A.J. McLean is going to be a father again!

The Backstreet Boys member announced on social media Monday that he and his wife Rochelle are expecting their second child.

“So the Mclean family will be expecting a new addition to the family next spring!! #laborday! Ha get it “labor” day! I’m a goof! #avaisgonnabeabigsister #baby2! Keep u all posted!! We’re so excited,” McLean, 38, captioned a photo of four different sizes of the same Air Jordan sneaker.

The singer’s wife shared the same photo on Instagram along with the message: “THEN there were FOUR! Cats out of the bag! Couldn’t be more excited to add another little to our family! Baby McLean #2 spring 2017!”

The McLeans are already parents to 3½-year-old daughter Ava Jaymes.

It appears baby fever has been on their minds since welcoming Ava. In January, A.J. told PEOPLE that they were looking forward to expanding their family.

“Mommy and Daddy are trying to figure out when we get Mommy, Daddy time. We are talking about [baby] number two so it’s trying to figure out when and where!” McLean shared.

Adding, “Whatever our next child is, boy or girl, you would think that, ‘Oh I did it once, I’ve got it.’ No. It’s hard. It’ll make it easier, but it’s still going to be a brand new learning process,” he said.

I think she’s very pretty, but feel bad for her being with a bitchy
Backstreet Boy (I’m still a fan of their old music, btw). I find her body language odd and discomforting. I tend to wonder if there’s something going on in the privacy of their own home.

Congrats, another Backstreet Baby! Wish AJ and family all the best! Glad to see AJ so happy and settled these days. Feel like a proud mama, since I watched these guys grow up! I guess we are all old now🙂 “Time, look where you are and what we’ve been through”
