Could there be a little Timberlake on the way? Actress Jessica Biel was spotted last week sporting what appeared to be a baby bump while vacationing in Sydney, Australia. Radar Online reports that the former “7th Heaven” star was strolling with a pal on Sydney’s Bondi Beach when a photographer snapped her photo. The child would be the first for Biel and musician/actor Justin Timberlake, who will celebrate their two-year wedding anniversary on Oct. 19.
The pregnancy rumors come just one month after Timberlake, 33, was accused of stepping out on Biel, 32, with one of his employees, 20/20 tour backup dancer Zenya Bashford. Star magazine reported that the “Suit & Tie” singer was seen “rubbing and caressing” Bashford during a club outing in Paris in September.
“It was definitely more than friendly,” an eyewitness of their alleged tryst told the magazine. “They were dancing in a way that no married man should ever dance with someone who isn’t his wife.”
Biel was also rumored to be pregnant in November 2013, when she failed to appear alongside Timberlake at the American Music Awards. When Timberlake posed solo on the AMA’s red carpet, Twitter ignited with speculation that Biel didn't attend because she was pregnant. The actress later addressed the pregnancy rumors, saying, “I’m watching from home tonight. Calm down, Internet.”
Following fan's speculation that Biel was pregnant, OK! magazine reported that the couple was feuding and possibly heading for a divorce over their plans to start a family. The tabloid said that while Biel was onboard to have a baby, Timberlake was more interested in his career.
“Before they wed, Justin promised Jessica they’d try for a baby but then he decided to put his energy into touring instead,” an insider told the tabloid.
Biel previously hasn’t been shy about sharing her plans to start a family with the former 'N Sync singer. In 2012, she told InStyle magazine (via Pop Sugar) that she planned to raise her children away from Hollywood’s limelight, preferably in her home state of Colorado.
“I would like those future little people to have the experience I had, in some capacity. It was fun,” she said.
