Carter may marry in TV special

Carter

Nick Carter could bring his wedding to the small screen.

The Backstreet Boys singer proposed to fitness trainer Lauren Kitt in February, and he says their marriage could be filmed for a TV special.

“There have been offers and opportunities to film the actually wedding, like a TV show,” the 33-year-old said in a recent interview.

Carter and Kitt haven’t set a wedding date, but he says they’re thinking about “early next year.”

Carter is also busy recording a new album with the Backstreet Boys, due out this year.

Carter says he’s also written three screenplays, including a horror film in which he’d play a villain.
