A.J. McLean and wife welcome second child
Backstreet Boys star A.J. McLean and his wife, Rochelle, have welcomed their second child together.
Rochelle gave birth to a baby girl this week, his rep confirmed to People magazine.
According to the publication, the couple named their daughter, Lyric Dean McLean and the little girl weighed in at 8 lbs., 3 oz. and measured 22 inches long.
The couple already have one daughter together, Ava Jaymes, 4.
The singer told the publication:
“I was told by someone very dear to me that having a child will change you forever, and that was beyond true with Ava. We decided to try one more time because even though Ava is so independent, the idea of having a sister or brother for her became more and more important to us,”
“Despite the fact that I’m an only child (and all jokes aside) turned out OK, my wife is one of four and that showed me there’s something beyond special about having siblings. Now, seeing the excitement and anticipation that Ava has about being a big sister is truly amazing, and the best feeling in the world. She’s been practicing for months with her dolls, and with some of my wife’s friends’ babies.”
“Having two baby girls is a dream come true and we couldn’t be any more proud or excited to welcome Lyric Dean McLean into the world and into our family.”
