It’s a banner week for delightful celebrity parent couple anniversaries; Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are celebrating theirs, just a few days after Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell’s oft-forgotten anniversary. And what do both couples have in common? Aside from talent, money, and great hair… They’re all super honest about parenting in the most heartfelt and often hilarious ways.
Biel and Timberlake, for example, have no qualms about complaining how difficult their son, 5-year-old Silas, can be — whether he’s making messes or forcing them to eat in the shower. But through all the exhaustion and annoyances, they love this little guy endlessly. Celebrity parents: They’re just as tired/overwhelmed/obsessed with their kids as we are! In fact, Biel and Timberlake are so cool and honest, my own son Silas and I may even forgive them for stealing my baby name. Maybe.
Biel and Timberlake celebrate their eighth year of marriage today, and it’s been a doozy for them. In addition to 2020’s general awfulness (you know, global pandemic and widespread racial violence), this year of marriage started rough for the couple when cheating rumors began after Timberlake was photographed holding co-star Alisha Wainwright’s hand. But it turned out nothing was going on, Timberlake gave Biel the public apology she deserved, and the pair were able to put it behind them (quite faster than the tabloids were) and move on.
They’ve moved on so much, in fact, that they reportedly welcomed their second child this summer! The couple has yet to confirm their new addition or release any details — but Timberlake’s erstwhile NSYNC bandmate Lance Bass confirmed the baby’s arrival, so that totally counts, right?
To celebrate this beautiful pair of parents (and wish them many more years of laughs, kid messes, correct body anatomy terms, and maybe a tad less drama than this year), read on for Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s most honest parenting quotes — and see if you can relate.
