After the heartbreak of experiencing multiple miscarriages, Nick Carter and his wife Lauren Kitt Carter are pregnant.
The couple are also parents to Odin, 4, and Saoirse, 15 months. After their prior pregnancy losses, they did expect to be able to conceive naturally again.
Lauren, who is due in April, didn’t realize she was pregnant until she went to a doctors appointment and discovered she was five-and-a-half-months along.
“I didn’t have any symptoms, I didn’t have anything indicating that I was pregnant,” she told People. “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.’ I was not supposed to be able to have any more children, so I never assumed that I was pregnant.”
“I thought I had a tumor because there was just no way that I could be pregnant, from just my medical history and the things that I did to ensure that I just had my two children,” Lauren added. “Even Nick, like a couple of weeks prior to that, was talking about possibly getting a surrogate, possibly having a third child. It was just something we were talking about.”
As the couple prepare to welcome their third child, they have been quarantining in Las Vegas as a family.
“For us, it’s all about just creating an environment for our children that is peaceful,” Nick said.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
