Silas Timberlake is the most under-the-radar celebrity baby ever, so this is a big deal
Even the most devoted of Justin Timberlake superfans haven’t seen much of the former N*SYNC singer’s 3-year-old son, Silas Timberlake. Justin and his wife, Jessica Biel, keep Silas seriously under the radar. They almost never share photos of him. And when they do, they normally obscure his face in some way.
Silas Timberlake is one of the most famous babies of all time, but his parents are working hard to keep him out of the spotlight. Who can blame them, really? If he wants to be a celeb, he can choose that life, rather than have it thrust upon him because his parents are solidly A-list.
But for Father’s Day, Justin shared a gift for the entire world: A collection of four new photos of baby Silas along with an incredibly sweet message about fatherhood. This is definitely the most we’ve seen of Silas in his entire short life.
True to form, though, Justin made sure the kiddo’s face was obscured in every shot. Bummer, but still — so freaking cute.
Alongside the photos, Daddy Timberlake wrote a sweet message to all the dads in the world.
“The last 3 years of my life have brought more joy than I could ever imagine. Being a father is such a trip… an amazing discovery every day,” he wrote, before launching into a sweet message to Silas. “My son: it is my honor to be your Daddy. You make me feel a love that I didn’t know existed. I will ALWAYS be there… to pick you up when you fall, to lift you up when you are ready to soar, and to remind you that your humility will be your guide through this thing called life,” he wrote.
He ended the caption with a Father’s Day message for all dads: “Keep on keeping on! Our children are watching and listening more than we know! I’m celebrating you all today! Happy Father’s Day! Cheers!”
This is the first time Silas has made a social media appearance since just after he was born, when Justin shared a pic celebrating their first family Christmas, again with the baby’s face hidden.
Silas also briefly appeared in the “Man Of The Woods” preview video. But for the most part, he’s been absent from the public eye, despite his very famous mom and dad. We’d ask for more shots of this cutie, but if Justin and Jessica want to keep him out of the spotlight for a while, we guess that’s OK, too.
