He liked it. He put a ring on it. And what a sparkler it is (obvs). After months of speculation, Jessica Biel was finally snapped sporting a belter bit of bling while sitting courtside at the L.A. Lakers game inside the Staples Center on Sunday. Yay!
The actress and Justin Timberlake are rumoured to have been engaged since their annual Christmas holiday in Montana with plans afoot for a summer wedding, but a sparkly rock and Mr JT were notable absentees on the awards circuit in recent months. Jessica went solo, prompting the gossip mill to speculate whether the on-again, off-again relationship was well, off-again.

No stranger to the celebrity dating circuit, the former N’Sync-er counts Britney ‘Mousketeer’ Spears and Cameron Diaz as past long-time loves. To be honest, we were getting a bit worried that the Trouser-snake was a tad commitment-phobe (or maybe that’s just wishful thinking on our part) so we are delighted that he has indeed, got down on bended knee and popped the question to the beautiful Ms Biel.
Now for the specifics – no A-list engagement ring would be complete without a sizeable sparkler and Jessica’s is no exception. The square, cushion cut diamond is ma-hoo-sive in a vintage style setting, which Justin is rumoured to have had a hand in designing. Cute!
Although they’ve yet to confirm their engagement (come on guys, the ring is a *bit* of a giveaway), New Year's Eve director Garry Marshall told Us Weekly that the he discusses wedding plans with Jessica 'a lot'. 'I hope it all works out - they are terrific kids,' he said. 'I love them both. I'm happy for her.'
And so are we! We’re not jealous at all. Not one bit. Nope… Oh, and we're calling them JesTin now, right?!
