The couple welcomed their first child in April 2016, according to Entertainment Tonight, which also reported that they opted for an at-home water birth on April 19, five days after his due date.
Ahead of Odin's birth, Kitt spoke with People about becoming parents. At the time, she said she and Carter were both excited for the new venture. In 2016, she told the magazine her husband had just gotten off tour at the time, and she was hopeful he'd be able to fully "enjoy this next thing." It appears he did, and continues to do so every day. "He just got off tour, so I really wanted him to enjoy this next thing, which is to become a dad, and make it about him too and shower him with love and surprises," she told People at the time.
Carter and Kitt are already excellent parents, and fans can't wait to see how they welcome another baby into their little family. Congrats!
