Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell (aka one of my top two favourites) was seen with his wife Leighanne and adorable son Bailey out and about in Yorkville tonight, heading out for a late dinner at Café MoRoCo. Littrell, in town for a concert at Molson Amphitheatre tonight with his band mates has been in-town since Thursday night and made some time today to do a bit of Golfing.

He Tweeted to his fans that he was enjoying S'mores, challenging fans to find him.  This alarmed a slew of fans to arrive at the restaurant's doorstep. Upon leaving Café MoRoCo with bags filled with their specialty Macarons and Truffles, his Security Guard ushered fans back to his Hotel where they were lined up and took photos with Littrell one-by-one.   Generosity incarnate.  And he looked thrilled actually to be greeting his fans.

Leighanne appeared fatigued, heading back to their Room first, although their son Bailey was all smiles at the Hotel's entrance, playing with a Sobieski Vodka Keychain Light (the same ones handed out at last night's Bruce Willis party), shining it on fans waiting on his famous Daddy.

Littrell has stirred up quite a bit of controversy of late, having built a solo career as a Christian artist.  Earlier this year, Backstreet Boys appeared as the Grand Marshals of the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade, which led to his music ridiculously being pulled from Christian Radio Stations.  In addition, any products relating to him being removed from Christian-themed stores.  Hey - what ever happened to "love thy neighbour"?  Get with the times, people!

Check out some of these photos I got of the wonderful Littrell and his family this evening:

  1. OMG! I wish i was there, he was always my favourite and Nick was my second! Damn, oh well maybe another time! :)

  2. hahaha Nick unfortunately is tricky this time to "get", because understandably he charged $80 a ticket to meet him last night so i don't think he's gonna give it away for free this time.

  3. Will, you are totally a superstar at this. Brian looks great and Bailey is too adorable now. Two Boys down, two to go? ;) (And thank you a million times again!!)

  4. Brian is so awesome to his fans - he's a very humble, very sweet man! Thank you, Will for your very nice(and very true) comments about him :)

  5. Brian Litrell should be pulled from Christian radio stations. He is condoning behavior that is against biblical scripture. You can love Gays and Lesbians without condoning their behavior. After all I doubt he would go to a heterosexual "shacking up" parade. A sin is a sin...and neither one should be condoned. Brian Littrell is becoming more of the world. I have been a fan of his since I was 11 (now 24) and I was very disappointed in his behavior. Plenty of people feel also this way and will not be supporting his career any longer. Brian Littrell is now as lukewarm as a baby's bath water. I pray this changes.

  6. To Anonymous...

    Get a life! Keep your opinion to yourself.

    Gay and Lesbian are people too, born in the same way as you are... you have no right to say what you did about Brian wishing to support the Parade.

    Brian is a blessed man, with more sense than you.

    You should pray for yourself.

  7. I agree, Brian is a wonderful human being with a huge heart. All they basically did was to give back to the gay community because a lot of gay people are fans of the boys. As far as I see it, there is nothing wrong with that and Brian does not deserve to have his music pulled. To me, that is dead wrong. Why, because he accepts all walks of life? I am glad that he does and he also doesn't judge anyone. We should learn from him. I think that he sets a good example. He is also teaching his son to be accepting of everyone as well. Good for you Brian, you are number one to me.
