It feels like just yesterday that ‘N Sync’s Joey Fatone became a father. But today, he and his wife Kelly Baldwin have two girls — actually, a teenage and a little girl if you want to get technical. His eldest daughter, Briahna is 13 years old now, while his youngest, Kloey, is just 4.
“They’re doing great, it’s crazy they’re not so little anymore,” Joey exclusively told Wetpaint Entertainment when he stepped out in New York City. “I never thought I would have a teenager, but I do, and I’ll be doing it again soon when the other one turns 13.”
Who would have thought that this teen heartthrob would soon become a father to teenagers?! It’s crazy to think about it, but we also can’t help but wonder if Joey’s girls will ever follow in dad’s musical footsteps. Turns out, the apples didn’t fall far from the tree…
“They love music, they love to entertain, but I don’t know. My daughter Briahna is very fickle — she goes back and forth,” the 37-year-old says. “She wants to be an actress, then again she’d rather dance, but then again maybe she wants to sing, and then maybe again she doesn’t want to do any of that stuff.”
So what happens if Briahna ends up being just like Dad? “I just let her see what happens, help her out any way I can,” Joey adds. “I can help her out, but he’s gotta kind of earn it, just like I did. I didn’t really have anyone pushing me, my parents obviously were the support group, but I had to do it on my own.”
Guess we’ll have to wait and see if little Miss Briahna takes to acting (maybe an appearance in My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 with Dad?), or tries her hand at singing. Either way, looks like this girl already has Dad’s gift of song!
