Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake still haven’t had a second baby, despite a report a year ago that claimed she was pregnant. Gossip Cop reported the story was untrue when it originally came out. Now 12 months have gone by, and it’s clear our debunking was correct.
On April 5, 2017, we called out Life & Style for this bogus pregnancy tale. The tabloid cited a so-called “source,” who claimed Biel “just found [out]” that she was expecting their second child. The purported snitch described the actress and her musician husband as “both so excited because they have been talking about expanding their family for the last year.” Further contending Biel and Timberlake envisioned a large family, the gossip magazine’s questionable insider declared, “This is really just the beginning.”
The outlet even asserted that the couple was hoping the baby would be a girl, while their son Silas supposedly had his heart set on a little brother. And to make it easier on the allegedly expectant Biel, the ill-informed “source” maintained Timberlake had “agreed to take a hiatus” from his career. Gossip Cop, however, was assured on the condition of anonymity that the claims were “not true,” and time has proven the article was indeed wrong on all counts: Biel was not pregnant and Timberlake never put his career on hold.
For starters, if the couple really did have a baby on the way, the birth would’ve happened three months ago. Obviously, that never took place because Biel was not with child. She also would’ve had an unmissable baby bump as 2017 worn down. Yet this photo of Biel wearing a see-through outfit last November shows she was as thin as ever.
As for Timberlake, as opposed to putting his career on the backburner, that October it was confirmed he’d perform at the 2018 Super Bowl Halftime Show. Then, Timberlake ended up releasing his fifth album, Man Of The Woods, in early February, just two days before the big gig. And last month, Timberlake embarked on a headlining tour to support the record.
Neither he nor his wife are at home taking care of an infant. In fact, she’s been joining Timberlake on the road. Olympian Aly Raisman posted a photo to Twitter on Thursday, showing her posing with the singer and Biel backstage at Wednesday’s concert in Boston. So not only has Timberlake not taken a “hiatus,” but Biel is accompanying him during this next phase of his career. There’s even tour dates already scheduled through January of 2019.
Additionally, in a video released on YouTube this week, Biel and Timberlake reflect on their parenthood journey with their former nanny, and nothing is mentioned about having a second child. Of course, that’s not to say the couple won’t ever give Silas a sibling and that Biel won’t possibly be pregnant again one day. But this much is indisputable: They’ve yet to have a second baby and Life & Style was 100 percent wrong when it claimed they were expecting 365 days ago.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
