It seems A-list couple Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel may be ready to give their three-year-old son, Silas Timberlake, a baby brother or sister! According to a new report, sources close to the 37-year-old singer and the 36-year-old actress are buzzing that Justin and Jessica may be expecting baby No. 2.
“Justin and Jessica have been thinking about having another baby for a while,” a source told OK! magazine, adding that while Jessica was initially happy being a mother-of-one, she’s now ready to have another baby.
“It was a surprise, but she loves Silas so much, and the thought of having another child just like him got her excited. So she decided to throw caution to the wind — they’re both thrilled,” the insider continued. “There are whispers they underwent fertility treatments to make the process easier because they wanted it to happen as soon as possible.”
According to the friend, the pair feel that “in their hearts, having a second child is the right decision” and now is the perfect time to try for another. “They always wanted to make sure that they could give Silas time and space to grow and develop on his own. He’s been asking for a sibling and even patted Jessica’s belly once and asked if there was a baby inside! It was very sweet,” the source shared.
Lucky for Jessica, her hubby, Justin, is already a great father to little Silas. “[Justin] loves being a dad. He takes such wonderful care of Silas and goes out of his way to make sure Jess is never overwhelmed. Whether that means staying up all night because Silas can’t sleep, or simply taking him to and from his play group, Justin is always happy to help,” the insider said.
“Everyone knows they’ve had their ups and downs over the years. But now it’s fair to say they’re happier than they’ve ever been. They love being parents and are madly in love with each other. A second baby would truly be a blessing,” the source continued.
This actually isn’t the first time that Justin and Jessica’s desires to expand their family have made headlines. A few months ago, sources told Life & Style that The Sinner star’s friends thought “Jessica could be pregnant again.”
And, one month before that, Justin revealed he wants to have as many children as possible with Jessica during a chat with Beats 1‘s Zane Lowe. “I want to have as many kids as we can if I’m being honest. I’ve never felt more inept my life. You wake up and all of a sudden there’s this human being you’re responsible for,” he revealed in January.
The 7th Heaven alum and JT started dating in 2007 and announced their engagement in December 2011. It was less than one year later on Oct. 12, 2012, that they tied the knot at the Borgo Egnazia resort in Fasano, Italy. The couple waited several years to start their family as Silas was born in 2015. We can’t wait to hear more about Baby Timberlake No. 2!
