A.J. married his wife Rochelle DeAnna in December 2011. At the time, A.J. said, “I think we’ll be married for about three years before we have kids.” Well, the stork decided to come early.
Then in April, he and Rochelle posted a YouTube video announcing that they were expecting! They didn’t say whether it was a boy or girl but shared the news with all his loyal Backstreet Boys fans.
“Because we love you all so much, we wanted to share with you, for the first time, something very special. We’re having a baby!”
Then, in a similar fashion, A.J. released a video late last night to his socialcam account announcing that the happy couple were expecting a girl!
“We have some baby news,” A.J. says in the video, “I’ve been all around the world, I’ve met my best friend, but guess what, we’re having a girl! A little girl named Ava Jaymes.”
They are naming the girl Ava Jaymes. His name is A.J., short for Alexander James. How cute that his daughter is inheriting his moniker.
Most of the other Backstreet Boys have kids, but none of them have had girls…until now!
Brian Littrell has one child, a son Baylee. Howie Dorough has a son named James. Kevin Richardson has a son named Mason.
This is the first child for A.J. and Rochelle.
