Lance Bass is finally going to be a dad!
The NSYNC star revealed the exciting news during an interview with People magazine, revealing he and his husband, Michael Turchin, have been waiting for years for this moment.
After years of surrogacy attempts, failed IVF treatments and a miscarriage, the couple, who have been married since 2014, are expecting boy/girl twins.
“Because of what we’ve been through the last four years, we were very cautious to get excited,” Bass told People. “And it kind of sucks because when you find out you’re pregnant, you want to celebrate with your family. You start planning their future in your head already, but we were so scared because we didn’t want to go through the pain again of losing them. We told our friends and family about the ninth week, when we finally felt comfortable. You think you’re going to jinx it or something.”
The couple told People the twins are due in early November, although Bass revealed he would love for them to arrive before Halloween.
“I love Halloween,” Bass shared. “When I found out that they were going to be coming at Halloween, I immediately thought, ‘Our baby announcement has to be some kind of Halloween theme.’”
“I grew up in this family unit where I dreamt of having a kid and having that dynamic,” Bass told People. “And sometimes in your life you feel like, “Okay, I’ll never be able to have that. I’m not supposed to have that.” But now we’re realizing, “No, we do need that. We deserve that and we can have this.” And I love that our mentality is definitely changing in the community.”
