“I was on the 20/20 Experience tour when my life changed forever,” the 10-time Grammy winner, 37, wrote in his new book, Hindsight: And All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me. “I was in Detroit and pulling a week or two by myself because my wife was working in Los Angeles, but was coming to visit me in a few days. I had just finished a show, and I got into my car and took my phone out.”
Timberlake recalled seeing an all-caps text message from the Golden Globe nominee, 36, that read, “CALL ME NOW.”
“I FaceTimed her back immediately,” he wrote. “She answered with this look on her face, and I knew exactly what she was going to say. Instead, she just held up the pregnancy test, and we both started bawling. I ended the tour early so I could be at home and take care of my family.”
The “Mirrors” singer wrapped up his world tour at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena on January 2, 2015. The concert was filmed for a Netflix special titled Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids.
“Three months later, I was a father,” Timberlake wrote.
Biel gave birth to the couple’s son, Silas Randall, on April 11.
“Having a child has been the pinnacle of my life,” the former ‘NSync member wrote in Hindsight. “The things I have learned from being a father have been profound. It’s made me look at my relationships in a new way. It’s made me think about who my parents are as people, and how that affected me then and has contributed to who I am now — and how all that might affect my child.”
Timberlake and Biel have been married since October 2012.
Hindsight: And All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me is available in bookstores now.
