In the last couple of months, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have given a glimpse to their fans about their private life and world. Each of the couple went on to post something celebratory regarding their birthdyas, and uptalking about each other. And now, the duo has gone to offer another intimate details about their sons Silas, who is 6 years old, and Phineas who is just 11 months.
The actress, who is 39 years old, told Dax Shepard on his June 14th episode of the podcast Armchair Expert: “I'm spending a lot of time at home on Zooms in my apartment. Hanging with my baby, changing diapers, doing nap time.” It was last july when some reports pointed to the fact that Biel and Timberlake welcomed little Phineas, being the second child to the family. However, they were able to keep this a secret, and confirmed the news until January this year, thus dubbing the little kig “a secret COVID baby.”
“I had, like, a secret COVID baby. It wasn't like it was supposed to be a secret. It was just COVID happened, and then I went to Montana with my family and never left,” said the lead actress of the tv drama “7th Heaven.” Because of the pandemic, she wasn't even sure if Justin Timberlake would even be allowed in the room for Phineas' birth. However, certain hospital changes made it possible for the 40 year old singer to be present, at least for the special moment.
Jessica went on to explain to Shepard that they were fortunate because at the time, hospital restrictions just changed, and there was a moment there when nobody was allowed in the facilities at some point, and of course she started to get anxious. However, he was eventually able to make it and be with her for the magical birth of their second child. “I think if I had to be there alone, that would have been horrible. I would have been really scared.”
Undoubtedly, receiving another child to their home to make a foursome of a family, has taken them a lot of adjusments; but, apparently, they are extremely happy about being a foursome. “Someone said to me, 'Two is like having a thousand [kids],' and that's exactly how it feels like.” Biel went on to say that the balance of everything is very different and super hard.
So far, only Silas has gotten the chance to see his dad on tour; nevertheless, Jessica has high hopes that Phineas will be able to see Justin performing as well. “We want these little boys to see daddy on stage, He's not going to do it like this forever. I mean, I'm just speaking for him and I may be way off, but I think there's something about like 'I went after my dream. I'm working really hard. See this whole thing?'”
When asked about their kids' future, regarding their careers and if she would like them to be involved in show business at all, her immediate reaction would be “no”. Yet, taking a glance at their respective abilities, and talents, it seems there is no escape for them to choose a life somewhat like their parents' life. Don't matter if Biel would rather prefer to have engineer kids, than actors.
