It’s a (Backstreet) Boy! Congratulations are in order for Nick Carter and his wife, Lauren Kitt, who announced that they’re expecting their first child. The couple got the surprise of a lifetime when they learned the gender of their child live on ‘DWTS!’
Nick Carter, 35, paused his pursuit of the Mirrorball trophy on Dancing With The Stars on November 2 to announce something major: his gorgeous wife, Lauren Kitt, 32, is pregnant with their first child! And to make things even better, they found out the gender of their new little bundle of joy live on air!
“My wife and I are happy to personally announce that we are pregnant,” Nick told HollywoodLife.com in a statement. “It has been our dream to have a family together and we cannot wait to welcome our first child into the world.” Hooray! On DWTS, Nick and Lauren had maybe the best gender reveal party we’ve ever seen.
With the help of host Erin Andrews, Nick and Lauren opened a gigantic box that released dozens of blue balloons. You know what that means — it’s a boy! Nick and Lauren didn’t know the gender of their unborn child when this happened, so it was an amazing surprise. The emotional couple sweetly kissed after learning their life-changing news.
The moment was especially poignant after Nick and Lauren revealed just how hard it’s been to conceive a child. Lauren, who is now 16 weeks along in her pregnancy, previously had a devastating miscarriage. “We were pregnant before and we lost the baby. it was hard on Nick,” she said on DWTS. After trying to get pregnant for a year, Nick and Lauren are now well on their way to being happy and loving parents. We’re so happy for them!
HollywoodLifers, help us congratulate Nick and Lauren in the comments!
