(April 12, 2014 - Present)
Lauren Kitt is married to Nick Carter. They started dating on October 20, 2008, after meeting through mutual friends. After getting engaged on 20th February 2013, they were married on 12th April 2014 and have been married for 6 years.
They have two children, a son, Odin Reign, 4, and a baby girl, Saoirse, 1.
Nick never had to wonder what his family would think of his girlfriend, fitness expert, and actress Lauren Kitt after they began dating in 2009. That’s because she was introduced to Nick through his sister, Angel, and brother, Aaron Carter, who knew Lauren before him, intuitively knew the couple would enjoy each other’s company and persuaded them to meet. The two were introduced at a movie night at Nick’s house in October 2008, and although Lauren was unimpressed with Nick at first, where a sign from the heavens seemed to approve the match and a relationship eventually blossomed. As it grew more serious, Lauren recalled that she had to decide between continuing her career and giving the romance a chance. they were in a relationship with each other for five years. Before that, Lauren is deeply committed to environmental issues and animal rights and is the proud co-parent (with Nick) of two dogs, Igby and Nacho, and a bambino cat named Mulder.
Just like best friend and fellow wife, Rochelle McLean, helping her husband with his addition, Lauren has helped Nick kept him away from suicide and alcoholism. Nick then proposed to Lauren on 20th February 2013 in the Florida Keys. It happened on tour in Australia when separated from his love for the longest time since they met and Nick then realized that he couldn’t live without her. After obtaining permission from Lauren’s father to marry her, Nick set off on a mission to design the perfect engagement ring. He sent Lauren to look at jewelry for her birthday with his business manager. A diamond on one particular necklace captivated Lauren, so Nick had the stone removed and set into a ring. So after holding the engagement ring in his pockets for two weeks, he decided to pop the question. Carter and Kitt, along with some close friends and Kitt's father, set out to sea on a boat ride to a private island in Key West where Carter had spent time as a child. But it wasn’t all smooth sailing because it started storming for three days and the boat broke down several times, forcing the two to stop and tinker with the engine. But all was forgotten when they arrived on the island, where Lauren’s father and Nick’s best friend were on hand to witness Nick dropped to one knee and presented Lauren to be his wife with a 7-carat pear-shaped diamond ring with baguette side stones set in platinum from posh Rodeo Drive jeweler XIV Karats in Beverly Hills. Along with her best friend and the other wives, Kristin Richardson, Leighanne Littrell, and Leigh Dorough, Kitt also has been a target for cyber-bullying and death threats ever since she began dating Nick Carter from fans who believe they should be with Carter, not her and doesn’t understand why women fans were attacking her or even each other as she believes women were supposed to be supportive of each other, but luckily, Nick is quick to come to her defense against haters.
After a 13 month long engagement, the couple exchanged their vows on Saturday, April 12th, 2014 in an intimate ceremony at the Bacara Resort & Spa with the lush grounds and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara, California, and since then, they are living their blissful life. Although Nick's sister, Angel, couldn't make it as he missed her big day due to his and Lauren's coed bachelor bachelorette party in Las Vegas back in February but sends her blessing and brother Aaron couldn't make it, he had his singing brothers there — all five of the Backstreet Boys witnessed the singer’s nuptials. Howie D was the only boy band member who was selected to be one of his five groomsmen, with his best man being longtime friend Shadwick. Preceding the resplendent bride were her bridesmaids, one of them was Alexandra, Lauren’s maid of honor and her sister and AJ McLean’s wife, Rochelle, wearing mismatched dresses, Ava, Rochelle, and A.J's daughter, served as an adorable flower girl, and the couple’s two dogs, who carried the rings on bone-shaped pillows. Lauren looked radiant as she made her way down the featured clusters of candles housed in antique lanterns alongside ivory flowers and succulents aisle in a custom chic fit-and-flare gown featuring a lace sweetheart-neckline bodice and floor-length veil, affixed to her intricate elegant chignon braided updo, leaving all attention to her sparkling diamond earrings and matching cuff bracelet, carrying a fragrant bouquet of anemones, white roses, herbs, hydrangeas, orchids, and moss. Nick, dressed in a black tuxedo, white blouse, and black bow-tie by Anthony Franco Designs, couldn’t hold back the tears the minute he saw his bride-to-be. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres before moving to an outdoor, Spanish-style courtyard illuminated with strings of old-fashioned light bulbs for an organic elegance with a rustic twist celebration that includes a sit-down dinner, long wooden tables boasted with “runners” of floral arrangements that included Spanish moss, ivory garden roses, tulips, hyacinths, violet orchids, and succulents. Additionally, herbs, such as sage and rosemary were also incorporated into the décor.
Heartfelt toasts from Lauren’s father and sister and Nick’s fellow bandmates, all of them shedding a tear, invoked moments of love and reflection. After cutting their elegant five-tiered cake, which was covered in fresh purple and white flowers that matched the centerpieces, the newlyweds and their guests hit the dance floor for hours of dancing, located inside an adjacent ballroom awash in lavender lighting. Although the reception wrapped around 11 PM, a Moroccan-themed after-party, complete with bright red and orange lighting, and hookahs, kept guests celebrating until 2 AM. Lauren even changed into a flowing white gown embellished with gold, silver, and orange embroidery, which was inspired by their upcoming honeymoon to Morocco, to complement the style of the celebration. Lauren and Nick’s journey to the altar was documented in the 2014 reality VH1 series “I Heart Nick Carter.” The show followed the newly engaged couple’s journey to the altar and gave viewers an inside look at how Nick and Lauren learn to balance demanding careers, outrageous families, and planning a wedding. They shared their big day on national TV.
Kitt was expecting her first child after previously suffering a miscarriage. On November 2, the couple found out live on Dancing with the Stars that they are expecting a baby boy. On April 19, 2016, Kitt gave birth to her first son, Odin Reign, after 30 hours of labor.

