Nick Lachey Turns 40 — Guess Which Other Boy Band Members are 40+ Too

Getty ImagesNick Lachey asked fans to "pray" for him on Friday, the eve of his 40th birthday. It's going to be a "big one," he wrote about the weekend. He also bid farewell to his "fun" thirties in the post. While the guy certainly has plenty of things to look forward to now that he's over the hill — he has a toddler, after all — we thought it would be nice to remind he that he's not the only aging boy bander.

In fact, Chris Kirkpatrick of 'NSYNC has two years on him!

Here's a short and sweet rundown of the boy band members who've hit 40 as well (we're counting late '90s era boy banders, not, say NKOTB or Jackson 5):

98 Degrees

Nick is actually the second-to-last member of his band to reach the big 4-0. Nick's brother Drew is 37 and the only 98 Degrees member who's not 40.
