Nick Carter Reveals Wife’s Baby Struggle
Pop star Nick Carter and his wife Lauren had a difficult time trying to expand their family, and they are thrilled to finally be expecting a baby.
The Backstreet Boys singer is currently a top contender on Dancing with the Stars, and on Monday’s episode he spoke out about his wife’s pregnancy for the first time after reports surfaced last week.
Nick grew emotional as he began to talk about their difficulties while they were trying to conceive, saying, “We’ve been trying to have a baby for about a year now. It’s been rocky, to be quite honest with you. There’s been times when we thought it wouldn’t happen.”
“We were pregnant before and we lost the baby,” Lauren added. “It was really hard on Nick. Just watching him get so excited about something then just see him so hurt was hard.”
Carter and his professional partner Sharna Burgess paid tribute to Lauren with a contemporary dance to a rendition of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” and the number moved the judges, who awarded them a perfect score of 30, their first top marks of the season.
Lauren is four months pregnant and the couple learned the sex of their baby during the live broadcast by opening a box filled with blue balloons, indicating an arrival of another Backstreet boy.
