A.J. McLean has a baby on the way! The happy news comes courtesy of the Backstreet Boys star himself, in a video posted to Youtube on Sunday.
“I just wanted to say thank you guys for all your love and support,” A.J. McLean, cuddling on a step with new wife Rochelle Karadis tells viewers. “We recently got married — I was the most recent Backstreet Boy to take the plunge.”
Along with a few words of further thanks, the 34-year-old goes on to say, “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!”
It was in January of 2010 that A.J. McLean proposed during a concert to the woman who is now carrying his child, and the pair tied the knot on Dec. 17, 2011. He has also publicly given her credit for helping him find sobriety, tweeting previously, “You are my whole world and I cannot wait to spend my life with you. Without you here, I am lost!”
