I'll never break your heart, I'll never make you cry, I'd rather.... Ok, sorry for the Backstreet Boys nostalgia but we can't help it because Kevin Richardson (the one who quit and later rejoined) is back in the news.

The 41-year-old (omg, a Backstreet Boy is in his forties) announced this past weekend that he and his wife, Kristin, are expecting their second child.

The ecstatic father, who has a six-year-old son Mason, shared the good news on Twitter and Facebook by posting a photo of his wife next to an Easter Bunny with the caption: "The Easter Bunny brought a very special egg this year!"

Kevin's forthcoming baby isn't the only good BSB news; Nick Carter (he of the middle-part hair) says that a new Backstreet Boys album is "90 per cent done." Squeal!

This got us thinking: How have the Backstreet Boys changed over the years since they burst on to the pop music scene in the mid '90s?

Kevin has been sporting a goatee for a while but do you remember when he grew it out? Remember when Howie D flat-ironed his hair? Remember when AJ admitted to using hair plugs??

Check out the best and worst hairstyles of the Backstreet Boys:
