It a family of four now for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. Amid reports that Jessica gave birth to their second child in early July, Justin’s old friend and collaborator, Brian McKnight, has confirmed the news.
Brian made this revelation while was promoting his latest album Exodus in an interview. The RnB legend produced NSYNC’s Celebrity in 2001 and Justin’s first solo album, Justified, in 2002. Justin even appeared on Brian’sBrian’s 2001 track ‘‘My Kind of Girl’’.
Talking to HollywoodLife, Brian said, “Having kids and having his family, I think [Justin] took some time to focus on those things because those things are very important.” The singer continued, “I think if he’s going to do music, she’s going to make sure that that’sthat’s secure, and then he’ll bring us into his music.”
He further said that Justin seemingly would be getting more inspiration from his new baby, saying, “And being inspired! He just had a new baby. I think that’sthat’s going to be really inspiring for him and he’ll have some new music based on that, I’m sure.”
On July 18, The Daily Mail reported that Timberlake and Biel welcomed their second child, a baby boy, at their Montana ranch. This news was a complete surprise to all as the couple never publicly announced Biel was pregnant. The duo took extreme lengths to avoid showing Biel on Instagram. Her recent posts either feature throwback photos or selfies. On March 3, Biel posted a picture from her 38th birthday where she is seen wearing loose-fitting clothes.
Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake are already parents to 5-year-old Silas.
The news of baby No. 2 came months after Timberlake hand-holding ‘‘cheating’’ scandal with actress Alisha Wainwright in November. The two actors were snapped holding hands outside a New Orleans bar while on break from their film Palmer. Justin issued a public apology, saying he drank too much the night the photos were taken.
Brian McKnight’s Exodus, which released on June 26, is full of jams about his wife of three years, Leilani Mendoza.
