NSYNC singer Joey Fatone welcomed his second daughter with his wife of 5 years, Kelly , last night! Kloey Alexandra Fatone was born Monday in Orlando, and weighed just 5 pounds 8 ounces. The couple have another daughter, Briahna, who is 8.

"Kloey's so small," said the former Dancing with the Stars contestant (via People magazine). "She looks like a little doll. But she's healthy and doing just fine."

She's doing well now, but it was a rough start for mom and baby. During Kelly's first bit of pregnancy, she suffered chronic fatigue, and worse. "She was so tired, just exhausted all the time," Fatone said. "We took her to the doctors, and they found blood clots in her lungs. It was life and death."

Kelly spent 12 days in the hospital, and discovered she had a rare genetic condition called methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (try to say that one 4 times fast). The condition increases the chances that the baby will be born with chromosomal defects, such as Down's Syndrome.

She apparently did fine throughout most of the pregnancy, but had a rapid heartbeat and fainting spells last week, so they induced her 2 weeks before her due date. The blood clots have now broken up, and mom and baby are "doing awesome," according to the singer.

He said the name comes from a blend of Joey and Kelly. Big sis Briahna picked Alexandra for her middle name. "I'm thrilled," Fatone says. "I'm just so happy that everyone's healthy."
