Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have just welcomed their first child together.
Their reps confirm, Jessica gave birth to a baby boy. They also revealed the name: Silas Randall Timberlake.
Their spokesperson told PEOPLE that the new mother and father were both “ecstatic.” And, “Further details are being kept private at this time.”
Previously, Justin received criticism for the way in which he confirmed the pregnancy.
He avoided the topic for months and then, after also being criticised for pulling focus in his wedding photos, fans felt he pulled focus in the baby announcement.
When they got married, the couple released their wedding photos in PEOPLE. Justin could be seen jumping up and down with his heel at Jessica’s eye level, which some people felt was disrespectful. And this January, when he confirmed that they were expecting, Justin shared a photo that cropped off his wife’s head!
He shared the above photo on Instagram with the caption “Thank you EVERYONE for the Bday wishes! This year, I’m getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN’T WAIT. #BoyOrGirl #YouNeverKnow #WeDontEvenKnow #WeAreTakingBets.” At least now we all know, it’s a boy!
Earlier this year, it was reported that Justin completely ignored Jessica on their babymoon. He sat on his cell phone and sulked the whole time. Jessica was reportedly heartbroken at his lack of commitment after reportedly strongarming Justin into starting a family in the first place.
