  • Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have welcomed their second child.
  • The couple share five-year-old Silas, and welcomed a baby boy, Phineas, in 2020.
  • "He's awesome and so cute, and nobody's sleeping! But we're thrilled," Justin revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

After months of speculation Justin Timberlake himself has confirmed he and Jessica Biel have in fact welcomed a second child – a baby boy!

The couple, who married in 2012 and also share five-year-old Silas, secretly welcomed their second child last year, Channel24 reported.

Now, Justin tells Ellen DeGeneres in a preview of Monday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show: "His name is Phineas, and he's awesome and so cute, and nobody's sleeping! But we're thrilled. We're thrilled and couldn't be happier. Very grateful."

Ellen went on to ask how parenting two children have been for the singer, reports E! News. "We don't see each other anymore." he said.

"It's a lot of fun, but I guess the saying goes, you go from a zone defence to a man-to-man really quickly. Sort of like, 'You go get that one, I'll get this one!'"

On Phineas' big brother, he said: "Silas is super excited."

He added: "Right now, he's very much liking it. Phin can't walk yet or chase him down, so I don't know. We'll see what happens."

The Can't Stop The Feeling hitmaker said Silas is getting "very good at tennis" and is loving life with his new Nintendo Switch, which Justin jokingly refers to as "child crack".
