A Timeline of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s Relationship
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are one of the few celebrity couples that have seemingly remained unaffected by the pressures that come with being in the public eye. Even amid revelations rolling out from Timberlake’s ex Britney Spears‘s “The Woman in Me” memoir (out Oct. 24), the two haven’t publicly responded to the fan discourse.
Timberlake and Biel were first linked in 2007 when they met at a party. “There was nothing starry about the way we got together. It was very un-Hollywood-esque, in fact,” Timberlake said in 2012, per Us Weekly. “We met and got talking. Afterwards, I asked my friend if I could call her and ask her out. My friend called Jessica and Jessica said, ‘Yes.’ So, I called her.”
Following their 2012 wedding, the former NSYNC singer and “7th Heaven” actor started a family and they’re now parents to their two children, Silas (born in 2015) and Phineas (born in 2020). Despite having a few hiccups in their relationship – like their brief split in 2011 and Timberlake’s hand-holding incident with his “Palmer” costar Alisha Wainwright – Timberlake and Biel appear to still be going strong. Touching on their relationship, the “Candy” star explained to Access in April 2022, “We’ve had our ups and down like everybody and I’m just really proud of it, and I’m still the happiest and loving my life.”
In 2022, the couple celebrated their 10-year wedding anniversary and passed the 11-year mark on Oct. 19. Here are some more highlights from their relationship over the years, from their early beginnings to now.
