We hope that you have got your waterproof mascara on because things are about to get emotional thanks to Justin Timberlake and his super gushy iHeartRadio award acceptance speech.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you, okay?
The 34-year-old, who was introduced to the stage by fashion designer Tom Ford, was visibly choked up to be honoured with the show’s ‘Innovator Award’ for his work in music, film, and television last night, and he was sure not to forget his upcoming role of a father in his lengthy acceptance speech.
Looking pretty ruddy beautiful, the singer had a whole lot of people to thank and tales to tell as he started reminiscing about his school days, teenage years, and of course the token “thanks mum” acknowledgement.
Justin then went on to urge his young fans to embrace the things that made them different and admitted to be getting a little teary-eyed as he spoke about being “hungry and foolish” before quoting US President Theodore Roosevelt in a touching tribute to the “weird” teens of the world.
As if all of that wasn’t cutesy and adorable enough, the star then thanked his wife of three years, Jessica Biel, who is currently pregnant with their first child.
Addressing the room, Justin gushed: “Lastly, you can’t have innovation without creation, so finally I want to thank my best friend, my favourite collaborator – my wife, Jessica, who’s at home watching.
“Honey, I can’t wait to see our greatest creation yet.
“Don’t worry, Daddy’s headed home right now to innovate by learning how to change a poopy diaper and get my swaddle on.”
And that is pretty much exactly when our hearts exploded with feels.
At least we know for sure that Justin is doing everything that he can to prepare for impending fatherhood, eh?
Earlier in the night the former N*Sync legend proved himself to be a secure member of none other than Taylor Swift‘s ever-growing list of BFFs after he absolutely freaked the heck out for her when she won the award for ‘Best Lyrics’.
Jumping up and down in the picture of joy, Justin couldn’t have looked more pleased for our ultimate girlcrush if he tried, leaving us pretty confident in saying that we officially fancy Justin Trousersnake more than ever before.
