Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter is shattered at the loss of his baby girl. The 38-year-old revealed that his wife Lauren Kitt had suffered a miscarriage. Carter took to Twitter to share his loss, adding that he was ‘really looking forward’ to seeing his daughter after three months. He confirmed that Lauren was pregnant with a baby girl.
The couple had welcomed their first child in 2016, after a 30-hour labour at home. Just before Lauren gave birth to Odin, the couple had celebrated the baby shower with a Game of Thrones theme. After the announcement of their loss, Carter tweeted that he’ll cancel his solo concert which was to be held at the Barranco Arena in Lima, Peru, scheduled for September 10.
However, he later changed his mind and decided he’ll perform, thanking the love of his fans.
According to PEOPLE magazine, the couple spoke of their struggle to have children back in November 2015. On a pre-taped video, Carter said that he was expecting his first child and elaborated on the year-long pregnancy which also included a miscarriage.
“It’s been rocky, to be quite honest with you. There have been times when we thought it wouldn’t happen,” Carter was quoted as saying by PEOPLE.
Nick and Lauren have been married since 2014.
