Aaron Carter is going to be a father.

The former teen pop star went live on Instagram Tuesday to announce that his girlfriend Melanie Martin is expecting. "Obviously I have a baby on the way," the 32-year-old told his fans, reportedly showing them the pregnancy test (?). "I’m going to be a busy father for sure," he continued.

“I want to be a good dad,” the singer told People. “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.”

In February, Carter shared that he and Martin had moved in together.

The next step, of course, was to have her name tattooed on his face.

In late March, Martin was reportedly arrested for domestic violence. Carter seemingly weighed in on the dispute, tweeting, "you don't have to wait for someone to treat you bad repeatedly. All it takes is once, and if they get away with it that once, if they know they can treat you like that, then it sets the pattern for the future.”

Carter told People the charges have since been dropped and the two are back together. “We just realized that we love each other,” he said.
