Nick Carter, 90s heartthrob and one of the more popular and well-known members of the Backstreet Boys, has just become a father, and he couldn’t be more thrilled. According to E! Online, he kissed the baby bump of his wife Lauren Kitt during his red carpet appearance at the premiere of the Syfy TV movie Dead 7.

Nick and his wife both star in the movie along with his band mates A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough, along with other 90s boy band members like *NSYNC’s Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and 98 Degrees’ Jeff Timmons.
In November of 2015, it was announced that the couple is expecting their first child together after being married since 2014. They later revealed that the child would be a boy during an episode of Dancing With the Stars. Nick Carter and Lauren Kitt said that the child would be delivered naturally. Lauren Kitt joked about Nick Carter filming her delivering the child.
“If he wants to film it, he can. I’m getting him a snorkel and mask.”
Nick Carter joined in on the joke.
“Yeah, I am going to have my GoPro ready to go.”
The baby, a son named Odin, was born in late April, and fans are yet to find out whether Nick Carter actually did film the birth!

Now that the baby has been born, Nick Carter is officially the last Backstreet Boy to become a parent. It’s rather fitting because he’s actually the youngest of the bunch as well. According to E! Online, the Backstreet Boys have signed up for a nine show deal with Live Nation to test the waters for a long-term Vegas residency, similar to those of Britney Spears and J.Lo.
Nick Carter spoke on the deal with Live Nation.
“If it does really well, then I think that’ll open that door and then in future we’ll do it. So that’s definitely going to happen but we’re going to do a trial run first.”
No dates and places are set in stone, but fans can rest assured that they will be seeing the five Backstreet Boys back in an action singing all their 90s hits in a “very big and spectacular show” as Nick would say himself.

Fellow Backstreet Boy member Kevin Richardson spoke on his take for the residency.
“It seemed really convenient for the family! A Vegas residency, now that we’re all fathers, could be very convenient for us… We won’t have to travel so much.”
But before any residency, he says, there’s new music and a world tour to complete. Richardson also went on to say that the Backstreet Boys are recording a new album.
When it comes to the eventual tour, fans are wondering whether the Spice Girls will be joining Nick Carter and the rest of the group on the road. After all, the band did tease it last year.

Before the tour and going back into music, Nick kept himself busy by working on Dead 7. According to Polygon, Nick Carter made Dead 7 happen by working on it for almost nine years.
“I wrote the screenplay for Dead 7 because I wanted to act in a specific type of movie, and at the time, there just wasn’t anything out there. I was doing back to back world tours, too, so I couldn’t sign on to any movie for a long period of time.”
It seems that Nick Carter worked on the movie every time he had a break from touring and performing, and when he had finished the script he was so proud of what he had accomplished. He enjoyed the way everything came together for him, but the most exciting aspect was that the completed script meant that he finally got to try his hand at acting.
