Rumors that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are engaged have been floating around since before Christmas, and they crossed over into semi-official status Wednesday (Jan. 4) with a report in Us Weekly.
The magazine cites “several insiders” who say that Timberlake did indeed ask Biel to marry him last month as they vacationed in Wyoming.
There’s no real reason to doubt the story, but we can only say “semi-official” because neither Biel nor Timberlake has said anything about the status of their relationship recently.
It’s actually kind of refreshing to see a celebrity couple try to keep some aspect of their life together private, but it’s also not an easy path to take. We get the feeling that the absence of any statement from their handlers will only fuel the desire to get pictures of them together, to catch Biel wearing a ring and the like.
We’d like to wish Biel and Timberlake luck — both in their life together and in navigating the waters of being a famous couple.
