Backstreet Boys’ A.J. McLean Welcomes Daughter
Congrats to Backstreet Boys member A.J. McLean, who just launched his Skullee Rose clothing line. He and wife, makeup artist Rochelle Deanna Karidis, welcomed their first child, daughter Ava Jaymes, on Tuesday, Nov. 27.
McLean, who is the bearded, edgy member of the boy band and who is rarely seen without his shades, is over the moon about the new (and pink!) addition to the family, telling InTouch (quotes via WENN), "We are all doing well and are thrilled to welcome Ava to the world."
McLean and Karidis married in December, and at the time, the singer revealed that he and his new bride wanted to get started on expanding their Backstreet family on the quick. And that's just what they did.
PopCrush extends a warm and fuzzy congrats to the McLean family on the birth of little Ava Jaymes. We need to see pictures right away, A.J. Get on that, since we are willing to bet that little Ava is gorgeous. She's a lucky little girl, with Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough and Nick Carter as uncles!
