After tying the knot last December, A.J. McLean and his wife Rochelle Karidis welcomed their first child into the world.
Ava Jaymes was born at 4:51am in Los Angeles, weighing in at 7 lbs, 7 oz. On Tuesday, the 34-year-old singer posted a birth announcement on Twitter, calling her "our baby monkee."
The proud papa was anxious for his little girl to arrive, tweeting last week, "I am so thankful for my family my amazing perfect wife and the most beautiful baby girl thats almost here finally! !!!"
Back in April, the Backstreet Boy announced the pregnancy in a YouTube video, where he appeared with his make-up artist wife saying, "Because we love you all so much, we wanted to share with you — for the first time — something very special."
