Backstreet's Kevin Richardson Gets Hitched

Fans of one tall, dark-haired, and steel-eyed Backstreet Boy must have felt a psychic twinge this weekend, as the group's Kevin Richardson married his longtime girlfriend Kristin Willits on Saturday.

Richardson, who was named "Sexiest Pop Star" by "People" magazine last November, closed the deal on his eight-year relationship at a small, private ceremony at the Cathedral Domain in his hometown of Lexington, Kentucky, a rep for the band confirmed. All of Kevin's fellow Backstreet Boys were in attendance at the service.

Along with Richardson, BSB Brian Littrell revealed his engagement to MTV News earlier this year (see "Two Backstreet Boys Ready Wedding Bells"), though there's no word yet on when Littrell is expected to make his own trip down the aisle.

After the newlyweds have a chance to enjoy a spot of post-nuptial bliss, Kevin and the other Boys will head back into the studio on July 1 with producer Max

Martin to work on their next, as-yet-untitled album, which is due out this fall (see "Backstreet Boys Set Up Studio Time").
