Dad-to-be Justin Timberlake melted a million hearts as showed his soft side in a teary tribute to his pregnant wife Jessica Biel at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday. The 34-year-old singer was accepting the Innovator award at the Shrine Auditorium in LA when he made the sweet speech about his wife Jessica, 33.
“I said I wouldn’t cry,” he joked before getting emotional.
“You can’t have innovation without creation, so finally, I want to thank my best friend, my favourite collaborator — my wife, Jessica, at home, who’s watching,” he said. “Honey, I can’t wait to see our greatest creation yet. Don’t worry, Daddy’s heading home right now to innovate by learning how to change a poopy diaper and get my swaddle on.”
After weeks of pregnancy rumours, Justin announced that he and Jessica are expecting a baby with a picture of himself kissing her bump on Instagram in January. “Thank you EVERYONE for the Bday wishes!” he commented. “This year, I’m getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN’T WAIT. #BoyOrGirl #YouNeverKnow #WeDontEvenKnow #WeAreTakingBets.”
Justin and Jessica married at a private ceremony in Italy in 2012, and this will be their 1st child.
