Nick Carter and Lauren Kitt Carter welcome baby boy

Congratulations to Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter and his wife Lauren Kitt Carter, who have welcomed a baby boy into the world!

The pair have named their first child Odin Reign Carter, who, according to ET, arrived after a 30 hour labour during a water birth at home on Tuesday.

A few days ago, Lauren revealed that she had plans for a home birth. She told E! News “We don’t have a to-go bag because we are planning a home birth if all goes to plan. If [Nick] wants to film it, he can. I’m getting him a snorkel and mask.

The pair kept the unusual name under wraps beforehand, although Nick confirmed that the pair had chosen a name for their baby during the premiere of Dead 7 on April 1. He revealed: “It’s a very strong name. We can’t say the name yet. I’ve been instructed by my wife to keep it under wraps, but we have a name.” Odin, in Germanic mythology, is a “widely revered god.”

Prior to the birth, the couple held a Game of Thrones themed baby shower to celebrate. Around 60 guests were in attendance, including Nick’s fellow Backstreet Boys members Kevin Richardson and A.J. McLean.

Congratulations to Nick and Lauren on the birth of Odin, from all of us here at CelebMix. We wish you happiness in abundance with your new bundle of joy.
