There’s going to be another new kid on the block: Joey McIntyre announced that his wife Barrett is expecting their second child – a boy – in December.
“I still can’t get over it,” says the singer, 36, who also has 20-month-old son Griffin. “We feel so blessed.”
Apparently the McIntyres were convinced they were having a girl, then were shocked when they found out they were adding another boy to the brood. McIntyre, who had his daughter’s name picked out, says he’s hardly disappointed. “It’s going to be a trip to have a couple of boys around.”
The toddler has also inspired Daddy to start a book drive through the Let’s Get This Foundation. While on the road, McIntyre and the rest of the New Kids have collected thousands of new children’s books and distributed them to children in need in various cities.
But the big question remains: Will his family grow to include nine kids? “I think we have a deal to keep going until we have a girl,” says McIntyre with a laugh. “That’s what my wife says.”
