This Backstreet Boy finally has his baby girl.

A.J. McLean and his wife Rochelle welcomed daughter Ava Jaymes McLean on Tuesday, Nov. 27 in Los Angeles, the singer confirms.

“Rochelle and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our baby,” McLean, 34, writes on his website. “She arrived at 4:51 a.m. weighing 7 lbs., 7 oz. We are so in love with our bundle of joy and happy to have started our family now.”

After confirming the pregnancy via a video announcement in April, the parents-to-be brought back the cameras to reveal they were expecting a girl.

But while they were happy to share their news, their daughter wasn’t so ready to make her debut. On Saturday — her due date — Rochelle took to Twitter to admit baby girl was taking her sweet time with her arrival.

“Come on AVA!!! It never takes Mommy this long to get ready!” she wrote. “Being punctual is a great quality to have!! Now come out so we can see you!!”
