Backstreet Boy AJ McLean Had a Daughter (and Her Name Is Musical)
Backstreet Boy AJ McLean just confirmed to People Magazine that he’s a dad again after he and his wife Rochelle welcomed a baby girl on Sunday. Her name — Lyric Dean McLean — is inspired, considering BSB’s own legendary lyrics. To cap off the sweet news, McLean’s wife took to Twitter to celebrate.
Little Lyric joins sister Ava Jaymes, who is four. And while Ava is definitely the apple of her father’s eye, having more than one child was important for the couple. “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,” he said in an interview with People. “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.”
He adds, “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.”
