Whispers that the two were engaged started before Christmas, after reports circulated in the small town that Justin Timberlake has finally asked Jessica Biel to marry him. The two, who were vacationing together in Wyoming, allegedly became engaged on December 18 as they stayed at the five-star Amangani resort.
So how did the reported engagement of this fiercely private couple leak? Blame an over-excited jeweler with very loose lips. "Word on the street is that Justin Timberlake proposed to Jessica Biel at the Amangani last night," Tayloe Piggott Jewelry wrote on its Facebook page. "We're picking out post-engagement presents for them just in case they come in! Trying to play it cool."
Adding to the speculation was New York publicist Kyle Schaffler, who posted this insider scoop on his Twitter page: "I love that no media outlets know about the Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel engagement. Benefits of working in PR." Looks like we know now, Kyle!
Ironically, Justin's ex, Britney Spears, also got engaged recently. The fellow Mickey Mouse Club alum accepted longtime love Jason Trawick's proposal on December 15. Congrats to all the couples! Now, for the wedding song ... what do you think it should be?
