Rochelle McLean has shared a collage of photos of her husband A.J. McLean and nearly 2-month-old daughter Ava.
She wrote on January 9: “HAPPY BIRTHDAY Monkee!!! Ava and I love you more than you will ever know!”
The Backstreet Boys singer – who turned 35 – struggles with alcohol and drug addiction.
He told In Touch magazine, “I will forever be an alcoholic and an addict in recovery as long as I live. It’s an ongoing struggle, a daily thing.”
He added, “(I’ve been) trying to be a good husband and a good father and deal with life on life’s terms. There is a lot going on. It’s been overwhelming. I can’t stress how much my daughter is an inspiration to stay sober. When I come home and she opens those big blue eyes at me, it’s the most amazing feeling I could ever feel. I’m not looking for sympathy. It’s a constant struggle, and it’s not as easy as you think.”
