Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake have welcomed their second child, a baby boy

Nominated for BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A LIMITED SERIES OR A MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION for her role in "The Sinner," actress Jessica Biel and husband Justin Timberlake attend the 75th Annual Golden Globes Awards at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA on Sunday, January 7, 2018.

I had to look through our archives quite a bit, because I blanked out on huge chunks of Jessica Biel’s first pregnancy. Biel got pregnant for the first time in 2014, and she and husband Justin Timberlake played games for months about whether or not they were expecting. Then in February 2015, Justin confirmed Jessica’s pregnancy… with an Instagram photo where he cropped her head out of the picture. It was just Jessica’s bump and his face. Because the man managed to make his wife’s pregnancy all about himself. When they went on their babymoon, it was just a trip so he could go skiing (Jessica, already heavily pregnant, did not join him on the slopes). So… at least we weren’t regaled with similar stories this time around. It looks like Justin and Jessica managed to keep their second pregnancy completely quiet. Jessica apparently gave birth at some point in the past week.

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have become parents for the second time, can exclusively reveal. The 38-year-old actress gave birth to a baby boy earlier this week and is currently holed up with the newborn, her singer husband Timberlake, 39, and eldest son Silas, five. understands Biel’s mother Kimberly Conroe Biel, 65, has also spent much of the past week with her daughter and newest grandchild. At Kimberley’s Salida, Colorado, home on Saturday, a friend revealed she plans to stay with Biel and Timberlake until Sunday and confirmed the sex of the new baby.

Representatives for both Timberlake and Biel have been contacted for comment.

Timberlake and Biel have not been pictured publicly since March and are thought to have been staying at their home in Big Sky, Montana, since March 25. An Instagram photo posted that day by Timberlake shows Biel from a distance standing in a snowy valley surrounded by mountains.

With the exception of that post, no photos showing Biel from the waist down have been released since her birthday in March, when she would have been around four months pregnant. Those pictures, which appear to have been taken at the couple’s Los Angeles home, show Biel in her pajamas and shrouded in a loose robe while blowing out candles on a cake held by Timberlake.

So, Jessica gave birth around July 13-14, let’s say. Let’s say she had a healthy pregnancy and she went to term. That means she and Justin conceived… mid-October? Something like that. Which means Jessica was in her first trimester (probably around five or six weeks along) when Justin was photographed getting handsy and cheatery with his costar Alisha Wainwright in New Orleans. Looking back, the fact that Jessica was pregnant during all of that adds an awful dimension to all of those stories, including Justin’s BS public apology to Biel. God, they just have an bad marriage, right? This wasn’t even a band-aid baby – Jessica probably got pregnant again because she thought they were in a really good place, and then he cheated on her yet again.

Also: I wonder if they’ll vaccinate this kid.

    Poor Jessica :/

  2. CherryL says:

    That’s why she didn’t leave him when he had an affair.

    • PamelaJudy says:

      Ugh. He really is the worst.

    • lucy2 says:


      I don’t remember them announcing the pregnancy, but the way he made that all about him, ugh.

    • Chica1971 says:

      She still could have.. Jessica has the means and could have kept her self respect and dignity

      • Melissa says:

        She made a choice that makes sense in her world – who are we to decide she has no self respect or dignity?
        Since when is a woman’s self worth determined by the man at her side?

  3. babsjohnson says:

    How sleazy.

  4. Eleonor says:

    Ehm congrats?
    I think she will go the Middleton route and stay with him no matter what.

    • SamC says:

      Really!? Does EVERY post need to have a Kate/William slam?

      • Ohok says:

        Yes. Yes, it does. 😆

      • Tanguerita says:

        Well, the similarities are glaringly obvious: two celebrity couples, equally useless , consisting of a sleazy excuse for a man and a doormat for a woman.

      • Eleonor says:

        For me there should also be a verb “to Middleton: remaining with your husband wife no matter what he does to you”

      • Melissa says:

        @ Eleanor — or perhaps to Hillary? To Khloe? To Beyonce? To Vanessa? To Eniko? To Victoria?

    • Nev says:

      They also only care about their own babies and not others even from their own family.

