He may have taken home second place on Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday, but Nick Carter isn’t putting away his dancing shoes any time soon.

The “I Will Wait” singer is heading out on a two-month solo tour in February and will be touring with the Backstreet Boys later next year.

Oh. And in between all that, he’s going to become a father!

“I’m taking a couple of well-needed months off to be with my wife and really cater to her in this time,” Carter, 35, told PEOPLE after the DWTS finale on Tuesday.

“And then, in April, we’re going to take a little time off there as well for when the baby comes.”

Carter and wife Lauren announced they were expecting on DWTS in October and found out live during the show that they’re set to welcome a son.

“My wife really wanted a boy, so I’m just happy it turned out that way,” Carter told PEOPLE of the reveal last month. “But we would have been happy either way,” shares Carter.

Added his wife: “We just wanted a healthy baby, but preferably a healthy baby boy.”
