Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are a family of four. After months of speculation, Timberlake’s former fellow *NSYNC group member, Lance Bass, confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that the couple welcomed a second baby earlier this year.
“The baby is cute of course, it’s Justin and Jessica!” Bass told ET’s Katie Krause on Friday while chatting about his podcast, “The Daily Popcast”. While Bass wouldn’t go into detail about Timberlake and Biel’s second child, he did share that the *NSYNC members knew before everyone else and their group chat is now all about babies and the newborn
Bass also said that he’s seen pictures, but wouldn’t give up the name, joking, “That’s a good question,” adding, “Justin would kill me!”
ET has reached out to the pair’s reps for comment. Back in July, reports stated that the actress gave birth to her second child, a baby boy, with the “Like I Love You” singer.
Timberlake, 39, and Biel, 38, are already parents to 5-year-old son Silas. The two have stayed out of the public eye for the past months, and have yet to share the news on their social media.
They have, however, been posting photos of one another on Instagram, celebrating Mother’s Day in May and Biel’s birthday in March.
“Celebrating my birthday in style… and by that I mean, in pajamas. I made Justin PROMISE not to sing Happy Birthday to me, so he improvised,” Biel captioned the cute pics. “Sorry you can’t hear it, but I’m still laughing ?. Thank you, you wonderful human, for really listening to me, and for throwing my kinda party. And thank YOU ALL for the birthday wishes. Feeling the love.”

Celebrating my birthday in style… and by that I mean, in pajamas. I made Justin PROMISE not to sing Happy Birthday to me, so he improvised. Sorry you can’t hear it, but I’m still laughing 😂. Thank you, you wonderful human, for really listening to me, and for throwing my kinda party. And thank YOU ALL for the birthday wishes. Feeling the love.
In May, Biel shared a family selfie, captioning the shot, “These two people make being a momma the greatest job in the whole world! The moments spent with you both are truly the most precious and funniest and glorious times of my life. I love you both so much! ?.”
In November, Timberlake made headlines when he was photographed holding hands with his “Palmer” co-star, Alisha Wainwright, while at a bar in New Orleans, though a source told ET at the time that the two were like brother and sister and their interaction that night was “harmless.” Still, he later publicly apologized to Biel on Instagram.
“A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgment — but let me be clear — nothing happened between me and my costar. I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior,” he wrote in part.
In January, a source told ET that both had moved on from the scandal.
“After Justin was spotted holding hands with his co-star, the couple took time to reconnect, spending much-needed quality time together,” the source said. “Justin and Jessica love one another very much and weren’t going to let this come between them, more so since Justin told Jessica he didn’t cheat, and she believes him.”
“The couple has put everything past them and has moved on,” the source added.
