Kevin Richardson welcomes second boy
Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson announced that his wife gave birth to their second son on Wednesday.
The 41-year-old musician and his wife Kristin celebrated the arrival of their tot on Wednesday.
According to People magazine baby Maxwell is a “stout” infant who weighed in at 9lbs 8oz and measured 23in long.
The newborn came into the world at 3.05am July 10 and the parents couldn’t be more elated with their new arrival.
“Special delivery! Another Richardson boy … Maxwell Haze Richardson decided to join the party,” Kevin gushed on Facebook. “Love! Love! Love!”
The couple announced Kristin’s expectancy via the internet in April.
They credited a mystical holiday creature with the blessing of a new child.
“So excited to share … The Easter Bunny brought a very special egg this year,” Kevin wrote on his Twitter account at the time.
The couple married in 2000 and also share a six-year-old son named Mason.
It’s a big year for the Backstreet Boys both personally and professionally.
Howie Dorough welcomed a son in February and bandmate A.J. McLean welcomed a daughter in November.
The group recently reunited with Kevin, who quit the band back in 2006 but announced he was re-joining the group last summer after a six-year hiatus.
Backstreet Boys is now making a comeback with a documentary, album and world tour all in the works.
"We always wanted to make a film and now is the ideal time - with Kevin back, the fact that we are masters of our own destiny, a new album in the works and our 20th anniversary all adds up to being the right time to share our story," the band said in a statement late last year.
Rolling Stones documentarian Stephen Kijak is helming Backstreet Boys – The Movie.
