Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean is a dad!

It's a Backstreet girl! (Bygones....)

Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean, 34, and his wife, Rochelle, welcomed their first child — a girl! — yesterday (Tuesday, November 27), in Los Angeles. And the name is...

Ava Jaymes McLean

Get it? It's another A.J. McLean!

A.J. (the dad, of course) announced the news on his official website.

"Rochelle and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our baby," he writes. "She arrived at 4:51 a.m. weighing 7 lbs., 7 oz. We are so in love with our bundle of joy and happy to have started our family now.”

Rochelle also got on Twitter during labour to share baby's reluctance to come out: “Come on AVA!!!" she tweeted. "It never takes Mommy this long to get ready! Being punctual is a great quality to have!! Now, come out so we can see you!!”

Congrats to the family!

DISCUSS: Do you and your kids have the same initials? Did you give your child a name that reflects your own?
