Justin and Jessica’s private pregnancy
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel haven’t officially confirmed pregnancy reports because they are just “enjoying the news for themselves”.
The pair hit the headlines earlier this year when it was claimed they are expecting their first child together. And while the pair have yet to officially comment on the allegations, the news has been confirmed by multiple sources to Us Weekly magazine.
But the publication also reports that Justin and Jessica, 32, have not made a public announcement on the news because they want to “enjoy the news for themselves”.
“They just want a happy baby,” a source told Us Weekly.
The new claims come after Jessica’s reported pregnancy appeared to be outed by InStyle magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Ariel Foxman, who took to Instagram to offer her well-wishes.
“Congrats @jessicabiel on your impending motherhood…Looking forward to the red carpet maternity style pix to come #tbt (sic),” he captioned an earlier red carpet photo with the actress.
It had previously been claimed that Jessica is “at least” three months along in the pregnancy and is due in April.
Jessica and Justin married in 2012.
The actress has spoken about her interest in the relationship between mother and child in the past, after playing a mum onscreen in Playing for Keeps.
“Well, I had to understand the connection between a mother and their child, number one, which... I don't have kids, so that, for me, was a real interesting challenge,” she explained to Buzzine.com.
“And Gabriele [Muccino, director] was always talking to me about, like, ‘No, mothers and their children; it's an intense passion. Like, you don't let anyone mess with your kid.’ And that's kind of what he had to constantly talk me through because I was a little... I think my initial instinct was to be a little bit gentler to the George character about everything, and he was saying, ‘No, you are protective. You're like a mother bear trying to protect your cub.’”
