In an interview with People two years earlier, the star detailed her journey and motivations to radically change her lifestyle.
‘My wife and I have always had this agreement, which is, if I smell of alcohol, I’m not allowed to play with my kids. I couldn’t be with my children,’ he explained to the publication.

“But what really hit me was the moment my youngest daughter Lyric said to me that night, ‘You don’t smell like your dad.’ And when she said that to me, that’s it. Enough said. I felt disgusted,’ he admitted.
He explained in the interview that family has a big influence on maintaining sobriety.
‘I’m flying overhead, naturally. My family saved my life, God saved my life, and my recovery saved my life. Without those three things, I wouldn’t be here. ‘
Since 2020, AJ continues to lead a healthy and sober lifestyle for his wife, children and himself.

The tour will run until March 2023. When speaking to CNN Entertainment in early July, AJ expressed that he was thrilled to be back performing on stage.
‘The rest of the tour was sold out. Europe is sold out. Latin America has sold out,’ he said.
‘It’s a testament to each other. It’s a testament to our fans, and it’s a testament to the music,’ AJ added. ‘I am honored to say that I am a Backstreet Boy, and I am proud to be a Backstreet Boy in 2022.’
