Aaron Carter is going to be a father!

The 32-year-old former pop star officially announced that he and on/off girlfriend Melanie Martin are expecting their first child together – three weeks after she was arrested for alleged domestic violence.

She was held on $50,000 bail in Lancaster, California before the charges were dropped. At the time, Aaron Carter addressed the arrest on social media and told fans that he was “devastated” that it had happened…

“So sad ;( I hope she gets the help she needs. no one deserves domestic abuse female OR MALE #DomesticAbuse #Cheater she literally chocked [sic] me out… I’m devastated,” Aaron Carter wrote on Twitter last month.

It seems like the couple is moving onwards and upwards though, as they both appear to be looking forward to the new chapter in their lives…

“Love wins,” Melanie wrote on Instagram, alongside a picture of her and Aaron Carter kissing.

“This is the official announcement: we’re pregnant,” Aaron Carter added.

“This is what we both want. We both were trying for it,” he told People.

“I’m just focused on the future and being a dad. 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.”

Aaron Carter and Melanie Martin first went public with their relationship in January this year.

They seem to be moving at a very fast pace, as she reportedly moved in with him shortly after meeting, and he got her name tattooed on his face – yes, you read that right – last month.

We sincerely wish them the best
