Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel Are Not Loving the Terrible Twos

Jenn is perhaps best known as the author of the popular parenting blog Breed ‘Em and Weep (2005-2012). She’s written for many magazines, newspapers and websites, including Brain, Child Magazine, Literary Mama, and The Boston Globe. Jenn’...

We love how real Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are about parenting, even (especially) when it sucks

We are terrible people. When we heard that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are dealing with the terrible twos, we laughed. (But, you know, in a nice way. We're laughing with you guys, not at you. Because we've totally been there.)

Apparently, Baby TimberBiel — Silas — is already giving them a serious run for their money and won't turn two until April. Silas is clearly a serious force to be reckoned with, which is maybe not surprising considering his dad single-handedly brought all the sexy back, in the whole world. That takes some doing and some pretty impressive genetic code.

“He does not want the diapers changed,” Timberlake told Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet at the Oscars.  “He’s hitting his terrible twos a little early, so we’re hoping he’ll get out of them a little early.” Heh-heh. That's the spirit! Good luck with that, you guys!

Biel's description of her son was pretty much perfection for all of us who have survived raging toddlers: “He’s doing amazing, but it’s one of those things where you’re like, I love you, but I don’t know if I like you,” she said. OK, Jessica, in that vein, we liked you, but now we love you.

We get the feeling these two are very hands-on parents, which is pretty awesome. Timberlake has talked candidly about fatherhood before: “There’s... moments where you’re like, ‘This is really hard and I don’t know what the hell I’m doing.’” 

Our favorite Timberlake dad quote? “Those first eight months felt like those old [Ed Sullivan] shows where people are balancing spinning plates on poles — except if you drop one, they die.” 

Can't stop the spinning. Yup, that pretty much sums up parenthood. Well said, JT.
