Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel have welcomed their first child together.
According to People, reps for the couple have confirmed that mother and baby are doing well, and dad is ‘ecstatic’ after the arrival of baby boy named Silas Randall Timberlake.
The name Silas is a nod to Timberlake’s maternal grandfather, while Randall is the Suit & Tie singer’s middle name, along with his father’s first name.
Timberlake’s mum Lynn Harless took to Facebook to share her excitement, posting:
Despite much speculation in the early stages, the couple didn’t confirm they were expecting their first child until Timberlake posted this touching photo on his birthday in February:
Timberlake couldn’t contain his excitement at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, making special mention of his wife in his acceptance speech.
‘You can’t have innovation without creation, so finally, I want to thank my best friend, my favorite collaborator — my wife, Jessica, at home, who’s watching.”
“I can’t wait to see our greatest creation yet,” he continued. “Daddy’s heading home right now to innovate by learning how to change a poopy diaper and get my swaddle on!”
