Lauren Michelle Kitt-Carter, who is better known for her fitness video series Kitt Fitt, is an American actress, fitness competitor, fitness expert, producer, model, and trainer. Lauren appeared on the reality show I (heart) Nick Carter along with her beau Nick Carter. If Carter is alive and healthy today, then it is said that Lauren is the only one who should be held responsible as she distanced him from alcoholism and suicide temptations.
Who is Lauren Kitt?
Lauren is the daughter of Robin and Larry Kitt who divorced shortly after her birth. Her mother is of Irish descent whereas her father is Mexican.
“I had a very normal childhood. Everyone in my household on my dad’s side was tradesmen. They leave early and return late. They used to provide for our family. (Meanwhile), the girls stayed home, cleaned, cooked, and had to get good grades from school,” Lauren recently revealed.
“My dad was pretty strict, so I didn’t grow up watching MTV as it was forbidden in my house. I didn’t even have an idea about the Backstreet Boys until my twenties. My mum was a housewife and she used to stay at home and look after me and my elder sister. “
Woefully, Lauren’s childhood wasn’t as pretty as one’s imagination. She and her siblings grew up in a dysfunctional, unconventional family. As her kid, her life was tough, it was miserable because of her parent’s divorce and her mother being a con artist.
“I remember having a very turbulent relationship with my mum, ever since my parents divorced. I was 9 years old. My mum conceived me when she was 18 and at the time, my dad was 20. So, we only had an 18-year age difference and I still recall her 30th birthday when she wanted to celebrate it with her friends and have a social life. (Now when I look back) it was hard for her to take care of two girls and we used to fight a lot,” she continued.
“I was not interested in attending school. I rebelled against my estranged parents, but when I look back, I wish I would have heard what the adults of my life advised me and stayed more in school.”
Per Lauren, she loved to stay with her mum, as she could sneak out, party, and even miss classes if needed, whereas her father was more strict. It urged her to rebel. Despite all the odds, she stayed in Tokyo for three years after she turned 18 and then moved to Paris before settling in the states.
