Did Joey Fatone mistakenly confirm those baby rumors that have been circling Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel?

According to PEOPLE, Joey was at the Disney on Ice presents Let's Celebrate! event in Los Angeles yesterday (Dec. 11), and he talked about the possibility of Justin's impending fatherhood, saying: "I think he's going to be a great dad."

The reason he thinks so? Justin used to look after his younger stepbrother, Stephen, so Joey was able to see him act as a parent, firsthand. He said Justin really "took him under his wing." Aww! Joey couldn't stop gushing about Justin, saying, "He's always been great with kids in general. He's going to be great. I think he'll be very hands-on."

It's important to note that neither Justin nor Jessica have confirmed that they're expecting a child, though rumors of Jessica's pregnancy have been swirling for a while. So Joey may just be talking about the distant possibility of Justin as a father. Or perhaps he let the whole thing slip! We won't know until we get an official confirmation from either Jessica or Justin, but we're content with knowing that at least Joey's on board!

What do you guys think? Did Joey totally spill the beans? Or was he just commenting on Justin's parenting skills? Let us know!
