I’m very sensitive and protective over them and so my worst fear was becoming vulnerable and exposing any of my family and friends to what I’ve experienced.
I can take it and I chose to be with Nick and I chose this life and I can handle what is said about me and the attacks and threats.
But when it comes to my family and friends, that’s what I was more fearful of because I didn’t want to expose them to that hatred because that’s what I’m getting.
Picture this: You’re all grown up, you come home from work, and lo and behold there’s your new hubby, Nick Carter, waiting for you! If that sounds like you, then you’re not much different than us — but that’s not exactly the case for the Backstreet Boy’s new wife and Lauren, a fitness expert and no-nonsense gal, gamely answered our fangirl inquiries, while also shedding light on the newlyweds’ lives post-wedding, the Backstreet wife she’s closest with, and what surprised her most about the world of pop stars. Then we went off on our honeymoon and, when you get married, I feel like people treat you with more respect. With us, it really brought us closer than we already were and I think everyday we’re experiencing more and more wedded bliss.
“I kept him in the dark so that he could enjoy it and just relax,” says Kitt Carter, who’s due April 12 and planning a home birth.
I just wanted to get it out of my hands and on to hers.” Nick took Lauren to the Florida Keys and proposed to her on a secluded island.
“We both are just so happy in love right now and on cloud nine.” Congrats to the happy couple!
“He just got off a tour, so I really wanted him to enjoy this next thing, which is to become a dad, and make it about him too and shower him with love and surprises.” The shower — planned with the help of Stacey Ruiz Events — featured white and green lush florals, a Renessaince-era food setup complete with turkey drumsticks, grand indoor-outdoor seating areas with lots of white, wood and furs, a photo booth and a dessert bar that centered around a gold-frosted vanilla confetti “Winter Is Coming” cake.
Fifty friends and family members attended the shower — including fellow Backstreet Boys Kevin Richardson and A. Mc Lean — and guests were provided with a pack of bloom KIND baby wipes to take home with them. @nickcarter and @laurenkittcarter were tickled over our gluten free Red Wedding Red Velvet Cupcakes. ❤️ #nickandloshower #showerofthrones #babyiscoming #gameofthrones | Incredible event design and coordination by @staceyruizevents!

Seeing all the smoke and mirrors and the backstage stuff, I was so naive.
