It’s official: The boy bands we worshipped in our youth are all grown up. Though they may still be performing our favorite ‘00s hits (have you caught the Backstreet Boys in Vegas yet?), many of the former teen heartthrobs from the various groups we loved (*NSYNC, Backstreet, 98 Degrees) have gone on to start families of their own, including working dad JT, Nick Carter, Nick Lachey, and now, AJ McLean.
Another former member of *NSYNC will also soon be on that list, as Chris Kirkpatrick and his wife Karly have just announced that they’re expecting. The couple, who wed back in 2013, dropped the big news on unsuspecting fans over on Facebook with a cheeky nod to the upcoming Boss Baby film, which, incidentally, hits theaters the same month that the Kirkpatricks just so happen to be expecting.
“There is a new boss coming to town in early October,” Karly captioned the cute snap. Chris confirmed the news to People, saying, “Karly and I are over the moon excited that we are welcoming a new addition to the family. We are both looking forward to becoming parents, and learning how much fun having a child will be.”
Perhaps he can hit up his old bandmates and fathers Joey Fatone (who has two children of his own) and Justin Timberlake for advice? After all, as he once told People, they WERE rather handy when it came to giving wedding tidings. “Justin and Joey were giving me wedding advice,” he admitted after his big day. “I’m the oldest one of us, and I never thought I’d be getting… advice from Justin Timberlake.”
We smell play dates!
