Break out the tissues, ladies. Nick Carter has found his fire and his one desire.
While the Backstreet Boys have been the heartthrobs of millions of women over the years, Nick Carter was the only one who had yet to find his one true love. However, after a boat ride to an island in the Florida Keys and dropping to one knee, the 33-year-old is now officially tying the knot!
Is Nick Carter Engaged — The Cryptic Instagram Photo
Posting on his Instagram account on Friday, Feb. 22, Nick wrote “Big question…great answer,” next to a picture of him and girlfriend Lauren Kitt. This began the speculation that the two are engaged.
“I had the ring in my pocket for two weeks,” Nick told People exclusively confirming the engagement. “I just wanted to get it out of my hands and on to hers.”
Kitt, 29, reacted saying that she “wasn’t expecting” the engagement that took place on Wednesday, Feb. 20.
“It just felt very surreal. We both are just so happy in love right now and on cloud nine,” she told the mag.
Lauren and Nick have been dating for four years. They were working on a workout video together, and rumors swirled that his relationship with her had caused him some drama with his brother Aaron Carter.
The Backstreet Boys Wife (& Baby) Up
Back in November, Backstreet’s bad boy, A.J. McLean, welcomed his first child into the world, Ava Jaymes with wife Rochelle.
Much more recently, Howie Dorough welcomed his second baby into the world. On Feb. 16, his wife Leigh Boniello Dorough gave birth to Holden John!
Kevin Richardson became the proud papa of Mason Frey Richardson, his only child with wife Kristin Kay Willits, in July 2007.
Kevin’s cousin Brian Littrell also became a father in December 2002 ,when he welcomed his first child, Baylee Thomas Wylee Littrell, with his wife — whom he met on a BSB music video shoot — Leighanne Wallace.
As he’s the youngest of the band, it would make sense that Nick is the last to tie the knot. They aren’t sure of a wedding date yet, as they said they need to check with the band’s schedule to figure out what works best!
Tell us HollywoodLifers, are you happy that Nick’s finally find his true love or are you totally bummed?
