Justin Timberlake wished wife Jessica Biel a happy 39th birthday on Wednesday (March 3), calling her his “favorite person in the world.” The parents of two boys, who’ve been married since 2017, are smiling for the camera as JT plants a kiss on the actress’ cheek in an Instagram post.
“Happy Birthday to my favorite person in the world… the strongest, funniest, best, brightest and most beautiful mom/partner/BOSS there is. I’m lucky to learn from you and laugh with you and celebrate you every day, But, today we do it with !!!!,” Timberlake captioned the post, which also includes a slo-mo video of Biel in a gauzy white cover-up on a boat, the couple arm-in-arm backstage and jumping for joy on a beach, as well as a snap of Biel laughing after falling into some bushes.
“Here’s to more slow-mos in the wind, jumping into bushes to save our kid’s toys, and timing out jump pics perfectly,” he added. “I ❤️ U with all that I know.”
The birthday post from Timberlake was his first public statement since Feb. 12, when the singer issued an apology to former girlfriend Britney Spears and 2004 Super Bowl halftime partner Janet Jackson for “the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right.”
The mea culpa came after the airing of the documentary Framing Britney Spears, in which the then-21-year-old JT is depicted as acting like a cad in the wake of the couple’s much-publicized split, making jokes about their sex life in several interviews, and casting a Spears look-alike in the video for his breakup anthem “Cry Me a River.”
