cPop singer Chris Kirkpatrick, best known for his time in the late ’90s and early 2000s boy band *NSYNC, is now a daddy! Kirkpatrick’s wife Karly gave birth to their son, Nash Dylan, yesterday in Nashville, TN, People.com reports. This is the couple’s first child together.
Kirkpatrick and his wife announced their pregnancy in March. At the time, Kirkpatrick told People, “Karly and I are over the moon excited that we are welcoming a new addition to the family. We are both looking forward to becoming parents, and learning how much fun having a child will be.”
Apparently, the couple wanted to start a family for quite awhile, at least since their 2013 nuptials.
On Twitter, Kirkpatrick showed a heartwarming shot of his wife and son in a hospital bed, calling Karly “the real Wonder Woman.”

Both the new mom and dad were eager to document the entire pregnancy on social media. Chris Kirkpatrick’s photo on Labor Day showed his wife looking happy during the latter weeks of her pregnancy.

Karly Kirkpatrick herself tweeted out a belly photo less than a week before her son’s arrival, saying, “We are ready for you!”

The new family is getting some love from the *NSYNC brotherhood, too. Lance Bass shared People’s exclusive article on his official Facebook page. Aww!
Perhaps baby Nash will be present at the forthcoming 2017 *NSYNC reunion, which Bass announced earlier this year. Rumor has it the guys will reunite when their star on the Walk of Fame is revealed.
There are also plans to re-release the group’s classic 1998 Christmas album, Home for Christmas. Here’s hoping Justin, Lance, JC, Joey, and Chris could recreate their amazing a capella harmonies on the Christmas carol “O Holy Night” to soothe little Nash to sleep.
Case in point:
Congratulations, Chris and Karly!
