Richardson left the popular boy band in 2006 but reunited with them to record new music in London last summer.
An insider close to the band said, “Kevin missed the rest of the guys, who he counts as brothers as well as bandmates, and felt now was the right time to return”.
Kevin met his wife Kristin while working as a cast member at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
Richardson dressed up as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Aladdin characters and Kristin was Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
The couple announced their baby news when Kevin tweeted a photo of his wife showing off her pregnant belly to the Easter Bunny.
He wrote, “So excited to share… The Easter Bunny brought a very special egg this year!”
The Backstreet Boys band members have welcomed other children lately. Howie Dorough and his wife had their second child in February, and A.J. McLean and his wife had a daughter in November.
