Musician Aaron Carter has confirmed that he is expecting his first child with girlfriend Melanie Martin.

Carte, 32, made the happy announcement on Instagram Live this Tuesday. After showing his fans the positive pregnancy test, Carter said, "Obviously I have a baby on the way, I’m going to be a busy father for sure. This is the official announcement, we’re pregnant."

Carter spoke to People about his upcoming journey of being a father and what he and Martin are putting their time and energy into. “This is what we both want. We both were trying for it. I’m just focused on the future and being a dad. I want to be a good dad. I’m focused, my music career has been doing really well and touring, having my clothing line out, all that stuff I have going for me that isn’t necessarily just music. Family is most important to me,” he said.

The duo had made the relationship public when Carter had posted a picture of the couple together with the caption, "She loves me she loves me not, she woke me up from napping but I’m not complaining." The couple has not shied away from speaking about their relationship. In February, Carter once again took to Instagram talking about the progress of his relationship with Martin. The picture that showed the duo kissing had a long caption.

"Were still learning so much about each other, what our boundaries are, hers and mine. Notice HER comes first always put your woman first before your own selfish needs. That's what my daddy always taught me. Do right by your woman happy wife happy life," started the caption. Showering compliments on Martin, Carter continued, “I’ve never met a woman more invested into me than you my darling @missmelaniemartin you’ve shown me a love that I never thought existed. From my boundaries, I have for myself that our met and knowing she actually DOES something about it. You all can talk all the s**t you want and call me names and slander me. But we all know what it is. I just want to move forward in the best way possible."

He further revealed that Martin was now living with him. "Melanie and I have the same goals in life. I’m just showing her a different side of love that I myself am not accustomed too. So that’s why I made it a point to do things differently. Obviously my sweetheart and I have different lifestyles. She moved in with me and has been communicating at least 12 hours a week to be home. She’s a blessing her love is worth it. And that’s what means the most to me." After the duo had been official for two months, Carter proved his intense loyalty by boasting a tattoo over his eye — 'Melanie' it said. 

TMZ had reported that Martin was arrested this past March due to a dispute with Carter. The outlet reported that LA County Sheriff’s Department was called to the musician's home on March 29, 2020, at 11 pm on a "domestic violence" complaint. Martin was later taken into custody and was held on $50,000 bail. Carter took to Twitter saying, "You don’t have to wait for someone to treat you bad repeatedly. All it takes is once, and if they get away with it that once, if they know they can treat you like that, then it sets the pattern for the future." He later told People that the charges against Martin were dropped and the duo are a couple again. "We just realized that we love each other,” he said.

Carter had earlier told People that "lots of kids" were definitely in his plan. "I’m going to be a good father. I know it. I want lots of kids, lots of stability, lots of happiness and laughter and learning and having fun. It’s going to be good. I want to have girls. Maybe it’s because of all my sisters and being a mama’s boy."
