"I'm heartbroken": Backstreet Boy Nick Carter almost cancels tour as wife Lauren suffers miscarriage
As it turns out, the singer has suffered the loss of a child after his wife Lauren Kitt, who was pregnant with the couple's second child, had a miscarriage.
Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter is currently in the middle of a solo tour of South America and Mexico and his latest concert was supposed to kick off at the Barranco Arena in Lima, Peru. However, on Monday, the 38-year-old pop star came close to suddenly canceling his performance on account of a personal loss.
As it turns out, the singer has suffered the loss of a child after his wife Lauren Kitt, who was pregnant with the couple's second child, had a miscarriage. Carter broke the news on social media late at night, first expressing his heartbreak and then soon sharing with his thousands of fans that he won't be able to make it to the stage.
"God give us peace during this time," the 'Everybody' hitmaker tweeted adding, "I really was looking forward to meeting her after 3 months. I’m heartbroken."

In a separate post, though, Carter revealed that he might not be able to perform for the crowd gathered in Lima, before quickly changing his mind and adding in a follow-up post: "This will be hard, but for the love of my fans here in Lima I’ll be on the stage tonight."
Carter and Kitt exchanged vows back in 2014. Following which, the couple welcomed their first child, son Odin Reign Carter in 2016. It wasn't an easy journey for the then-expecting couple, as the Backstreet Boy star had revealed in a pre-taped recording during his appearance on 'Dancing With The Stars'.
“It’s been rocky, to be quite honest with you. There have been times when we thought it wouldn’t happen,” Carter had said. As his wife went on to add: “It was really hard on Nick.”
Fighting back tears, Kitt further talked about losing the baby earlier, saying, "Just watching him get so excited about something, and then see him so hurt. That was hard.”
Indeed things have been rough for the American singer, who was most recently accused of sexual assault by Melissa Schuman, a former member of the pop group Dream.
“The one thing that I have, is I have my voice back,” Schuman recently told The Daily Beast, opening up about the aftermath of her accusing Carter. “And that means more to me than anything else, is that I am empowered, and I’m not shutting up, and I’m not going away. I’m not scared anymore.”
Carter has denied the allegations.
