Backstreet’s back … with a baby!

Nick Carter is already giving his 4-month-old son Odin Reign a head start on seeing what his dad does for a living.

“Hanging with daddy for the first time at the studio while we record a song for the new @backstreetboys album,” the singer, 36, captioned a Sunday Instagram photo of himself and his son in the studio.

“#babies #newmusic #backstreetboys,” Carter hashtagged the shot, which shows the proud dad smiling and little Odin interested in something off camera more so than the lens.

Carter and his wife Lauren Kitt Carter have been generous about giving fans of the singer glimpses into the initial months of their first child’s life, as well as their preparation for his arrival.

In early April, the twosome enjoyed a Game of Thrones-inspired baby shower, complete with lots of florals, a Renaissance-themed spread and even a “Winter Is Coming” cake.

He's a tired boy this morning. #love #babies

The couple also shared a peek into their son’s nursery with PEOPLE in June. The room was made with adventure in mind, featuring an industrial design with modern touches — and a space where Odin can enjoy his dad’s tunes when he isn’t able to accompany him on recording sessions.

“[Nick]’s going to record an album, a private album of all our favorite nursery songs,” Kitt Carter said in April. “So when he does have to travel and we’re not able to go with him, we can play it.”

After following these guys for about 20 (!) years, it is nice to see them all happily married with babies 🙂 it makes me feel a little bit old, but its also kind of like we all grew up together and now they bring their kids to shows, and the fans bring theirs as well! Maybe now that they’ve all had kids, they can work on Backstreet: the Next Generation lol

He’s cute. I think it’s terrible that so many people were commenting that he had microcephaly when he was first born. Disgusting that people would judge and jump to that conclusion.

Odin is such a cute baby. The spitting image of his father. Nice to see Nick back in the studio with the boys working on the new BSB album.
