Justin Timberlake is now officially a daddy to a baby boy named Silas.
Justin Timberlake’s wife, and actress, Jessica Biel gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Silas Randall Timberlake. The representatives of both told PEOPLE in an exclusive interview.
The name of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s baby, Silas, was derived from the former’s maternal grandfather’s middle name who passed away in 2012. Meanwhile, the baby’s name Randall was taken from Justin’s own middle name.
Both Justin and Jessica had kept the news of the pregnancy under wraps, until the singer/songwriter’s birthday in January, when he officially confirmed the news that they were soon going to have a baby boy.
However, before Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel made the news of pregnancy public, Justin’s pal Joey Fatone seemed to have confirmed the rumors. This was after he said, “I think he’s going to be a great dad…He’s always been great with kids in general. He’s going to be great. I think he’ll be very hands-on,” reported E! News.
According to the representatives of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, the baby and the mother are both doing fine. Meanwhile, Justin is “ecstatic” about his son, the reps added. Additional details about the news have not been disclosed at this time.
The hashtags on Justin’s post also indicated that the two have been guessing the sex of their baby. Both Justin and Jessica opted to keep the surprise until she delivered the baby.
Prior giving birth, Jessica also celebrated her 33rd birthday where Justin showered her his love by making a post on social media platform Instagram. Timberlake wrote, “Happy Bday to the sweetest, most GORGEOUS, goofiest, most BAD-ASS chick I know. You make me smile ’til it hurts. I love you like crazy.”
Meanwhile, Timberlake during the iHeartRadio Music Awards on March 29 said, “I can’t wait to see our greatest creation yet,” he said. “Daddy’s heading home right now to innovate by learning how to change a poopy diaper and get my swaddle on!”
Biel told E! News on Saturday that she has given birth to a healthy baby boy. However, the actress did not disclose the exact date of the delivery.
