Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter, 39, is a dad again!
Carter’s wife Lauren gave birth to their second child, a baby girl, Us Weekly reports.
A source told the outlet, “Mom and daughter are doing great.”
More details about their daughter have not been revealed.
On Wednesday, Carter was getting “emotional” about his baby’s arrival. Along with a sonogram, he wrote on Instagram, “I’m starting to get emotional. 🥺🥺🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻. #heartbeat #baby #newbaby #newfather #happy #love #godgiveuspeace.”
On the same day, Lauren shared a family photo with their son Odin, 3. She wrote, “We’ve been soaking up as much time as possible with our first born, so thankful to have these photos of the three of us before we become four.”
In May, Nick announced that they were expecting again. Along with a pic of himself cradling her baby bump as their son Odin looked up at them, Carter wrote on Instagram, “Thank You God for giving us the greatest gift we could ever ask for 🌈. #pregnant #werepregnant#babykisses #happiness #family.”
Earlier that month, Lauren sparked pregnancy rumors as they were sightseeing in Barcelona.
The pregnancy news came less than a year after Lauren suffered a miscarriage. At the time, Carter tweeted, “God give us peace during this time. I really was looking forward to meeting her after 3 months. I’m heartbroken.”
He noted, “It was a little sister for Odin.”
Nick has been open about their pregnancy struggles in the past. In 2015, he announced that they were expecting their first child, but revealed that they had previously suffered a miscarriage. On a pre-taped package on “Dancing with the Stars,” he said, “It’s been rocky, to be quite honest with you. There have been times when we thought it wouldn’t happen.”
Lauren, who was 16 weeks along at the time with Odin, said, “It was really hard on Nick. Just watching him get so excited about something, and then see him so hurt. That was hard.”
Nick popped the question to the fitness expert in 2014 in the Florida Keys after knowing her for five years. Two years before Odin’s arrival, Nick and Lauren tied the knot at the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara.
Last year, Nick opened up about how Lauren and Odin have changed his life. He told People magazine, “I’ve always had a love for family. And then obviously, things kind of happened for me in my life. And now that I have Odin, words can’t explain how happy I am right now and how much more invigorated I am. I realize how blessed I am to have him, my wife, to have my group.”
He recently praised Lauren, saying, “For me to have a strong woman like her, who I love and trust… I knew she would be a foundation and a rock for me whenever times got tough. I knew that I would be protected with her. And we protect one another.”
