There’s going to be another new kid on the block: Joey McIntyre tells PEOPLE that his wife Barrett is expecting their second child – a boy – in December.
“I still can’t get over it,” says the singer, 36, who also has 20-month-old son Griffin. “We feel so blessed.”
So far baby no. 2 has already managed to throw his parents for a loop. “My wife actually took the [pregnancy] test but she thought it was negative,” says McIntyre. “She came out and gave me this look like, ‘No.’ Then she showed me the test and I said ‘It’s positive! What the hell?'”
Then when the proud parents, who were convinced they were having a girl, found out they were adding another boy to the brood. “We were shocked,” says McIntyre, who had his daughter’s name picked out. But they’re hardly disappointed. “It’s going to be a trip to have a couple of boys around.”
Griffin is more than ready for his new brother, says McIntyre, who grew up the youngest of nine kids. Along with constantly kissing his mommy’s belly, “We say to him all the time, ‘Do you want us to bring home a baby?'” Griffin’s response? “Please!”
The boyband parted ways in 1994, and McIntyre confesses he would frequently wake up in his front yard after a night of hard partying.
But he insists he always steered clear of drugs – and eventually cleaned up his act with the help of his family and friends.
McIntyre, 35, says, “We all went through bumpy times in our own ways. Sure, we are going to make mistakes, but luckily our close families were there to make sure we didn’t fall too hard.”
“We all had to figure out our lives after the craziness of New Kids ended. I didn’t go to college so I didn’t have that party time, but I definitely had party time where I was going out and passing out on my front lawn a couple of times. Boston (Massachusetts) is a very small town so you can’t get a big head as they keep you down. They keep you grounded. Many of our friends are like, ‘How did you guys not manage to get into drugs?’ That would never cross our minds.”