Lauren Kitt and Nick Carter - Child - Pearl

Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter and his wife, Lauren Kitt, have chosen the name Pearl for their 6-week-old daughter.
Meet Pearl! Nick Carter and Lauren Kitt have finally shared the name of their third child, one month after she was born.
Pearl, who was born on April 21, joined brother, Odin, 5, and 20-month-old sister, Saoirse.
“Funny enough, that (Pearl) was the name Lauren wanted to give to [our eldest daughter] Saoirse,” Carter, 41, told Us Weekly. “Essentially, we kind of gave up on the name, but Lauren liked Pearl. Then we discovered that we were going to have another baby. That’s when I was like, ‘Listen, let’s go with what you wanted.’ So she became Pearl.”
Pearl was a top 25 name in the late nineteenth century but then it cooled for many years, according to Nameberry.com. It re-entered the top 1000 in 2010.
Kitt was drawn to the moniker because of how easily it rolls off the tongue.
“We needed something easier to say than Saoirse,” she said.
On April 22, Carter announced the birth of their youngest child on Twitter, revealing that she had “been experiencing some minor complications” during her arrival. But one week later, they took their new daughter home to meet siblings Odin and Saoirse.
The boy band member also shared an Instagram photo of himself looking visibly distressed in a surgical cap and scrubs.
“Yes, I’m a believer. I ask God to give us strength to protect mommy and baby,” he captioned the image.
Five days later, Kitt and Pearl were discharged from the hospital.
“Ok everyone, I wanted to let you know that finally, we are home safe and sound,” Carter wrote on Twitter. “Baby is doing so much better.”
Carter also introduced Pearl to his 1.6 million Instagram followers. "Here’s she is. ❤️ We are proud to finally give you all a first glance of our little princess Pearl. ❤️," he captioned a video of the adorable baby sleeping on his chest.
Kitt, 38, joked that they chose a name with one syllable because "we needed something easier to say than Saoirse."
The couple chose Saoirse's moniker after watching 2014's Song of the Sea. "I fell in love with this little girl character who was, like, the little sister of this older blonde boy," Carter explained. "They were brother and sister, and her name is Saoirse."
Kitt said that the toddler is "extremely sweet and talkative for her age" Kitt said. "She’s just a joy to be around right now watching her explore and discover and learn."
She's also taking after her father. "Saoirse's into music and loves to dance," the House of Carters alum gushed. "She loves '80s music like me, so I can put it on all the time. She’ll sit there and watch these old music videos."
Meanwhile, Odin is a "nature boy." According to Carter, their eldest "loves bugs and science projects and is an analytic person." "I would try to put music videos on, but he’s like, 'Eh, whatever.' Or if I try playing sports with him, he’s like, 'Eh, whatever.'"
The teen idol and Kitt tied the knot in 2014. They took to social media in January to share the news that they were expecting a third child — but did not anticipate conceiving naturally again after "multiple miscarriages."
“Sometimes life blesses you with little surprises,” Carter wrote on Instagram at the time.
"I didn't have any symptoms; I didn't have anything indicating that I was pregnant," Kitt told PEOPLE after she learned she was five and a half months pregnant. "I thought I had a tumor because there was just no way that I could be pregnant, from just my medical history and the things that I did to ensure that I just had my two children."

2nd October, 2019 - Child

Welcome to the world! One week after Nick Carter and Lauren Kitt’s daughter arrived, the couple is debuting her with Us Weekly exclusively.
Their bundle of joy is named Saoirse Reign Carter. In the little one’s first photos with her parents, she slept peacefully in the Backstreet Boys member’s arms while wrapped in a brown blanket.
Us broke the news that the singer, 39, and the fitness guru, 36, welcomed their second child on October 2. (Big brother Odin, 3, was born in 2016.) “Mom and daughter are doing great,” a rep from EMC Bowery confirmed to Us at the time.
The New York native shared a close-up pic on Instagram of his baby girl’s hand, wrapped around his finger. “Daddy’s little girl,” Carter captioned the sweet shot.
He and the Pro Derm Aesthetics cofounder announced in May that they were expecting baby No. 2. “Thank You, God for giving us the greatest gift we could ever ask for. #happiness #family,” the Grammy nominee captioned the Instagram reveal at the time.
Kitt added with a post of her own: “Day at the park in Amsterdam turned into an impromptu family photo op and baby bump reveal. Loving these moments with my boys.”
The pair’s news came nearly a year after the actress suffered a miscarriage. Carter shared the loss on Twitter in September 2018, writing, “God give us peace during this time. I was really looking forward to meeting her after 3 months. I’m heartbroken.”
In 2015, Kitt opened up about a previous miscarriage she’d suffered before conceiving Odin. “It was really hard on Nick and just watching him get so excited about something and then to just see him so hurt,” she said during a pretaped Dancing With the Stars video. “That was hard.”
The California native described the shame she’d experienced on Instagram because of her miscarriages, writing, “As a woman, I am supposed to create life and ... failing to do so feels like failure as a human.”
She and Carter tied the knot in 2014 after six years of dating. The couple welcomed their second child, a rainbow baby girl they named Saoirse (pronounced SEER-sha), on Oct. 2, 2019. After sharing in September 2018 that Lauren had suffered a miscarriage, Nick wrote a sweet note to Lauren when sharing the first-ever photo of baby Saoirse's face.
"To my incredibly strong wife," he wrote. "For two years I watched you endure some of the hardest things a husband could ever witness. Going through the ups and downs of pregnancy all in the hopes that just maybe, with a little help from up above, we would get to this point. I'll never forget the moment You asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I said nothing. But deep down inside I knew what I really wanted. So on January 28th, 2019 when I walked out of that bathroom with that positive test I already knew that Saoirse was coming back to us. I just want to thank you for giving me the life, love, and family that I always wanted. You are a true warrior and I love you." So dang sweet.

Lauren Kitt and Nick Carter - Child - Odin Reign

Congrats are for Nick Carter and his wife, Lauren, who welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday!
ET has exclusively learned that their son, Odin Reign Carter, arrived after 30 hours of labor during a water birth at home. Their new bundle of joy weighed in at 8 pounds, 11 ounces.
While the pair kept the name under wraps throughout Lauren’s pregnancy, Nick did tell ET earlier this month that they had picked out a powerful moniker for their first child. Odin, in Germanic mythology, is a "widely revered god."
"It's a very strong name," the 36-year-old singer revealed to ET's Katie Krause at the April 1 premiere of his Syfy film, Dead7. "We can't say the name yet. I've been instructed by my wife to keep it under wraps, but we have a name."
While discussing how excited he was to become a parent, the Backstreet Boys star also gushed about how eager he was to see his wife take on motherhood.
"I don't want to get all sappy, [but] she's the reason I felt comfortable, and I knew that she would be the perfect mother," Nick explained. "She would be able to help me teach our child all the things that he needs to learn."
The couple shared their maternity pics with ET earlier this year, which Nick admitted was a moving experience in its own right.
"I hate getting emotional but seeing her like that triggered this influx of emotions that really made me realize what's happening in our life," he said. "Without each other, the two of us would never have gotten to this point, so it feels amazing and it's crazy how much more in love you can become when you start this phase of your life."
It’s official, all five of the Backstreet Boys are now dads! Nick Carter and his wife Lauren Kitt have welcomed their first child together — a precious baby boy. How fitting — congrats!

