Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have strived to keep their relationship as private as possible, but in a new interview with French magazine Gala, Biel opens up about her fiance and their upcoming nuptials.

"I don't think our marriage will change anything," the 30-year-old actress told the magazine. "It will be a challenge finding a balance between my private life, family and work, and I'm ready."

But just because she's ready for marriage, don't expect the famous couple to start a family right away. Biel told the magazine she's someone who "lets things happen naturally" but may not be ready to take on the role of motherhood so quickly.

"For me, getting married doesn't mean we should limit ourselves to some predefined idea. Rather, it's an opportunity to explore new things in life, " says Biel.

Though the couple became engaged in January, they did their best to downplay the good news, and waited until this past weekend to celebrate with a cocktail party.

While the couple may prefer to keep things private, Biel opened up to the magazine about exactly what attracts her to Timberlake.

"The ability to communicate well ... to be able to express his feelings. Then, loyalty. And, finally, honesty," she explained.
