After celebrating her tenth wedding ceremony anniversary to Justin Timberlake on Oct. 19, Jessica Biel says balancing work, two children, and a wedding is a full-time job. Throughout an interview on “Today With Hoda and Jenna” with hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager, Biel defined that “you have to keep working hard to make [your marriage] fresh.” The couple — who dressed up because the “Home Alone” antagonists for Halloween — celebrated their romance by secretly renewing their vows throughout a PDA-filled journey to Italy over the summer time.

“It was very intimate. It was very small,” Biel instructed Kotb and Hager on Nov. 15. “[We had] a couple of our friends, and we literally, barely put this thing together. We almost canceled it. We thought, ‘Oh, this is silly. Are we going to feel goofy doing this?’ And, actually, it was so moving. I felt like, ‘Wow, we’re going to keep doing this. Look at us.'”


“You have to go on date nights. You have to take that time for yourself.”

Since they first started relationship in 2007, Biel and Timberlake have cut up up, gotten again collectively, gotten married, and welcomed two kids: their sons, Silas and Phineas. Whereas Biel admits that being a mother is not all the time the sexiest job on this planet, she provides that elevating kids collectively has pushed her and Timberlake to prioritize their relationship in new methods.

“[Being a mom] is probably the number one most unsexy job in the world, for the most part. It’s the best job, most days, and then it can be such a challenging job,” she mentioned. “But I think it is important to — you have to go on date nights. You have to take that time for yourself. It’s so hard. I’m trying to take my own advice. I’m not good at it, and I’m still working on finding that balance in my life . . . Justin always says, ‘We cannot stop dating, we have to keep dating,’ and he’s right.”

Discovering that stability is not simple, however Biel provides that, after 10 years of marriage to Timberlake, she’s grateful for the protection and sense of journey that their marriage offers her. “It feels so, I don’t know, a combination of incredibly safe, and deep understanding of another person,” Biel mentioned. “But then also just, I guess, the safety to adventure again and sort of be curious about the world again as a couple and as individuals.”
