Nick Carter and Wife Lauren Expecting First Child

10/27/2015 at 09:15 PM ET

There’s a Backstreet baby on the way!

Nick Carter and his wife Lauren Kitt Carter are expecting their first child, a source reveals to PEOPLE.

Kitt, a fitness expert and actress, and Carter — who is currently competing on Dancing With the Stars — got engaged in 2013 and were married in 2014 at the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara.

The pair’s relationship and road to the altar was documented on VH1’s reality show I Heart Nick Carter in 2014.

The 35-year-old singer previously admitted to PEOPLE that he was scared of settling down and starting a family — but that all changed when he met 32-year-old Lauren.

“I said I’d never get married,” Carter told PEOPLE last year.

The singer’s Backstreet Boys bandmates were on hand for the big wedding day and were already speculating about Carter’s road to fatherhood.

“We’re all family. We’re all brothers,” A.J. McLean told PEOPLE. “To see our little baby brother finally make that big, big final step. Next step is having kids. Obviously, they just got married, so obviously take your time.”

I’m so happy for Nick and Lauren! Giving his family history and all the stuff he’s gone thought I’m so glad he found his forever with Lauren and now that they are starting their own little family!

KiKi on

OMG, would not have thought she was JUST 32 . . . more like at least 42!

Wow on

Didn’t watch their reality trash but the previews made him look ridiculously wild and her crazy and insecure….I hope if that was the content that they’ve matured since than and settled down happily. Did anyone actually care to watch it?
Regardless, Congrats to them! I always preferred N’sync but BSB were dreamy too back then.

Congrats to them!

I have always been a huge BSB fan, and an even bigger Nick Carter fan. I am so glad he found such a wonderful woman to spend his life with. They seem so in love and right for each other. Finding out that they are expecting a baby was such exciting news! This is going to be one good looking baby!

If it’s a boy, it will be the cutest teenager ever, just like his dad who was my first love

Luna on

I thought she was his mom, until I read further. Scary looking 32 year old!

Poppy on

She’s 32? She looks at least 10 years older. Take off the tight clothes and 10 lbs of makeup, then maybe she’ll look 32.

Krysten on

Ew! His wife looks as if she is trying a little too hard. Man, I still love you Nick! BSB! BSB! Can’t believe that I’m almost 30 and still listen to BSB. Oh well, Congrats.

CaseyM on

lol @ you haters. She looks beautiful and she does look like a woman in her 30’s. Congrats to them!

Kiki on

Congrats. How many is this for Nick now? I know of at least 2

Congrulatons on their new addition.

Woopty Doo (yes related to Scooby ;) on

Wasn’t their reality show to marriage filled with drama? The preview looked ridiculous and I refused to waste time watching it. Anyone actually watch it to give a recap?

She does not look like the kind of fit I’d pay an “expert” to guide me to. Sorry. She also must only do B movies cause I’ve never seen that face or giant behind in any decent movie-and I’m a movie freak. Nick looks so old too! A lot of partying in youth will age the skin faster.

Either way, Congrats on a new beautiful life. I wish health and prosperity upon them.

Morgan on

Reply to Woopty Doo: yes the show was drama filed due to Nick’s crazy mom. The show really showcased the love the two had for each other which ultimately should matter the most.

She is actually very fit. She, just like Nick, has a big booty! And she had a role in Nick’s new project movie Dead7. All the BSB had roles in the movie. She has never been in anything but Dead7 (which hasn’t been released as it was finished being shot right as he started DWTS).

I don’t think he looks that old but yes his partying from his 20’s may have had some effects which anyone who parties hard would have.

Kiki,
You know he has two kids?!? What?! I have never heard this.

Keatrwl on

Yikes, “ladies”. Stop with the envious backbiting about how she looks old.
So? She is gorgeous. I’m sure you are sitting with your perky bottom and gravity-defying chest upon your tuffet as you wear minimal makeup in front of a wall of photographers and look like a barely-18 year old Scarlett Johannson/Beyoncé/name your eminence ideal. We all must come to you and touch the hem of your peignoir to receive the chauvinist’s dream of eternal youth.

The least you can do to help is not make fun of a pregnant, married woman who can afford a baby. Isn’t that what you always beg for anyway?

They’re having a boy. They announced it on DWTS tonight, and the Backstreet Boys also confirmed it on twitter.
