Backstreet baby on the way for A.J. McLean!

I'm not the only one around the Today's Parent office who loves the Backstreet Boys, I'll tell you that much. Ergo, I'm guessing a lot of you Gorgeouses love them too. So, guess WHAT?

A.J. McLean (whose voice is probably my favourite in the band), 34, and his wife, Rochelle DeAnna Karidis, are having a baby!

They made the big announcement yesterday on YouTube. CHECKIT (it's sweet)!

In the video, A.J. and Rochelle share that they were recently married (December 17, 2011), making him "the most recent Backstreet Boy to take the plunge.”  And because he loves us too (yay!), A.J. also announced the big baby news: “Because we love you all so much, we wanted to share with you — for the first time — something very special. We’re having a baby!”

I actually met Howie Dorough from the Backstreet boys at TIFF last year, and he shared some words about parenting his then-two-year-old. Checkit, my fellow Backstreet Boy fans #youknowyoulovethemtoo! And if you refuse to believe that you, too, are a fan, take a listen....


LOVE! xo Haley-O
