NEW YORK - Heartthrob couple Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are expecting their first child, Timberlake's former bandmate says.
Joey Fatone, who performed with Timberlake in the boy band 'NSync, confirmed Biel's long-rumored pregnancy in an interview to be released Wednesday.
"He told me a while ago, and I kept my mouth shut," Fatone told In Touch Weekly.
"Jessica is awesome, and Justin is a kid at heart," he was quoted as telling the magazine.
Timberlake, 33, made his start as a child television star before joining 'NSync.
He more recently has become one of the music industry's most popular solo singers and has starred in movies including the Facebook-themed drama "The Social Network."
Timberlake in 2012 married Biel, 32, who has found success both on television and in film.