      • AnnaKist says:

        I’m so glad you said that, Nev. So many people still don’t realise the importance of extended family to a child’s development and ongoing mental well-being. These people need to stop talking about helping and being kind to each other and start doing it. Talk is cheap.

    • Prayer Warrior says:

      @SamC oddly I did not read Eleornor’s post as a Middleton slam per se…I read it with a *shrug* and considered it one of those factoids of truth. It is what it is.
      @Nev totally agree re they only care about their own babies…..Now that’s a similarity that infuriates me. Talk is cheap and I need to see both those couples walk the walk before I will fangirl either of them ever again…….

  5. Sarah says:

    I wish she’d get the therapy and get on with her life, I can’t believe this marriage makes her happy which is bad for both their children and for her.

  6. starryfish29 says:

    This definitely feels like a band-aid baby situation. Congrats to them though.

  7. DS9 says:

    Oh goodie, another unvaxxed kid in a pandemic

  8. S808 says:

    No comments around their situation (😬) but being pregnant, having a baby and only telling people after the fact>>>>> hope Duchess Meghan is able to do that if they choose to have another one.

  9. TheOriginalMia says:

    Will she get to name this child?

    • Noki says:

      Lol thats how i feel about Kim and Kanye ,i feel he named every single one of their children.

  10. Mireille says:

    Congrats to them both on their new baby! But why do I get the feeling that they’ve been having problems for awhile and that the affair was just the tipping point? There was not much gossip about either of them prior to his affair and after the initial reports of his affair, things got rather quiet about them again. They’ve managed to keep a lockdown on their privacy. Then, suddenly, here comes new baby…and maybe, possibly, a band-aid solution to their problems? Just speculating. My former boss and his wife had a band-aid baby hoping to repair their broken marriage (he had multiple affairs) and then they end up getting a divorce anyway.

    • Marietta58 says:

      Maybe he was getting drunk because Jessica was pregnant? (Then he got handsy after being drunk?) Maybe he didn’t want another kid… I really have no idea, just spit-balling. And he was drinking heavily because he didn’t want said kid, and it was a surprise to him. Who the hell lknows.

      I really used to like him and his music, but so many things just piss me off about him. I used to love listening to his albums, now I can’t.

      The only people I feel really bad for in this situation is the kids. Silas and the brand new baby. Sorry you have a dick for a dad.

      • ItReallyIsYou,NotMe says:

        If she was only 5-6 weeks along, it’s very possible that they didn’t even know about the pregnancy yet.

    • Kkat says:

      If she went full term and gave birth recently she would have been pregnant in sept not october. You go 40 weeks or 10 lunar months. 38 weeks to 41 is common
      So if she was pregnant in sept, he would have known

      • Andrea says:

        Some men can’t handle a second kid so that could be spot on. I have a friend whose husband asked her to abort the second kid and when she refused, he started trolling online for sex whilst she was pregnant and drinking heavily! He at least got a vasectomy afterwards. Shockingly, they are still together. She has been having an emotional affair on him for years now and will only jump ship to find a man who will be a father to her kids.

      • Sammiches says:

        She was pregnant and drinking heavily?!

      • Prayer Warrior says:

        @Sammiches…i understood that @Andrea meant that HE was drinking heavily whilst SHE was pregnant. Were you language policing cause she got her sentence order wrong? Seems snarky…so we hope you’re okay!

      • Anna says:

        I had my son July 13th (he was 3 days late). I got pregnant in October, and found out November 1st.

      • Chiara says:

        @Sammiches that’s not what it says and I hope you’re not just here being pedantic

    • SLH says:

      This is not the first time he got drunk and cheated while his wife was pregnant (luckily for him, his old PR team was way better equipped in 2014 and was able to bury the story of Zenya Bashford very quickly). Seems like he panics everytime. Not that he doesn’t already cheat.

  11. Arb says:

    Imagine someone agrees to carry your child and you’re so selfish that you immediately start having an affair. What a scumbag.

  12. tempest prognosticator says:

    Egad. The timing is unfortunate.

