For Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, becoming parents has come with a fair share of rewarding and challenging moments.
During her October 2 appearance on "TODAY," Biel gushed about their baby son Silas, who was born in April. "He's wonderful. He's just a joy," she said. "It's an amazing, amazing experience."
The actress added, however, that taking care of a baby is not always pure bliss. Parenting is "incredibly hard, the hardest job in the world," she said.
"I've never been more thankful and grateful to my own mother," Biel continued. "Oh, my gosh I'm going to call her right after this actually and just thank her because what you have to do for your kid. It's an amazing responsibility and the biggest joy ever."
When asked if her husband has been involved in the diapers, bottles and late-night wake-ups, Biel replied that Timberlake is a very hands-on dad.
"He is doin' it all," she said. "He is in there, deep."
Cheers to the first-time parents navigating this confusing and deeply rewarding time.
