‘Tis the season for sharing family photos.
Jessica Biel shared two rare pics of her and husband Justin Timberlake strolling along a dirt road with their two sons for Christmas Day.
“Thankful for my guys… Merry Christmas everybody!! 🎁🎄,”
the actress, 39, wrote on Instagram.
In the pics, Biel carried their 1-year-old son, Phineas, while Silas, 6, and Timberlake strolls on opposite sides.
Mom and dad kept the family attire casual for the outing, making sure everyone was packaged from the chilly winter weather.
“Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family🎄🎅🏼🎁,”
one fan wrote in the comments section, with another adding,
“That’s what [it’s like] to live in the country 😍.”
The family of four put the big city life behind them as they apparently moved to Timberlake’s home state of Tennessee and listed their $35 million Los Angeles mansion in October.
Timberlake, 40, and his wife have posted very few photos of their children over the years for privacy sake.
The “Can’t Stop The Feeling”
singer shared an infrequent glimpse at his boys in a Father’s Day post in advance this year. In the snap, Timberlake could be spotted playing a video game with Silas sitting by his side and baby Phineas staring up at at the television.
“Being a dad is better than I ever could have imagined,”
he wrote at the time.
“Thankful to my dads and my grandfathers for leading the way, making the sacrifices for me to live out my dreams, and for teaching me that REAL LIFE happens in all the little moments.”
“Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!!!”
The year started out especially hard for Timberlake, who issued a public apology to his ex, Britney Spears, and fellow singer Janet Jackson following receiving backlash from the New York Times’
“Framing Britney Spears”
documentary. The unauthorized project proposed Timberlake played a huge part in the disarrangement of their careers.
“I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed,”
he wrote in a lengthy Instagram post at the time.
“I also feel compelled to respond, in part, because everyone involved deserves better and most importantly, because this is a larger conversation that I wholeheartedly want to be part of and grow from.”
Biel stood by his side throughout the backlash, even commenting “I love you” on his apology post.
