Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are parents of a baby boy, according to a report out Saturday.

The couple’s first son is named Silas Randall Timberlake, reps for the two told People in confirming the birth.

Beyond the name, details are reportedly being kept private for now, in line with the couple’s approach to confirming the pregnancy in the first place. While word that a baby was on the way bubbled up in November and seemed to be confirmed by former N’Sync bandmate Joey Fatone in December, the new parents didn’t go public until the end of January.

“Thank you EVERYONE for the Bday wishes!,” Timberlake said on Instagram on his 34th birthday. “This year, I’m getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN’T WAIT. #BoyOrGirl #YouNeverKnow #WeDontEvenKnow #WeAreTakingBets.”


The couple marked Biel’s birthday in March with a low-key dinner party with friends, after he wished her well via Instagram and called her “the sweetest, most GORGEOUS, goofiest, most BAD-ASS chick I know.”

Dad and son now share a middle name, Randall.

Biel, 33, and the “Suit and Tie” singer got engaged in early 2012 and tied the knot later that year.
