It's hard for celebrities to keep much from their personal lives out of the public eye but, apparently, COVID-19 has made that a bit easier. At least I'm assuming so considering there are reports that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have welcomed their second child in what, to this point, would've been a top-secret pregnancy.
The reports come from The Dailymail, which said that the celebrity power couple welcomed their second child at some point earlier this week. It is believed the newborn is a boy, like the couple's first son, 5-year-old Silas. Typically, a celebrity having a child wouldn't be too hard for outlets to verify but, given the couple has not posted any photos of the child, nor announced a pregnancy, the news is a bit of a shock. Provided the reports are true, how did they even pull this off?
It is believed the couple has been hanging out in Big Sky, Montana during the coronavirus pandemic. I'd assume there are considerably less paparazzi in that area, leaving tabloids and others to scour social media for any evidence that Jessica Biel may have been pregnant. As anyone who jumps over there may see, there is no evidence. Biel has not posted full-body shots from this year since March, unless it was a throwback photo or video. Her most recent self-portrait was taken from the shoulders up:
The same is true with Justin Timberlake's Instagram, which has not featured any recent shots of Jessica Biel in some time. Reports say that Biel's mother, Kimberly Conroe Biel, has been staying with the family the past week and helping out. As of Sunday afternoon, no birth announcement or pictures of the alleged baby boy have been posted.
As previously mentioned, this is the second child for the couple, who have been married since 2012. The couple have been together as far back as 2007, though separated briefly before their marriage in 2012. Publicly, the two have had a seemingly smooth marriage, though there was some controversy in late 2019 when Timberlake was spotted holding hands in public with Alisha Wainwright. Timberlake publicly apologized to Biel amidst the scandal, and the couple have seemingly moved past it.
Believe it or not, this is only the most recent major celebrity news to emerge out of Montana, as similar surprise news dropped a while back that Kelly Clarkson and her husband Brandon Blackstock were splitting up. It seems like if celebrities would like to keep their private affairs private, Montana is a great place to do so. Come to think of it, that may be just as true with anyone, though tabloids typically don't trail regular people.
