A “Dancing With the Stars” alum can use some prayers and good thoughts right now. Nick Carter’s wife Lauren Kitt experienced some complications during the delivery of their third child on April 21, 2021. The Backstreet Boys member took to social media to update his fans on what’s been happening and has asked for strength to “protect mommy and baby.”

UPDATE: Carter tweeted on April 24 that they had to stay in the hospital another night and thanked his fans for their kind words. Then on Monday, April 26, he wrote, “Ok everyone, I wanted to let you know that finally, we are home safe and sound. Baby is doing so much better. I’m going to share a little picture with you really soon. Thank you again for all your love.”

He later posted a photo of himself, Kitt, and their new baby girl to Instagram, writing, “I would like to thank the amazing doctors, nurses, & staff at ⁦‪@southernhillshospitallv‬⁩ NICU for taking such good care of our baby. We know it’s not easy, especially during this time. We are so grateful for everything you’ve done for us @laurenkittcarter and baby are home and doing well.”

The little girl’s name is yet to be revealed.

Carter Said the Delivery Had ‘Minor Complications’

Carter first informed his fans that they were at the hospital awaiting the arrival of baby No. 3 with an Instagram post that reads, “Yes I’m a believer. I ask god to give us strength to protect mommy and baby. #fatherhood #prayers.”

He later tweeted, “We are proud to announce that our baby has officially arrived. But as a parent knows all to very well, sometimes things don’t turn out the way you plan it. We have been experiencing some minor complications but things are looking a little better after the first night.”

He added in a second tweet, “I wanted to thank everyone for all the prayers and good thoughts during this time. We will keep you updated.”

Overnight on April 23, Carter posted an update, writing, “Ok. So everything is looking better but we’re not out of the woods yet. 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.”

He also posted a video of his daughter Saoirse and wrote, “I miss our babies but we have to stay another night. We’ll be home soon.”

Carter met Kitt, a fitness trainer and actress, on a blind date in 2008, according to an interview they did with US Weekly. Kitt said her first impression of him was arrogance.

“Initially, not knowing him, I thought he was arrogant. Come to find out, he was just shy. Because he didn’t stand up to greet me, he was just kind of like, ‘Hey, what’s up?’ I just needed to get to know him a little bit better. Once that happened, he was very loving and warm and vulnerable and sweet,” said Kitt.

Carter added, “I could tell she needed someone like me to come in and love her and protect her and hold her. I just felt like she needed me.”

The couple got married in April 2014 and welcomed son Odin in April 2016, followed by their daughter Saoirse in October 2019. They have also been open about having endured two miscarriages, one before Odin was born and one in between their first two children.

They talked about their first miscarriage during Carter’s time on “Dancing With the Stars,” with Kitt saying in a video package, “t was really hard on Nick and just watching him get so excited about something and then to just see him so hurt.”

And at the time of the second miscarriage, Carter wrote on Twitter, “God give us peace during this time. I really was looking forward to meeting her after 3 months. I’m heartbroken.”

We will keep this post updated as Carter shares more news about the birth of their third child.
