It was back in February at the Super Bowl where rumors first started that Jessica Biel and husband Justin Timberlake were expecting their second child. According to a source at the time, “she had a real glow about her” and “when he wasn’t performing the halftime show, Justin was spending a lot of time keeping a protective hand on Jessica’s stomach.”
Flash forward to present day and it sounds like those rumors were actually true! An insider tells OK! exclusively that, “Jessica’s inner circle is buzzing that she’s nearly three months along with a baby girl, but she wants to keep it hush-hush until she’s well into the second semester.”
Jessica’s pregnancy would actually explain why the typically busy celeb mom (to their 2-year-old son Silas) has been taking it easy lately, even stepping behind the camera of her hit show The Sinner, which earned the talented actress her first Best Actress Golden Globe nomination last year. The source revealed, “Jess is taking a step back to take care of herself.” In addition to her blossoming acting career, the 36-year-old also runs the family restaurant Au Fudge in Los Angeles.
The 7th Heaven star won’t be the only one putting family first as her pregnancy progresses. Justin will be wrapping up his Man of the Woods tour at the end of January, right around the baby’s due date. That would mean they could both focus on their new little one. The pregnancy news would also be a welcome boost for their marriage, which was strained when Justin reportedly cheated on Jessica in 2014, after they had been married for two years, and after he was snapped with a backup dancer in Paris.
But the insider claimed that all of that is behind them, especially since Silas was born. “He promised Jess that his wild behavior is a thing of the past,” they said. With their marriage now stronger than ever, and the two embodying serious couples goals, the source claimed that the two are “in an amazing place now.” They concluded that, “watching Justin with Silas has only strengthened their bond. Jessica trusts that Justin is completely dedicated to their family. Even if she would’ve preferred to wait another year, Justin just charmed her into it!”
