During a new interview, Jessica Biel broke her silence about their youngest addition to the family, a son they named Phineas! Furthermore, she also opened up about her experience delivering the child amid a pandemic and how scary that really was.
Jessica Biel appeared on the latest episode of actor Dax Shepard’s podcast, Armchair Expert, and mentioned their youngest child publicly for the first time since she gave birth to him last year.
As you might know, baby Phineas is basically a toddler already since his first birthday is right around the corner but his parents usually prefer to keep all the details regarding their children under wraps and away from the prying eyes of the public.
Now, she told Shepard that ‘I had, like, a secret COVID baby. It wasn’t supposed to be a secret. It was just that COVID happened, and then I went to Montana with my family and just never left.’
Since it took place amid the pandemic, giving birth to Phineas was a pretty unique experience that Jessica was willing to talk about on the podcast.
She recalled that ‘There was a moment there that there was no one allowed at all and I was getting very nervous about that situation. But yes, he was allowed. I think that if I had to be there alone, that would’ve been horrible. I would’ve been really scared.’
This comes after Justin’s pal, R&B legend Brian McKnight, shared the news of Phineas’ arrival via HollywoodLife in January.
Then, the singer also confirmed his arrival while a guest on Ellen that same month, which is also when he shared the tot’s name!
About having two kids in his life, Justin said at the time that it is a ‘lot of fun’ but a lot of work as well, of course.
‘It’s great. Silas is super excited,’ he went on to add.
