The day's top national and international news.
In earlier interviews, Biel has talked about one day wanting to have kids. She told Gala that she’s “someone who lets things happen naturally."
"For me, getting married doesn't mean we should limit ourselves to some pre-defined idea,” she said. “Rather, it's an opportunity to explore new things in life."
Biel and Timberlake have been engaged since early January. The on-and-off couple had split in March of 2011 before reconnecting again the following September.
At the time of the couple’s engagement, Timberlake told People that Biel was “the single-handedly most significant person in my life.”
Biel told Gala that she admired Timberlake’s “ability to communicate well” and express his feelings, as well as his loyalty and honesty.
On Saturday, the couple attended an engagement cocktail party hosted by Biel’s stylist, Estee Stanley, a source told People.
Among the 100 guests who reportedly attended the party were Ellen DeGeneres, Timbaland and Amy Adams, as well as Biel’s parents, Kimberly and Jonathan.
Former N*Sync members Lance Bass and JC Chasez were also there to support Timberlake, a former member of the late 90s boy band.