12th April, 2014 - Marriage
Lauren Kitt and Nick Carter - Marriage

Nick Carter is head over heels in love.
In February, The Backstreet Boys star was expected to walk his younger sibling, Angel, down the aisle at her wedding to Corey Conrad at Newhall Mansion in Piru, California, on Saturday, but opted to celebrate his upcoming nuptials with fiancee Lauren Kitt in Las Vegas instead.
The Everybody hitmaker, 34, was noticeably absent from the ceremony, according to UsMagazine.com, 26-year-old Angel's twin brother, Aaron Carter, was on hand to escort her.
But, according to Angel Carter, there's no bad blood.
"I love my brother Nick. I wish him all the best," the former "House of Carters" star tells toofab in an exclusive statement. "We had a magical wedding weekend."
Angel and her new husband, Corey Conrad, tied the knot on Saturday at the gorgeous Newhall Mansion in Piru, California -- where Angel's twin brother Aaron Carter walked her down the aisle.
Aaron's rep, Steve Honig, declined to comment on Nick's absence but tells toofab, "Aaron was both overjoyed and honored to walk Angel down the aisle on her wedding day and be with his family on such a wonderful and important occasion."
It needs to be clarified who planned their event first -- and neither Aaron nor Angel's reps would say if Nick was even invited to the wedding. So far, Nick hasn't commented on the situation either.
The Carters have a reasonably turbulent history, though.
The family had a big falling out after the death of Leslie Carter, who died of a drug overdose at the age of 25 back in 2012.
Nick says his family blamed him for her death, adding that their relationship became "toxic."
"The communication is something that I'm still trying to work on to this day," he told Dr. Phil. "It's tough when you come from a background like that and an up-and-down roller-coaster home."
And while Aaron played an essential role in the ceremony, the twins' absent older brother had his bash in Las Vegas.
Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter celebrated his upcoming wedding to fiancée Lauren Kitt in style, with a shared lavish joint co-ed bachelor and bachelorette party alongside a group of 15 close friends renting a private room at Ghostbar nightclub at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, over the weekend (2/7-2/8.) Las Vegas Sun reports the celebrations began on Friday night and extended through early Sunday morning.
We drove to Vegas for our bachelor/bachelorette party with our friends Michael and Justin for the sake of an excellent ol' road trip adventure. It was so much fun listening to music, cracking each other up, and enjoying the open road.
Everyone was so excited to be in Vegas together, and emotions were high (in the best way possible!). There was so much joy in our group; it was the first of many traditions leading up to the wedding we celebrated. I'm glad we have that weekend on film to remember forever.
On Friday, February 7, the future Mr. and Mrs. Carter and their bridal party kicked off their first night in Sin City, partying at a VIP booth inside Moon Nightclub. When Moon's cocktail servers presented the dynamic group with a vibrant Ciroc bottle presentation, Carter proceeded to show off his playful side, grabbing glowsticks and twerking with the staff. The couple was photographed being affectionate, kissing, dancing with each other, and sharing some severe PDA on the dance floor throughout the evening.
My girls and I could not wait to let our hair down and have some fun, so we hit the craps table while the guys went to the spa. Some of the guys even asked if they could join us instead. Ha ha.
Nick and I had a fantastic hotel suite connected to the rest of our guests' rooms, which made it so much fun! We all felt like we were at camp!
On Saturday, February 8, Carter and his fellow friends spent the afternoon at Ghostbar Dayclub, the wild, over-the-top daytime bash. Arriving at a warm welcome from hundreds of screaming fans, the Backstreet Boy quickly threw on a pair of neon green sunglasses while posing for photos with high-energy partygoers before being blindfolded in the center of the room for an old-fashioned game of piñata. The crowd erupted a few strokes into the game, and Carter sprayed the hot spot with confetti as he smashed open the pink-and-white donkey-shaped piñata. Then, Carter and his friends returned to their VIP booth, where the jolly singer sported the top of the piñata on his head. Carter was all smiles when he spotted two cocktail servers wearing unicorn heads and capes, asking them to come over and take a photo with him. He later hopped on his Instagram account to post a picture of the fun-filled sight saying, "Check out these horse heads."
Later in the evening, Kitt and her girlfriends, including sister Alexandra, enjoyed dining an elaborate dinner at N9NE Steakhouse. The group ordered seafood, filets, caviar, and the restaurant's famed dessert, S'mores.
Kitt, who turned heads in a revealing white Jay Ahr dress with peek-a-boo cutouts and strappy nude sandal heels, showed off her 7-carat diamond engagement ring on the red carpet upon arrival to Ghostbar. Trying to complement his baby blues, Carter sported a spiffy sapphire blouse with his black suit and joined Kitt on the rug, gushing to tell onlookers how excited he was to marry Kitt and how he's been letting her take the lead on planning their big day.
And the lovebirds weren't shy of showing their affection for one another, with the Backstreet Boy seen giving his wife-to-be a big smooch on the cheek as they kicked off their celebration.
"Wedding planning is going fantastic, that's why I leave it up to her because I work, and I let her plan the wedding," said Carter. "It's been going well, though."
The Backstreet Boy also briefly mentioned to the Sun reporter that he's been filming an upcoming wedding-related reality TV show with VH1 that documents their entire wedding experience. Once inside the club, Ghostbar's cocktail waitresses came out with oversized scorecards that spelled out "Lauren" and "Nick" and presented the bachelor and bachelorette with a celebratory three-tier pink and black cake sported a blinged-out diamond-ring topper. Confidingly, Kitt's girlfriends, humorously placed plastic light-up diamond rings on their fingers while Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On it)" played over the sound system.
The couple looked at each other adoringly while Kitt hand-fed Carter cake before heading outside with Carter's two best men, Shadrick Ferrer and Chris Stensby, and the maid-of-honor, Alexandra Kitt, for a champagne toast overlooking the famed Las Vegas Strip 55 stories below.
Nick tweeted a photo of their celebrations at the Palms Hotel and Ghost Bar, where a group of about 15 friends joined the engaged couple.
"It's about to go down at @palms; just entered the room of ecstasy," wrote Nick alongside a snapshot of champagne and gift bags.
Carter is the last member of the Backstreet Boys to tie the knot.
On the drive home to Malibu Sunday morning, we stopped at Alien Jerky for road snacks and souvenirs. One of the things Nick and I love most about road trips is the fun, exciting places to stop at along the way. You never know what you'll find, and we love exploring whenever we get the chance!
