The Daily Treat: The Backstreet Boys Cause Panda-monium

Just when you thought the Backstreet Boys couldn't get any cuter!

While on break from touring in China on Thursday, the reunited boy band – members Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough and A.J. McLean – made nice with a group of panda cubs during a visit to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in the country's Sichuan province.

Judging from the photo, we're not sure which quintet had the better time: While each guy happily cradled his furry buddy, the little ones gleefully kicked back, too, relaxing and indulging in delicious drinks.

From Backstreet to one of the most famous streets!

More than 15 years after the release of their self-titled debut album, Backstreet Boys A.J. McLean, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, Kevin Richardson and Nick Carter were awarded with their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Monday.

Clad in dapper suits – a far cry from the leather and oh-so-sparkly bandanas of their youth – the group grinned as they posed with the brand-new (and 2,485th) star.

Nick Carter has found his fire, his one desire.

"I had the ring in my pocket for two weeks," the Backstreet Boy tells PEOPLE exclusively of his engagement to fitness expert/actress Lauren Kitt.

"I was like, 'I don't want it anymore!' It was driving me insane. I just wanted to get it out of my hands and on to hers."

For the momentous occasion, Carter, 33, took his fiancée, 29, to the Florida Keys where he planned a romantic boat ride to a secluded island – but things did not go as smoothly as expected.

It's pretty customary for most men to take a back seat when it comes to wedding planning. But Backstreet Boys' A.J. McLean has admitted to being a very involved "groomzilla."  

"I'm hands-on," he told PEOPLE in April about planning his goth-themed evening ceremony, which took place under a clear tent on the Crystal Lawn on Saturday at the Beverly Hills Hotel.  

McLean, 33, and bride Rochelle DeAnna Karidis exchanged vows under a gazebo adorned with white hydrangeas, while guests were surrounded by warm elements like romantic chandeliers.
