Justin Timberlake, PhD in Bringing Sexy Back, has a 13-month old son named Silas with Jessica Biel. But unlike the Norths of the world, this kid has a verrrrry low-key presence on social media. The former NSYNC member is known for being protective of his child's privacy, which is tough given the fact that he and Biel are celebrities.

"You think a lot about the lives that me and my wife lead, but I wonder what privacy's going to mean in 20 years?" Justin recently told The Today Show (opens in new tab). "Those are the questions that enter my mind for sure, but I think that's something that you don't have control over."

Silas is only 13-months-old, and at this point the only thing he has a say in is "eggs or bananas." But that'll change eventually, and in the meantime Justin will attempt to give his kid a dose of reality: "The best thing I can do is to try every day to give your kid perspective so they understand what it means and what it doesn't mean."

While children of celebrities rarely lead entirely private lives, Silas is clearly in the best hands ever.
