Did Joey Fatone confirm Jessica Biel-Justin Timberlake baby news?

Did Joey Fatone just confirm that Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are having a baby?

Joey Fatone apparently isn't quite in sync with Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel when it comes to their baby business: The baritone seems to have confirmed that his former bandmate and his actress wife are expecting. 

"He told me a while ago, and I kept my mouth shut," Fatone told In Touch. "But now I can talk about it!"

Hmmm. Can, sure. But should? Guess we'll see who's invited to the baby shower -- and who isn't.

At any rate, Fatone told the mag that Timberlake and Biel, who married in October 2012, were terrific people who would have fun being parents.

Unconfirmed reports that the two had a baby on the way popped up in early November. The 32-year-old "7th Heaven" actress was supposedly more than three months pregnant at the time, according to Radar Online.

"Right now they are just enjoying the news for themselves," a source told Us Weekly at the time.
