Here's a 2021 update about what *our* boys are up to today.
We'll start with NSYNC.
First off, NSYNC were formed 26 years ago. 26 years ago!
Here's Chris then:
He is, of course, known for being a style icon. Remember his fashion line Fuman Skeeto?
And here's Chris now:
He's 49 and living in Nashville with his wife and son, Nash.
And here he is hosting a '90s party:
I like to think of his "Ronald McDonald" era as being his most iconic.
And Joey now:
He's 44 now and enjoying his full-on silver daddy era.
Here he is wishing his ex a happy Mother's Day with his 11-year-old daughter, Kloey.
He now self-identifies as "FAT-ONE."
And is really, really just embracing the "FAT-ONE" thing.
Oh yeah, Joey has a daughter who is 20 years old.
He is best known as being the best singer of the band and also for his chinstrap and Karen-esque haircuts.
He keeps a pretty low profile, but he did do this incredible cover of "Back for Good" with Gary Barlow from Take That.
Here he is on the beach, soaking wet in jeans.
He's 42 and has been married to his partner, Michael, since 2014.
And now they're expecting twins!
He is probably best known for his ramen noodle hair.
He turned 40 this year.
And has a 6-year-old son named Silas with Jessica Biel.
So, that was NSYNC.
And now let's look at the Backstreet Boys.
They've been together for 28 years. 28 years!
He's the youngest member of the group.
He's 41 and has three kids. I know there are two kids in this picture, but they just had their third earlier this year.
He wore a lot of cowboy hats and often times had weird facial hair.
He's 43 and has two daughters.
He's an ally.
And he will always be my favorite Backstreet Boy!!!
TBH, I always thought he was the hottest one.
He's the oldest member of the Backstreet Boys at 49. He turns 50 on October 3!
He also has a very cute dog named Baloo.
He always gave great face.
He is 48 and has two kids and a wife.
He celebrated his 13th wedding anniversary with his wife on a PJ.
Here's a picture of him with a big chain, sensible sweater, and some baggy shorts.
He's 46 with a wife and a teenage son.
Last year, we found out that Brian may or may not be a QAnon-believing Trump supporter.
Two days after the Capitol insurrection, Brian joined the conservative/QAnon-heavy social network Parler. It's a whole thing, and you can read about it here.
And there you have it: Everyone in your favorite boy bands has multiple kids, is married, over 40, and lives in the suburbs*.
*Except JC — honestly, good for him, because as my mom always said, "Kids are overrated."
