There's another Backstreet baby on the way!

Yes, I am a huge fan.... Every-bo-day.... Rock your body now! Hehe.

So Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough announced some exciting news on Twitter earlier this week:

“Thanks to family, friends & fans for all the amazing birthday wishes,” he Tweeted. “This year I’m receiving the best gift from my wife: another baby boy!”

Awww, I suppose birthday wishes are in order too! Howie and Leigh are already parents to 3-year-old James Hoke Dorough. When I spoke to Howie last year, he had this to say about parenting James:

I'm enjoying lots of moments. There are definitely moments when he's up two, three, four, five o'clock in the morning that I don't enjoy too much, but fatherhood's teaching me the biggest thing in life to be selfless. I'm finally able to find something that makes me wake up in the morning (besides my wife and the rest of my family) to go to work, and try to be the best role model I can for him, so he can follow my footsteps down the line.

How sweet is that? Congrats to the family!