The night before the wedding nuptials, the happy couple newlyweds, engaged in February 2013, held and hosted a rehearsal dinner on Friday night which looked to be Indian themed hosted other Fellow Backstreet Boy members such as A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough. One guest shared a sneak peek into the celebrations, which saw the men dressed in traditional colorful costumes and partying under red marquees.
Carter's bandmate A.J. McLean posted a photo on Instagram Friday while he was getting ready to head to the rehearsal dinner and captioned it with a sweet message to the couple.
"Chillin' at the house getting ready to head to the rehearsal dinner of the wedding most of u thought would never happen, but I'm so happy it is finally!" he wrote before the pre-wedding festivities. "Congrats to my little bro for growing up and finding love. So proud of u, bro. Love u both, @nickcarter and @laurenkitt."
Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough also attended the pre-wedding bash.
Inside Nick's Wedding!
As Long As You Love Me
Lauren Kitt & Nick Carter
April 12, 2014, Santa Barbara, California
Backstreet Boys heartthrob Nick Carter probably had a few "I want it that way" moments when planning his weekend wedding to fiancée Lauren Kitt. And by the looks of it, he got it!
He wanted it that way! So now all the Backstreet Boys are taken! Nick Carter has found "the one" and is now a married boy and officially off the market! The teenage hearts of many women are breaking as it's been announced that Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, who launched countless teen-girl crushes circa 2000,
got married over the weekend. However, Nick Carter says "I do" to Lauren Kitt with his Boys by his side, a source confirms to PEOPLE – and it's something the groom himself thought wouldn't happen.
The Backstreet Boy, 33, married fitness expert and actress Lauren Kitt, 29, in a breathtaking ceremony in Santa Barbara, Calif., on April 12
That sound you heard in April 2014? Time marched on as Nick Carter, the youngest, blondest, and most teen-idolized Backstreet Boy, 34, married his fitness expert/instructor and actress fiancée Lauren Kitt, 30, in a romantic ceremony, rep Jack Ketsoyan of EMC Bowery tells In Touch exclusively. As a result, he became to millions of now-grown female fans as a Back-In-The-Day Boy.
Carter and his new bride Kitt wanted it that way as they married said their "I dos" in a picturesque ceremony at sunset on a bluff overlooking the ocean at the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara on Saturday. Nick and Lauren shared handwritten vows in front of over 100. Much to our delight, the details of his romantic wedding are abundant - and yes, there were plenty of fellow Backstreet Boys in attendance.
Perhaps they, like Carter's fellow Backstreeters, had believed the singer when he told PEOPLE he'd never get married. And yet there he was a year later, standing before some 100 guests at the Bacara Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara, Calif., exchanging handwritten vows with fitness expert Kitt. (The pair, who dated for four years, chronicled their path to the alter in the VH1 reality series I Heart Nick Carter.)
Though marriage was not always a given for the groom. "I said I'd never get married," the 34-year-old told PEOPLE last year, but he made it official with a Southern California wedding to his fiancée, a fitness expert, and actress. "Go big or go home," he jokes.
While at one point it seemed the Backstreet Boys singer would never be ready to leap — having said that he would "never get married," but that certainly all changed when he met Lauren — it looked like Lauren was finally the girl to change his mind!
Only In Touch Weekly has the first official photos inside Nick Carter and fitness expert/actress Lauren Kitt's Santa Barbara Morroccon-inspired wedding!
"This is the best day of my life," Nick said to In Touch. "I'm so happy to marry my life's love."
And in the upcoming issue of In Touch, The kind-hearted, happily married couple ensured their fans could also enjoy an inside look at their emotional vows and all the celebration that followed by selling exclusive pictures of the event.
Meanwhile, the lovely bride had been gearing up for her big day. Last week, Kitt took to Instagram and shared a sweet, adorable throwback photo of her and her father from decades ago. "Next Saturday, the first man I ever loved will give me away to the love of my life @nickcarter. I love you, Dad. #nicknlowedding," she captioned the photo of her as a toddler feeding her father ice cream.
Lauren also shared another heart-warming snap of her and Nick cementing their love on a padlock bridge while in Germany. "Locked it up in Cologne #I❤NickCarter," she wrote.
If Kitt doesn't have a colorfully scrawled "Mrs. Carter" in a notebook, perhaps she doesn't deserve the honor...
OK, back to 2014.
The wedding took place as The pair walked down the aisle just over a year after Carter popped the big question to Kitt while on a small island in the Florida Keys. But Carter changed his mind after consulting fellow BSB member Dorough for input. "I asked Howie [for advice]. I was like, 'I love her, and I don't want to lose her.' And he was like, 'Just do it!'"
The pair got engaged last February 2013 when Carter, 34, proposed to his girlfriend of four years. The chart-topping singer picked out a — with a giant, seven-carat pear-shaped diamond ring! — and popped the question during a romantic boat ride getaway after sailing to a nearby secluded, remote island for a romantic moment in the Florida Keys after holding the ring in his pocket for two weeks. The boy-bander hinted at the proposal on his Instagram, posting a photo with his gal and the cryptic caption, "Big question...great answer."
Kitt herself also posted a photo at the time of the couple's serene location, where the engagement went down.
"A little island all to ourselves! #KeysLife," she captioned the pic two days before Carter asked her to marry him.
Nick admitted that the process was very stressful at the time, as he said, "I was like, 'I don't want [the ring] anymore!' It was driving me insane. I wanted to get it out of my hands and onto hers."
"She said, 'Yes,' and I'm, like, 'I don't know what to do," he continued. "She said, 'You're supposed to put it on my finger.' So I did. I was in shock."
The fitness expert also shared her feelings about Nick's proposal, admitting that one of her first thoughts was fitting the wedding date around the Backstreet Boys' schedule.
"I wasn't expecting it. It just felt very surreal. We both are just so happy in love right now and on cloud nine," she said. "Our first thought was, 'We need to contact the Backstreet Boys and find out when their schedule will permit."
Nick Carter, 34, and Lauren Kitt have revealed intimate pictures of the bash to InTouch magazine.
The publication reveals that the wedding - which took place in Santa Barbara - was 'Moroccan-inspired' and Lauren's stunning sexy strapless, mermaid-style white gown adorned with soft lace detailing cost $10,000.
The celebration started before Nick and Lauren's big day since Lauren gifted Nick with a white jeep as a wedding present last week.
