“Yes, Justin is engaged,” Bomar confirmed to Radar, noting that she found out on Christmas Day via a phone call from Timberlake. “Jessica is a very sweet girl, she’s upright and everything and we love her.”

Us Weekly had reported that Timberlake and Biel got engaged in late December while vacationing in Wyoming. But Bomar said the two were actually in Montana. A People magazine source corroborated this claim, adding that Timberlake gave Biel a “custom-designed” ring.

Bomar is no stranger to giving quotes about her famous grandson’s love life that he, most likely, does not appreciate.

Back in 2009, when the couple were going through a rumored “off” period, Bomar told Closer magazine (via NY Daily News), “Jessica was keen to marry, but Justin isn’t ready. ... As far as we’re concerned, he’s always been single.”

She added, “The girlfriends come and go, but we believe nothing has ever been serious.”

What a difference a few years make.
