Husbands take note, this is how you thank your wife!

Justin Timberlake was more than grateful to accept the iHeartRadio Innovator Award Sunday night in Los Angeles. But all of his success couldn't be possible without the one and only Jessica Biel.

"You can't have innovation without creation," he explained after receiving his award from Tom Ford. "I want to thank my best friend, my favorite collaborator, my wife Jessica at home."

He added, "Honey I can't wait to see our greatest creation yet. Don't worry, daddy's heading home right now to innovate by learning how to change a poopy diaper and get my swaddle on."

The couple is expecting their first child in the next couple of weeks.

Babies aside, Timberlake couldn't help but inspire viewers at home with his touching words. After getting praised by Timbaland, Taylor Swift , Andy Samberg, Pharrell Williams and other A-list stars in a pre-taped segment, the "Suit and Tie" crooner was almost moved to tears.

"Everyone who was in that piece. I love you too," he shared while trying to keep it together. "Growing up in school, nobody called me close to an innovator. They called me different. They called me weird. They called me a couple other words I can't say on TV."

He continued, "If you're a young person—like I used to be—and you're at home and you're being called weird or different, I'm here to tell you your critics do not count. Their words will fade. You won't."

Congratulations Timberlake on a well-deserved award!
