Congratulations to Backstreet Boys heartthrob Nick Carter and his fiancée Lauren Kitt!
Carter got down on bended knee to propose his girlfriend of four years, fitness expert Lauren Kitt on what they now call 'Proposal Island' in Florida Keys last week.
"I had the ring in my pocket for two weeks," the Backstreet Boy told People. "I was like, 'I don't want it anymore!' It was driving me insane. I just wanted to get it out of my hands and on to hers."
The pair were enjoying a holiday with a few friends of Kitt's and her father, when Nick took her on a romantic boat ride.
The proposal was not without it's challenges however, Nick had to spend five days ahead of his planned proposal literally on his hands and knees to get the boat back in shape. And even though the engine wasn't quite complete, they managed to get to a secluded island safely.
Pictures taken by the couple show Nick on his knee proposing atop a rocky cliff. "She said,'Yes," and I'm, like, "I don't know what to do," Nick revealed. "She said, "You're supposed to put it on my finger." So I did. I was in shock."
And what did he put on her finger? A seven-carat tear-drop diamond ring from XIV KARATS, of course.
Nick took to Twitter to share his happy news: "Big question… great answer."
The future Mrs Carter commented: "Our first thought was, 'We need to contact the Backstreet Boys and find out when their schedule will permit."
The former boy-band, now man-band, are working on a new album and preparing for their sold-out fan cruise in October to celebrate their 20th anniversary.
