Aaron Carter has had his share of turbulent times. But those times might now be behind him, because he’s going to be a daddy.
According to People magazine, the singer went on Instagram Live on Tuesday (April 21) to let fans know that he and his girlfriend Melanie Martin are expecting a baby.
“Obviously I have a baby on the way,” Carter said while showing off what looked to be a positive pregnancy test. “I’m going to be a busy father for sure. This is the official announcement, we’re pregnant.”
It’s a rather odd turn of events for the couple, who made news just a few months ago when Martin was arrested over a domestic dispute with Carter.
But for now, things are looking up for the couple.
“This is what we both want,” Carter told People magazine exclusively. “We both were trying for it. I’m just focused on the future and being a dad. I want to be a good dad. I’m focused, my music career has been doing really well, and touring, having my clothing line out, all that stuff I have going for me that isn’t necessarily just music. Family is most important to me.”
And yes, Carter is even showing off his Dad Bod on Instagram already.
“Dad Bod,” he simply wrote alongside a selfie showing off his physique on Tuesday (April 21.)
