After an on again off again five-year relationship, Punk’d star, Justin Timberlake and girlfriend, Jessica Biel are set to tie the knot later this week in southern Italy. The couple has been engaged for 10 months and are ready to make it official. Read all about it after the jump.
Timberlake popped the question to Biel in December of 2011 giving her a 6-carat diamond ring any woman would die for. And after months of hush-hush planning and a reported $6.5 million spent toward the ceremony, the two are ready to seal the deal.
According to US Weekly, Timberlake and Biel will wed later this week at an Italian resort. The couple have planned an intimate, rustic ceremony in a secret location in southern Italy and it’s rumored only family members and close friends will be in attendance. A source close to the couple said, “They are ready to get married.”
Timberlake spoke about Biel earlier this month saying, “She’s a really, really, really special person. Plus, she’s really, really hot!” And when questioned about marriage, he added, “I think it’s important to remember that you go into something like marriage knowing that you don’t know very much about it at all. But I do look at the marriage of my mother and stepdad, and what makes it work for them is that it’s a team effort.”
It sounds like Timberlake is more than ready to team up with Biel and give this marriage thing a try. It will be the first wedding for both of them. What do you think of the Timberlake and Biel union? Do you think their marriage will stand the test of time? Post a comment below and let us know.
