Fiercely independent, Lauren Kitt was born in Southern California but moved completely on her own to a small town in central Japan at the age of twenty-one to work for an innovative veterinary hospital group. After several years, and in an effort to further explore the world and develop her language skills, Lauren moved to Paris, France.
In addition to speaking four languages and working on a degree in nutrition, Lauren is a professional fitness competitor and is ranked nationally in the WBFF (World Beauty Fashion Fitness). She is deeply committed to environmental issues and animal rights and is the proud co-parent (with Nick) of two dogs, Igby and Nacho, and a bambino cat named Mulder.
To date, Nick Carter has had 8 Grammy nominations, 9 studio albums, and has sold over 130 million albums worldwide as part of the Backstreet Boys, making them the best-selling boy band in history. In addition to his work with the Backstreet Boys, Nick has produced two studio albums, Now or Never and I'm Taking Off. In 2013, his autobiography was published entitled Facing The Music And Living To Talk About It.
Born to be a performer, Carter grew up appearing in movies, starring in commercials and competing in countless talent shows. In 1992, Nick hit his big break at the young age of 12 after becoming an international superstar as the youngest member of The Backstreet Boys. In addition to singing, Nick also plays the guitar and drums. With his pretty-boy looks and strong vocals, he became an instant teen idol and was cited as one of Teen People Magazine's "21 Hottest Stars Under 21," No.9 on People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" in 2000 and CosmoGirl's "Sexiest Man of The World" in 2002.
After 21 years of performing and receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Nick continues to tour worldwide with the Backstreet Boys. This year, he also joined forces with New Kids On The Block star Jordan Knight in a duo dubbed Nick & Knight. Now an accomplished writer, producer and director, Nick broke hearts everywhere when he married his love of 5 years, Lauren Kitt.
