Backstreet Boy Nick Carter marries

A Backstreet Boy has graduated to becoming a man. Sources confirm to People magazine that Nick Carter wed Lauren Kitt in Santa Barbara on Saturday, April 12.

“I said I’d never get married,” the 34-year-old pop star told People last year but admitted that a fellow Backstreeter helped change his mind.

“I asked Howie (Dorough for advice). I was like, ‘I love her, and I don’t want to lose her.’ And he was like, ‘Just do it!’ “

The pair got engaged in February 2013 in the Florida Keys where Carter proposed with an impressive 7-carat pear-shaped diamond ring.

Last week Kitt, a fitness expert and actress posted a photo on Instagram of her and her father with the caption, "Next Saturday the first man I ever loved with give me away to the love of my life. I love you Dad."

At least two Backstreet Boys, A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough attended pre-nuptial festivities on the Friday night before the big day.
