Megastar Justin Timberlake is tying the knot with actress Jessica Biel after they got engaged during the Christmas break.
The India Times reported that the couple were separated for three months before they got back together and overall have dated on and off for four years.
"Justin knows how much she loves snowboarding and the mountains, so it was the perfect place. This was the basis for getting back together. When they reunited, they had a conversation about taking the next step," a source close to the couple said.
Today Timberlake's grandmother, Sadie Bomar, told Radar Online she approved of the engagement.
"Yes, Justin is engaged," she told Radar Online.
"Jessica is a very sweet girl, she's upright and everything and we love her," Bomar continued. "She's a wonderful campaigner for the environment and Justin is too, a fine young man. Jessica will be a lovely member of the family."
The grandmother said the couple was still deciding between wedding locations and was not sure if it would take place in Memphis or Colorado.
"It's all very new they haven't made any plans yet," said Bomar. Justin, his mom and dad and Jessica have all been in Montana all Christmas and New Year, that's when he proposed. Justin Timberlake reportedly rang on Christmas Day to tell his grandmother about the engagement.
"You know Justin he's a very laid back he was excited but he don't make a big episode out of anything. It just seemed like the right time for him I guess," Bomar added.
A drawn attraction was part of "The basis for getting back together. When they reunited, they had a conversation about taking the next step," a source told US magazine.
A source also said Justin "knew it was the right time to propose."
