Jessica Biel has opened up about being pregnant during the pandemic. The 39-year-old is married to singer Justin Timberlake. Biel told Dax Shepard on Monday on the Armchair Expert podcast that, “I had, like, a secret Covid baby.”

“It wasn’t like it was supposed to be a secret. It was just that Covid happened and then I went to Montana with my family and never left,” she said.

Timberlake, 40, revealed during an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show in January that he and Biel had welcomed their second son, Phineas, during the pandemic. Phineas is now 11 months old. Timberlake and Biel also have a six-year-old son, Silas. Biel revealed that she was “really getting nervous” as the Covid-19 restrictions were changed at the time of her son’s birth, but thankfully Timberlake was allowed to be present for the birth of Phineas, as reported by The Straits Times.

As a mum of two, she found that the “balance of everything is very different and super hard”.

“Someone said to me, ‘Two is like having a thousand.’ And that’s exactly what it feels like,” she added.

She added: “But, man, if my kid would just be like, ‘Let’s go learn about corn in Iowa.’ I’d be like, ‘Great.’ I would so much rather they be an engineer or something.”/TISGFollow us on Social Media
