It’s a Backstreet Boy! Nick Carter’s wife, Lauren Kitt, is pregnant with a baby boy. The couple revealed the gender of their baby-to-be during Monday night’s episode of Dancing With the Stars, which Carter is currently competing on with pro partner Sharna Burgess.

With the help of co-host Erin Andrews, Carter, 35, and Kitt, 32, opened a giant box that released dozens of blue balloons. As they learned the happy news, the expectant parents shared a sweet smooch on live TV.

Us Weekly exclusively revealed last month that the couple are expecting their first child. "They are so happy and overjoyed," an insider told Us. "They've been trying and waiting for such a long time."

Carter proposed to Kitt with a 7-carat ring back in February 2013. In April 2014, the couple tied the knot in Santa Barbara, Calif., with his bandmates AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, and Brian Littrell in attendance.
