The "SexyBack" later hopped into the comments section on Bass' video post to explain why he didn't pick up. "Once those babies show up... your unavailability will all make sense, bro," he explained with three laughing-crying emojis. Responded Bass, who is expecting twins: "Touche!"
After Timberlake's response, Bass shared a video of himself on TikTok and Instagram Stories that showed him dancing. Over it, he wrote, "When JT finally responds to my text..." with a screengrab of the Trolls voice actor's comment below.
Timberlake and wife Jessica Biel welcomed their second child, Phineas, in 2020. Son Silas was born in 2015, three years after the couple married.
Bass announced in June that he and husband Michael Turchin are expecting a boy and a girl in November. "It has been quite the journey," Bass told People magazine at the time. The pair had been trying to have children for years via surrogacy, and suffered a miscarriage. "Because of what we've been through the last four years, we were very cautious to get excited. And it kind of sucks because when you find out you're pregnant, you want to celebrate with your family. You start planning their future in your head already, but we were so scared because we didn't want to go through the pain again of losing them."
Since its release, Celebrity has sold more than five million copies, certified five-times platinum by the RIAA by August 2001. It also spent 43 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart, peaking at No. 1 in August 2001.
