According to Nameberry, Odin was the "name of the supreme Norse god of art, culture, wisdom and law - who was handsome, charming and eloquent into the bargain."

Lauren was in labour for 30 hours before delivering Odin via a water birth, according to Entertainment Tonight, which was first to confirm the birth. He weighed 8lbs 11oz.

Nick married fitness expert Lauren in 2014 following a romantic proposal on a cliff top in the Florida Keys at sunset. Their relationship was the focus on a VH1 reality show called I Heart Nick Carter.

The couple announced Lauren's pregnancy in October, making Nick the fifth and final member of Backstreet Boys to become a father.
