Jessica Biel to open restaurant after giving birth

JESSICA Biel is set to open her child-friendly restaurant in May.

The 'Total Recall' actress, who is rumoured to be five months pregnant with her first child with husband Justin Timberlake, is reportedly planning to launch her new eatery, Au Fudge, in Los Angeles shortly after she gives birth this spring.

The 32-year-old star first revealed her business plans in February 2014 but it took some time for her to get them off the ground, and source explained: "They've run into the usual snags and delays any new restaurant owner has, but it looks like they're on track now."

The insider told PEOPLE.com that the brunette beauty's organic restaurant and bakery, which will be located on Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood, is now scheduled to open "in early to mid-May."

Jessica also confirmed the doors will open soon by posting a photograph of her permit approval on Instagram, with the caption: "Be ready to get #fudged soon!!! Au Fudge finally got it's permits!! 4/5 months we will be in business cross fingers!!!! (sic)"

The former 'Seventh Heaven' star and Justin have yet to officially confirm they're expecting a baby, but a source previously claimed they were "worried" about sharing the news.

The insider said: "They've been trying for a while to get pregnant, there've been some issues so that's probably part of it too, they don't want to announce it until it's further along and they're out of the woods for a miscarriage."
