Aaron Carter is set to become a father.

On Tuesday (April 21), the former child star, 32, broke the big news on Instagram Live, revealing that he and girlfriend Melanie Martin are expecting a child together. "Obviously, I have a baby on the way. I'm going to be a busy father for sure," he told viewers while holding up a pregnancy test. "This is the official announcement. We're pregnant."

Meanwhile, in a statement to PEOPLE, Carter explained that despite the pair's troubled history, the pregnancy is what they both want. "We both were trying for it. I'm just focused on the future and being a dad," he said. "I want to be a good dad. 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."

It's been a whirlwind 2020 for the pair. Back in January, the two went public when the singer shared a photo of the two on Instagram. Soon after, they moved in together. Three months later, Carter debuted a face tattoo of Martin's first name atop his eyebrow.

Were still learning so much about each other, what our boundaries are, hers and mine. Notice HER comes first always put your woman first before your own selfish needs. That's what my daddy always taught me. Do right by your woman happy wife happy life. I've never met a woman more invested into me than you my darling @missmelaniemartin you've shown me a love that I never thought existed. From my boundaries I have for myself that our met and knowing she actually DOES something about it. You all can talk all the shit you want and call me names and slander me. But we all know what it is. I just want to move forward in the best way possible. Melanie and I have the same goals in life. I'm just showing her a different side of love that I myself am not accustomed too. So that's why I made it a point to do things differently. Obviously my sweetheart and I have different lifestyles. She moved in with me and has been communicating at least 12 hours a week to be home. She's a blessing her love is worth it. And that's what means the most to me. Funny story about my love tattoo under my left eye but we can get to that another day. 🥰 you never know what the tides will bring and the crescent moon under my eye.
