Justin Timberlake and wife Jessica Biel have welcomed their first child.
The couple’s rep confirmed the arrival of their son, Silas Randall Timberlake, on Saturday and told People the 34-year-old singer is ‘ecstatic’ and both mom and baby are doing well.
The traditional Biblical first name makes a refreshingly normal, albeit rather uncommon choice, amidst the recent crop of creative celebrity monikers, while Randall is the name of Justin’s father and is in fact the singer’s own middle name.
The Suit & Tie hit maker finally confirmed Jessica’s pregnancy in January after months of keeping it under wraps.
On the singer’s 34th birthday he shared a snap of him kissing his wife’s baby belly captioning: ‘Thank you EVERYONE for the Bday wishes! This year, I’m getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN’T WAIT,’
According to his hashtags on the image, the couple chose to wait until their baby’s arrival to find out the sex.
New grandson: Justin’s mum Lynn was among the first to congratulate the couple on Twitter
Delighted: The new granny posted a second tweet revealing just how happy she was at the news
Justin’s mum Lynn Harless was among the first to congratulate the couple on Twitter.
She wrote: ‘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!’
The new grandmother then followed up with a second tweet claiming her ‘face hurts from smiling so much’.
Justin gave a shout out to his 33-year-old wife at the iHeartRadio Music Awards last month when he picked up the Innovator Award.
‘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,’ he said.
Jessica stayed busy with work right through the third trimester, with her latest project.
She both stars in and produces The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea due out next year and the dedicated actress was seen working long hours on set up until late February.
