AJ McLean of the Backstreet Boys has come a long way since the band’s formation. Today, he’s still a part of BSB, a family man and one of our favorite Instagram follows.McLean is now in his 40s and he’s changed a lot since the early days of the Backstreet Boys. He’s now sober, married, a father to two children and (like the rest of us) a “work in progress.” He’s an inspiring person to follow on Instagram if you want to see what it’s really like to evolve. The Florida native even shares his gym journey with his fans.
