In 2014, Backstreet Boy Nick Carter married actress Lauren Kitt.

Two years later, the couple welcomed their first child, a son named Odin Reign.

That same year, Carter released the song he wrote for his wife called “I Will Wait.”

Some of the lyrics read:

I promise darling that I won’t sleep
Until we reached the highest mountain peak
Thanks for the times that you were there for me
So let me payback all your charity

So, I will wait for you
This love was made for two
And I’ll hold on this time
No, I won’t leave you behind

On September 10, Carter revealed that Lauren had been expecting baby number two when they suffered a miscarriage at 16 weeks along.

The dad wrote:

God give us peace during this time. I really was looking forward to meeting her after three months. I’m heart broken.

The singer said their second child would have been Otis’s little sister:

Lauren underwent a procedure on September 11.

Overwhelmingly thankful in so many ways.

Carter asked for “prayers and peace” during the difficult time:

Carter wrote:

So I was wrong it was 16 weeks along. We had the procedure yesterday. Please pray for us to have peace and healing during this time. Thank you for all your love and support through everything. We love you.

According to American Pregnancy, studies have shown that “anywhere from 10-25 percent of all clinically recognized pregnancies will end in miscarriage.” Anyone with concerns or questions about miscarriages, can contact this helpline at 1-800-672-2296.
