Nick Carter announced in an emotional tweet on Sept. 10 that his wife, Lauren Kitt, recently suffered a miscarriage. The 38-year-old member of The Backstreet Boys and father to a 2-year-old son, Odin Reign, is in the middle of a South American tour, and understandably devastated.
"God give us peace during this time," he wrote. "I really was looking forward to meeting her after 3 months. I'm heartbroken."
Unfortunately for Nick and Lauren, this isn't the first time they've had a miscarriage. In a 2015 video for Dancing With the Stars, Nick explained that they had lost a child before Lauren got pregnant with Odin. "It's been rocky, to be quite honest with you," he said in the video. "There have been times when we thought it wouldn't happen."
Nick was so devastated by the news, he nearly canceled his show at the Barranco Arena in Lima that was scheduled for the later that evening.