  13. jbyrdku says:

    I don’t understand his appeal, and I don’t get why you’d stay with someone who would publicly shame you that way (particularly when you’re expecting). I couldn’t do it.

  14. Capepopsie says:

    Having a baby to ”fix” your marriage is the worst solution ever! EVER.
    Just saying.

    • Lauren II says:

      Band- aid babies rarely work. Jessica is so beautiful & loyal, deserves better.
      Jess knew JT was not marriage material, but married him anyway.
      Maybe she wanted financial security & wealth? I cannot figure why anyone would marry him otherwise.

      • Neon says:

        Status. She was already a multimillionaire and pretty much set for life if she managed her money carefully. She lost out on that A list thing acting-wise. His wealth is on another level compared with hers. Reading the leaks that appeared to be from Olivia Munn’s team clarified how thirsty they are for status. Those leaks, whoever did them, said Munn would have been thrilled if he wanted something serious. Who would get with this guy if it wasn’t for the status. Aside, he has been looking really sleep deprived and bug-eyed in the past few years. Hope he’s not popping stuff to keep up with things. Musicians keep really bad hours.

  15. Teresa says:

    I hope they divorce so he can slightly redeem himself by vaccinating their kids. She doesn’t deserve to be cheated on though either and I do not get his appeal.

  16. Lawcatb says:

    I agree with Kaiser. He got caught in that hand holding scandal in late November. Jessica would have been eight weeks along at that point. I don’t think this was a bandaid baby. He just straight up cheated on his pregnant wife.

  17. Penguin says:

    Do people care? Was no need to “hide” the bump no one was actively looking. Weird couple. He’s creepy she’s just odd

  18. Joiluv says:

    It all makes since now why they were constantly reminding us about the balcony scene. I think if she wasn’t pregnant at the time they would have let it go that wasn’t the first time we’ve seen him in a situation like that.

  19. Mariane says:

    Well now we know why she stayed!!! The guy humiliated her and only “apologised” once the scandal threatened his movie and costar’s reputation. I hope they are on good terms & worked it out for the sake of the kids

  20. Emma says:

    I don’t feel sorry for her. She’s staying so she’s fine with the situation. Maybe they have a Jada & Will type of open relationship and have an understanding between them that staying together would be more beneficial to them both. They may have multiple relationships outside of their marriage with consent from each other. Kudos to them if it works for them…perhaps just not they type of relationship most people would want for themselves, but it works for them. It’s a slow news day thus I decided to click on this no-news worthy article to comment.

    • Neon says:

      Yes. Most celebs live such weird lives, especially on “the way up.” They present a semi-natural/like-civilian image due to PR. Probably a good number of celeb marriages are in fact OPEN, in secret!

  21. Mabs A'Mabbin says:


  22. Eliza_ says:

    Horrible statistics for you… some men are worse to their partners during pregnancy and aren’t just fetching pickled ice cream at 3am.

    Cheating and violence statistics go up:

    • Macm says:

      My thoughts exactly. Everything about him, even his “romantic” songs, scream red flags for me.

  23. TIFFANY says:

    This is the same woman who said that she was not offered parts because she is too beautiful.

    Where the hell is that confident Jessica?

  24. Case says:

    Wow, I’m really surprised. Congrats to them, I guess?

    I just saw a pap pic of Natalie Portman looking quite pregnant and was surprised by that too. I expect we’ll be getting an announcement from her at some point as well.

    • MissM says:

      I was especially surprised to see Natalie looking pregnant since she is supposed to be filming Thor Love and Thunder later this year. That schedule may change depending on Covid but I can’t imagine Marvel being too thrilled if her pregnancy throws their filming schedule off even more than it already had been.

    • Meg says:

      I saw that too, low waisted dress

  25. osito says:

    Hmmm…I went back and rewatched the video from when this story originally appeared, aaaaaaand I still don’t think it’s fair to name Alicia Wainwright as an “affair partner” here. The video makes it obvious that he’s *wasted* and even in the still pics, the one that people were really in a lather over at the time (with her arm on his thigh) he’s *gripping* her bicep. She literally seems to be avoiding touching his thigh with her whole hand by balancing on her arm. He also “holds hands” with whatever poor producer took him out of there while everyone on the balcony — including Alicia Wainwright — avoided eye contact. Alicia gave him a “later, bro” backslap on his way out, and some others fake smiled in his general direction as he *stumbled* his way out. There were no “sexy vibes” in that video. There were a lot of “babysitting vibes” though.

