Jessica Biel seems to be moving forward and forgiving her husband despite rumors he stepped out on her with his “Palmer” co-star Alisha Wainwright. The 37-year-old actress put her pride aside to wish Justin Timberlake a happy 39th birthday on Friday. Sharing his birthday tribute to her Instagram for the world to see, Jessica Biel posted several intimate photos of their private family time at home and out of the public eye. This comes less than a month after paparazzi photos showed him getting a little too close to his co-star, but these snaps proved that they are putting the past behind them.
“Happy birthday to the most timeless man I know,” she captioned the photos. Giving her husband a compliment, the actress also wrote, “You somehow grow up without growing old,” and spoke on behalf of herself and their four-year-old son, Silas . “We love you so much.” Jessica Biel also added a red heart and birthday cake emoji.
In the first picture, Jessica Biel is seen kissing Justin Timberlake when he received an honorary doctorate degree last year. In another, the happy couple are seen walking hand in hand. This is one of the first public displays of affections the “Sinner” actress has shared of Justin Timberlake since the photos with his co-star emerged.
Last month, the “Suit & Tie” singer addressed the affair rumors head-on, apologizing for his behavior and calling it a “strong lapse in judgment.” While Justin Timberlake insisted “…let me be clear—nothing happened between me and my costar,” he stated, “I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better.” He also addressed his family in his initial statement. “This is not the example I want to set for my son. I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that,” Justin Timberlake said.
Despite the singer’s questionable actions, PEOPLE reported that Jessica Biel believed him when he stated that he remained faithful during their marriage. “He’s charming and outgoing,” an insider told the outlet at the time. “And obviously he drank too much this time, but Jessica believes he didn’t cheat on her. She will stand by him.” After the photos of Justin Timberlake and Alisha Wainwright emerged, Jesica Biel was seen without her wedding ring. Another source told PEOPLE, the duo were going to “work through this. It was good that he apologized publicly but obviously the real work he is doing is in private and hopefully this was just a bad drunken night of this type of behavior.” Seems like they’ve done just that.
