Justin Timberlake Stopped His Concert To Announce A Fan's Pregnancy
For the millions of Justin Timberlake fans around the world, writing a list of reasons why they love the iconic singer is going to be pretty difficult. Sure, he makes awesome music and, most likely, that reason will top the list. Probably, he’s actually a pretty nice guy.

During this year’s Super Bowl half-time show, he once again showed how in touch he is with his fans. What started out as an unplanned selfie with 13-year-old Ryan McKenna turned out to be a viral sensation.
Here’s the selfie that 13-year-old Ryan McKenna took on his iPhone with Justin Timberlake during the halftime of the Super Bowl. "I just went for it," he said. McKenna is a Patriots fan from Hingham, Mass. and is already scheduled to be on Good Morning America tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/oaxx3aaPEq

The lucky teen who jumped at the opportunity when Timberlake randomly waked up to him became an overnight celebrity. He even scored an interview with Good Morning America. Talk about gleaming off the Timberlake shine.
Timberlake’s epic baby announcement
As if he couldn’t outdo himself, Timberlake took the niceness up a notch during his performance. While he was performing on stage during the half-time show, he noticed a woman holding a sign.
Timberlake then went over to the woman and grabbed the sign which reportedly read "Will you help me announce my pregnancy?". And yes, he did. Timberlake actually stopped the show to make the announcement.
Darcell Baxtresser was overwhelmed with excitement by the announcement even as thousands of fans at the U.S. Bank Stadium were screaming and making their own videos. And Baxtresser’s phone literally blew up with messages from family and friends who saw the announcement.
For Baxtresser, this was a dream come true. She confessed to E! News, "I’ve loved him since I was 6 years old so if I wanted anyone in the world to announce it, it was him,” Go Timberlake!
On tour with the family
Justin Timberlake took off on his “Man of the Woods” tour, starting off with North America. And he’s got some company, wife Jessica Biel, and 2-year-old son, Silas. The 37-year-old singer posted this photo of the family on Instagram as they hit the road.
Goin’ on tour. #MOTWTOUR
Its common knowledge that Timberlake is a total softie when it comes to his family. The Cry Me a River singer is always gushing about Jessica Biel, even during performances. And trust Jessica to reciprocate.
There’s nothing better than watching your man do what they’ve been put on this earth to do. I’m so proud of you, man of the woods! #MOTWTOUR
And knowing Timberlake, he’s probably going to pull off another nice-guy move on tour. Fingers crossed.
