Remember when he told you he'd never break your heart? Well, Nick Carter, the youngest of the Backstreet Boys, is engaged, he announced Friday.
"Big question...great answer," the 33-year-old wrote with an Instagram picture showing himself with fiancée Lauren Kitt, 29.
But the proposal was hardly as simple as that post, he told People. First, the ring burned a hole in his pocket for nearly two weeks before he popped the question. Then he had to exert some elbow grease to pull off his romantic inspiration: a boat trip to a secluded island he knew from when he was young. But he hadn't used his boat in about six years — two years longer than he'd been dating Kitt.
"It took me five days literally on my hands and knees, scraping up my body [to fix it]," Carter told the mag. The couple, some friends and Kitt's father were eventually transported out to the island.
After proposing and hearing a "yes," a shocked Carter had to be prompted by his bride-to-be to stick the sparkler on her finger.
