Jessica Biel may have only just started to flash her engagement ring around town, but that doesn't mean the 31-year-old actress has kept her excitement about becoming Mrs. Justin Timberlake quiet.
One of Biel's closest confidantes has been none other than her New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day film director Garry Marshall, who told Us Weekly he's spoken at length with Biel about her happy news.
"We talk about it a lot. I hope it all works out -- they are terrific kids," Marshall told Us at Sunday's Night of 100 Stars Gala in Beverly Hills, Calif. of Biel and Timberlake. "I love them both. I'm happy for her."
Getting engaged during a snowboarding trip in the Jackson, Wyoming mountains in December 2011, Biel and Timberlake plan to tie the knot next summer.
"Monique Lhuillier is her No. 1 choice for the dress," the insider hints to Us of the beloved designer, whose dresses have been worn by such A-list brides as Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Alba, Vanessa Minnillo and Shannen Doherty.
A Timberlake source confirms that the singer/actor has "never been happier" with the New Year's Eve actress. "He knew it was the right time to propose."
