Feels like meeting a new neighbor. Meet Mrs. Timberlake from next door.
She’s really into the marriage thing. Now that she’s married to Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel, 30, is shedding her maiden last name and will now be known legally as Jessica Timberlake. She’s still keeping her professional name, but she will be using her new husband’s last name – for real life and for the records.
Jessica tells People:
“My professional name will still be the same, but for life, yes, I think it sounds great. I think I really won the jackpot of names.”
And we believe she didn’t only win a jackpot in terms of names!
“It’s hard to find that one person in the world. Once you find that person, go for it. That kind of commitment is very special.”
Though hubby and wifey are both popular figures in the Hollywood scene, the 7th Heaven actress is taking the traditional route in the wife-naming business.
The newlyweds were married last week in an intimate ceremony in romantic Southern Italy. They were surrounded by their closest family members and friends. The couple sold their exclusive wedding photos, which every Hollywood reporter was dying to get a piece of, to People magazine for $300, 000.
Though she wants to keep it old-fashioned in terms of names, Jessica Biel, uhm Timberlake in real life, sidelined wedding tradition by wearing a strapless pink gown she called “whimsical and dramatic.” It was made by close friend and designer, Giambattista Valli.
Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Timberlake! We hope the next time you’ll be talking names, it’ll be about picking a boy or girl’s name for your baby!
