Jessica Biel's Pregnancy 'Confirmed' By Justin Timberlake's Friend?


Jessica Biel IS pregnant with Justin Timberlake's baby, a friend has 'confirmed'.

The two stars have stayed tight-lipped on rumours they are expecting a child together, but now Justin's former 'N Sync bandmate Joey Fatone has confirmed that they're to become parents.

The boy band singer told In Touch: "He told me a while ago, and I kept my mouth shut. But now I can talk about it!"

Joey, 37, added: "Jessica is awesome. And Justin is a kid at heart."

Jessica, 32, and Justin, 33, dated on and off for several years, before getting hitched in October 2012.

They have yet to confirm the pregnancy officially, but Jessica was seen covering up in a flowing grey coat while out and about on Tuesday.

Last year, Jessica said she wanted kids, but there was no rush.

She told People:"I'm not sure about sooner or later. But definitely at some point.

"Every woman has some kind of intuition of how they'd interact with a child. I feel comfortable around kids..."

And Justin told OK! Magazine: "I'm not against the idea [of parenthood] at all, but I think I still have some time ahead of me.

"Let's leave it to fate. Life didn't change overnight. Marriage, family - it's all part of the normal steps you take when you reach your thirties."

Speaking about married life, Jessica said just after their honeymoon: "It's weird because it feels like almost nothing has changed, yet something that you can't really describe, or something that isn't tangible, has changed.

"It just feels incredible."
