Justin Timberlake rang in his 37th birthday on Wednesday.
And his wife Jessica Biel marked the occasion with a sweet Instagram photo of the two of them snuggling in a field.
In her gushing caption, Jessica, 35, called herself Justin’s ‘OG fan girl #1,’ and praised him as a ‘hot dad’ no less than three times.

‘Here’s to a spectacular year ahead’: On Wednesday, Jessica Biel posted a gushing Instagram tribute to her husband Justin Timberlake for his 37th birthday
Jessica – who married Justin in 2012 and welcomed their son Silas in 2015 – modeled a black leather jacket and mahogany-tinted sunglasses.
Meanwhile, Justin could be seen wearing a white T-shirt sheer enough to reveal a cross tattoo on his left arm, and he accessorized with a bandanna round his neck.
‘A picture says a thousand words. And thank goodness because there aren’t enough to express ALL the aspects of my love and respect for you,’ she began the caption.
‘Here’s to a spectacular year ahead. I’m so proud of all you’ve accomplished and all that is ahead for you. plus you’re a super hot dad,’ she rhapsodized.

‘A ninja dad. A kiddie teeth brushing, Jedi sleep mind tricking, intimidating dad voice disciplining SUPER HOT DAD. I love you, you hot dad.. I’m here, right by your side, OG fan girl #1. Happy birthday, my beloved. Now go crush it this weekend at SB LII.’
On Sunday, Justin will perform in the legendary halftime slot at the Super Bowl, which this year will be held at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
When it emerged in October that Justin had got this gig, there was a bit of a controversy, given his last Super Bowl halftime appearance.
During the 2004 halftime show, he was performing onstage with Janet Jackson when a ‘wardrobe malfunction’ occurred that entered American history.

In the words of a statement from Janet’s rep at the time, via E! News: ‘Justin was supposed to pull away the rubber bustier to reveal a red lace bra. The garment collapsed and her breast was accidentally revealed.’
A rash of negative consequences followed for Janet’s career, including a Viacom blacklist of her singles and videos, plus a pulled invitation from the Grammy Awards held the next week, not to mention the loss of a biopic gig playing Lena Horne.
Justin, meanwhile, was neither blacklisted by Viacom nor uninvited from the Grammy Awards.
Though the FCC moved to fine CBS $550,000 over ‘Nipplegate,’ a legal battle ensued and the Third Circuit Court Of Appeals voided the penalty in 2011.

Some have felt it was unfair for the Super Bowl to bring back Justin and not Janet, and the hashtag #JusticeForJanet sprang up on Twitter.
The NFL have clarified she is not banned, so Justin could request that she accompany him this Super Bowl – yet not all of Janet’s defenders liked that idea.
As Wendy Williams said on her chat show in October: ‘Janet, I wouldn’t stoop. You’re a Jackson, for God’s sakes.’
This Friday, Justin will be releasing his fifth solo studio album Man Of The Woods.
