Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are rumored to be engaged, and Justin is reported to have popped the question during a pre-Christmas vacation in Wyoming.
According to Tayloe Piggott Jewelry in Wyoming, Timberlake got on one knee on Sunday night while they were staying at the five-star Amangani resort. The jeweler wrote on their Facebook page:
“Word on the street is that Justin Timberlake proposed to Jessica Biel at the Amangani last night. We’re picking out post-engagement presents for them just in case they come in! Trying to play it cool.”
And we all know nothing says “playing it cool” like announcing it to the entire world on Facebook.
New York PR agent Kyle Schaffler confirmed the rumor when he tweeted:
“I love that no media outlets know about the Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel engagement. Benefits of working in PR.”
Hey everybody in the world, isn’t it cool that none of you know Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are engaged? And you’ll never know either, because PR is—oh sh-t.
No official announcements from either side, yet, but this wouldn’t be terribly surprising. After they split in March and then reconciled months later, sources said that Justin knew he would lose Jessica if he didn’t lock that down. A source told Us Weekly: "Justin thinks marriage would hurt his career, but if Jessica threatened to leave, he'd do it."
And recently, Jessica admitted she wants to settle down and have kids.
"I think probably at some point it would be something I’m interested in," Biel told Elle magazine. "But I don’t feel pressured. I was never one of those girls who dreamt of my wedding and my Prince Charming."
Well, your Prince Charming is here, darling. And he’s wearing a fedora.
