New Kids on the Block's Jonathan Knight Marries Longtime Boyfriend


(CNN) -- One of the New Kids on the Block is newly off the market.

Jonathan Knight, one-fifth of the New England-based boy band, revealed he recently married his longtime partner Harley Rodriguez in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight.

Knight initially played coy when ET host Lauren Zima asked him if he and Rodriguez had married after Knight called Rodriguez his husband.

"We may have, we may not have," the "Step by Step" singer said with a smile, although Zima later pointed out that he was wearing a flashy wedding ring.

Eventually, Knight admitted to Zima that the two had wed. The couple have been together since 2008 and became engaged in 2016, according to People, and even competed together on the 26th season of The Amazing Race.

Knight told People last year that he considered eloping with Rodriguez after COVID-19 halted their wedding plans.

The pair is based in Massachusetts, where they film the HGTV series Farmhouse Fixer. On the series, Knight renovates farmhouse-style homes for clients that have included his mother and extended family, he told ET.

Knight recently returned from a New Kids on the Block tour with support from contemporaries like Salt-n-Pepa, Rick Astley, and En Vogue.
