While Justin and Jess have shared snippets from their family life with Silas, fans were unaware of how stressed the new parents had been by his birth. In The Nannie Connie Way: Secrets to Mastering the First Four Months of Parenthood the couple revealed they worked with Connie after their son’s stressful arrival. The stars explained that they had planned a “natural” home birth and had turned their Hollywood home into a “labor training facility.”

In an excerpt published by Entertainment Tonight, Justin and Jessica claimed they had “two midwives, one doula, one meditation birthing class,” and had read “a ton of hippie baby books” to prepare for the birth. However, when Jess went into labor, it didn’t go according to plan.

The couple revealed that when Silas’ arrival became more complicated and Jessica was forced to deliver via a C-section in hospital. Describing the circumstances around the birth, the actress wrote: “When all our plans fell apart and the serene, natural childbirth we had envisioned ended with a transfer to the hospital and an emergency C-section, we arrived home exhausted, disillusioned, and totally in shock.”

Admitting the experience sent her into panic, Jessica continued: “I was obsessed with everything organic, toxin-free, natural, and homeopathic for our kid, who came into this world in an operating room through an incision. I was a dictator, making myself and my husband insane!” Thankfully, Silas is a happy, healthy baby who will celebrate his third birthday this year.

Baby Number Two?

While harrowing, the birth hasn’t put the stars off having another child. When asked about adding to the Timberlake family, Justin recently confessed they want as “many kids as we can.”

Speaking to BBC Radio 1‘s Zane Lowe, the singer claimed he can’t even remember life before being a daddy: “My wife and I … when we have a night off and we get into bed and we sit down and watch a movie or something, we’re like, ‘What did we do before this? Did we go out to dinner? Were we at a bar? What did we do before this?’ ”
