Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake only confirmed that they were expecting their first child together in February, months after media outlets started reporting the news. And fair enough – maybe they just weren’t ready to share it before then. But here’s something they have shared: the baby is here! Jessica welcomed their baby boy, named Silas Randall Timberlake, this week! Yay!
Reps say mom and baby are doing well and dad is “ecstatic.” Further details are being kept private at this time.
Well, that’s that! I like the name – it’s creative without being too “out there” like many celebs choose. As for its significance, I’m not really sure about Silas. The only connection, according to Google, is that some A&R guy who helped Justin go solo and put out Justified is named Silas White, but I doubt they named the kid after that.
Randall, however, is a family name. It’s his dad’s first name and Justin’s middle name, so it’s cute that they’re passing it down.
Mazel tov to these two – I think they’re a cute couple and the baby will probably be adorable, too.
