At long last, Nick Carter has finally followed his fellow boyband members’ footsteps towards the next long overdue stage of their adult life… deciding to get married!

The Backstreet Boys heartthrob popped the question to his girlfriend of almost two years, Lauren Kitt, earlier this week.

He shares to People magazine:

“I had the ring in my pocket for two weeks. I was like, ‘I don’t want it anymore!’ It was driving me insane. I just wanted to get it out of my hands and on to hers.”

How sweet is that?

When the time came, Nick proposed with a 7-carat ring in front of their friends and family in Florida Keys.

“She said, ‘Yes,’ and I’m, like, ‘I don’t know what to do. She said, ‘You’re supposed to put it on my finger.’ So I did. I was in shock.”

The wife-to-be told the magazine:

“I wasn’t expecting it. It just felt very surreal. We both are just so happy in love right now and on cloud nine.”

Congratulations, you two!
