Carter, who quit partying in 2008 after struggling with drug and alcohol abuse, credits his wife of one year, Lauren Kitt, for helping him become a "completely different person", reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"I'm a completely different person. I'm all about health, fitness and longevity now. My wife, Lauren, helps a lot. She's someone I have to be accountable to," Carter told In Touch Weekly magazine.
The couple is also thinking about having a baby.
Asked if he's planning to have children soon, he said: "Maybe the end of next year. There's no rush."
