Justin Timberlake and his wife, actress Jessica Biel, welcomed their first baby together into the world. Though the happy couple have not released many details yet about the birth of their first baby, several sources, like Us Magazine and Entertainment Weekly, have confirmed that they have a son, and that his name is Silas Randall Timberlake.
According to a Facebook post written by Justin Timberlake’s mother, Lynn, the baby is named after her father and her son. Lynn wrote “Life is beautiful and we couldn’t be happier!” Timberlake and 7th Heaven star, Jessica Biel, had been dating for five years before they got married in Italy in October 2012.
It was just this past November 2014 that Us Magazine broke the news that Justin Timberlake, 34, and Biel, 33, were expecting their first baby together. Then, two months later in January, on his 34th birthday, Justin Timberlake posted to his Instagram account a photo of himself kissing his wife, Jessica Biel’s, bare pregnant belly. Justin captioned the photo with the words that the baby his wife was expecting was “the GREATEST GIFT EVER.”
Throughout Jessica Biel’s pregnancy, the couple have been staying busy and Justin Timberlake has continued to work and tour. For example, they celebrated their two-year anniversary together, and in February, Justin Timberlake visited Biel while she was on the set in New Orleans filming her upcoming flick, The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Beil have an obvious love and affection for each other, and Timberlake has moments when he catches glimpses of her and he thinks that marrying her was one of the best decisions he has ever made. According to Timberlake in an interview he gave to Entertainment Weekly, in those moments he thinks to himself “If you never make a good decision…if you only make bad decisions for the rest of your life. You made one really good decision.”
That decision that Justin Timberlake made led to Jessica Biel’s accepting his proposal and eventually led to her giving birth to the couple’s first baby together. Dubbed a “Timberbaby” by many media sources, in lieu of anybody knowing the sex of the impending arrival, the birth of the couple’s baby has been much-anticipated by not only the Suit & Tie singer and Biel, but also by their fans all around the world.
At the iHeartRadio Music Awards on March 29, Justin Timberlake stated that he could not wait to see “our greatest creation yet.” He said that he was going home to learn “how to change a poopy diaper and get my swaddle on!” If he was serious about taking the approach that he should help out by sometimes changing the baby’s diapers, he will, undoubtedly, get many chances to demonstrate his devotion by changing the Timberbaby’s diapers in the comings days, weeks, and months ahead.
The name that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have chosen for their son, Silas, comes from the name of the Roman god of trees and woods, Syvanus, according to many Internet baby-name sites. It is a family name, but it is also fitting, in that his last name is wood-related, being “Timberlake.”
It is official: Justin Timberlake is now a dad, as he and his wife, Jessica Biel, have welcomed their first baby into the world together. Now, their baby will no longer have to be given some name to refer to it, like “Timberbaby,” by media sources. Now, articles about Justin, Jessica, and their son can use the actual name of the baby, Silas Randall Timberlake. Congrats to the happy couple on the arrival of their son, Silas!
