Actress Jessica Biel admitted she had to relearn the basics after welcoming her second son, Phineas, last year, five years after welcoming her first.
In a recent episode of "Today with Hoda & Jenna," Jessica Biel, 38, revealed she had to learn the basics again after welcoming her second son, Phineas last year with her husband Justin Timberlake, 39.
During the interview, Biel touched on life as a parent to two boys, how the siblings are getting on, welcoming her second son during the COVID-19 pandemic, and her new wellness brand, Kinderfarms.

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.' "

Of course, Phineas is now a year old, so Biel and Timberlake definitely made it through relearning the basics. Biel gushed about her boys and how well they get on together.
The doting mother explained that her oldest son Silas is an amazing brother and thinks Phineas is hilarious. Whereas Pihnaes is besotted with his older brother and truly thinks he is the bee's knees.
In January, Timberlake confirmed the news of their second child while on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."
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."
Biel explained that although it was a bizarre experience, it had its perks as the family experienced the pregnancy and birth privately. In January, Timberlake confirmed the news of their second child while on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."
The father of two gushed about his newborn then and described him as cute and awesome. He also made sure to share that no one was getting any sleep with the new baby around.
Timberlake did reveal that parenting dynamics had changed slightly as the couple found themselves splitting up to deal with one child while the other handled the second.
The couple welcomed their first child in 2015, three years after they married in a romantic ceremony in Italy. The couple seems in love as ever as they continue to gush over each other on their respective social media accounts.