Romantic setting: Nick happily turned the wedding planning over to Lauren, who envisioned a celebration she calls "organic elegance with a rustic twist." The couple selected a picturesque Santa Barbara resort with lush grounds and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean as the ceremony and reception venue. Guests, including fellow Backstreet Boys, took their seats on mismatched wooden chairs adorned with greenery arranged on a grassy lawn overlooking the ocean. The aisle featured clusters of candles housed in antique vintage wood lanterns alongside ivory flowers and succulents wrapped in burlap. A trellis fashioned out of birch branches and covered with white hydrangeas, roses, and violet orchids served as the altar in a lovely outdoor setting.
An eclectic soundtrack of familiar tunes – including the signature songs from Star Wars, Twilight, and The Legend of Zelda video game – accompanied the processional. One of the most adorable details? Preceding the resplendent bride were bridesmaids wearing mismatched dresses, Ava, the daughter of Backstreet Boys' A.J. McLean, who served as a pretty flower girl, and an eyewitness tells Us, "She was cute as a button." and the couple's two dogs. They carried the rings on bone-shaped pillows.
"Before I walked out, we played the Jaws title track to break the ice!" Lauren laughs. After this humorous prelude, she made her way down the aisle carrying a fragrant bouquet of anemones, all-white garden roses, peonies, herbs, hydrangeas, orchids, and moss, arranged by Petals LA. Lauren looked lovely and radiant in a fit-and-flare strapless white wedding gown featuring a lace sweetheart-neckline bodice, with a sweeping floor-length veil affixed to her dark hair pulled into an intricate braided chignon updo and diamond earrings and matching cuff bracelet. At the same time, the groom stood tall and looked classically dapper in a simple custom black tuxedo, white blouse, and black bow tie by Anthony Franco Designs which matched perfectly. "When I saw Lauren walking down the aisle, I thought, 'Wow, this is it, this is happening. I am so lucky,'" Nick reminisces.
"My wife, Lauren, surprised me with the band playing The Legend of Zelda theme [song] during our walk down the aisle," he tells The Knot. "That's how I knew she was the one for me. She geeks out over the same types of things I do. So, we are a perfect match."
Wiping away the tears: Just before sunset, on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Nick Carter got choked up as he and his girlfriend of nearly six years, Lauren Kitt, exchanged handwritten vows in front of more than 100 guests underneath a gorgeous arbor of purple-and-white flowers. In newly released pictures of the ceremony, Nick's bride Lauren can be seen wiping away the tears as they say their vows to each, People reported. Carter's vows were equally sweet, read from a note card. A second insider tells Us Weekly that Carter became emotional as the singer shared his heartfelt message with his new wife, "Lauren reached out and put her hand on his chest." Even more, moving was when it was time to exchange rings, "Lauren held Nick's hand and dried tears from her eyes," the source added their touching messages. "As we're crying at each other and reciting vows, I know in my mind that everyone will be able to realize, 'That's some real intense love right there!'" Nick told In Touch Afterwards about the magical moment and admitted that he and his wife Lauren were emotionally overcome as they said their vows to one another. "Standing up there with her was surreal - I lost it," the Backstreet Boy tells In Touch of the romantic April 12 ceremony at the Bacara Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara, Calif., filmed for the couple's upcoming VH1 reality series, I Heart Nick Carter. "I can't help but smile," adds fitness trainer Lauren, 30, stunned in a gorgeous strapless $10,000 gown made by Israeli designer Inbal Dror. "Everything was perfect." Nick looks overcome with emotion and smiles after saying his vows as he places the wedding band on Lauren's finger during the ceremony. The feelings didn't stop flowing there. Exchanging handwritten vows in front of over 100 guests, Carter and Kitt share a passionate kiss several times after finally being pronounced husband and wife.
PDA ALL-DAY
The newlyweds - whose 30-second the first kiss as a married couple "was so passionate, the peanut gallery yelled for them to get a room." says a guest - couldn't stop showing their love. Another eyewitness tells Us, "At the end of the ceremony, they shared the longest wedding kiss I've ever seen. A full minute later, they were still kissing. They seem crazy in love and thrilled to be married. You could feel the love bursting out of them."
Guests moved to an outdoor, Spanish-style courtyard illuminated with strings of old-fashioned light bulbs for a sit-down dinner. Long wooden tables boasted "runners" of floral arrangements, including Spanish moss, ivory garden roses, tulips, hyacinths, violet orchids, and succulents. "We also wanted the reception to smell as romantic as it looked," Lauren reveals, "so we had burlap napkins stuffed with lavender." Herbs, such as sage and rosemary, were also incorporated into the décor. The newlyweds sat in view of their guests beneath a floral arch at a table overflowing with blooms, succulents, and candles.
Cake Boss
Heartfelt toasts given by Lauren's father and sister and all four of Nick's fellow bandmates from the Backstreet Boys invoked moments of love and reflection. "I'm the youngest [band member] and last to get married," Nick explains, "and I could feel how proud they are of me and the love they have for Lauren and me." Then, after cutting their elegant five-tiered vanilla cake, covered in fresh Thai orchids that matched the centerpieces by florist Petals LA, Lauren "licked every last drop of icing off him!" says a guest after smushing Nick's face. Finally, the newlyweds and their guests moved the celebration and hit the dance floor late into the night, located inside an adjacent ballroom awash in lavender lighting.
Search Mission
Steady there, Nick! after abstaining from sex for a month before the wedding, at one point, Carter put his head under his bride's dress and got frisky, removing Lauren's garter with his mouth while Lauren pretended to act shocked.
Though the reception wrapped at 11 PM, the party was still ongoing. A Moroccan-themed after-party, bright red and orange lighting, and hookahs kept guests celebrating until 2 AM. Lauren even changed into a flowing white gown embellished with gold, silver, and orange embroidery to complement the style of the celebration, which was inspired by their upcoming honeymoon to Morocco.
After a whirlwind evening filled with love, laughter, and nonstop dancing, Lauren's only regret is that she didn't take more photos with her guests. Nick, too, shares his new wife's enthusiasm for their perfect wedding day. "I was surprised by how emotional and freeing it was to become a husband," Nick says. "I wouldn't change anything except to make it last longer!"
Like Brothers
From Backstreet Boy to Backstreet Man
Backstreet's back, alright!
When Nick Carter married Lauren Kitt on Saturday, over the weekend, his fellow Backstreet Boys band members were there to help celebrate his special day and support him.
Behind him, his band - AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, and Kevin Richardson - had his back.
"These guys are my family," Nick says of bandmates Howie Dorough, a latter member of the wedding party, Kevin Richardson, A.J. McLean, and Brian Littrell.
