Backstreets back, all right, but with a baby on board!

A.J. McLean, 34, and wife Rochelle Deanna Karidis announced via Youtube earlier today that they are expecting their first child together.

The couple wed in December 2011 in Beverly Hills.

"I just wanted to say thank you guys for all your love and support. We recently got married—I was the most recent Backstreet Boy to take the plunge," the singer shares with his beautiful wife by his side.

The couple then reveals their exciting news together with excitement and beaming smiles:

"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!"

A.J. showered Rochelle with an elaborate proposal during a live concert in Las Vegas two years ago. The duo then tied the knot on December 17, 2011 and have been going strong ever since.

Congratulations to the happy couple! Meanwhile, the good news just keeps coming for BSB: the band also had a happy announcement of their own over the weekend, announcing that former member Kevin Richardson will be formally rejoining the group after a six-year absence.

Oh, Backstreet's back, all right.
