Dear Nick, Lauren, and Baby Boy Carter…. – Love, The Fans

BabyBaby

From a low-key romance to a fairytale wedding to a family of three, Nick Carter and Lauren Kitt-Carter are living the dream in a larger than life way. We’ve watched them become husband and wife, now we will watch them become mom and dad and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house (or in any of the homes of viewers) last night on Dancing With The Stars when the couple revealed they’d be having a sweet baby boy. Social media is lit up with congrats and sweet words for the couples and of course, we wanted to try and gather all of those feelings into one post.

Dear Nick,

For nearly 23 years, we’ve seen you as the baby of the Backstreet Boys, but last night, everything changed. We saw you, perhaps for the first time, as a 35 year old man who is deeply in love, incredibly happy about his accomplishments, over the moon excited that he’s having a son, and finally fulfilled. We’ve watched you succeed and we’ve watched you struggle and nothing makes us happier than seeing you on the upswing. You’ve always had so much love to give and we are thrilled that you’ve finally found someone worthy of receiving that love in Lauren. We know that you’ll be an incredible dad. You have so many gifts to pass along, so many talents to share with your boy, and for the next 18+ years, you’ll have someone to instill your wisdom inside. Just think – you’re going to have a little buddy to cheer with you at football games, celebrate Halloween, and to a mini-Alien seeker! We hope that he gains from you the same zest for life that you possess and the go-getting attitude. We also know that when he looks back on his Dad’s life, he will be as proud of you as we have always been. You have turned your life around and you are finally getting the happiness you deserve. In the time you’re celebrating your 23rd year of your being a Backstreet Boy and your 2nd year as a husband, you’ll also become a Dad – wow. Live in the moment. Relish every moment. Be in love with the life you’re living because it’s a good one and we’re all so happy for you. ❤

Dear Lauren,

Thank you. Thank you for being the woman that you are. Thank you for being the woman that grounds Nick and loves him unconditionally. It’s unbelievably clear how happy and in love you both are and nothing is better than a baby born out of a love like that. While being married to a celebrity hasn’t always been the easiest, please know that the majority of us are rooting for you (even though we might hate you a little when your body bounces right back after pregnancy 😉 ). You’re going to be an awesome mom! We can’t wait to see you take care of a child the same way that you love and care for Nick, your family, and your pets. You have a good heart, Lauren, and it shows. We also know that you must have an insane amount of patience to be married to Nick and it’s all going to play a part in the great mommy you will be. You deserve all the happiness and joys that motherhood brings and to say that we’re happy for you is an understatement. Oh, and we hope that your son inherits your insanely amazing eyebrows! The dedication you show to living a green life and protecting the earth so that the world is a better place for your son is something we should all strive to do. You’re basically superwoman and your baby boy is lucky to call you his mom. ❤

Dear Baby Boy Carter,

We don’t know your name yet but you are already loved by millions of people all over the world. From Israel to Brazil to Italy to Indonesia to home in the United States, you’re the biggest news in entertainment since your mom and dad found out you’re a boy last night. It’s been a year since we watched your parents marry each other on TV and longer than that that we’ve watched them fall in love and we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you’re going to be born into such a beautiful kind of love. Your dad is an international celebrity with multi platinum records, but his greatest accomplishment will always be creating and raising you, we’re sure. Your mom is an incredibly smart, beautiful, and strong woman who will work hard to keep your life as normal as possible (but they both love aliens and ghosts, so you might have a slightly different version of normal). From your mom and dad, to family, to Backstreet Boys, to fans, you’ll never be short on love. Your parents feel lucky to have you, but you should know how lucky you are that they have been chosen to be your parents. The world will be waiting for you. ❤

6 Reasons We Should Be Thankful For The Backstreet Wives

Wives

Many of us have grown up with the Backstreet Boys and we mean that quite literally. We have grown up, some of us have gotten married, some of us have had babies and we have watched the Boys do the same. Some of us seem to forget, however, that these five women fell in love with five men just as we fell in love with our significant others. While their husbands are (obviously) larger than life (no pun intended….ok, kinda), at the end of the day, we should be grateful for them! If nothing else, because females should band together… you know, GIRL POWER (Did you learn nothing from the Spice Girls??), but if you need more reasons, continue reading.

1. They Make Endless Sacrifices For US To Enjoy Their Husbands’ Talents.

Sure, these women knew who they were marrying. They were aware of the tour life, the cruises, the being gone for half of the year, but knowing it and living it are two different things. While living on a tour bus with a Backstreet Boy sounds like a fan’s dream come true, it’s not exactly the dream home situation and definitely not for a growing family. So stay home, some say. Skype, some say… but that’s not really fair, is it? No amount of new invention can replace actually having your husband at home and these five women, while mentioning that they miss their man, never complain about it.

