There has been tons of speculation about the real reason Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel, and a multitude of their friends had gathered in Southern Italy this past week. And it turns out the marriage rumors are true!

In a statement released to People today, the new couple gushed "It's great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends."

The couple said "I Do" at the Borgo Egnazia resort in the southern Italian city of Pugliam with all their friends and family, including celebs like Andy Samberg, Timbaland, Chris Kirkpatrick, and Jessica's 7th Heaven pal Beverly Mitchell.

It has been a long road to the altar for these two lovebirds, who have been dating on and off for around five years. But after a brief three-month split in 2011, the two reunited and seemed stronger than ever.

Exclusive pictures of the wedding, including what this stylish couple wore to walk down the aisle, will be available in next week's People. There is no doubt we will be reading that issue with a box of tissues.

We can only imagine what song the two chose as their first dance, or if Justin serenaded her at the reception. Either way, we know we will be saying "Bye Bye Bye" to our childhood dreams of being THE Mrs. Timberlake. But as sad as we are, we have to ask that someone check on Britney Spears STAT!
