Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel surprised the public when it was revealed they recently welcomed their second child. What’s more shocking is the fact the baby was delivered earlier this year.
It was really surprising because no one noticed Jessica Biel was even pregnant. The actress and husband Justin Timberlake completely hid the pregnancy for months, and it is only being revealed today.
The big reveal of Justin and Jessica’s baby
The news did not come directly from the couple. It was Lance Bass, a former fellow *NSYNC band member of Justin, who spilled the beans.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight’s Katie Krause on Sept. 25, Bass confirmed that Jessica and Justin’s family has expanded to four. He said that the baby arrived earlier this year without mentioning the exact date.
This huge revelation followed months of speculations, and the spouses were not saying anything to clarify the rumors.
“The baby is cute of course, it’s Justin and Jessica!” Bass told the magazine. When asked about the baby’s name, he said he could not share it because “Justin would kill me!”
Bass further said that the NSYNC members were among the first ones to know the baby before everyone else did. In their chat group, the band is now talking all about the newborn and babies in general.
Timberlake, 39, and Biel, 38, are already parents to 5-year-old son Silas. Reps for the couple have not commented at this time.
The media that first reported about the A-list couple’s baby’s birth
The Daily Mail claimed that it was the first media outlet to share the news of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s second child. The publication stated that it wrote about the news in July.
At that time, it was said that the actress’s mother, Kimberly, was with her daughter when her grandchild was born.
In August, Brian McKnight also confirmed that Jessica has given birth but didn’t reveal the gender of the child. There were reports that 5-year-old Silas’ new sibling is a boy.
“Having kids and having his family, I think Justin took some time to focus on those things because those things are very important, McKnight told The Hollywood Life. “I think if he’s going to do music, he’s going to make sure that that’s secure, and then he’ll bring us into his music.”
He added, “And being inspired! He just had a new baby. I think that’s going to be really inspiring for him and he’ll have some new music based on that, I’m sure.”
In any case, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have not been seen in public since March. At that time, it is believed that they have been staying in their home in Big Sky, Montana.
