A Backstreet Boy member now has a new boy of his own at home.

Kevin Richardson announced yesterday on Facebook that his wife, Kristin Willits, gave birth to a boy named Maxwell Haze at 3:05 a.m. on Wednesday.

The little one has “decided to join the party,” Richardson wrote, adding: “He is a stout 9 lbs., 8 oz. / 23 inches long. Love! Love! Love!”

And while less fanfare may accompany this birth than the forthcoming Kate Middleton baby, come on, people. It’s still exciting!


Richardson and Willits are also the parents to a six-year old named Mason, while Maxwell marks the SIXTH overall kid for members of The Backstreet Boys.

Yes, we feel very old all of a sudden.

The group is in the middle of its In a World Like This Tour and will next perform August 2 at the Charter One Pavilion in Chicago.
