Hoda Kotb, who is a mother to two young children herself, shared that when she welcomed her youngest Hope, she had to relearn the basics of caring for a new baby, so she asked Biel if she experienced the same thing.

"The Illusionist" actress eagerly agreed and admitted that she experienced the same thing. She shared that she had to relearn when he could eat real foods and what products to use. She explained to the hosts:

"I started from scratch all over again and I didn't expect that. I just sort of thought, 'Well I'm an expert now. I've done this before and I can do it again.' "

Biel and Timberlake welcomed him in the pandemic, and many fans were not aware that the actress was even pregnant. Biel admitted to Jenna Bush Hager and Kotb that people not knowing of the pregnancy was an accident.

She explained that when the COVID-19 pandemic happened, she and her family moved to Montana to be with her family and never returned, so no one ever found out. The actress explained:

"Everything sort of happened and we left town and we never returned, and then we had this beautiful baby."
