Justin Timberlake has taken to instagram to share the first photograph of his baby boy Silas Rendell Timberlake.
As reported last week, Timberlake is currently celebrating the birth of his first child with his wife, actress Jessica Biel.
Reports of the birth were confirmed by People magazine last Saturday (April 11) with reps for the pair confirming Biel was doing well and Timberlake was ‘ecstatic’ following the arrival of his first child.
Silas Rendell Timberlake takes on names from Justin’s own family. Silas was the middle name of Timberlake’s maternal grandfather Bill Bomas, who passed away in 2012. While Randall is his own middle name and his father’s first name.
The photograph shows Silas Rendell Timberlake wearing the jersey of Timberlake’s favourite basketball team Memphis Grizzlies, along with the caption: “The Timberlakes are ready!!! GO GRIZZ! #GritNGrind #Playoffs #BabyGrizzROAR”
Timberlake recently picked up the Innovator Award at the iHeartRadio Awards in Los Angeles. Whilst accepting his award he revealed he was bullied at school.
The singer said he was branded “weird” as a teenager, and offered encouraging words to teens experiencing teasing and bullying.
He said: “Growing up in school, no one ever called me anything close to an innovator, they called me different, they called me weird, they called me a couple of other words I can’t say on TV.
“So thankfully my mother taught me that being different was a good thing, that being different meant you could actually make a difference, so tonight I want to thank my mom.”
