Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are one celebrity couple who definitely have what it takes to go the distance. With so many celebrity relationships and marriages fizzling out before they even make it to their honeymoon, Justin and Jessica have managed to find what works for them. After all, they’ve been a happily married couple since 2012 and for the most part have managed to keep their personal lives out of the spotlight and under the radar.
Plus, there’s no denying that Justin and Jessica make good-looking couple together. Sure, both have dated plenty of high-profile celebrities in the past, but there’s something about Justin and Jessica that make them stand out from the rest of the crowd. It might be the fact that they just have that kind of chemistry that says they are still into each other, and in more ways than one. You can definitely tell by the way Justin looks at Jessica each and every time she’s on the red carpet!
With that being said, here are 20 times that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were mom and dad goals.
20 There's No Drama Between Them
While there are plenty of celebrity couples who make headlines on almost a daily basis, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel haven’t received that same kind of treatment. In other words, there’s no made up, fabricated drama coming from the Timberlake camp. That’s because Justin and Jessica like to live a very low-key life with their son, Silas, at home. In fact, Jessica has even said that she would rather just hang out at home with the two most important men in her life other than hit the Hollywood club circuit on any given night.
19 They Have Similar Values
Another reason why Justin and Jessica make their marriage look so easy is because they both have very similar values. They are very focused and driven towards their goals. Jessica told Marie Claire, "We have similar values; we believe in loyalty, honesty. We like to have fun. We like a lot of the same things. Also, in the business, we're all very career-oriented, and you have to be a little selfish. I understand that about my peers—about being focused and driven—and if you can find that and someone who shares the same values as you, it's like: Score!"
18 Their Child Has Changed Their World
Fans have definitely seen Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel grow up before them. After all, they’ve been in the spotlight for decades now. Jessica admits that their worlds have changed ever since they became parents. Jessica told Marie Claire, “You think you're a selfless person, and then you realize you're not. These little people come around, and they require so much, and your schedule is really not your own, nor is it important anymore, and it's very clear that it's your life now revolving around this dude. I'm not that person who feels like, Oh, my whole life changes for my kid, but it does."
17 He Still Adores Her
Truth be told, there’s nothing more attractive than seeing a man totally in love with his wife and his children. And as much as we’ve always loved Justin Timberlake, it’s his role as a dedicated husband and a father that makes you like him even more. After all these years he still adores Jessica and it shows. Justin says the sweetest things about her. He told Us Weekly, “When I met Jess, it was undeniable how beautiful she is. We were at a surprise party in Hollywood at a speakeasy kind of bar, a private club, and we were standing around in a group of people.”
16 He Knew She Was The One
It didn’t take long for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel to realize that they were meant to be with one another. As a matter of fact, they went from ‘casual dating’ to ‘exclusive couple’ very quickly. According to Justin, they just had this undeniable chemistry that he couldn’t deny. And since then, they’ve been living a very quiet, happy life together outside of the spotlight. Speaking about how they first met, Justin told Us Weekly, “When I came back from my tour, we spent a month together. After that, I said, ‘I really want to be exclusive.’ And somehow, she said, ‘So do I.’”
15 They Stay Out Of The Media
When Justin Timberlake was still dating Britney Spears, their relationship would make headlines internationally. Everyone wanted to know everything; from what they were wearing, what they ate for lunch, and where they plan to vacation next. But with Jessica, it’s a whole different story. The tabloid media leaves them alone for the most part. Instead, they just know how to carefully give the world a glimpse of their private lives behind closed doors, but not too much of it.
14 He Can’t Stop Gushing About Her
You know Justin has found the woman of his dreams, simply because he can’t stop gushing about Jessica to the press. It is truly adorable to see someone so in love with his wife. He also said, “She’s a different person from when I first met her, but she’s also the same. I’m sure she’d say the same thing about me. Ten years is a long time. I used to think we want to be loved for what we are, but maybe more now, I think we want to be loved for what we aren’t. I think we want to be loved.”
13 He's Made Family His Top Priority
Justin Timberlake has also made it pretty clear that he’s not the same guy he used to be. He’s no longer staying up all night with his friends. Instead, he would rather just hang out with Jessica and Silas at home. His family and his marriage are his priority. “Gone is the partying and hanging out until all hours of the night, [...] Justin is a very different man this tour around. He has been a family man,” according to Us Weekly.
12 They Enjoy Doing The Same Things
Believe it or not, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel like to practice cryotherapy together. Every so often they like to stand in a tank of subzero temperatures for three minutes. It sparks a reaction from their body and helps them drop lbs. Apparently, the treatment fights inflammation and both Jessica and Justin are huge fans. Apparently, Justin does it whenever he’s feeling joint pain after his extensive touring schedule. Jessica, meanwhile, simply just likes to join him. A source told Page Six earlier this year, “When Justin is in town, he and Jessica are here every other day.”
