Justin Timberlake and wife Jessica Biel welcomed their first child into the world early Saturday, according to news reports.
The 34-year-old pop star and 33-year-old actress had a baby boy and gave the newly arrived human a name that pays homage to his paternal lineage, according to US Weekly.
“My amazing son and his beautiful wife have given us the most precious gift in the world!” Timberlake’s mother, Lynn, wrote on Facebook, according to US Weekly. “Silas Randall Timberlake! Named after my father and my son! Life is beautiful and we couldn’t be happier! God bless you all and thanks for all the congrats!”
The excitement, congratulations and baby-naming critiques poured in over social media as soon as the news was announced. Silas Randall Timberlake, an entity who has been breathing air for maybe half a day, is already being compared to other scions of celebrity royalty such as Blue Ivy Carter, James Reynolds and North West. The public’s expectations, it seems, are immense.

Silas Randall #Timberlake sounds like he was born in jodphurs and reeking of crisp Benjamins.

The couple had kept their pregnancy quiet until the final few months, according to People. Timberlake has yet to comment on his newborn son but had this to say under a caption of him kissing his wife’s bare belly back in January:
“Thank you EVERYONE for the Bday wishes! This year, I’m getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN’T WAIT.”
