Justin Timberlake captured some more hearts during last night’s broadcast of the IHeartMusic Awards while accepting his Innovator Award. The chart-topper multi-platinum-selling artist started his acceptance speech by quoting one of the greatest innovators in history Steve Jobs and then offered some words about dreaming big and sticking with it from President Theodore Roosevelt,
He ended his inspirational schpiel with a shout out to his wife Jessica Biel, who he called “best friend and favorite collaborator” and is heavily pregnant, about to deliver the couple’s first child.
“Lastly, you can’t have innovation without creation, so finally I want to thank my best friend, my favorite collaborator, my wife Jessica at home who’s watching,” Timberlake concluded. “Honey, I can’t wait to see our greatest creation yet. Don’t worry, Daddy’s heading home right now to innovate by learning how to change a poopy diaper and get my swaddle on.”
Awwww! Too sweet!
In this installment of our bumpwatch roundup, we’ve got a wide variety of recent and a little bit dated celebrity-related pregnancy news:

So Justin Timberlake just confirmed the worst-kept secret in a little while, that he and his wife actress Jessica Biel are expecting their first child together.
“Thank you EVERYONE for the Bday wishes!,” he captioned
on Instagram. “This year, I’m getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN’T WAIT. #BoyOrGirl #YouNeverKnow #WeDontEvenKnow #WeAreTakingBets”
Gossip blogs and websites have long, since October
, speculated that the duo, who have been married since 2012, were expecting. And…there have been quite a few sightings and postings with photos
of Mrs. Timberlake out and about with quite a bulbous bump. And…their close friends kept accidentally confirming it
in the media.
But anyway, Happy Birthday Justin and Congrats you two!
Joey Fantone confirmed confirmed weeks of speculation that actress Jessica Biel is pregnant with her husband Justin Timberlake‘s first child.
“He told me a while ago, and I kept my mouth shut,” Fatone recently told InTouch
. “But now I can talk about it!”
The ex N’Sync bandmember added, “Jessica is awesome, and Justin is a kid at heart…[They’ll have] fun.”
We have got virtual confirmation that Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are expecting their first child.
On Thursday, InStyle editor Ariel Foxman , who is pals with Biel, tweeted a pic of Biel with the following suspicious caption:
“Congrats @jessicabiel on your impending motherhood … Looking forward to the red carpet maternity style pix to come #tbt.”
Neither Biel or Timberlake’s camp has responded to requests for comment.
This week, RadarOnline showed a pic
of Biel which revealed her bare bulbous bump and included in the story a source saying she is about three months along.
Me thinks they are hesitant to come forward too soon with confirmation because perhaps she has suffered losses in the past and want to be very very certain the pregnancy will be able to be carried to term before sharing the news with the public.
That’s just my thoughts. If so, good luck, God Speed and congrats Jessica and Justin!

Last night, was also about debunking false reporting about pregnancy.
A tiny bump in a photo with Jared Lareto at a pre-Oscar party had a few people speculating that Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon was preggers with her second kid with husband Jim Toth.
But the actress, who is mom to 14-year old Ava and 10-year old Deacon with ex-hubby Ryan Phillipe and 1-year old Tennessee with Toth, showed up at the Vanity Fair post-Oscar party in West Hollywood wearing a mid-length sequinned asymmetrical BOSS number with a plunging neckline revealing plenty cleavage, side boob and bare tummy. The Walk the Line actress toted a Roger Vivier clutch and wore Irene Neuwirth jewels.
also shut down pregnancy rumors as well in a Chanel Couture
dress at the Academy Awards, worn with Tiffany jewels last night, and revealing a pretty small tiny waistline. This confirmed what her grandmom-in-law had said in the press about how Biel and new hubby Justin Timberlake are too busy for children.
“They are married but they are so busy, both of them, it’s hard going,” Timberlake’s grandmom Sadie Bomar told The Sun
. “I’m sure when it’s right to have children they will, but not now. They do love each other dearly but they are apart so much it’s going to be hard going for them . . . I think Jessica finds that really tough. She’s on her own a good deal.”
Awww. Bellytich and other outlets had reported
back this January that the super cute power couple were expecting. Oh well. False alarm!
