When JT dropped his 2-year-old off at playgroup on the weekend, the pair obviously got down to some important dad-kid creative brainstorming…
While JT and his wife, actor Jessica Biel tend to keep their 2-year-old son Silas away from the prying eyes of the media, they do occasionally provide some insight into how the parenting experience is for them.
Take yesterday for instance. Justin uploaded a winning, kid-tinged selfie that not only offers a glimpse into his life as a dad, it provides a fetching accessorial suggestion. If accessorial is even a word.
The image (above) depicts the singer wearing some rather snazzy glasses, and as you can see they’re the kind that preschoolers fashion – and favour – the most. Justin captioned the photo with an explanation revealing he’d lingered at drop-off and got a little more than he bargained for. He seemed to like that a lot:
“When you’re the only Dad at the mid-morning play-class, if you stay any longer than 20 minutes… THIS IS YOUR FATE. #dadlife” he posted alongside the snazzy spectacle shot.
We really don’t blame him for capturing his on-trend self for posterity. You have to admit that these glasses are kind of awesome. The fact that they make their wearer’s eyes look like they are in different states obviously did not deter this dad-of-one. It’s the journey that matters most, not the destination, FYI.
“The best thing in the world”
Justin and actor Jessica Biel began dating in 2007 and went on to marry in 2012. Silas, was born in April 2015.
The singer recently revealed that those early days of parenting proved more challenging than he’d envisaged.
“At first, it broke me down,” he said. “Those first eight months felt like those old [Ed Sullivan] shows where people are balancing spinning plates on poles — except if you drop one, they die.”
But, as most parents quickly realise, the good bits almost always make up for those trickier times. JT is finding those good bits utterly delightful.
“Watching [Silas] jump around to ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling!’ starting to learn words because of that song — it’s the best thing in the world,” Justin revealed.

You make me laugh. You make me smile. You make me LOVE. You make me want to be BETTER. Speaking of, it doesn't get any BETTER than you… Now, I know for sure that it's BETTER to be lucky than good. Ask me who the luckiest guy in the world is and I will tell you that you are looking at him. Happy Birthday, my heart. –J