"It was bittersweet," A.J. McLean, 36, told PEOPLE. "We're so, so proud of him. He's been through hell and back as we all have, once in our life here or there."
The Backstreet Boys were a dynamic boy band until the early to mid-2000s, when they took a hiatus. In 2009, Carter admitted to past drug use and alcohol addiction.
McLean added that Saturday's Santa Barbara wedding was "beautiful, rustic," and "minimal."
"And you know, we're all family. We're all brothers," he adds. "To see our baby brother finally make that big final step. Then, of course, the next step has kids. They just got married, so obviously, take your time."
"Enjoy your time together first," Brian Littrell, 39, added.
Later they all took to Twitter. Dorough: "Had a wonderful time yesterday seeing my friend Nick get married. So proud and happy for him and Lauren. Now on my way to go snowboarding.:)." Richardson: "I love you both."
Cameras were rolling on the ceremony yesterday. Eager fans hoping to catch a glimpse of the gorgeous ceremony will have their chance. VH1 filmed Carter's entire wedding, including footage of the '90s boy band reunion, which will be made into a made-for-TV special later this year as part of an upcoming VH1 series called I 'Heart' Nick Carter. In addition, the couple has co-starred in a series of fitness webisodes called "Kitt Fitt.". We can't wait to watch it!
The guys from the Backstreet Boys had a big weekend. The night after the wedding, McLean joined bandmate Brian Littrell at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, where they accepted the golden popcorn on behalf of the boy band for Best Musical Moment, which took place during Seth Rogen and James Franco's summer hit, "This Is The End."
The Backstreet Boys crooner tweeted a simple message for the bride late Sunday, "Happiest day of my life 4-12-2014 I married my best friend and woman of my dreams. Lauren Kitt Carter, honeymoon time!" He followed up with a photo alongside his new bride, each flipping the bird, with the caption, "To all the haters that thought it wouldn't last...I LOVE Mrs. Carter! @laurenkitt #ilovemywife#ilovebeinghusband"
It was a very happy occasion for Nick, who lost his sister Leslie to an overdose in 2012.
Brother Misses Wedding
One significant person was missing from Nick Carter's wedding. Nick's parents, five siblings, and TV personalities, including Aaron and Angel Carter, were Noticeably absent among the 100 guests from the event.
"Aaron didn't blow anything off and would have been there –- it's a real bummer for him," Honig said. "He feels bad he missed the wedding."
Unfortunately, his younger brother and "House of Carters" costar Aaron Carter, 26, didn't make it to the gorgeous ceremony in Santa Barbara, Calif., over the weekend – but not for lack of trying. Still, because of a prior commitment and plane troubles, flight delays, his rep tells PEOPLE.
"Aaron had signed a contractual obligation to appear in the Cherry Blossom Parade in Washington, D.C., before Nick set his wedding date, and there was no sibling rivalry. However, even though he was obligated to fulfill his contract, Aaron still wanted to make the wedding," the celeb's rep Steve Honig tells E! News. "[We] realized there was a problem and figured out he could perform and get him to Santa Barbara so he would be there for the last two hours of the reception."
But unfortunately, the younger Carter's US Airways plane was ultimately grounded due to mechanical problems preventing him from making an appearance.
"There was a team of six people who worked to put together a plan to get him to Santa Barbara by the reception so he could at least participate in the celebration. Tickets were purchased, and the plan was in place. It was a major operation to get him there in time," adds Honig.
"Unfortunately, he was on his way when his US Airways plane experienced mechanical difficulties in Pittsburgh, and they became grounded there. So, he never made it. Aaron changed planes several times to get into Santa Barbara. He was legitimately busting his ass to make it to his brother's wedding. He felt awful and had every intention of being there. Aaron didn't blow anything off and would have been there – it's a real bummer for him. He feels bad he missed the wedding."
Aaron also posted a photo of himself stuck on the plane on Instagram with the caption, "Really pissed off that I missed my brother's wedding today. I hope he doesn't hate me... I tried to get there... I'm sorry, bro @nickcarter#technicalProblems."
But only some things went according to plan. "My family's always had a complicated dynamic," admits Nick, who shares that though he was supposed to have five groomsmen, his pop star brother Aaron texted him last minute that he couldn't make it. "At the end of the day, the people who love us wanted to be there, and that's what matters," Nick tells In Touch.
Although Aaron's rep insisted, he had a work engagement on the east coast. He had hoped to make the reception until a delayed flight made that impossible; Nick had skipped his sister Angel's wedding earlier this year.
Now he can't wait to start his own family with Lauren - after they get back from a mini honeymoon in the Florida Keys (with a more extended trip to Morocco planned for after BSB's U.S. tour ends this fall). "She's my lover and my best friend," Nick gushes. "She showed me that true love does exist."
Congrats to the happy couple!
It looks like Nick Carter's honeymoon is going swimmingly! Treating your new wife to a romantic boat trip seems like a perfect honeymoon activity.
The 34-year-old Backstreet Boys singer and his fitness expert wife, Lauren Kitt, have been enjoying newlywed life in the Florida Keys since jetted to the east coast after tying the knot in posh Santa Barbara, California, almost two weeks ago.
The couple also posed for a touching photograph and smiled, arriving in Florida in front of the private plane after flying via a private jet that flew them from California to Florida.
Before setting off, the happy couple posed happily together as they sat on board n the side of their appropriately decorated boat vessel, emblazoned with the words, 'Just Married, congratulations.'
In pics from their romantic getaway, the lovebirds, who bought a boat upon arrival, have been celebrating their marriage adventures on the high sea. Carter has been enjoying their vacation by fishing and even caught a large fish during one trip. Carter and Kitt were also spotted simply enjoying each other's company and cuddling while sitting on their boat and taking in the scenery.
But cheeky Backstreet Boy Nick Carter used it as an excuse to indulge in his other love of fishing - and ended up landing another catch of the day in the Florida Keys on Thursday.
His new wife, Lauren Kitt, was impressed when he showed her his whopper, which was several feet long and would have provided enough meat for at least a few meals.
Last week, Carter took a momentary break from enjoying his honeymoon to call out 'N Sync star Joey Fatone after Fatone dissed the Backstreet Boys. "Just disappointed. I liked joey..." Carter wrote last Friday.
He followed up with, "I'm proud of who we are and love what we stand for. Truthfully, it's about not letting our fans down. Sorry bro, but you have us all wrong," adding, "Now let me go back to enjoying my Honeymoon."