    I think he’s a terrible actor, I’ve never been a fan of his music even though I was in his target demo, and I agree that he is probably a waste of O2 as a husband and father, but I really don’t think Alicia did what she was being accused of here. I have no doubt that cheats on JB *regularly*, but I don’t think his costar is/was someone he cheated with. He used that story to make himself look like a ladies’ man (🤢), and I don’t think his wife or his costar deserved that.

    • Melissa says:

      I never quite got him as an actor either — he was tolerable in Trouble with the Curve because of an OUTSTANDING Amy and Clint (even though he’s awful)…basically anyone male or female could have handled that role.
      His music was a thing back before I needed foundation garments so I’m not sure what the current appeal is…eh?

  26. BL says:

    He has always given off disgusting & arrogant vibes. I know very little about her, she just unfortunately appears to be a bit of a doormat.
    Question…are they both anti-vaxers?!

  27. SJR says:

    She is a damn fool to stay.
    He is a pig. Wasn’t he just bitching about having to help with #1. kid?

    She has 3 kids on her hands now.

  28. Jessie says:

    My therapist told me men cheating during pregnancy is more common than expected, because they get selfish and mad (even subconsciously) that they aren’t the center of attention. It happened to me at 11 weeks pregnant with a PLANNED baby. Things never really got better.

    • Meg says:

      I remember Brian Austin green joking about being ignored by Megan after the recent birth of one of his kids. It was a print interview if it had been video I would’ve been more assured he was thoroughly joking or merely exaggerating just a bit because to me it says he was chipping in little if at all with their kids if he had the energy to even think about missing sex with a newborn in the house and two other kids to care for. Men sound like children themselves when talking like that, she’s caring for the kids she used to take care of me! Grow up. You don’t think she’d miss affection or sex too but maybe you’re not there for her during sex so she doesn’t have much to miss! Ugh it’s just an infuriating comment to make

    • Darla says:

      My brother had an affair during the entirety of his wife’s 2nd pregnancy. One week after the birth, he left her. About a year and a half later they got back together and have been together ever since. I cannot say happily together. Oh this was about 18 years ago.

  29. Sarah says:

    All I can think about reading this story is that Jessica Biel represents an anti-science, anti-vaxx agenda and gives more people in this country even more fuel to ignore the experts and drive this country into the ground. That is all.

    • Darla says:

      Yeah, I have no empathy for her. I just don’t care. He’s interesting in that he represents the rodents of men, but he’s not special. I mean, there’s a lot of them.

  30. Carobell says:

    I certainly sympathize because no woman deserves to be cheated on, but I do wonder if they have an understanding. Not that he can cheat publicly, but that as long as he doesn’t embarrass her she turns a blind eye.

    Publicly falling all over a pretty young costar did lead to a weirdly performative apology. So yes she is married to a pig, but she lives a life wealth, privilege and ease and has that for her children as well.

    Alternatively she more calculated than we give her credit for, and is waiting out her 10 years of marriage or meeting some unknown terms of her prenup.

  31. McMom says:

    Wait, she’s from Salida? I know Salida, CO (I just drove through it last month). There isn’t much going on in Salida. What a culture shock next to Hollywood

  32. Canadiangirl says:

    Such negativity. Geez.

  33. Neon says:

    Was she physically pregnant? I scanned her IG and she had pics of herself very slim back in April….surrogate?

    • SLH says:

      She was definitely pregnant. Jessica was reposting old photos of herself almost all year. The one new picture where she’s in a robe you can see her belly.

  34. Daisha says:

    He cheated on Nsync before her

  35. Bread and Circusese says:

    I wonder if his belated public grovelling was because Jessica got serious about divorcing him, and he finally realized he really might not get away with it this time.

    Anyway, I hope they’re in a better place now and their family thrives together.
