Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean has lots of music in his future … of the lullaby variety! The singer and his wife Rochelle DeAnna Karidis, who wed late last year, announced that they’re expecting their first baby.

Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough and his wife Leigh have announced that they are expecting their first child together. Dorough told PEOPLE, “I know she’s going to be a great mother. If she can take care of me, the biggest baby in the entire world, I think she’s going to be okay with the little one coming along.”
The couple married in 2007 and have enjoyed traveling together before settling down to start a family. They are waiting until birth to find out the baby’s gender and are eager to put together a gender-neutral nursery. Their new arrival will have plenty of playmates–Dorough’s bandmates Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson both have young sons.
