Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have announced the birth of their son, as well as the baby’s name of Silas Randall. And when Justin’s mom Lynn Harless discovered that name, she took to social media to voice her joy, reported Glamour.
“My amazing son and his beautiful wife have given us the most precious gift in the world! Silas Randall Timberlake! Named after my father and my son! Life is beautiful and we couldn’t be happier! God bless you all and thanks for all the congrats!”
Silas is the first child for Biel and Timberlake, who were married in 2012. It was Justin who broke the baby bump news, reported Us Weekly.
Timberlake chose his birthday to make the announcement by sharing a photo displaying his wife’s baby bump.
“This year, I’m getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN’T WAIT.”
But they didn’t take time off during her pregnancy. Jessica filmed The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea in New Orleans.
The two dated for five years, becoming solid best friends before they married.
“It’s nice to marry your best friend. It suits me,” revealed Timberlake.
As for his love for his wife?
“Every once in a while I can catch a glimpse of her when she doesn’t see me looking, and I have this moment where I’m like, ‘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.'”
If those words sound familiar, there’s a reason. As the Inquisitr reported, Kristen Bell just revealed why she considers marrying Dax Shepard the best decision of her life.
“moment i promised myself to @daxshepard1. best decision ive made 2date #OAchats”
So how did their love story begin, and what bumps and bruises did the couple sustain on the way to the altar and parenthood? Biel and Timberlake actually met in 2007, according to People.
It was just after Justin’s break-up with Cameron Diaz, and the two were regarded as besties rather than boyfriend-girlfriend status.
“It’s all about having fun,” claimed a source at the time. “He’s trying to have a good time.”
But oh, how times have changed, as Timberlake has repeatedly voiced his forever-love for Jessica Biel, reported Entertainment Tonight.
Justin shared his romantic feelings for his wife on her birthday.
“Happy Bday to the sweetest, most GORGEOUS, goofiest, most BAD-A** chick I know. You make me smile ’til it hurts. I love you like crazy! –Your Huz”
