And it's incredible...

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake make up one of Hollywood's golden couples, celebrating their 10-year anniversary this year. They married in 2012 and welcomed their first child together, Silas, in April 2015.

According to Jessica's 7th Heaven co-star Beverley Mitchell, however, Jessica wasn't always a Justin fan, supposedly making fun of Beverley back in the day for being friends with him and his NSYNC bandmates.

‘She used to make fun of me because I’d been friends with like all the guys from NSYNC years before,' Beverley explained. 'She used to literally like give me so much crap!’

Beverley went on to explain to Access Hollywood Live that she was there the first time that Justin and Jessica met, being friends with both of them.

‘I was there like the moment the love connection happened. I was like, OK, this is happening’, she explained. ‘It was at the Golden Globes. It was so cute because they were like — it’s that moment like I like you, I think you like me. It was very, very sweet. They were definitely flirting. They were really cute.’

Ten years later, the couple certainly seems to be going from strength to strength, with Justin never avoiding an opportunity to talk about how much he loves his wife.

'Every once in a while I can catch a glimpse of her when she doesn't see me looking,' he explained to Ellen DeGeneres back in 2013. 'I have this moment where I'm like, "if you only make bad decisions for the rest of your life, you made one really good decision."'

Just last month, Justin gave us all husband goals yet again, throwing Jessica a surprise roller-skating party for her 35th birthday and uploading sweet snaps of her to his Instagram.

‘You make me laugh. You make me smile. You make me LOVE. You make me want to be BETTER. Speaking of it, it doesn’t get any BETTER than you… Now, I know for sure that it’s BETTER to be lucky than good. Ask me who the luckiest guy in the world is and I will tell you that you are looking at him. Happy Birthday, my heart. – J’
