Nick Carter is a busy man. He just finished his season on Dancing With The Stars and will be embarking on a 2 month solo tour as well as a Backstreet Boys tour next year. And in between all that the singer is going to welcome his first child with wife Lauren.
Even though Nick’s dance card seems pretty full, he’s looking forward to taking some time off and dedicating it to his wife and unborn child. Nick told PEOPLE that he’s ready for some much needed time off.
“I’m taking a couple of well-needed months off to be with my wife and really cater to her in this time. And then, in April, we’re going to take a little time off there as well for when the baby comes.”
Awww, I love that he wants to ‘cater to’ his wife! All pregnancies are special, but first pregnancies are really something extra special for a couple to experience. Nick also talked about how excited he and Lauren were to be having their very own backstreet boy.
“My wife really wanted a boy, so I’m just happy it turned out that way. But we would have been happy either way.”
Lauren made sure to add, “We just wanted a healthy baby, but preferably a healthy baby boy.”
I think it’s perfectly ok to have a ‘preferred gender’ because every parent knows that it really doesn’t matter, we all just want a healthy baby! Sounds like Nick is going to enjoy the next few months taking care of his little family!
