Justin Timberlake, an American singer, has for the first time spoken about the baby boy he and Jessica Biel, his wife, welcomed last year.
The 39-year-old record producer spoke about life as a dad of two during a virtual appearance on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ which was aired on Monday.
In a snippet of the interview shared on Ellen DeGeneres’ Twitter page, the TV host had recalled that the couple were expecting their baby last year and decided to confirm the child’s birth.
“You’re a dad again, you have another little child. I remember I thought back on it, I think we were face-timing and you said, hey you want to know a secret? And then Jessica walked in and you put your hand on her stomach and you were like we’re having another baby,” she said.
In his reply, the singer admitted that Ellen was one of the first people who knew they were expecting a child. He also revealed that the baby’s name is Phineas.
“You are one of the first people outside of our immediate family that we told. His name is Phineas and he’s awesome. And he’s so cute. And nobody’s sleeping. But we’re thrilled. We’re thrilled and couldn’t be happier, very grateful,” the Grammy winner replied.

In July last year, there were reports that the couple had secretly welcomed the baby. The lovebirds, however, did not issue an official statement to confirm or deny reports of the arrival of their bundle of joy.
The couple tied the knot in October 2012 in Italy and welcomed Silas, their first child, in 2015.
