Musician Nick Carter welcomed his third child early last week with wife Lauren Kitt. Carter tweeted on April 22 that there were a few complications with the birth. “We have been experiencing some minor complications but things are looking a little better after the first night.”

Carter is best known as a member of the hit 90s boyband the Backstreet Boys and recently released a single titled “80s Movie” in late 2020.

Carter, 41, also shared a photo to his 1.6 million Instagram followers last week asking for “prayers and good thoughts,” and received many comments full of support. Even the official Buccaneers account commented their support in the form of three praying hands emojis.

Carter then tweeted again on April 24 that they were, unfortunately, going to have to stay another night in the hospital, but that “things were improving.” He also reiterated how “grateful for everyone’s love and caring thoughts” he and his wife were.

Baby number three was quite the welcome surprise to both Carter and his wife Lauren, 37. The news of the pregnancy came after the couple suffered three miscarriages. Kitt said she didn’t realize she was pregnant until about five months into her pregnancy. “One day I just – I felt something move in my body and I said, ‘Nick, there’s something not right. I think I need to go to the doctor. Something’s wrong with me.'”

The couple had been considering a surrogate in order to have more children.
