Back in 2006, Backstreet Boys fans feared they may have seen the last of Kevin Richardson, when he left the group, explaining, "I didn't have anything left in the tank. In 2006, there were some things I wanted to do in my own life and start a family and be normal for a while... I didn't feel inspired." Fans were excited to see him rejoin the group in 2012, when he returned feeling inspired and ready to make music again.
During his BSB hiatus, he tried his hand at acting, making an appearance in a Christian TV movie called “Love Takes Wing” in 2009. In 2010 he also started in a musical film called “The Bloody Indulgent” and the drama “The Casserole Club,” for which he earned an Independent Vision award for “Best Actor” in 2011.
Kevin and his wife Kristin are now also the proud parents of two sons, though he opened up on Entertainment Tonight about the struggles with fertility they went through in conceiving their second child, Maxwell Haze, who they welcomed in July of 2013.
In addition to his work with the Backstreet Boys, Brian Littrell has been making waves as a solo artist in contemporary Christian music. In 2006, he released a solo album called “Welcome Home” and has released five top 20 singles in the U.S.
In 2006, his song “In Christ Alone” won him the GMA Dove Award for Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year and went on to receive three more Doves for collaboration projects in following years.

Back in 1997, Brian would meet his future wife, Leigh Anne Wallace while working on the video shoot for BSB’s “As Long As You Love Me.” The two were married in September of 2000 in Atlanta Georgia and are both dedicated evangelical Christians.
