A huge congratulations is in order for Backstreet Boys singer AJ McLean and his wife Rochelle who just welcomed their second daughter into the world. The couple is already parents to 4-year-old Ava Jaymes.
A representative for the family told People magazine that the bundle of joy was born in Los Angeles, California on Sunday, March 19th, 2017 at 5:10 p.m. She weight 8 lbs., 3 oz. and was 22 inches long. Not only that, but AJ and Rochelle have already released the name and it's super unique! So what did they decide? Lyric Dean Mclean. This is so adorable and we're super excited for the growing family!
AJ isn't one to hold back when it comes to having children. He told People exclusively, "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."
He continued, "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."
Aww! This is super cute. We have a feeling Ava is already the best big sister ever. As for what it's going to be like with three women in the house now, AJ said, "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."
He is seriously the best dad ever. The BSB hunk documents Ava's life on social media and there's no doubt about it that he's going to do the same with Lyric. AJ posted this photo on Instagram with the caption, "My ride or die homie. Daddy loves you baby."
Too freaking precious! We can't wait to see the next selfie with both of his girls in it. AJ nor Rochelle have yet to put up any photos of Lyric but that most likely because she was just born yesterday. Our fingers are crossed that she makes her big debut on social media over the course of the next couple of days.
Until then, congratulations again AJ, Rochelle, and Ava!
