Nick and Lauren Carter have welcomed their third child together.

The Backstreet Boys alum and his wife have become parents for the third time, as Lauren recently gave birth to a baby sibling for son Odin Reign, five, and daughter Saoirse, 18 months.

Nick confirmed the news in a social media post on Thursday (04.22.21), where he wrote: "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.

"I wanted to thank everyone for all the prayers and good thoughts during this time. We will keep you updated (sic)"

The 41-year-old singer did not confirm the gender or the name of his new-born baby.

Nick and Lauren announced they were expecting back in January, which came after the couple experienced multiple devastating miscarriages in their journey for a third child.

 

Lauren said: "I was fully set on just having two children and I had prepared for that and made arrangements for that. We were going to have two children and it was a surprise. I didn't find out I was pregnant till I was about five-and-a-half months pregnant. I didn't have any symptoms, I didn't have anything indicating that I was pregnant. 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."

Lauren feared she was seriously ill rather than pregnant and they were considering surrogacy.

She added: "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.

"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."
