Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter Shares His Christmas Traditions: Video

Naughty or nice? Nick Carter gets the full Elf on the Shelf experience this Christmas – and luckily for We, he captured it all on video.

The Backstreet Boy, 41, and his wife, Lauren Kitt, given We Weekly an exclusive look at how they are celebrating the holidays this year with their three children: Odin, 5, Saoirse, 2, and Pearl, 7 months.

For starters, they’re kicking off a few new traditions, including introducing their toddlers to the elf on the shelf. The plush elf doll, which debuted in 2004, is trending Yuletide with other famous parents, including Kourtney Kardashian, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Phillips busy.

The story goes that Santa Claus sends his elves to little girls and boys during the day to spot them and report their behavior to him before he makes his list and double checks it. Each day before Christmas, the elf appears in a new place in the house, with some parents choosing to create elaborate scenes for their children’s enjoyment.

“It’s the first year that we’ve done it with our children. We’re going to ask the elf to make sure the kids bathe properly. He’s waiting here to report to Santa,” Kitt, 38, said. We, before hanging the little guy on the shower door.

Carter wasn’t as familiar with the sneaky, festive characters, who, according to Kitt, “hide around the house, like magic, and the kids find them.” Wink wink.

The “I Want It That Way” singer, however, quickly picked things up and even seemed to have fun planting those mischievous elves in his fireplace garland – the perfect place to keep an eye out for Odin and Saoirse, who I don’t want to end up on Santa’s naughty list.

Carter and Kitt also go big when it comes to their exterior decorations – literally. the masked singer The Season 4 alum was spotted wearing a silver ornament as big as a beach ball.

The couple, who wed in April 2014, have a lot to celebrate this year. The pop star and personal trainer welcomed daughter Pearl in April.

“As a parent knows everything [sic] Alright, sometimes things don’t go the way you planned,” Kitt tweeted at the time. “We had a few minor complications, but things are going a bit better after the first night.”

The couple returned home with their baby almost a week later and Kitt said We that Pearl “does well” and “has no side effects from this”.