11 Justin Is Always Supportive
It’s pretty clear that Justin was very excited to become a father when Jessica found out that she was pregnant with their first child. That’s why he stood by her side throughout her entire pregnancy, even though she didn’t have what you would call a normal birth plan! According to Entertainment Tonight, Jessica said, “Our birth plan was anything but normal. We had two midwives, one doula, one meditation birthing class, a ton of hippie baby books, and a lovely home in the Hollywood Hills that we had turned into a labor training facility that we called The Octagon. So, not exactly normal.”
10 He Stood By Her Side
With that being said, Justin was extremely supportive right before Jessica gave birth to Silas. It wasn’t easy, but they managed to do it together. “When all our plans fell apart and the serene, natural childbirth we had envisioned ended with a transfer to the hospital [...], we arrived home exhausted, disillusioned, and totally [dismayed],” Biel is quoted as saying. “I was obsessed with everything organic, toxin-free, natural, and homeopathic for our kid."
9 They Speak Openly
When it comes to what kind of parents they are at home, Justin and Jessica are very honest and open with their child, Silas. They don’t hide anything and they talk about things that don’t (or at least shouldn’t) cause any embarrassment. As a mother, the actress wants to be able to talk about anything with her boys. Jessica told Billboard, they speak openly about their bodies with Silas. She said. “We just talk about it. I know it’s really young, but I really believe that if you start this early, there’s no shame.”
8 Their Work Schedules
Jessica admits that raising a family and trying to juggle their careers isn’t always easy, but they do their best to make things work. They have their ups and downs just like everyone else. Jessica told Extra, “He’s been, honestly, my biggest supporter throughout the whole experience. This has been such an intense work experience for my family. I haven’t ever worked full-time while having a child. When you do that, your partner has to take up all the slack. He’s just been an angel and been so supportive of this for me and my career and this moment — it’s been really nice.”
7 He Writes Songs About Her
You know that your husband loves you when he dedicates and writes his biggest hits about you! Justin told Us Weekly, “I wrote the song ‘Mirrors’ for my wife. We were living together at the time. We weren’t engaged yet. In fact, it was years before I proposed. She’s become a huge influence in my life, and I have such admiration for her. … She’s a very good writer. She’s a poet. She’s a tremendous actor. She’s funny. She changed me. She changed my life. All of that is in ‘Mirrors.’ Not the details. But the way it felt to have my life be touched by her.”
6 He Worships Her
What makes Justin and Jessica so likable as a celebrity couple, is that they are a married couple who are learning, loving, and growing together. Justin also had this to say (via Us Weekly): “I’ve watched my wife change. I’ve watched her body change. It’s a temple. It should be worshiped. It should be marveled at. I’m fascinated by her. She’s everything, man. She just constantly surprises me with who she is, and who she’s becoming, and I really hope I do the same for her. I’m excited to see what she’s going to do next. I wake up and roll over and look at her, and I’m inspired.”
5 They Make Time For Date Nights
While they have a hard time seeing each other throughout the week, Justin and Jessica make it a priority to have date nights on the weekends, regardless of what their schedule might look like. Jessica told USA Today, “I think we do a really good job of, even though we're really busy, taking one day a week and having a date night or taking a vacation just the two of us, and then making sure we have a family thing set up. You just have to make it a priority, really, because it's easy for all of that stuff to get put on the wayside.”
4 Finding Balance Is Key
Jessica has admitted that when it comes to being a wife and a mother, she’s still learning new lessons each and every day. She also doesn’t take anything for granted and focuses on her priorities: her marriage and her family. Speaking about how they juggle their careers with their family life, Jessica told USA Today, “That is an ongoing balancing act that maybe you never 100% master. We're always working, day in and day out, to find that good balance. And Justin, I love the way he always puts it. He's like, ‘Yeah, you get married, but you still have to date each other. That's really important.’”
3 Family First
One of the reasons why Jessica is very careful with the projects that she chooses these days is simply because she wants to pick television shows and films that will allow her enough time to spend with her family. After all, her son Silas is still young and he needs his mother around, especially during these formative toddler years. Jessica told USA Today, “More than anything, you want to spend time with your family, and it's such a full body-and-soul experience being an actor that you have to pick wisely. Otherwise, you're just gone all the time and that's not what I want.”
2 They Don't Live A Hollywood Lifestyle
You would think by being two of the biggest stars in the entertainment industry that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel would have a Hollywood lifestyle. But that’s not the case at all. In fact, Jessica admits that even though she’s grown up in the spotlight, her life has always been quite normal. In other words, her feet are always firmly planted on the ground. "My Hollywood experience as a young person was never one of those True Hollywood stories where I was left alone to my own devices with no parental supervision," Jessica told Marie Claire. "There was always somebody with me."
