Jessica Biel talks for the first time about secretly giving birth during a pandemic

Jessica Biel, 39, and Justin Timberlake, 40, became parents for the second time last July. The couple for a long time kept the news of the addition a secret, but the media still managed to find out some details. The first official comments Justin and Jessica began to give only a few months later. In the winter, Timberlake became a guest on the Ellen DeGeneres talk show and in an interview he confirmed that he became a father again. During a virtual conversation, the artist revealed the sex and name of the baby – the newborn son was named Phineas.

The other day, Jessica Biel did open up about the pregnancy and childbirth. The actress was a guest on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast. She admitted that she loves being a mother of two sons. Recall that in addition to 11-month-old Phineas, she and Justin Timberlake have a 6-year-old son Silas.

“It’s not really that I intentionally kept my second pregnancy a secret. It was just COVID, the height of the pandemic. I went to Montana with my family and never left there again,” Jessica Biel shared.

The actress also revealed that she was very nervous about whether Justin would be allowed to be in the hospital during the birth due to COVID restrictions. However, the worries were in vain – Timberlake was by his wife’s side when Phineas was born.

“If I had to be there alone, it would have been awful. I was really scared,” Jessica admitted.

The actress stated that being a mother of two is “super hard,” but added: “A family of four is amazing.”

Speaking about her sons’ futures, Beale stressed that she wouldn’t want them to follow in their parents’ footsteps. “Oh, God, no, not that,” Jessica exclaimed. – “But then I look at my kids and I think, ‘Oh, gosh, they’ll probably be musical. What are we going to do? Well, how do we not let them play the piano or let them take vocal lessons if that’s their passion…? I don’t want to be that parent who takes away a child’s dream.”
