
She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life... In my 30 years, she is the most special person, O.K.? I don’t want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me — for instance, her.
