Back in the early days of the Internet, if a celebrity couple wanted to debut a photo of their child to the world, they had to go the traditional route: run a photo in a paper or magazine or even go through a cover shoot. But some, like Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, are forgoing all that and just posting the first official photo themselves.

Biel gave birth to the couple’s first child, a son named Silas Randall Timberlake, on April 11. Just over a week later, baby Silas is already making his social media debut and for a good cause. Timberlake’s hometown basketball team, the Memphis Grizzlies, made it to the playoffs; Timberlake is part owner of the team.

With Biel smiling and holding him—and potentially wearing some Grizzlies gear of her own—baby Silas is ready to take on the world. Or at least get ready for naptime.

Silas has a few years ahead of him before he decides whether he’s actually a Grizzlies fan (or if he even likes basketball), but we’ve seen what happens when you don’t support your parents’ team.
