Picking a name for your baby is no simple task since, ya know, they’ll be stuck with it – for better or worse – for the rest of their lives. Maybe you’ll opt for an untraditional name like a food-based first name or a movie-inspired moniker. You could let your fave celeb’s baby names inspire you or maybe even a beloved pet. If you’re Nick Carter and wife Lauren Kitt, then the reason behind the name for their soon-to-arrive baby boy is something strong. Like, well, strength.
“It’s a very strong name,” Nick revealed. “We can’t say the name yet. I’ve been instructed by my wife to keep it under wraps, but we have a name.”
The 36-year-old Backstreet Boy is practically swooning over his lady’s baby-mama-ness telling ET, “I don’t want to get all sappy, [but] she’s the reason I felt comfortable, and I knew that she would be the perfect mother. She would be able to help me teach our child all the things that he needs to learn.”
And in return, Lauren is just as excited to see Nick as a new papa, praising “the unconditional love that he can give to his son and his son can give to him… and the family that he always wanted.”
Whatever the name happens to be (and you better believe we’ll let you know as soon as we find out!) we should be finding out any day now as the new arrival is due April 12. We just hope that Nick and Lauren have taken into consideration these 5 things that every first-time parents should know about baby names.

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this article mistakenly referred to Nick as a “former Backstreet Boy” when in fact he is very much a current member. How could we mess this one up?? Our bad, guys.
