Nick Carter may credit his siblings for introducing him to Lauren Kitt Carter, who would later become his wife.
Sparks flared between the two of them as soon as Nick’s sister Angel Carter and late brother Aaron Carter almost made him meet their buddy Lauren. Nick and Lauren were married and had a child less than five years after they first met.
In 2018, Nick said, “It’s funny, I have two families.” I’ve had one with the boys ever since I was 12 years old. Since I met my wife, which has been about ten years, I have my new one. And it’s interesting because having a strong lady like her who I love and trust means a lot to me. I
She is an actress
Lauren has made appearances in a number of films and TV shows. She and her husband co-starred in the SyFy movie Dead 7 in 2016, which Nick also created.
At the film’s premiere, the singer told PEOPLE, “She blows me away as an actress. “I’m looking to her for advice. I like spending time with you. Acting is challenging. It is quite difficult, and the one quality about her that I saw was that she was very skilled in it.
She met Nick through his family
Angel and Aaron, two of Nick’s brothers, were friends with Lauren and were aware of Nick’s compatibility with her. The two met while watching a movie at Nick’s residence in 2009.
After three hours of talking on my balcony with a view of the ocean, we kept seeing shooting stars, Nick recalled to Inside Weddings. It became quiet as we both exchanged glances.
She helped Nick through his proposal
On a private island in the Florida Keys, now lovingly referred to as “Engagement Island,” the boyband member proposed to his then-girlfriend in 2013. He knelt down and displayed a seven-carat diamond ring made by XIV KARATS.
She responded “Yes,” and I was left feeling helpless. To PEOPLE, Nick recalled. “She told me, ‘You’re meant to put it on my finger,’ so I did. I was stunned.
Lauren had the same surprise. “I didn’t anticipate it. It simply felt incredibly bizarre, she continued. “We’re both on cloud nine right now and just so in love.”
Later, on April 12, 2014, the pair exchanged vows in Santa Barbara, California.
She and Nick have three children
In April 2016, they gave birth to a son they named Odin Reign. In October 2019, Lauren gave birth to their second child, a daughter named Saoirse Reign. Daughter Pearl, their third child, was born on April 21, 2021.
The pair has been open about their struggle with miscarriages throughout the years. Lauren told PEOPLE in January 2021, “I was fully set on just having two children and I had prepared for that and made arrangements for that.” I wasn’t pregnant [with our third child] until I was around five and a half months along when I found out.
Nick continued, “With everything that 2020 has given to the entire world, I look at it as a blessing.” in reference to the unexpected pregnancy.
She costarred on I Heart Nick Carter
The duo appeared together in the VH1 reality series I Heart Nick Carter in 2014. Following their engagement, the series culminated on the day of their nuptials.
The Athens Banner-Herald interviewed Lauren in September 2014 on her life as a reality TV star. I was definitely nervous to appear on the show, she admitted. “I am a quiet person with a tiny, close-knit family and friends. They are my tribe, I say. My scariest worry was becoming vulnerable and sharing what I’ve gone through with any of my family or friends because I’m very sensitive and protective of them.
She was a fitness YouTuber
Lauren started making videos for her YouTube account Kitt Fit in 2013. Although she ceased streaming the next year, you may still view her workouts and fitness advice.
She started the channel to open up fitness to everyone. “I’m very inspired by people who tell me their stories because that’s why I put out the Kitt Fit videos,” she said, according to The Athens Banner-Herald. “I am aware of how challenging and costly [exercise] can be. Being fit and healthy does have a price. I’m willing to try anything and everything and to state that it “works for me.” Helping others makes me feel wonderful inside.
She appeared in Nick’s music videos
With her spouse, Lauren has been in a few music videos throughout the years. In the music video for the Backstreet Boys and Florida Georgia Line song “God, Your Mama, and Me,” she and her son Odin made an appearance.
Additionally, Nick has featured Lauren in some of his solo music videos, such as “Burning Up” and “Just One Kiss.” In 2022, she had an appearance with her three children in the “Easy” music video by Nick and Jimmie Allen.
She founded Crypto Cafe
Lauren started Crypto Cafe in February 2023, a learning platform that dissects the cryptocurrency market. Along with having a presence on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube, Crypto Cafe also publishes a weekly e-newsletter.
