In a clip from Monday (Jan. 18, 2021) episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the talk show host recalled being one of a few who were informed about Jessica’s secret pregnancy.
“Jessica walked in and you put your hand on her stomach and was like ‘hey, we’re having another baby,’ ” Ellen shared. The 39-year-old singer/actor confirmed, “You were one of the first people outside our immediate family that we told.”
Revealing his son’s name for the first time, he said on camera, “His name is Phineas, and he’s awesome and so cute. ” He joked, “…and nobody’s sleeping,” before adding, “But we’re thrilled. We’re thrilled and couldn’t be happier. Very grateful.”
Acknowledging the challenge of being parents to two kids, Justin jested, “We don’t see each other anymore.” He continued, “It’s a lot of fun, but I guess the saying goes, you go from a zone defense to a man-to-man really quickly. Sort of like, ‘You go get that one, I’ll get this one!’ “
Of how his first son reacts to being an older brother, he shared, “Silas is super excited. Right now, he’s very much liking it. Phin can’t walk yet or chase him down, so I don’t know. We’ll see what happens.”
Timberlake, 39, and Biel, 38, are already parents to 5-year-old son Silas.
Justin additionally dished on Silas’ favorite activities. When asked by Ellen if the 5-year-old is musical like him, the “SexyBack” hitmaker replied, “He is, he is. But he’s into Legos and tennis. We got him a Nintendo Switch. It’s just like, child crack.”
Timberlake’s former NSYNC group member, Lance Bass, confirmed to Entertainment Tonight in September that the superstar couple had welcomed their second child earlier in the year, but he declined to share the baby’s name because “Justin would kill me.”
