Although there have been multiple reports and confirmations from relatives of Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s engagement, the notoriously private couple have yet to really speak out about their upcoming nuptials — until now.
Biel recently opened up about her life with Timberlake during an interview with French magazine Gala — the English translation of which was provided by People — and she admitted that she doesn’t expect married life to be any different.
“To me, nothing will really change, because I’m almost never home,” Biel said. “But when I am home, I enjoy cooking. I especially love making cupcakes,” she added, then admitted her attempts to get creative with recipes can be “a total disaster” but that she’s had a pleasant surprise with a recent batch of zucchini fritters.
“I don’t think our marriage will change anything,” Biel said. “[But] it will be a challenge finding a balance between my private life, family and work, and I’m ready.”
The “Total Recall” actress went on to say that she doesn’t have immediate plans to settle down and have children but welcomes the natural progression of things.
“[I’m] someone who lets things happen naturally,” she said. “For me, getting married doesn’t mean we should limit ourselves to some pre-defined idea. Rather, it’s an opportunity to explore new things in life.”
Speaking to the top three things she values most about her future husband, Biel gushed about Timberlake’s personality and strong sense of character.
“[His] ability to communicate well … to be able to express his feelings. Then loyalty. And, finally, honesty.”
The couple have not made their wedding details or date public, but according to reports, they’re planning a big celebration sometime this summer.
