Shortly after the couple said their I Dos in October of last year, we heard that Jessica Biel was planning to take the last name of her husband Justin Timberlake. Now, 11 months after the fact, we learn that Jessica has legally changed her last name to Timberlake … even tho she will still professionally be known as Jessica Biel. Honestly, I am much more impressed when women keep their last names both privately and professionally because why should a woman change her identity to marry a man but … that’s just my personal belief. In any event, according to Life & Style magazine, the name change is a done deal so … there you have it!
Eleven months after marrying Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel has officially taken her man’s last name. “It’s all official!” a source tells Life & Style. “The paperwork is done and she’s now legally Jessica Timberlake.” An insider close to the star says she’ll still be known professionally as Jessica Biel. A week after their Oct. 19, 2012, nuptials, the actress revealed she had plans to trade in Biel for Timberlake. “It’s weird because it’s feels like almost nothing has changed,” she’s said about married life. “But yet something that you really can’t describe — or something that isn’t really tangible — has changed.”
Wouldn’t it have been amazing if Justin changed his last name to Biel? I mean, he could’ve remained Justin Timberlake professionally but … alas, I guess it wasn’t meant to be. So in her personal life, Jessica will be a Timberlake and in her professional life she will remain a Biel … therefore, I’ll just refer to her as Jessica Biel-Timberlake to cover all the bases. Now that Jessica and Justin have the same last name, I guess the way is paved for the couple to bring forth a baby Timberlake into the world at some point. Might there be a Bump Watch in the near future?
