Nick Carter is a dad, welcomes baby boy with wife Lauren



Remember when we were wee teens and dreamed of having Nick Carter’s babies when we grew up, got married and lived happily/famously ever after?

Well, lucky for us, we didn’t. But Lauren Carter sure did. The couple welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Odin Reign Carter arrived after 30 hours of labor during a home water birth.

“It’s a very strong name,” the 36-year-old singer said at the April 1 premiere of his Syfy film, Dead7, which also stars fellow Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean, NSync’s Joey Fatone and even Carter’s wife.

According to Google, Odin is a “widely revered god” in Germanic mythology, so the couple’s Game of Thrones baby shower sort of makes sense-ish?

“I don’t want to get all sappy, [but] she’s the reason I felt comfortable, and I knew that she would be the perfect mother,” Carter said of his wife. “It’s crazy how much more in love you can become when you start this phase of your life.”
