New Kids' Joey McIntyre Celebrates Birth of Baby Boy

Congratulations to New Kids on the Block cutie Joey McIntyre who is celebrating the birth of his second son with wife Barrett.

“New Baby Mac is on the Block!! 7 lbs., 10 oz., December 13th , 2009,” the blue-eyed dad tweeted yesterday afternoon. “He and his mom are both rock stars:).”

Newborn Rhys Edward McIntyre joins his two-year-old brother Griffin Thomas.

Joey told OK! last week that he was keeping his new arrival’s name top secret, “if you say a name, you’re very sensitive about the name, so you don’t want people to have that reaction and go [disparagingly] ‘mmmm’ whereas once the baby’s born, people are a little more inviting of that name.”

And it sounds as though the 36-year-old was an ideal husband as Barrett’s due date approached. He told OK!, “I give her back rubs. Back rubs are good. It’s a good way to put her to sleep, but I don’t give her enough back rubs, and I don’t do enough for her.”

Meanwhile, former 98 Degrees guy Drew Lachey and his wife, Lea, are expecting a sibling for their three-year-old daughter, Isabella.
