Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter and his spouse Lauren Kitt Carter are said to be expanding their family.

Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter and his wife Lauren Kitt Carter are reportedly expecting a baby.

The 35-year-old singer, who is currently competing on America’s version of Dancing with the Stars, tied the knot with actress-and-fitness expert Lauren in 2014 after dating for several years.

And sources tell People magazine the couple are now entering a very exciting phase in the marriage, with reports of Lauren being pregnant with their first child together.

Nick popped the question during a vacation to the Florida Keys in February 2013 with a seven-carat diamond after sailing to a nearby island during their stay.

He previously admitted proposing to Lauren was one of the most terrifying experiences of his life.

“I had the ring in my pocket for two weeks,” he told People. “I was like, ‘I don’t want it anymore!’ It was driving me insane. I just wanted to get it out of my hands and on to hers.”

The couple exchanged vows under an altar of white roses in front of their family and friends, which included Nick’s bandmates Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and AJ McLean.

AJ discussed the ceremony, describing it as “beautiful, rustic” and “very small”, and his daughter Ava was also a flower girl at the wedding.

“It was bittersweet. We’re so proud of him,” he told the publication. “To see our little baby brother finally make that big, big final step. Next step is having kids. Obviously they just got married, so obviously take your time.”

Backstreet Boy Brian has been married to Leighanne Wallace since 2000 and the couple share 12-year-old son Baylee together.

And just after Nick married, Brian seconded AJ’s take on welcoming children.

“Enjoy your time together first,” Brian said when addressing when Nick and Lauren should have kids.
