Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys and his wife, Lauren Kitt Carter, announced they’re having a second child after losing a baby to a miscarriage.
Back in March, in honor of International Women’s Day, Lauren opened up about her devastating loss by posting a photo of her ultrasound alongside a caption on Instagram.
On “what would have been [her] due date,” Lauren said she wanted to talk about the painful subject of miscarriage because as “women and parents,” sometimes people “suffer in silence.”

Debated on whether or not to post this but since today would have been my Due Date and it’s #internationalwomensday I thought I’d share with you all an often shameful subject that we as Women and Parents suffer in silence. Shameful because as a woman I am supposed to create life and when failing to do so feels like failure as a human. I accept circumstances out of our control and I’ve moved on from my losses, days like today remind me just how fortunate I am to have a healthy child and how BADASS women are, how much we endure with a smile on our face. If you are struggling to start a family or have had a loss this post is for you, you’re not alone and there is always hope. Thankfully I have access to great Dr’s and healthcare professionals but sadly many women don’t so in honor of our baby girl and #internationalwomensday I am making a donation to @everymomcounts in hopes of aiding future parents from preventable illnesses and in some cases death. #women #health #midwives #babies #pregnancyloss #miscarriage #angelbabies #mom #dad #parents *** I’ve gotten DM’s and comments about my ultrasound date, I didn’t think I had to explain every medical detail but for those that are so concerned…when I went to see my doctor I gave them, to the best of my knowledge, the first day of my last period and so they put in that date. Once I had my tests and measurements they realized I had gotten my date wrong and adjusted my records accordingly. My DD was then also adjusted to 3-8-19***
She continued her post by saying the subject is often “shameful” because:

God give us peace during this time. I really was looking forward to meeting her after 3 months. ?. I’m heart broken.

Her husband, Nick, said their little girl who passed away “was a little sister for Odin.”
Months later, the couple who desperately wanted a second child so that their 3-year-old son, Odin Reign, could become a big brother shared some good news with fans.
Less than a year since Nick, 39, and Lauren were pregnant with a little girl, they announced they’re expecting a rainbow baby.
Lauren said a day in the park turned into an “impromptu family” photo shoot and baby reveal.
However, the couple hasn’t revealed when their baby is due.
