It’s a very special year for Kevin Richardson, who has yet another reason to celebrate: He’s going to be a dad again.

“So excited to share… The Easter Bunny brought a very special egg this year,” the Backstreet Boys bandmate, 41, wrote on Twitter, posting a photo of his wife Kristin displaying her growing baby bump.

This will be the second child for the couple, who welcomed son Mason, now 5Β½, in July 2007.

Richardson is also celebrating his band’s 20th anniversary together with a special concert on April 20.

This will be the third Backstreet baby in the past year — Howie Dorough welcomed son Holden in February while A.J. McLean welcomed daughter Ava in November.

Anna- You’re most likely thinking of Aaron’s brother, Nick (as it is he that is/was a Backstreet Boy). πŸ™‚