2. They Sometimes Have To Play Two Parents At Once.

Speaking of sacrifices, Leighanne, Rochelle, Leigh, and Kristin all have children who they have to raise essentially on their own during touring years. Sure, they all join up on tour sometimes and Dad is available for chatting, but parenting is a hard job and these moms are superheroes! Not only having to make major decisions alone sometimes, making sure school work is done, keeping up with a schedule and such, but consider trying to make all of that fit for your child to have a normal life PLUS joining Dad on tour! Not to mention traveling alone sometimes with small children, dealing with fans in an airport, and not wanting to throw your luggage into people. Supermoms.

3. They Have The Job Of Telling A Backstreet Boy When He Stinks…Literally.

I mean, none of US want that job. What if Nick, Howie, AJ, Kevin, or Brian showed up to a VIP smelling like garlic from the lunch they ate beforehand?! These ladies tell their men like it is, much like we would tell our own significant others. They tell them about that haircut that was NOT cute and those shorts that NEED to go. Can you imagine the laundry they have to do after hardcore rehearsals?! No thank you.

4. They Believe That Sharing Is Caring.

Let’s be real, from the get go, these 5 women have shared their husbands and their lives with us. Accusations of “selfishness” is laughable because it takes a special kind of girl to share the man they love, the children they created, and the lives they live with millions of people. They are subjected, beyond their control, to unfair judgement, opinions, and sometimes uncalled for hate. None of this has changed that they continue to share with us and we should be appreciative of that fact.

5. They’ve Been So Nice To Us.

Could they hide from fans? ABSOLUTELY. Do they? Not usually. Most every modern Backstreet fan has a pleasant story about one of the wives and that says something. They aren’t celebrities, they didn’t sign up to have “fans”, but they accept it and they stop for photos and talk to us like we aren’t crazy. It needs to be appreciated a little more often.

6. Sometimes They Give Us More Info Than The Boys Themselves.

Rochelle, Leighanne, Kristin, Lauren, and Leigh are ON. OUR. SIDE. They want their husbands to be successful and happy, we want them to be successful and happy. They want us to be excited about what’s coming next just as much as we want to know what’s going on. How many times has it been one of them who has given us info about recording? About cruise events? About film projects? A lot. How many times have they passed something along for us? A lot. We NEED them. They’re our insiders!

—-

Dear Lauren, Rochelle, Leighanne, Kristin and Leigh,

We are thankful for all of you and thankful that you have made what was “our” boys, your boys. Thank you for putting up with so incredibly much – we know it isn’t easy. Please know that you ARE appreciated and that for every one nasty person saying nasty things, there are 100 more that support you 100%. Thank you for being strong women who handle everything with such class. You’re all fantastic. 

Dead 7 (A Zombie Western By Nick Carter) : By The Numbers

dead7big

The media is buzzing with news of Nick Carter, the youngest member of the Backstreet Boys, coming into his own with another “solo” project and this time, it’s completely different. While Dead 7 is new to the film world, fans have been following the progression for the past two years. Here is a “by the numbers” look at how far Nick has come to put this film into motion.

2013: The year Nick Carter started an IndieGoGo Campaign to crowdfund a horror film that he co-wrote and would ultimately star in himself.

$85,000: The IndieGoGo campaign goal to make the film come to life (or dead?)

$156,214: How much money the campaign actually raised by Nick Carter / Backstreet Boys / Horror fans all over the world.

1,349: How many individuals contributed to the campaign.

3: How many name changes the film gone through. From Evil Blessings to Dead West to Dead 7.

2014: The year Nick announced the changes to the name and the movie plot. Evil Blessings would turn into Dead West and would now be a zombie western – “the story of a ragtag band of gunslingers who must rid a small town of a zombie plague in a post-apocalyptic West”, according to a press release regarding the movie.

118: The number of films The Asylum has produced, including the cult classic Sharknado trilogy. Nick signed on with the production company in January to produce his own film.

167: The number of shows Nick performed on tour with the Backstreet Boys in the midst of planning Dead West / Dead 7 and fulfilling the “perks” purchased from the IndieGoGo campaign. (Not including the Nick and Knight tour)

130,000: The number of people in attendance to the 2015 San Diego Comic where Nick (along with The Asylum, Lauren Kitt-Carter, Joey Fatone, and AJ McLean) released more details regarding Dead 7 (along with the title change) in a panel.

7: The number of “bandits” who must save the small town, including Lauren, Nick’s wife.

