Super cute ex-NKOTB er Joey McIntyre talk pregnancy cravings and his excitement about becoming a daddy with People Magazine.
Joey and his wife, Barrett found out they were expecting their first child on St. Patrick’s Day. He said that they are thrilled and that everything is coming together now that they also have a new house.
He goes on to talk about something that most men are very familiar with during pregnancy – cravings!
“She can’t eat chocolate anymore,” McIntyre says. “She keeps saying she loves chocolate, but the baby doesn’t. She used to like chocolate and peanut butter and now she likes potato chips and salty stuff. It’s definitely different.”
But throughout the ups and downs, McIntyre is right by her side. “They do all the work and the husband just has to stand by and roll with the changes,” says the future father with a laugh. “They’re obviously going through a lot. You can’t always figure it out exactly. You just have to be there and available.”
The couple will go out on the road together this summer as part of the Dancing With The Stars tour.
“She’s a little worried about some of the bumpy roads but I’m sure she’ll be fine,” says McIntyre, who will be sure to take care of all the luggage. “I don’t want her to lift anything,” he says. “She’d rather do it herself than ask somebody so it’s frustrating for her to sit back and ask for me to do it.”
We wish them luck in their cross country adventure via tour bus. It will give them time to talk about their unborn child’s future and possible name choices.
