“I’m looking forward to being an uncle,” the 27-year-old told Celebuzz at the premiere of National Geographic Channel’s Saints & Strangers on Monday night. “It’s great to see my brother having a baby. It’s great and I’m excited for him.”
Though Aaron said he’ll “of course” be showering his future nephew with cool toys, he insisted that he’ll be a “responsible uncle” when it came to teaching him right from wrong.
“If [Nick] loves me enough, he’ll name him Aaron,” he joked.
According to Aaron, the Carter family will have plenty to talk about when he spends Thanksgiving with his brother. Baby news aside, he also revealed that the siblings — and Nick’s unborn son, by extension — are descendants of passengers on the Mayflower, the ship that brought the first Pilgrims to America.
“On my mom’s side actually,” Aaron noted. “We’re descendants of the Mayflower on the Fuller side. My grandfather was a genealogist so he found out what we’re descendants of the Mayflower.”