1: The number of NSync members in Dead 7 …so far. During the Comic Con panel, Joey Fatone, who will be in the movie, joked that they could probably also ask Lance Bass to be in the film too…as a can-can girl.

2 (?): The number of Backstreet Boys confirmed to be in Dead 7. While AJ McLean and Howie Dorough are all in, the jury is still out on Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson. When asked by a fan, Nick tweeted that the cousins were “very interested”.

4: Number of other superstars Nick has tweeted to ask if they’re interested in cameos. These stars include: Paul McCartney, Sisqo, Niall Horan, and Mel B. A boyband and 90s icons palooza, for sure!

2016: Year that Dead 7 is slated to be finished and aired on the Syfy network.

Millions: Number of supporters Nick has had for this film since the beginning. We can’t wait!

5 Things You Need To Know About Nick Carter and #DeadWest

Backstreet-Boys-Nick-Carter-Movie-665x385

For the past month, I have been updating nickcarter.net with all the latest developments on Nick Carter’s movie project, Dead West. Keep an eye out on his official site for all of the exclusives and newest of news as I will be posting it there first, but I’m all about promoting the Boys’ projects wherever I can! If you haven’t been keeping up with all of the updates on Nick and his film progressions, here it goes…

1. Dead West Was Born From Evil Blessings.

In 2013, Nick launched an Indiegogo  crowdfunding campaign to create a new film entitled Evil Blessings. The campaign allowed fans to have a hand in the movie coming into fruition as well as receiving perks for their donation. Since then, Nick has worked like crazy to fulfill all of the promised perks which we admire him for!

In mid 2014, tragedy struck when Evil Blessings’ director passed away unexpectedly, bringing production to a halt. Last year was also a busy one for Nick with a wedding, the Nick & Knight tour, I Heart Nick Carter, and the second leg of the In A World Like This tour with the Backstreet Boys.

When fans became unsure of the movie’s fate, Nick took to the web in October to post an update and revealed that the Evil Blessingsproject would now be going forward as a film entitled Dead West. The movie is described in subsequent interviews as, “a gang of bandits from the wild west, who try to rob a bank and soon find themselves in the fight of their lives against a town full of zombies.”

2. The Asylum Has Signed On To Produce The Movie.

Nick has revealed that he will be teaming up with the mockbuster movie company, The Asylum. If you aren’t familiar with the name, you most certainly have heard of their latest hit cult classic, Sharknado.
In an interview in January, Nick had this to say about the pairing:
“Actor, director, writer. I’m getting ready to do a deal with a movie company called Asylum, so I’m getting ready to do cool stuff on my own. It’s called Dead West.  It’s a zombie horror western movie. It’s a hybrid movie. I created the story, co-wrote the story with a writer, and just did our meeting last week with Asylum. They’re the same people that did Sharknado, so it’s definitely a B-movie, but with this movie it’s something I wrote from my creative brain. Now they’re coming in, and we’re going to partner together, and we’re going to shoot the movie in March. I’m acting in it and possibly bringing in some friends of mine. It’s pretty insane, I’ll tell you, and we’re really, really excited. I’m passionate about this, and I enjoy being artistic in a sort of quirky way that’s unusual. That’s why I’m putting together the cast; there’s some names floating around like Joey Fatone from N*SYNC or an old buddy of mine Shaquille O’Neal. Just an out of the box thing.”

3. Filming Will Begin In August.

Dead West, the much anticipated horror flick that Nick Carter has co-written and will appear in, is set to start filming in August as confirmed by Nick himself via Instagram. (He also confirmed that Lauren is going to be looking HOT!)

4. Lauren, AJ, and Howie Are All Confirmed To Be In Dead West.

Nick mentioned months ago that Lauren would be a leading female in the zombie western but he also recently confirmed that Howie and AJ would be acting it in alongside him! This just keeps getting better and better. Now if we can get zombie-shooting cowboy Kevin….

5. The First Promotion For The Film Will Be At San Diego Comic Con on July 9th!

The above Instagram post was also a confirmation that Nick would be attending a panel regarding Dead West with Asylum, Howie, and AJ which is a HUGE promotional opportunity. After a week of cancelling the appearance and then reconfirming and losing Howie, Nick WILL be there! The event is the mecca for all things new in the horror, sci fi, and comic industry. With more than 130,000 people in attendance last year and being the hottest ticket in town (it’s been sold out since forever!), this is going to be a big deal for Nick’s film and we can’t wait to hear about it.

10 Reasons Why We Love Lauren Kitt-Carter and Nick Carter

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, we made it it’s been a whole year since Nick Carter was officially taken off the market by marrying the beautiful Lauren Kitt.

We’re tired just thinking about it, but these two are a power couple and that’s just one of the reasons we love them!
