Justin Timberlake Helped One Fan Make A Big Announcement During His Concert

"A truly special memory I will forever cherish."

Justin Timberlake made a fan's dream come true during his concert in Detroit Monday night when he helped her announce that she's pregnant — and it was all caught on video.

Darcell Baxtresser was in the front row of the show with her friends, holding up a sign that read, "Will you help me announce my pregnancy to my family?" Timberlake caught sight of the message and was happy to oblige, coming closer to grab the sign.


"I gotta stop the show for a second," the singer told the crowd, reading aloud the sign's message and sharing that "Baby Baxtresser" is "arriving November 1, 2018." He even took it upon himself to nickname the future bundle of joy "Baby Bax." 

Timberlake, who previously crashed a couple's wedding, held up the sign triumphantly as the crowd cheered. He then shared his congratulations to Baxtresser and her husband. 

The mom-to-be posted video of the moment on Facebook. "This was the most amazing, magical, unforgettable moment I have ever had in my life!!! My first love to announce my pregnancy was crazy!!!" she wrote in the caption, adding, "A truly special memory I will forever cherish!!"

Baxtresser also shared with E! News that she's loved Timberlake since she was 6 years old. "I really only expected him to see it and, at best, take a picture with it, but I did not at all expect him to stop the show, literally." 

"As soon as it happened, cousins and friends who were at the show were blowing up my phone, so I figured I had to tell my family right away," she added. "I group texted my siblings and parents the video and they were all going nuts. I sent it to my husband and he was just like 'Oh wow!!'"

She also shared that Timberlake is "more than welcome" to be the baby's godfather, although he or she apparently won't be named after him. Might we suggest Silas if it's a boy?
