Nick Carter engaged? EDIT: it's official!




EDIT: IT'S PEOPLE-OFFICIAL.

Nick Carter has found his fire, his one desire.

"I had the ring in my pocket for two weeks," the Backstreet Boy tells PEOPLE exclusively of his engagement to fitness expert/actress Lauren Kitt.


"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."

For the momentous occasion, Carter, 33, took his fiancée, 29, to the Florida Keys where he planned a romantic boat ride to a secluded island – but things did not go as smoothly as expected.

"My boat was in such bad condition because I hadn't used it for, like, six years. It took me five days literally on my hands and knees, scraping up my body [to fix it,]" Carter says. "The engine wasn't complete yet but we still decided to go out."

Despite the engine stalling a few times as they set out to sea Wednesday, Carter and Kitt – along with some close friends and Kitt's father – arrived at a small island Carter had spent time on as a child.

It was there, on the island the couple now refers to as "Engagement Island," that the Backstreet Boy dropped to one knee and presented his girlfriend of over four years with a seven-carat diamond ring from XIV KARATS.

"She said, 'Yes,' and I'm, like, 'I don't know what to do," Carter tells PEOPLE of the proposal. "She said, 'You're supposed to put it on my finger.' So I did. I was in shock."


The proposal came as a surprise to the bride-to-be as well.

"I wasn't expecting it. It just felt very surreal," explains Kitt. "We both are just so happy in love right now and on cloud nine."

And while the couple is excited for their wedding, there are a few other people they must consult before planning their impending nuptials – the band.

"Our first thought was, 'We need to contact the Backstreet Boys and find out when their schedule will permit,
'" Kitt says of wedding planning while the band works on a new album and prepares for their sold-out fan cruise in October to celebrate their 20th anniversary.

"It's not up to us. It's up to the schedule. We're just excited and looking forward to the next chapter of our lives."

I feel like some BSB stan (egads) said that she's "mentally abusive" toward him or something once on here.
lumosofmylife 22nd-Feb-2013 08:06 pm (UTC)
Wasn't he physically abusive to Paris Hilton?
bostongirl2003 22nd-Feb-2013 08:07 pm (UTC)
that was a rumor but from posts at the time it seems like she got fucked up after they broke up.
katey311 22nd-Feb-2013 08:15 pm (UTC)
He has a history of being abused my his girlfriends. Willa Ford was rumored to be the worst.

bostongirl2003 22nd-Feb-2013 08:04 pm (UTC)
was he engaged to Paris or they just dated? I know his dumbass got her name tattooed on him.
onmyshore 22nd-Feb-2013 08:06 pm (UTC)
That shows an impressive lack of foresight, doesn't it?
bostongirl2003 22nd-Feb-2013 08:08 pm (UTC)
cocaine is a helluva drug.
fadedsouls 23rd-Feb-2013 02:27 pm (UTC)
Just dated. And the horrible Paris tattoo (looked so freaking tacky) got covered with his Old Habits Die Hard tattoo, so I guess he learned his lesson there, lol
flyingpigs_live 22nd-Feb-2013 08:07 pm (UTC)
he used to be so cute. what happened?
ichdontthinksoo 22nd-Feb-2013 08:14 pm (UTC)
Ikr, pretty ironic that the cutie pie is the one who aged worse.
kerrigwen 23rd-Feb-2013 09:01 pm (UTC)
like most cute boys - he grew up. :-/

I saw a video of him performing live recently though (saw it recently, the vid was from a year ago, just after leslie passed away) - and he didn't look bad at all tbh. maybe he just doesn't photograph well anymore? in the vid he looked like a proper decent manly-man.
yurasama_love 22nd-Feb-2013 08:08 pm (UTC)
lol, I can just imagine girls from 5th and 6th grade being totally upset over this.

here it's ok.
katey311 22nd-Feb-2013 08:13 pm (UTC)
Aw man. You totally beat me to this.


regardless:
I'm super happy for him, but the residual teenybopper in me is positively crushed.

Brian and Nick, but I had a soft spot for Kevin, too.

I could never get into Howie because I always thought he looked like my dad when he was young

It was always Nick when I was younger. However, I'd go with Brian now.

AJ was.

Howie is.
weebles_fall Re: obg who's your favorite BSB?22nd-Feb-2013 09:31 pm (UTC)
Kevin was my first BSB crush but then I was called to the dark side and Nick became the love of my life, lol.
