This Is How Justin Timberlake Won Over Jessica Biel

As divorce runs rampant in Hollywood and some of our favorite couples have called it quits (Chris Pratt and Anna Ferris for instance) we’re happy to report that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel seem to be completely head-over-heels in love.

Although as with any celebrity couple rumors fly about their marriage struggles, if their social media accounts are to be believed, they are still very smitten. The couple seems to still be going strong after six years of marriage.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel had a slow start to their relationship

Although Timberlake thought Biel was interesting and beautiful right off the bat, the two took the start of their relationship really slowly. They were still seeing other people and sources close to them said they were being careful not to get hurt.

They met in 2007 at the Golden Globes and Timberlake pursued his interest in Biel from there. They spoke on the phone and went on a few dates, but, the two didn’t even “kiss[ed] for a very long time,” according to Biel, since Timberlake went on tour right after they began hanging out. 

Their storybook marriage

Timberlake proposed in the mountains of Wyoming to a willing Biel. Timberlake popped the question while the couple was vacationing in Jackson, Wyoming, an insider tells the magazine. “Justin knows how much she loves snowboarding and the mountains, so it was the perfect place,” the source said.

Timberlake had the ring on his finger while they were exploring the mountains when he was able to finally get her to notice it.

The couple got married in the Italian countryside in 2012. We all remember Jessica Biel’s stunning and surprising pink wedding gown.

Timberlake and Biel have one son together

The couple welcomed baby boy, Silas, in 2015. Their son is the namesake of some pretty important people in their lives. The couple chose Silas Randall Timberlake, as Silas was the middle name of Timberlake’s grandfather and Randall is Timberlake’s dad’s name.

Recently, the little guy, who is now 4, joined mom in cheering on his dad at a celebrity golf tournament. Just further evidence that their family is super close and supportive of one another.

The Timberlake family is the cutest

From the matching Halloween costumes to their endless professions of love on social media, Timberlake and Biel’s family dynamic is simply the cutest. They give us hope about love, maintain a strong marriage despite the pressures of Hollywood, and have us swooning they are just so stinkin’ adorable.

On the red carpet at the 2018 Emmys, the couple even asked Access if they could send a secret hand signal to their son. And so, on the red carpet, in front of thousands of fans, they held up their hands in a series of secret signals. Could they be any cuter?

How did Timberlake win Biel’s heart?

One thing the couple has been very clear about is how Biel was a little “hard to get.” Timberlake remembers how he used old fashioned charm and determination to win over the beautiful Biel.

“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,” Timberlake recalls. “…if you’re asking a girl out on a date, it’s only right to do it in a way that she can hear your voice. 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.”

We’re glad she did because their relationship is really special.
