Everybody, rock your body at the daddy-daughter dance!
Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean took to Instagram on Friday night to share pics from his special night with his 5-year-old daughter, Ava.
"Ready for my first daddy-daughter dance at Ava’s school," the 40-year-old singer captioned a black-and-white pic of himself looking sharp in a suit with a boutonnière pinned to his chest. "Best night ever. More pics to come."
"Best night ever. I was Ava’s date to her first daddy daughter dance!! I love you Ava," he wrote alongside a picture of the two posing together.
"Rochelle got to name Ava after Ava Gardner because she loves old Hollywood, then she took my middle name, James, but spelled it differently," the boy bander explained. "So, I got to pick this time. I mean, lyrics… Backstreet Boys… it’s pretty cool, right?"
“She just loves music. She doesn’t like driving in the car, so we have to have music on," McLean shared in May. "We’re starting her out really young. Right now, she’s been listening a lot to David Bowie -- she likes to do her little hand movements to David Bowie! It’s fun.”
