Justin Timberlake Shares Extremely Rare Photos of Son Silas

Justin Timberlake just shared four—we repeat, four—rare photos of his 5-year-old son, Silas.

Over the weekend, the 39-year-old singer posted a slideshow on Instagram, featuring never-before-seen pictures that were taken throughout Silas’s childhood.

The slideshow features four different pics, none of which show Silas’s face. Still, each photo displays a special father-son moment, ranging from a private sound check to a stare-off at a soccer game.

We’re not totally surprised by the choice of pictures, since Timberlake and his wife, Jessica Biel, rarely share photos of Silas. The only snaps we’ve seen of the child’s face are occasional paparazzi photos, like when Silas was spotted sporting a man bun back in 2017.

Timberlake accompanied the slideshow with an inspiring caption, which read: “Boys grow up to be fathers. I think about that a lot these days. We try to teach our son to love and to respect everyone—we teach him that all people are all created equal, and that no one should be treated differently because of the color of their skin. We teach him this because one day, he will go on to teach his kids the same. It’s a cycle. And right now, as we all work to undo generations of discrimination that have plagued our system and our communities across this country… I’m reminded today that the first lessons start at home.”

The “Cry Me a River” singer concluded with a special message for dads everywhere, adding, “Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there. While we owe our sons and daughters these lessons in the places where the doors close at night, I hope you are as inspired as I am to make them THE TRUTH in the places that same door opens every morning and we send them out to discover. There’s more to do. And we are built for it. After all, we are the Dads. Sending my love to you and yours.”
