Keeping it low-key. Jessica Biel chose to celebrate her 38th birthday “at home” to avoid being “photographed” following husband Justin Timberlake’s PDA scandal, a source tells In Touch exclusively.

“Jessica didn’t want Justin to go all out at some fancy restaurant,” the source notes. “She wanted to stay at home with her two men, Justin and Silas. She wanted to eat a simple meal and then dig into some birthday cake.” The insider also teased Justin might have a surprise in store for his beloved. “Now, Justin might have something special planned for her big day, on March 3rd, but if he does he’s keeping that on the down-low.”

In November, Justin was photographed holding hands with his costar Alisha Wainwright during a night of drinking while taking a break from filming their upcoming movie, Palmer, in New Orleans. The incident led to a rift between Justin and Jessica, and the insider revealed they’re still working on rebuilding trust in their relationship. “Justin knows he’s still in a crucial space with repairing his wife’s confidence in him,” the source says. “That’s why Jessica’s birthday has to be special, and by special that means giving her exactly what she wanted.”

It looks like Justin, 39, delivered on his wife’s birthday wishes. Jessica took to Instagram to share some photos from the thoughtful evening her man put together. “Celebrating my birthday in style … and by that I mean, in pajamas,” she captioned the pictures of Justin holding a huge birthday cake. “I made Justin PROMISE not to sing Happy Birthday to me, so he improvised. Sorry you can’t hear it, but I’m still laughing,” she added. “Thank you, you wonderful human, for really listening to me, and for throwing my kind [of] party.”

In the cheery photos, it appeared like all was forgiven in the Timberlake-Biel house. Ever since the PDA scandal, Justin is doing all he can to make it up to Jessica. The singer publicly apologized to his wife on Instagram for “putting [her] through such an embarrassing situation.” He promised to be “the best husband and father [he] can be.” It looks like he is holding up his end of the bargain.
