Watch: Nick and Aaron Carter's Sister Bobbie Jean Dead at 41

Nick Carter returned to Instagram a week after his sister Bobbie Jean Carter's shocking death to share a sweet family moment.

On Dec. 30, the Backstreet Boys singer, 43, shared a video of his and wife Lauren Kitt Carter's eldest son Odin, 7, golfing. After the child swings and hits a ball, Nick tells him, "Great shot!"

Nick, who also shares daughters Saoirse, 4, and Pearl, 2, with Lauren, captioned the post, "Cherishing these moments."

Bobbie Jean found unresponsive in a bathroom in her home in Tampa, Fla. on Dec. 23 and rushed to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said last week.

While an official cause of death has yet to be shared publicly, Bobbie Jean's passing was confirmed by her mom Jane Carter.

"I am in shock from learning of the sudden death of my daughter, Bobbie Jean," she told TMZ, "and I will need time to process the terrible reality of this happening for the third time."

In addition to the tragic losses of three of Nick's siblings, he and his family also suffered the loss of his dad Bob Carter at age 64 in 2017.

"You had a great sense of humor, and a lively spirit," Angel wrote in a Dec. 24 Instagram message. "Growing up, I was your baby, and you were my best friend."

"Life wasn't fair to you, that I know," she added. "Sometimes, it feels like you didn't have a shot, no matter what."

Angel went on to further reflect on their shared childhood.

"Experiencing innocence instead of being burdened by trauma, pain, and suffering is incredibly important for children, particularly at such a young age," she wrote. "I know why Leslie, Aaron, and now you ended up in the circumstances that you did. I share that pain we experienced during our childhood and I'm sorry you didn't have an opportunity for a better life."

"We all need to break down barriers, reduce stigmas, and cultivate a society where seeking mental health support is met with understanding and encouragement," she continued. "This starts with our children, and creating healthy conversation within the home."

After sharing mental health resources, Angel concluded her post with another nod to her sister.

"I love you BJ," she wrote, "you're free now."
