“Ok everyone, I wanted to let you know that finally, we are home safe and sound. Baby is doing so much better,” Nick Carter tweeted along with a smiley face and baby bottle emoji. “I’m going to share a little picture with you really soon. Thank you again for all your love.”
Just days before Wednesday, Carter shared a selfie on social media. In the photo, the singer can be seen wearing scrubs and a face mask looking very bewildered as he sits in the hospital.
“Yes I’m a believer. I ask god to give us strength to protect mommy and baby. ???????? #fatherhood #prayers,” he captioned the candid shot.
“As a parent knows all [too] very well, sometimes things don’t turn out the way you plan it,” Carter later wrote after his child arrived. “We have been experiencing some minor complications but things are looking a little better after the first night.”
“Ok. So everything is looking better but we’re not out of the woods yet,” he added in another update. “We have to stay in the hospital one more night. But Daddy and Mommy are watching baby like a Hawk. Thank you again for all your love and support. We see you.”
The musician, who also shares son Odin Reign, 5, and daughter Saoirse, 18 months, with Lauren, whom he married in 2014, also shared a cute home video of his daughter taken before they left for the hospital earlier this week.
“Took this video of Saoirse before we left for the hospital. I miss our babies but we have to stay another night. We’ll be home soon,” he captioned the video of his daughter.
We are so happy this family has been reunited and that the BSB star has kept fans apprised of all the ups and downs that are common amid a birth. It has been a real journey for the pair. The couple announced their pregnancy in January after having suffered multiple miscarriages.

The pregnancy was unplanned and took Lauren by surprise. She did not learn of her pregnancy until she was already 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 at the time. “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.”
Throughout her pregnancy, Lauren and the rest of the Carter family had been quarantining together in Las Vegas. What a momentous time for the whole family We are so glad they have returned home with their newest member after what must have been a trying few days.
