Us Weekly revealed that a six-time Grammy winner proposed to Biel in December, while the couple were spending their vacationing in Jackson, Wyoming.
“Justin knows how much she loves snowboarding and the mountains, so it was the perfect place,” one source explains.
For Mr. Timberlake, a pop singer whose acting career took off after the 2010 film “The Social Network,” and Biel, who rose to fame with the series “7th Heaven,” it will be the first marriage, Huff Post says.
Another insider claimed Timberlake had “never been happier … he knew it was the right time to propose.”
The couple was first noticed in 2007, when Timberlake and Biel were seen together in Utah at the Sundance Film Festival. The pair remained one of the most visible couples in Hollywood until last March, when they decided to take some break.
“We are confirming that they mutually have decided to part ways,” the couple told reporters.
However, an insiderrevealed, “The two remain friends and continue to hold the highest level of love and respect for each other.”
However, destiny wanted the two to be together.
Biel made it clear that she would like to spend her life with Timberlake, Nagaland Post said.
She told Vogue, “I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t feel the need to clear anything up. It’s the most precious thing that I have in my life, and I care about it so much that I don’t care about what anyone says or thinks. I have just not addressed it in any real way, and I’m not going to. It’s mine. And I really like that about it.”
“When they reunited, they had a conversation about taking the next step.”
In June, Timberlake announced that Biel still held a special place in his.
“She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life … In my 30 years, she is the most special person, ok? I just don’t want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me – for instance, her,” the Grammy owner said.
People reports that Biel, in her turn, said only last year, “I was never one of those girls who dreamt of my wedding and my Prince Charming,” but it looks like she’s about to have both.
The star called his granny on Christmas to tell her the news.
Sadie Bomar confirmed: “He called me on Christmas Day and told me he’s engaged.” She added that her grandson even gave her strict orders to keep quiet “until after the holidays.”
Happy grandma added that “the family loves Jessie… she’s a very sweet girl.”
When they were seen having brunch last fall in a Colorado mountaintop bar, an insider shared with PEOPLE: “There was plenty of P.D.A., and they seemed happy.” Other sightings soon followed in Las Vegas, in New York and in Hollywood.
