'NSYNC reunited — and the photo they took together is tearin' up our hearts

It ain't no lie ... they're back together! (For a photo, anyway.)

JC's 40th... And, if you don't know now you know...

A post shared by Justin Timberlake (@justintimberlake) on

Everyone's favorite 'NSYNC mega-studs, now a little older and, er, grizzlier than we remember them, got together Monday night to celebrate JC Chasez’s 40th birthday.

40th. Yes. Time flies when you're in a world-famous boy band.

But don't freak out too much: While Chasez isn't the first band member to turn the big 4-0 (Chris Kirkpatrick is 44), the rest of the bunch — Joey Fatone, Lance Bass and, of course, Justin Timberlake — are all in their 30s. Phew. (Still doesn't change Timberlake's eligibility status, but hey. A girl can dream.)

It was Timberlake, 35, who took to Instagram to share a fun snap of the group, with the caption: “JC’s 40th… And, if you don’t know now you know…”

Now if only we could figure out a way to rewind time, slip into Instagram photos and persuade one of these guys to marry us ... I mean ... what? Sorry.

The whole thing is doubly exciting when you consider that unlike its arch-nemesis counterpart, Backstreet Boys, 'NSYNC hasn't done the "reunion" thing too often. Here's hoping they take a hint from the uber-excited commenters on JT's 'gram and make it happen on the reg from now on.
