Joey McIntyre is an American singer, songwriter, actor and dancer. He is best known as a member of the boy band New Kids on the Block. McIntyre was born on December 31, 1972, in Needham, Massachusetts, the youngest of nine children. His parents, Thomas and Katherine (née McLaughlin) McIntyre, were both of Irish descent. He has seven sisters: Donna, Nancy, Karen, Elizabeth, Mary, Lisa and Amy; and one brother: Tommy. McIntyre’s mother died of Alzheimer’s disease in 2008.

McIntyre was educated at Catholic Memorial School in West Roxbury, Massachusetts. He sang the national anthem at Fenway Park when he was eight years old. He appeared in community theater and school musicals while he was a student at Catholic Memorial. McIntyre graduated from high school in 1991.

McIntyre’s interest in music began when he was a child. His father was a big band singer and his mother was a folk singer. He has said that his sisters were his biggest musical influences growing up. McIntyre’s first professional performance was with New Kids on the Block in Boston in 1984. He joined the group two years later, when they were looking for a replacement for original member Danny Wood.

New Kids on the Block achieved success in the late 1980s and early 1990s with hits such as “Please Don’t Go Girl”, “You Got It (The Right Stuff)” and “Step by Step”. The group disbanded in 1994, but reunited in 2008. They have released two albums since reuniting, “The Block” (2008) and “10” (2013).

As a solo artist, McIntyre has released three albums: “Stay the Same” (1999), “Talk to Me” (2001) and “The Pop Game” (2016). He has also appeared on Broadway in “Rent” (2008) and “Hairspray” (2009).

McIntyre has been married to Barrett Williams since 2003. They have two children together: Griffin Thomas (born 2007) and Rhys Edward (born 2010).

In 2019, McIntyre’s net worth was estimated to be $14 million.

1[on what it was like being reunited in Wicked with Joel Grey who played his father-in-law in The Fantasticks (1995)] "It was my first movie, and he was such a pro. I remember being able to go to his trailer and chat about anything. I was 21 and blabbing about what I wanted to do, and he said everything would work out."
2[on fame and Hollywood] "If you're going to have a chip on your shoulder in this business, you'll have no shoulders left at the end of the day."
3[on gay marriage] "I support gay marriage. I don't see the big deal. It's really ridiculous. My mother raised me Catholic, and I think the teachings of Jesus Christ have made me a caring person. And in my family, we have blacks, Jews and gays. I was brought up to follow what Jesus said: Love your neighbor, period."
4[on his audition for the New Kids] "I tried out on Father's Day, June 15, 1985. Mary picked me up and I was really scared. I went to Maurice's (Starr) house and tried out. I sang one of the songs the group was about to record and afterwards we got in the car and Mary asked me, 'Well, do you want to be in the group? You've got the part.' And I said, 'Yeah, here I am,' and we recorded the songs."
5[on dating; 1991] "I like steady relationships. By that I mean relationships that are balanced, where the guy isn't superior to the girl, where two people share everything. My perfect date would include a romantic dinner just for two, then maybe afterward we'd go to the theatre and see a play or a movie. Then after that, we would go for a walk. Yeah! Especially if it were on an autumn night in Boston. I love fall! I'd be all cozy in my jacket, and my date and I would walk hand-in-hand by the Charles River in Boston."
