Nick Carter and his wife Lauren Kitt are sharing the news of their newest addition.

On Thursday morning, the 41-year-old singer took to Twitter to share that his wife had given birth.

“We are proud to announce that our baby has officially arrived,” Carter wrote with a prayer hands emoji.

The Backstreet Boys singer went on to share that the baby’s birth didn’t exactly go to plan.

“But as a parent knows all to very well, sometimes things don’t turn out the way you plan it. We have been experiencing some minor complications but things are looking a little better after the first night,” he shared.

The pop star went on to thank his fans for their support, writing, “I wanted to thank everyone for all the prayers and good thoughts during this time. We will keep you updated.”

On Wednesday, Carter shared a photo of himself in hospital scrubs and a mask, looking upset, writing, “Yes I’m a believer. I ask god to give us strength to protect mommy and baby. 🙏🏻 #fatherhood #prayers.”

Carter and Kitt are already parents to five-year-old son Odin and one-year-old daughter Saoirse. Carter recently shared an adorable video of their youngest child before heading to the hospital.

Carter also shared an update on Twitter Friday:

The couple announced the news that they were expecting back in January by posting a video of the sonogram.

“Sometimes life blesses you with little surprises,” Carter wrote at the time, adding, “#2021 #babynumber3 #fatherhood #happyhome.”
