Justin Timberlake dedicates wedding song to Jessica Biel on anniversary

By Meaghan Wray

Justin Timberlake has a lot to sing about! The GRAMMY winner and actress wife Jessica Biel celebrated their five-year anniversary on Oct 19 and as a special surprise, the singer shared an emotional rendition of their wedding song – “A Song for You” by Donny Hathaway – on his social media channels.

The video, filmed in black and white, is captioned with a heartwarming message from the 36-year-old. “#TBT to a late night freestyle session on a break in the studio – YES I’ve been back in the studio cooking! But, today is even more special for me because five years ago, on this day, I became the luckiest man in the world when I exchanged vows with my best friend. This song was our first dance.”

Justin continued: “To my beautiful Jessica Biel: You have taught me so much about what a true love means. I can’t put into words what these last five years have meant to me, so… ‘Listen to the melody ‘cause my love is in there hiding…’”

The feeling is mutual for Jessica. The actress wrote on her own Instagram post, "My tender heart is yours, now until forever."

Back in July, the 35-year-old revealed to Marie Claire the secret to their happy marriage.

“We have similar values; we believe in loyalty, honesty. We like to have fun. We like a lot of the same things,” she spilled, adding that she and her husband bond over their shared drive to succeed in their careers. “In the business, we’re all very career-oriented, and you have to be a little selfish. I understand that about my peers—about being focused and driven—and if you can find that in someone who shares the same values as you, it’s like: Score!”

The couple said "I do" in Italy on Oct 19 2012.

Three years after their 2012 wedding in Italy, Justin and Jessica became first-time parents on the arrival of their son Silas. The actress told the magazine that her life has never been the same.

“You think you’re a selfless person, and then you realize you’re not. These little people come around, and they require so much, and your schedule is really not your own, nor is it important anymore, and it’s very clear that it’s your life now revolving around this dude,” she said.
