Former Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson & Wife Welcome A Son

Kevin Richardson

Former Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson and wife Kristin welcomed their first child, a son, on Tuesday, according to a message on his MySpace blog.

“We are officially parents,” Kevin, 35, wrote on his online page Wednesday. “At 4:56 a.m. Tuesday morning (7/3/07), our son Mason made his entrance into the world.”

The thrilled new father continues: “He is a healthy 8 lbs. 2 ounces/20.5 inches long and has a full head of dark hair. He and Kristin are perfect and I am a new man. Thank you for your positive vibes and prayers.”

(A rep for Richardson confirms the posting is authentic.)

Kevin and the former Kristin Willetts, 36, were married on June 17th, 2000, outside Kevin’s hometown of Lexington, Ky.

They met in 1993 in the employee cafeteria of Orlando’s Disney-MGM Studios theme park, where he worked as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and she was a dancer with the park’s Beauty and the Beast show.

Kevin left the Backstreet Boys in 2006 after 13 years with the group.

    Mildred, you won’t get very far because no one stole your identity. They just used your “name” to post a comment. You can log in as anyone’s name and what you choose to put for your email address is confidential. Duh.

    I dont know how you appropriated my personal log in info, but I will be contacting the identity theft department people at the FBI immediately!
