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.

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.
