There’s a new report that claims celebrity couple Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel will not be vaccinating their 7-month-old son, Silas. Now, before you start pointing your fingers, let me clarify that this hasn’t been confirmed and even though it is just a rumor, it’s still a topic that a lot of parents talk about as more and more opt to not vaccinate their kids in our country.
According to In Touch Weekly on Friday, a supposed source close to the Hollywood couple claims that Jessica is refusing to vaccinate her baby boy because she feels that vaccinations can lead to complications.
(If you can’t help but picture Jenny McCarthy in your head right now, don’t worry, because that’s exactly what I’m doing right now, too).
The insider added, “I’m sure Jessica believes that she’s making the right decision, but hopefully she and Justin will do some more research on this and change their minds.”
If Jessica does go down this route, she’s not alone as other famous celebrity moms such as Jenny, Alicia Silverstone and Kristin Cavallari have all decided not to vaccinate their children, either.
Now, whatever your thoughts are on this, I will say that I am a firm believer in modern science, keeping my children healthy and out of danger, and mostly, common sense. I cannot and will not judge parents who think differently than me, but for the sake of their children I do hope that they are putting their kids’ health and safety first, and their personal beliefs second.
