Rochelle & A.J. McLean’s Lil’ Sports Fan

Rochelle McLean posted a photo of 2-month-old Ava watching television with her dad A.J. McLean last Sunday (January 20).

She wrote on Instagram: “Watching the Patriots LOSE with daddy @skulleeroz #sundayfundayonthecouch #homesweethome”

The Backstreet Boys singer – who recently turned 35 – has said because of his daughter he has kept sober.

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. (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.”
