Justin Timberlake Struggling With Full-Time Parenting During Coronavirus Lockdown

The NSYNC star says 24-hour parenting is 'just not human' as he and wife Jessica Biel are self-isolating with their little kid Silas amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

AceShowbiz - The coronavirus lockdown has made Justin Timberlake realise how tough it is to be a full-time parent, insisting it's "just not human."

The pop superstar shares son Silas with his wife, actress Jessica Biel, and he admits life in isolation at their home in Montana has taken a little getting used to.

"We're doing good (sic)," he told SiriusXM's Hits 1 show about how the family is coping.

Joking about the couple's parenting struggles, Timberlake quipped, "We're mostly commiserating over the fact that just 24-hour parenting is just not human."

And the singer/actor confesses even his kid occasionally gets annoyed at having to spend all his time with mum and dad.

"He gets a look... I'm like, 'All right, cool, let's take a (break)...,'" Timberlake said. "Just a commercial break."

Luckily, the family-of-three's Montana getaway has been the perfect location for isolation. "We're in a place where they're pretty socially distant here anyway, where our place is, and so just being able to walk out into your driveway and maybe go for a little hike is always nice," he continued, adding they feel "very lucky and blessed" to still be able to enjoy the great outdoors.

Timberlake and Biel spent their Wednesday, April 8, 2020 showering Silas with birthday love as he turned five, and "The Sinner" actress took to Instagram to share how they were celebrating the special day.

Alongside a photo of mother and child from last summer 2019, Biel wrote, "This little man is 5 today! We're at home, covered in legos (sic) and birthday cake right now..."

Revealing they would also be making a charity donation in their boy's honour to help those in need during the coronavirus pandemic, she continued, "To celebrate his big birthday, we're supporting @savethechildren and @feedingamerica, who are doing so much good work to keep kids and families healthy and fed during this time... Sending lots of love to you all..."

They join the likes of Ciara and her husband, American footballer Russell Wilson, Kristen Bell, Matthew McConaughey, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and George Clooney and Amal in digging deep to support food charities and other vital organisations during the global health crisis.
