Nick Carter no longer knows the meaning of being lonely. 

The Backstreet Boy member is engaged to Lauren Kitt, according to People.

The 33-year-old singer popped the question to his 29-year-old girlfriend this week on a small island in the Florida Keys.

"I had the ring in my pocket for two weeks," Nick reveals. "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." 

Nick admits that he was perplexed about his next step once Lauren said yes.

"She said, 'Yes,' and I'm, like, 'I don't know what to do," Nick continues. "She said, 'You're supposed to put it on my finger.' So I did. I was in shock."

And it sounds like Lauren definitely did not see this coming. 

"I wasn't expecting it. It just felt very surreal," she says. "We both are just so happy in love right now and on cloud nine." Aww!

As to when they'll actually tie the knot, it may depend on the touring plans of a certain music group.

"Our first thought was, 'We need to contact the Backstreet Boys and find out when their schedule will permit,'" Lauren says.

Lauren is an actress and fitness expert, while Nick has previously been linked to Paris Hilton.

Congrats, you two!
