Jeff Timmons On 98 Degrees & NKOTB Tour: Diapers Replace Groupies


Boy band 98 Degrees is joining New Kids On The Block on tour this summer and only RumorFixgot some behind the scenes details from 98 Degrees founder Jeff Timmons.
The 39-year-old, who has a 14-month-old daughter, Ariahuna, tells RumorFix, “Instead of hanging with groupies, some of us will be changing diapers!”
Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo will also be taking their four-month-old, Camden John Lachey, on tour. Band member Drew Lachey has a two-year-old, Hudson, and a six-year-old, Isabella. “I think our families will join us,” Jeff says.
The last time the guys toured 10 years ago — they were all in their 20s and many of them were single.
Jeff tells us that after the band famous for “Because of You” had been talking about reuniting for awhile, but now the “timing just felt right.”
“We felt so good this summer performing together [with NKOTB], so we decided to do a full-blown tour.”
The amazing tour also reunites Boys II Men. “It’s exciting for us to be on tour with legends NKOTB and our idols and inspiration Boyz II Men,” Jeff says.
The hunky dad also reveals that the group, that is recording a new album, will perform some of their big hits and some new tunes when they hit the stage in late May.
