Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel step out with son Silas in New York

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel enjoy a family lunch

It’s been a wild three months for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. So it’s interesting that they were photographed by a paparazzo in New York this weekend, out and about with their son Silas. It’s almost as if… someone wants to ensure that he still has that family-friendly image on lockdown, especially as he begins to promote the second Trolls movie. Hm. So weird, huh?

To recap, around Thanksgiving last year, Justin Timberlake sort of cheated with his costar Alisha Wainwright. All we had evidence of was hand-holding and thigh-rubbing, and Justin looking completely wasted as he and Alisha were out drinking at a bar in New Orleans. After denying that anything happened, Justin then reversed course and publicly apologized to Jessica Biel. In the past few months, they keep reminding of us of the incident too, like… we already forgot about it, why do THEY keep mentioning it? I actually bought the story that Jessica was quite pissed at Justin, but of course she’s sticking with him. Oh, and there was also a story about how Justin was absolutely not a douche, despite all evidence to the contrary.

So here she is, sticking with him. What is this pap stroll supposed to prove again? That they’re just fine? Because Jessica looks like she’s still kind of mad at him, or maybe she’s just mad at the paparazzo? These photos have such a vintage-PR feel to them too – it’s been a while since anyone other than Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner did such an old-school stroll to promote a movie or something.

    She is promoting “The sinner”.
    He is promoting “Trolls 2”.

    So I guess this is a somewhat win win situation for both. Though, I’m not sure the pics are speaking good for any of them, they don’t seem happy together at all.

    Btw, I think this is the first time I’ve actually seen what Silas look like.

  2. Thanks says:

    Not judging but isn’t he too old for a stroller? He’s 5 this year.

    • Scollins says:

      A safety in the city issue maybe.

    • holly hobby says:

      He’s 5 really? I was wondering how old he was. At 5 my kids would have been stinking mad if we tried to squeeze them into a stroller. They already started fighting us off at 2.

    • Eliza_ says:

      @chloe ha that was my question too. Getting my daughter into the stroller has always been a tear-fest now at 2 it’s just a straight out wrestling match. Granted I wouldn’t want her walking in the city either, so i get the stroller, but he’s so good about it. Then again 5yo are more chill in general

    • deezee says:

      I was thinking the exact same thing.

    • ShazBot says:

      THANK YOU.
      He’s the exact same age as my youngest and we haven’t even had a stroller for 2.5 years. I definitely did a double take.

    • Samanathalous says:

      Ha I’ve seen kids who look like they are about to graduate from college still in strollers.

    • liz says:

      Very typical in NYC. We use strollers the way suburbanites use their cars. My siblings gave up strollers before their kids turned 3. But they didn’t walk the way New Yorkers do – we think nothing of walking 10 blocks each way (about a half mile) just to go to the library. My siblings put their kids in the car in their garage and they got out of the car in the parking lot of wherever they were going. We walked nearly everywhere, but still had a stroller until Kiddo was almost 5 – the last one fell apart and I didn’t bother replacing it.

      Little kids (even 4 year olds) get tired at the end of the day and sometimes don’t want to walk the last six blocks home. At that age, they are too big to be carried that far, so you take the stroller – even if all it carries are the library books or the groceries.

    • Keessie says:

      Right? Wth… He’s five or almost. And no, safety comes from holding a hand and keeping an eye on them. He’s five, not three. Communication is possible at that point…

    • Dani says:

      Thanks, worry about your own kids. JFC.

  3. Sarah says:

    While looking at these pictures, all I can think about is how poor Silas shouldn’t be outside in the cold because Jessica Biel refuses to vaccinate him. Good riddance to both Jessica and Justin! Seriously.

    • Bryn says:

      Not defending her anti vax bullshit but you dont catch anything by being in the cold, nothing a vaccine is going to prevent

      • Kate says:

        I have an ongoing argument with my husband about this because he and his family always say they got sick BECAUSE a window was left open or it was too cold. I’m like – or, hear me out, you caught a virus from close contact with a sick person. Viruses don’t blow in through an open window

      • AMA1977 says:

        My husband says the same thing all the time because his mother said it to him. No, you did not get sick from being in the cold, you got sick from germs, and the best way to avoid that is to wash your hands a ton and avoid touching your face. Or sure, go put on a hoodie. Viruses can’t getcha if you’re wearing layers!!

    • minx says:

      Anti-vaxxers can go fcuk themselves. They are the worst.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        With the Coronavirus the anti-vaxxers have the PERECT opportunity to prove their theories but I won’t hold my breath expecting them to go over to China to put their money when their big mouths are.

    • Eliza_ says:

      As there’s no vaccine for this virus I’m not sure what point it would make. Even if that area had 100% vaccination rate this outbreak woulda have occurred I’m 100% provaccine and vaccine on schedule. But antivaxxers use the common cold and diseases without vaccines and say “see why is there a point, bad stuff still happened?” Because they dont understand the vaccines are for specific illnesses.

  4. holly hobby says:

    They do not look happy at all. I’m surprised they didn’t bring Silas out all bubble wrapped since he is not vaccinated (that’s most likely true since she did that big anti-vax push in Sacramento last year).

  5. Stacey says:

    I just had to look it up, Silas is 4 1/2. Isn’t that a bit old for a stroller and a blankie to go down the street?

    • Originaltessa says:

      I’ve seen pictures of him looking like a normal 4 year old running around. I think it’s most likely a safety thing. Or, worse, they want people that see the pap pics to still think of them as parents to a young baby… which they’re not. He’s going to be 5.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Having a kid in a stroller makes for a better photo op than having one running around, esp if Douche Man is papped pushing said strolling looking like a hands on father (also while looking straight at the camera).

    • Malificent says:

      I brought the stroller along when my kid was that age if we were going on a very long walk or hike. He wasn’t in the stroller the whole time, just when he got tired.

      • aang says:

        This. A stroller for a tired 5yo on a long walk is way easier than carrying them. Who knows how far they were going, or how long they planned to be out. Plus its a good way to store bags if you are out shopping without a car.

  6. ME says:

    I’ve never seen pics of their kid before.

    • Heather says:

      Me neither. I sort of had the impression that they were against having any photos of him out there. Maybe I’m wrong. If I’m not, then it means that they have decided to pull out the big guns by pap-strolling their kid.

  7. Mumbles says:

    That’s a jacket that demands attention. And yeah while it’s hard to get around the city sometimes with little feet, he does look a bit big for a stroller.

  8. TheOtherSarah says:

    Silas is almost 4 or 5, bur it’s the first time we saw his face, isn’t it? These two could not be more obvious if they tried. And I don’t even know why they try so hard, everybody who cares about gossip knows that Justin is big time cheater, and nobody cares.

    • Slh says:

      Not the first time we’ve seen Silas face. Before his hair was cut I recall seeing his face in a candid before.

  9. Nicole says:

    Why is Jessica and Justin in a hat but Silas is not? IJS

  10. Marigold says:

    I developed disc bulges that later herniated–blah blah bad back–in my pregnancy, and when my daughter was 3-5, she could walk but would often want to be picked up when she got tired. I couldn’t pick her up once she weighed more than 20 pounds, so a stroller was the best option.

    Stop judging people’s parenting. OMG. We don’t know everything, and we don’t know anything about why people make certain family choices. It’s not abusive to let a kid sit in a stroller, and it doesn’t hamper anybody’s development.

    But I guess this is Celebitchy. Ha ha. I forgot for a second. /grin . so, carry on.

    • Kittensnskittles says:

      Carry on, indeed.
      He’s way too old for that stroller, tired or not. And they look very unhappy, I agree.
