Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake welcome baby number two in secret
The cat is out of the bag!
After unconfirmed reports that Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel welcomed baby number two in secret earlier in July, singer-songwriter Brian McKnight has confirmed that Timberlake and Biel are now a party of four.
Speaking to Hollywood Life on July 31, the ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ hitmaker let slip that Timberlake, 39, “had a new baby” during an interview that was supposed to be about his own recent work.
“I think that’s going to be really inspiring for him and he’ll have some new music based on that, I’m sure,” revealed McKnight while speaking about the Cry Me a River’ singer.
Quarantining at their property in Big Sky, Montana, the 38-year-old Sinner star has not posted any full length photos of herself since March leading many to speculate about her pregnancy. Neither the ‘Suit and Tie’ hitmaker or the 7th Heaven star have commented publicly on the news at the time of writing.
While the sex and name of the baby are still unknown, the couple’s happy news comes after the singer was spotted getting cosy with his co-star Alisha Wainwright during a night on the town in New Orleans, Louisiana late last year.
Shortly after, Timberlake issued a public apology for his actions, calling the incident “a strong lapse in judgement” while acknowledging that he “should have known better.”
“This is not the example I want to set for my son. I apologise to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that.”
Back in 2018, the Super Bowl performer admitted that he couldn’t wait to have more children with Biel with whom he already shares a five-year-old son, Silas.
“I want to have as many kids as we can, if I’m being honest,” told Beats 1‘s Zane Lowe. “I’ve never felt more inept my life. You wake up and all of a sudden there’s this human being you’re responsible for.”
He continued, “Everybody tells you that your life is going to change and you’re like, ‘Whatever, I got it.'”
“My wife and I — when we have a night off and we get into bed and we sit down and watch a movie or something, we’re like, ‘What did we do before this? Did we go out to dinner? Were we at a bar? What did we do before this?'”
“I feel like the success of parenthood is feeling like I failed all day today, but I get to wake up tomorrow and do it again … and hopefully they turn out to be a good human being.”
Timberlake and Biel wed in 2012.
