While Justin Timberlake just welcomed his first baby with wife Jessica Biel, there have already been plenty of "baby"s in his life -- 214, to be exact.

Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel Welcome Baby Boy

Leading up to the birth of Silas Randall Timberlake, Billboard conducted a (wildly scientific) survey of Timberlake's lyrics to see how long he's had baby on the brain. Turns out, for quite some time. Not including 'NSYNC lyrics (because, honestly, who has the time), we counted every appearance of the word "baby" across his four solo albums, including hidden and bonus tracks. Below, find the exhaustive list of all 214 "baby" lyrics, plus these fun facts we learned:

-Justin had a real baby boom (sorry) during The 20/20 Experience, with his top three baby-filled songs all coming from the two-part project:
1. "Pusher Love Girl" (26)
2. "You Got It On" (19)
3. "That Girl" (15)

-Out of 49 songs on four albums, 38 of the tracks -- more than three-quarters of his catalog -- include the word baby.

-JT is not alone: Four of his collaborators -- Timbaland (4), T.I. (3), Snoop Dogg (2) and will.i.am (2) -- also contributed baby lyrics to his songs.
