Howie Dorough and his wife, Leigh, welcomed their second son, Holden John Dorough, on Saturday (Feb. 16).
"We're so excited to share this news with you all!" Howie tweeted to his fans. "Say hello to Holden John Dorough!"
In a statement to PEOPLE, the singer express his excitement over their new bundle of joy.
"My beautiful wife Leigh and I are so proud to welcome our son to the world," he said. "Holden surprised us by arriving three days ahead of schedule at 6:37 a.m. Holden is healthy and we couldn't be happier."
Holden joins big brother James Hoke, who is 3 and 1/2 years old.
"Leigh is such an incredible woman and mother, and our son is so excited to have a baby brother," Howie added to the mag. "I feel so lucky to have such an amazing family."
Holden James reportedly weighs 6 lbs., 15 oz. and is 20 inches long.
Howie and Leigh have been married for five years.
Besides new daddy duties, Howie has been hard at work in the studio with the Backstreet Boys, as the group is working on new music to be released later this year.
Congrats to Howie and his family!
