  • Us Weekly -- Howie Dorough had an extra reason to celebrate his 39th birthday!

    On Aug. 20, the Backstreet Boys singer announced via Twitter that his wife, Leigh, is pregnant with their second son. "Thanks to family, friends and fans for all the amazing birthday wishes," Dorough wrote. "This year I'm receiving the best gift from my wife: another baby boy!"

    Two days later, on the boy band member's actual birthday, his son celebrated by singing "Happy Birthday."

    "What else could I ask for?" Dorough tweeted. "These precious moments are what life is all worth living for."
