This has been聽a huge year for Nick Carter thus far 鈥 not only did the BSB announce a trial run at a Vegas residency, he recently had聽baby boy Odin with wife Lauren Kitt Carter, and now, he鈥檚 following the lead of Kelly Clarkson and Chrissy Teigen by sharing the first pic聽of the little tyke with the world.

鈥淒addy will be home soon, Odin,鈥 Nick assures his little bundle of joy (and fans everywhere) via Instagram. Odin is predictably as cute as can be, sleeping tranquilly amidst a sea of blankets. Even Nick himself can鈥檛 help from gushing, writing 鈥淚 just love how peaceful he is,鈥 along with the hashtag 鈥#babies鈥 鈥#love鈥 and 鈥#family.鈥