20th February, 2013 - Engagement
Lauren Kitt and Nick Carter - Engagement

The Proposal
Lucky Lauren! No wonder she said yes after looking at that sparkler's size. Remember when he told you he'd never break your heart? Sorry, ladies who were in middle school in the late '90s: but Instead, he announced Friday that Nick Carter, the youngest of the Backstreet Boys, has found his fire, his one desire, and is officially off the market. He has shown his girlfriend the shape of his heart by formally putting a ring on it. One less boy bander is available to date now that So the 1990s heartthrob planned the perfect proposal for his girlfriend of over four years Lauren Kitt, on Feb. 20.
The Backstreet Boy singer, 33, is engaged to his 29-year-old now-fiancée the fitness expert/actress, after traveling by boat to a small secluded island in the Florida Keys to pop the question on during a recent trip to the Florida Keys, People magazine reports.
While on tour in Australia, separated from his love for the longest time since they met, Nick realized he couldn't live without her. In fact, in an interview with PEOPLE last year, Carter said that it was Dorough who helped him get up the nerve to propose to Kitt. "I asked Howie [for advice]. I was like, 'I love her, and I don't want to lose her.' And he was like, 'Just do it!'" After obtaining permission to propose from Lauren's father, Nick set off on a mission to design the perfect engagement ring. He sent Lauren to look at jewelry for her birthday with his business manager at XIV KARATS. A diamond on one necklace captivated Lauren, so Nick had the stone removed and set into a ring. "I love it because it looks like a Star Wars battleship," he explains. Nick purchased the rather garish seven-carat diamond ring from XIV KARATS, which appears to be a pear-shaped stone set in platinum.
"I had the ring in my pocket for two weeks," the Backstreet Boy tells PEOPLE exclusively of his engagement to fitness expert/actress Lauren Kitt.
"I was like, 'I don't want it anymore!' It was driving me insane. I wanted to get it out of my hands and onto hers."
For the momentous occasion, With the ring in his pocket, Nick, 33, took his fiancée Lauren, 29 – along with a few friends and Lauren's father – on a trip to the Florida Keys. He planned a romantic boat ride to a private secluded island in Key West Carter had spent time on as a child and chose to steer the boat himself – but things did not go as smoothly as expected. It wasn't all smooth sailing, though – the boat broke down several times, forcing the two (Nick and Lauren's dad) to stop to exert some elbow grease and tinker with the engine.
"My boat was in such bad condition because I hadn't used it for six years. The boat was barely running. It died, like, four times. It took me five days on my hands and knees, scraping up my body [to fix it,]" Carter says. "The engine wasn't complete yet, but we decided to go out."
But Despite the engine stalling a few times as they eventually set out to sea Wednesday, all was forgotten after They finally made it to the small island in the Florida Keys - which the couple now lovingly refers to as "Engagement Island" - and climbed a hill, where Carter surprised Kitt. In newly released photos, It was there that Lauren's father and Nick's best friend were on hand to witness the shirtless Nick smiling in the romantic pose, dropping to one knee, pulling out the seven-carat gigantic pear-shape center stone and baguette side stones diamond engagement ring, set on a thick band from XIV KARATS from his swim trunks and ask Lauren, whose brown hair is up in a bun and wearing a red bikini, to be his wife. "I got down on my knees and did that whole hoopla," he said. "She was like, 'Are you serious?' And started crying. Now we call it Engagement Island." Nick is reaching both hands upwards to clasp Lauren while she stands barefoot with her back to the camera. Not that Lauren has anything to worry about - she's a fitness expert with a body built like a female wrestler's shows off her perfectly toned arms, legs, and backside without embarrassment. Yet, Nick needed to figure out what to do after the proposal. "She said, 'Yes,' and I'm, like, 'I don't know what to do," Carter tells PEOPLE of the proposal. "She said, 'You're supposed to put it on my finger.' So, I did. I was in shock." The proposal came as a surprise to the bride-to-be as well. Kitt was equally as surprised and thrilled by the proposal and gave her future husband a big hug after accepting his proposal With the ocean in the background and their dog at their feet. "I wasn't expecting it. It just felt very surreal," explains a thrilled Kitt. "We are both so happy in love right now and on cloud nine." Good thing that Kitt is a fitness specialist and an actress who was maybe in talks to become a WWE Diva late last year. She tweets things like, "Working on building my abs and lower body. Later Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training...long day!" That's some heavy lifting.
The bride-to-be also showed off her seven-carat gigantic pear-shaped diamond engagement ring set on a thick band, and the XIV Karats ring sparkled in the sunlight.
Before the news was even released in the entertainment magazine, he hinted at the proposal on his Instagram account and Twitter page today. Carter's romantic plan worked, posting a photo showing himself with his fiancée Lauren Kitt, 29, and the cryptic caption, "Big question...great answer."
The 33-year-old boy-bander and his fiancée have been dating for four years, and he reportedly proposed with a 7-carat diamond ring (excellent work, Nick!).
Carter's wife-to-be also posted a photo of the couple's serene location, snapping a shot of the small island where the engagement seemingly went down.
"A little island all to ourselves! #KeysLife," she captioned the pic two days before Nick asked her to marry him.
Based on their smiling faces, the couple is overjoyed to be taking the next step in their relationship.
This will be Carter's first wedding. After the proposal, the "I'll Never Break Your Heart" singer tweeted, "So happy and excited for our future."
Now for the next big question: When is the wedding?
"It's not up to us. It's up to the schedule. We're excited and looking forward to the next chapter of our lives."
And while the couple is excited about their wedding, there are a few other people they must consult before planning their impending nuptials – the band.
"Our first thought was, 'We need to contact the Backstreet Boys and find out when their schedule will permit,'" Kitt says of wedding planning while the band works on a new album and prepares for their sold-out fan cruise scheduled in October to celebrate their 20th anniversary.
It'll be trickier than it sounds: Carter is set to reunite with his fellow Backstreet Boys to work on a new album this year.
Congratulations to the happy couple, Nick and Lauren, you two! We are glad you found "The One." We wish you many more years of happiness.

