He said of life for him and Biel: "We don't see each other any more.

Timberlake added that Silas was enjoying being a big brother but that “Phin can’t walk yet or chase him down”, so that might change.

The couple kept their pregnancy news private, only telling close family that they were expecting again.

However, close friend DeGeneres was one of the few people who knew about the pregnancy after they shared their news with her on a FaceTime call.

In 2018, Biel spoke to Entertainment Tonight about wanting a bigger family, saying: "Kids are amazing. They are really hard, but they are really amazing.

"I think it would be amazing to have a bigger family. I don't know if that is in the cards for us, we will see."
