Aaron Carter's fiancée, Melanie Martin, has received full custody of their son, Prince, more than one month after the late pop star was found dead in the bathtub of his Lancaster home.

"A hearing was held Thursday in L.A., and the court found her fit to care for her child," a representative for Martin explained to a news publication, adding how the "extremely happy and eager" mom was on her way to pick up the 1-year-old as they spoke.

Martin's mother was awarded custody of Prince in September amid the troubled parents' struggle with drug abuse and domestic violence.

"I’m honoring Aaron today and I know he would be so proud of me," Martin said of Carter, who passed away on Saturday, November 5, after the legal win. "I’m very emotional thinking we could have been a family, but Aaron would be so happy knowing I got him back.”
