Jessica Biel had a second child in 2020, and it was only confirmed on Monday! The confirmation came from Jessica’s husband, Justin Timberlake, when he made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, during an interview set to air on Monday.
Before the actual confirmation, there were already rumors going around in July 2020 that Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake had celebrated another kid's birth. The couple had managed to keep the second pregnancy quite a secret when they were in Montana with their 5-year-old son, Silas, amid the CODIV-19 pandemic.
Jessica and Justin even avoided full-body shots in any of the pictures shared on their social media handles during the time when Jessica was pregnant. After the confirmation, Justin also revealed that Ellen Degeneres was the first to learn about their second pregnancy outside of their immediate family.
“I think we were FaceTiming, and you said ‘Hey, you want to know a secret?’ and then Jessica walked in, and you put your hand on her stomach. You were like, ‘We’re having another baby!’” - Ellen Degeneres
When Ellen asked Justin to share “vaguely his name and vaguely how old he is,” Justin did not hesitate to reveal that their second baby’s name was Phineas.
“He’s awesome and so cute. Nobody’s sleeping. But we’re thrilled. We’re thrilled and couldn’t be happier. Very grateful.” - Justin Timberlake
The 39-year-old singer also mentioned that his son Silas is “super excited” about being an older brother. “Right now, he’s very much liking it,” Justin remarked. “Phin can’t walk yet or chase him down, so we’ll see what happens.”
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s Relationship
Jessica Biel has been married to Justin Timberlake for more than eight years now. They started dating in January 2007 and got engaged in December 2011, following several ups and downs in their relationship - they had even broken up in March 2011 on mutual terms but got back together soon.
The couple exchanged their vows on October 19, 2012, at the Borgo Egnazia resort in France, Italy. A little over two years after getting married, they welcomed their first baby, a son named Silas Randall Timberlake, in April 2015. Now, they are happy parents of two after the arrival of Phineas.
