‘N Sync member Joey Fatone plans to marry Kelly Baldwin, his high-school sweetheart and the mother of his 3-year old daughter, this Thursday on the East Coast, say reports.

This will be the first marriage for any member of ‘N Sync. Fatone and Baldwin’s daughter, Brianna, was born March 21, 2001.

Besides his appearances with the group, which formed in 1995, the Brooklyn-born Fatone, 27, was in the hit 2002 movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding and on Broadway in the musical Rent. (Drew Lachey, brother of Nick, is now filling Fatone’s shoes in that production.)

He most recently starred in the stage revival of Little Shop of Horrors, playing the nerdy plant-shop worker Seymour.

‘N Sync, meanwhile, was recently dealt a blow by star member Justin Timberlake, who has decided not to join them on a new album. Just as the boy band reportedly held talks to start recording, Timberlake “said he’s not in the mood and doesn’t think it will work,” a source recently told PEOPLE.

In July, Timberlake joined former bandmates JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Chris Kirkpatrick and Fatone to sing the national anthem at a charity event in Miami.
