Justin Timberlake and actress wife Jessica Biel are expecting their first child next year. The couple hasn’t confirmed the news. However, friends and family have given statements on their behalf (although, seemingly without their permission).
Justin’s former NSYNC band mate, Joey Fatone, spoke to the tabloids about the baby. “[Justin] told me a while ago, and I kept my mouth shut… But now I can talk about it!” Joey told InTouch Weekly.
“Jessica is awesome, and Justin is a kid at heart,” he continued. “[They’ll have] fun.”
A source tells Star Magazine Jessica hoped a “Band-Aid baby” would fix her marriage problems. However, Justin is more distant than ever “Jess honestly thought that when she got pregnant, Justin would recommit himself to family life. But he’s been really disrespectful. Justin ignores Jess and treats her like she’s merely a friend.”
After he allegedly “missed several pregnancy milestones,” Jessica “told him she’s sick of hearing about cheating and that if they’re going to make it work, he has to become a more hands-on, full time husband and dad.”
And she’s resorted to an ultimatum: “And if he doesn’t [get it together], she said she’d divorce him and raise their baby as a single mom!”
