Nick Carter and wife expecting third child: Couple admit ‘surprise’ at discovering Lauren was five months pregnant following miscarriages after believing bump was a tumour
Nick and Lauren Carter are expecting their third child together.
The Backstreet Boys alum and his wife – who are parents to Odin, four, and Saoirse, 15 months – have confirmed they are set to become parents for the third time after devastating multiple miscarriages.
Lauren told PEOPLE: ‘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.”‘
Lauren said she was not supposed to be able to have any more children due to her medical history and feared she possibly had a tumour.
She feared she was seriously ill rather than pregnant and revealed they had been considering surrogacy.
The couple have said they consider their news to be a ‘blessing’ especially after 2020 was such a tough year for everyone.
