Speaking the truth. Justin Timberlake admitted parenting while in quarantine is the ultimate struggle during an interview aired on Wednesday, April 8. The 39-year-old and wife Jessica Biel are currently social distancing at their home in Montana with their 5-year-old son, Silas.
“I think we’re doing good!” Justin told Sirius XM Hits1. “We’re mostly commiserating over the fact that … this 24-hour parenting is just not human.” He admitted even Silas needs a break from him from time to time. “He’ll look at me like this,” the “SexyBack” singer said with his eyes wide and head tilted to the side, “And I’m like, ‘All right, cool. I got you, let’s take 20. Just a commercial break.’”
Despite managing around the clock parenting, he said they are doing just fine amid the coronavirus pandemic. “We thought the best way to do our part was … we have a place in Montana, and so we came up here. We feel very lucky and blessed that we’re in a place where they’re pretty socially distant here anyway.”
That same day, Justin and Jessica, 38, celebrated their son’s 5th birthday. “This little man is 5 today! We’re at home, covered in Legos and birthday cake right now,” the actress wrote on Instagram, giving fans a look at how they spent his special day in social isolation.
“I just found this pic on my phone from last summer and it made me so happy,” she captioned a photo with Silas over her shoulder. “To celebrate his big birthday, we’re supporting @savethechildren and @feedingamerica, who are doing so much good work to keep kids and families healthy and fed during this time ❤️ Scroll through your old pictures today and post something that brings you a little bit of joy! Sending lots of love to you all …”
Just last month, the Trolls World Tour star pulled out all the stops for Jessica’s birthday on March 3 and gave her a sweet shout out on Instagram. The two are “in a good place right now,” a source exclusively told In Touch at the time. After the singer encountered a PDA scandal with costar Alisha Wainwright in November 2019, the couple is stronger than ever.
“The played-out drama on the set of Justin’s film is behind them,” the insider added. “Jessica hasn’t forgotten, but she’s not making him suffer for it. She’s definitely moved forward. There’s absolutely no doubt that they love each other.”
