The singer announced the pregnancy in a notably rainbow-filtered Instagram post in May.
“Thank you God for giving us the greatest gift we could ask for,” Carter captioned the photo of the whole family staring at 36-year-old Lauren’s baby bump. He also added a rainbow emoji and the hashtags “#pregnant,” “#werepregnant,” “#babykisses,” “#happiness” and “#family.”
The Carters have been open about their fertility struggles since first trying to get pregnant with Odin.
While competing on Dancing with the Stars in 2015, Carter told viewers that the couple were expecting their first child but that it had been a difficult journey, miscarrying a baby at 16 weeks along.

“It’s been rocky, to be quite honest with you. There have been times when we thought it wouldn’t happen,” he said.
“It was really hard on Nick,” Lauren added tearfully in the footage. “Just watching him get so excited about something, and then see him so hurt. That was hard.”
