Back in January, the Carters candidly shared their thoughts on having another child after suffering multiple miscarriages throughout the years. Nick and Lauren admitted that the newest addition to the family was a complete "surprise," although they couldn't be happier.

Lauren explained that she was "fully set on having two children." In fact, OK! reported she didn't even know she was pregnant until she was about five-and-a-half months along, as she "didn't have any symptoms; I didn't have anything indicating that I was pregnant," Lauren explained.

The unexpected addition was met with excitement, with Carter saying: "With everything that 2020 has given to the entire world, I look at it as a blessing. We love our two children and we pride ourselves on being great parents."
