From musical bromance to marriage advice – Jordan Knight
have been through it all together!
These days, the former boy banders are touring together as part of their Nick and Knight side project. But in an interview with ET's Nischelle Turner, Nick and Jordan looked back on a friendship that even pre-dates their teen heartthrob days. ET caught up with the duo backstage before their show at the House of Blues in West Hollywood.
"Before we did the NKOTBSB thing, him and I wrote music together," Nick said. "We had run into each other numerous times in Orlando, we were writing music together in Orlando, and that was the first time that we developed a bromance, you could say."
Added Jordan: "We rekindled the bromance on the NKOTBSB tour."
(If you're not up on the lingo: NKOTBSB is shorthand for "New Kids on the Block" and "Backstreet Boys" – the pair's respective former boy bands. "It was a boy band lovers wet dream," Jordan joked of the collab.)
These days, both Jordan and Nick are happily married
. Jordan wed Evelyn Melendez in 2004, while Nick tied the knot with Lauren Kitt in April of this year. But even with 10 years of marriage under his belt, Jordan says he doesn't have many words of wisdom to offer.
"He does, though!" Nick said. "He's a great example. On my show,
he gave me some great advice and it was true."
What was it? "I would say, you have to tell your wife when you’re going on tour," Jordan said. "Let her know your plans. Don't tell her the day before or the week before – keep her in the loop!"