20th October, 2008 - Hookup
Lauren Kitt and Nick Carter - Hookup

Unlike her famous husband, 31-year-old Lauren isn't involved in the entertainment industry — aside from the new reality show. A veterinary technician specialist, Lauren moved to Japan and later Paris in her early 20s to help train others. Upon landing in the States in her mid-20s, she experienced a quarter-life crisis.
Before I knew him, I was friends with his (Nick's) sister. She and another friend of ours had been trying to get us together for a long time, and one day, they set us up on a blind date. Nick and I met and talked for hours and hours and eventually fell in love.
Nick Carter never had to wonder what his family would think of his girlfriend, fitness expert, and actress Lauren Kitt after they began dating in 2009. That's because it was Nick's sister, Angel, and brother, Aaron, who intuitively knew the couple would enjoy each other's company and persuaded them to meet. Nick: My sister and family had been trying to introduce me to her. They knew Lauren before I did, and they all hung out. Lauren would always say, "No, I don't like the Backstreet Boys and pop stars and all that."
One time it came to fruition because she was like, "Fine, I'll meet him. Now leave me alone!" When Nick "grew up, " he met Lauren Kitt on a blind date in 2008, and everything turned around for him. "So I invited Lauren over, and we all hung out." Angel introduced the two at a movie night at Nick's house, where a sign from the heavens seemed to approve of the match. "We went out on the balcony, and all of a sudden, Three hours into conversing on my balcony overlooking the beach, these shooting stars came across the sky, and we saw shooting star after star," Nick remembers. "We were both looking at them simultaneously like, "That's trippy!" We both looked at each other, and it got quiet. I had to sing the national anthem for the baseball world series with the Backstreet Boys the next day, and I didn't want to leave her."
"When I first met Lauren, I was in a place where I wanted to stop any drinking and drugs," said Nick. (Nick realized he needed to change his life after being diagnosed with a potentially fatal heart condition called cardiomyopathy, which caused the early deaths of Andy Gibb and Chris Penn.) "I wanted to adopt a whole new lifestyle of fitness and health. And at the time — and they say this happens all the time — I didn't want a relationship. I didn't want to be in a relationship, and then suddenly... smacked right in my face."
Lauren: When I met Nick, I had a tough shell. I'm not open with strangers, I don't lay it all out there, and I have a small group of people I allow into my life, so I was shocked at how open and vulnerable he was. He had a power of vulnerability that was astonishing and admirable.
Nick: She was different, but you could tell she had gone through a lot in life, and that's what I shared with her. I've experienced so many other things, and she has had a tough life, too, with her family and upbringing. So it was like we spoke the same language.
It was always difficult for people to relate to me because I had been through so much, and whenever I met a girl before, I didn't have things to talk about because my life had been pretty extreme. But we shared a lot of similarities.
Kitt sometimes had it challenging. Like Carter, she had a rough past with her family, as her mother was in and out of jail. She was also overweight when she met Carter but figured out a great fitness routine that works for her, and she maintains a fantastic figure.
"And six years later, now I have someone I truly love and care about, want to be the best for, that I want to be alive for. I want to be healthy. I want to be there for (Lauren) and be accountable to her, so she has been my rock. We do fitness together, eat healthily, and play video games together. She's my best friend, so it's nice to have a best friend that is positive and a great influence."
What were your first impressions of each other?
Lauren: Initially, not knowing him, I thought he was arrogant. Come to find out; he was just shy. Because he didn't stand up to greet me, he was like, "Hey, what's up?" I needed to get to know him better. Once that happened, he was very loving, warm, vulnerable, and sweet.
Nick: I thought she was...
Lauren: Tall. [Laughs]
Nick: I thought she was tall and stunning, but I could tell she needed someone like me to come in, love, protect, and hold her. I just felt like she needed me.
What was your first date?
Nick: That was the first date - it was a cute little date night with my whole family. We watched the movie Big with Tom Hanks.
Nick was in the early stages of sobriety when you started dating. Did you see his struggle?
Lauren: Definitely. He was very steadfast in wanting to be sober. But, the people he'd surrounded himself with were hard for him to deal with because they were freeloaders and enablers. They were there to use and feed off him, so that was the biggest struggle I saw.
Nick, since you were still battling addiction when you started dating, how much did Lauren help you?
Nick: She helped support my sobriety and my well-being from that point. I had been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, so I was trying to change my life. I had been sober for six months and told my brother and my sister, "I don't want to meet anyone because I'm trying to focus on changing my life right now, working out, and eating better." So that's why I didn't want to meet her.
Did you have a moment where you were like, 'She's the one'?
Nick: I loved being around her, didn't want to be away from her, and enjoyed our fun and bad times. When you want to spend every waking minute with them, they're the right one.
When did you know the other person was the one?
Nick: For me, I thought she was the one the minute that I met her. It was bizarre because ...
Lauren: Really? I never knew that.
Nick: Yeah, you were different. I don't know; I just felt an instant connection. I can't... It's like I just wanted to be around her. I liked her energy. I felt like she was powerful the minute I met her.
Lauren: It took me about three months to know that he was the one, and once I had that epiphany... He was out on tour. So I took my best friend to a tattoo shop and got his initials on my neck. And it was a surprise. Do you remember that? And you were freaking out ... because you couldn't find me, and I was getting a tattoo. It says NGC on the back of my neck.
What's the biggest thing you've learned from Lauren about love?
Nick: That true, real love is unconditional. I had always been searching for that real love, and it's hard to find in this business because many people will put on a face and tell you what you want to hear.
What are your favorite qualities about Lauren?
Nick: She's stubborn but very protective and has the biggest heart. She's a softie on the inside, and she loves immensely. But she's an extremist – when she loves something, she LOVES it to the point she's hard to be around! And I'm an attention seeker, so she gives me all the attention I need!
What I liked about her was that she had a powerful personality. I could be accountable to her and hide within one another. I felt protected, which was important because I was out there on my own and had run with so many bad people ... it had been challenging for me. I had to make a choice the minute I met her and say, "This is the person that I want to spend my life with, and I feel safe with her."
Lauren, what's the most significant thing Nick has instilled in you?
Lauren: That's easy – he has taught me how to be vulnerable. Funnily enough, he has gotten me in touch with my feminine side!
How?
Lauren: Our relationship dynamic is funny. In many ways, he's the female, and I'm the male – he's very emotional and wants to talk about his feelings. He can't move on from certain things until his feelings have been addressed. I'm more of a male counterpart – I'm black-and-white; if the problem's over, let's move on. Nick's taught me to open up, be vulnerable, take chances, and be emotional.
What's the most surprising thing about Nick?
Lauren: Going back to him being vulnerable and emotional ... he's the most loving person I've met, and to me, that was odd because he didn't come from a background of lots of love, attention, support, and protection. So what he gives me sometimes surprises me and makes me think, "Wow, I'm the luckiest girl in the world."

Nick ,please say NO this woman:*

amandaFeb 26, 2013

Look at Nick's eyes and facial. He's not the same Nick we used to know. His eyes don't lie. He's under a black spell. This is sad that Lauren did this to get what she wants. Karma should get her back! Help Nick please!

amandaFeb 26, 2013

His family should know about this dirty witchcraft and get him out of it. One by one, everyone that cares about Nick either leaves him or die like his sister, Leslie Carter. SHe did not die of depression but a black spell that Lauren curse on her. Leslie know too much about Lauren's dirty trick.

amandaFeb 26, 2013

Nick is not in love but Lauren has done witchcraft on him. A black spell that is a command. Nick will do what she says always. Too bad for Nick. He is used forever.

sweetreesweetreeFeb 24, 2013
