Backstreet's back all right!—with a baby boy.

Kevin Richardson took to Facebook today to announce the birth of his second son, Maxwell Haze Richardson.

"Special delivery! Another Richardson boy... At 3:05am Wednesday morning (7/10/13), Maxwell Haze Richardson decided to join the party," Richardson writes. "He is a stout 9 lbs. 8 oz. / 23 inches long. Love! Love! Love!"

Richardson and his wife Kristin Kay Willits have been married since 2000 and welcomed their first son, Mason Frey, back in 2007. It wasn't until this past April that the former boybander tweeted the news of his wife's second pregnancy.

The new father-of two has had a lot going on. Just last year, he rejoined Brian Littrell, Nick Carter Howie Dorough and AJ McLean after his separation from the group for almost six years. Not long after the reunion, the band announced on Good Morning America that they would be releasing their first studio album with Richardson since his departure.

The new album, titled "In A World Like This," is scheduled to be released on July 30 followed by the official world tour kickoff on Aug. 2 in Chicago.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Backstreet Boys, and it looks to be a successful year for the band. In April, the boys received the 2,485th star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame. The honor even brought tears to Carter's eyes as he told the crowd,  "I never ever imagined in a million years that we would be a part of this."

And that wasn't the only tribute the boy band received this year.

The quintet was one of the greatest boy bands included in new boy band The Wanted's latest music video, "Walks Like Rihanna". Group members Max, Siva, Nathan, Tom, and Jay copied the famous white outfits from one of the Backstreet Boy's all-time greatest hits "I Want It That Way."

To make matters even better, the two groups met for the first time earlier this month and performed together on the same stage at G-A-Y, a London night club.

We weren't there for the collaboration, but we definitely wish we were.
