From 1986 until 1994, Knight was a member of the award-winning American boy band New Kids on the Block.
They went on to sell over 80 million records worldwide before splitting in 1994 after he left during the tour for their 1994 album Face the Music.
They originally tried to continue the tour claiming he had been badly hurt by a horse, but in a press conference a few weeks later, they revealed that they were actually splitting.
In the spring of 2008, Knight returned to show business, reuniting with the other four members of New Kids on the Block.
“That’s the funny thing, with two guys it’s always hard,” he said.
“We were in Africa, our parents were there — our moms were there — and I just figured this was the time to pop the question and make it official,” Knight, 47, shared on Tuesday’s episode of Sirius’ “The Jenny Mc Carthy Show.” The New Kids on the Block singer and Rodriguez, 43, began dating in 2008.
Tiffany, 41, said today, being a pop star is more about corporate alliances and less about talent.
“Partnering with brands seems to be very important nowadays, and those opportunities seem to be awesome when they come your way.
