Joseph Mulrey "Joey" McIntyre (born December 31, 1972) is an American singer-songwriter and actor. He is best known as the youngest member of the musical group New Kids on the Block.
McIntyre was born in Needham, Massachusetts, the son of Thomas, a union official, and Katherine (died November 30, 2014, after a long battle with Alzheimer's), a community theater actress. He is the youngest of nine children (Judy, Alice, Susan, Tricia, Carol, Jean, Kate, Tommy, and Joe), in an Irish-American Catholic family.

At CM, Joey enjoyed his lunch time excursions with his friend Donnie in his IROC. They sometimes would do rollerblade tricks as well. He shares the same birthday as his sister Carol.
