Backstreet Boys singer A.J. and wife Rochelle welcomed baby Ava Jaymes into the world on Nov. 27! Congrats!
The Backstreet Boys may be busy rehearsing songs for their new album, but member A.J. McLean is going to have to add some lullabies to his song list! His wife Rochelle gave birth to baby daughter Ava Jaymes on Nov. 27 in Los Angeles.
A.J., 34, wrote on his website, “Rochelle and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our baby. 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.”
The pop star and his wife took to YouTube back in April to announce the pregnancy in a video for fans. “I just wanted to say thank you guys for all your love and support…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,” A.J. said.
Just as A.J. and his BSB buddies have kept fans waiting for new music, Ava kept her parents waiting, as well. On Sunday, Nov. 25 — the expected due date — Rochelle tweeted her impatience. “Come on AVA!!! It never takes Mommy this long to get ready!” she wrote. “Being punctual is a great quality to have!! Now come out so we can see you!!”
Congrats, A.J. and Rochelle!
