Insert your New Kid on the Block joke here, because Joey McIntyre and his wife just had a baby.

The former boybander's missus, Barrett, welcomed a baby girl to their family yesterday, joining older brothers Griffin, 3 and Rhys, 17 months.

Their new bundle of joy weighed in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces, and measured 21 inches head to toe.

And as for her name? Did McIntyre enter her into the weird baby names club?

Nope, mom and dad kept it normal, naming her Kira Katherine McIntyre.

Dad took to Twitter to describe his new little lady as "a beautiful baby girl with great timing and gorgeous hair."

The couple had kept the sex of the baby under wraps for a while, until McIntyre spilled the beans to a number of New Kids on the Block fans traveling along with the group on their Carnival cruise in May.

The couple's new baby comes after some tough times with son Rhys, who was born with severe hearing loss. They've spoken extensively about his condition, saying he gets weekly therapy sessions with a verbal therapist and that hearing aids have improved his condition.

Congrats to the big happy family on the new addition!
