Jessica Biel explained why she “really” doesn’t want her son to be a musician like Justin Timberlake

In reality, you’d be hard-pressed to find any mother who wants their child to be a struggling artist. Jessica Biel — mother to baby son Silas — is no different. In a recent interview with, Biel said she doesn’t want Silas to be a musician like his famous dad, Justin Timberlake. She confessed that even though her son is only two years old, she’s already worried about his future.

Beil said,

"I would like our baby to inherit Justin’s charm and his sense of humor. There are many qualities I’d love him to get from Justin. But there’s one thing I don’t want for him. I really don’t want him to be a musician."

Biel noted the fact that, of course, she will support her son in any career path he chooses. But after watching her husband’s journey, Biel wants her son to have a different kind of life. She continued,

"...the music business is really tough. I watch what Justin goes through and he is at the top of his game. He has access to work with any producer, and he can actually get songs on the radio...he tours and makes it look very easy, but he’s been working for years and years and years to get to where he is."

The Sinner actress went on to say, “I already have this image of [Silas] as a struggling musician and that’s like, ‘Oh my God!’ As a mom, you think 30 years into the future and you’re like, ‘How do I fix this for him?’ I just want him to be like an engineer or a doctor, something like that.”

Now that she’s filming her new show, Biel said that Timberlake has taken on a good deal of the parenting duties…which very well may rub off on baby Silas.

No matter what he becomes — doctor, lawyer or world famous musician — we have a feeling good things are in this little guy’s future!
