While the World Like This music tour rambles on, Backstreet Boys’ singer Kevin Richardson, 41, took time to welcome his second son. His wife Kristin Willits, 42, gave birth to the baby on July 10, reported Us Weekly magazine.
Popstar-sensation Dad posted photos of his swaddled baby boy, given the name Maxwell Haze Richardson, being held along side Mom by big brother Mason, who is 6 years old, on Twitter (@KevinRichardson) to 125,000-and-counting followers.
The accompanying message read just as any pleased Papa’s would:“Blessed,” with no fewer than three exclamation marks following.
The name Maxwell is based originally om a Scottish surname, and, once upon a day, indicated a person who dwelled near the Maccus stream.
The baby name has been quite popular among the celeb set, having been given to both girls and boys.
It’s shared by:
* Daughter of athlete Eric Johnson and songstress Jessica Simpson, Maxwell Drew
