Lance Bass and Michael Turchin are going to be amazing dads — once they find the right donor! The former NSYNC member opened up to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY about their surrogacy journey.
Not long now! Lance Bass, 39, and his husband Michael Turchin, 31, desperately want to be dads, and they’re getting closer and closer to making that happen. They got married in 2014, started their surrogacy journey three years later, and are well on their way to their first baby. “We’re getting closer!” Lance told Hollywoodlife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “It’s been a longer process than what we thought which everyone warned us about, but right now we’re on our fifth egg donor, so everyone keeps dropping out for different reasons, but that’s what’s great about IVF! You get to weed out dangerous things so you get to have the healthiest kids, so right now we’re on donor number five and hopefully her genes will really match with our genes and we’ll have the healthiest baby ever.”
So when are they expecting their little ones? “Fingers crossed in the next couple of months we’ll be pregnant,” Lance said. How exciting is that? He even admitted that they know exactly what they want — although they’ll be happy with any healthy baby, of course! “In a perfect world we want to have twins, one mine, one his. You’re not guaranteed that will happen, but that’s what we’re going to go for,” he explained. The former NSYNC member and his husband aren’t as worried about the sex of their two babies.
But while he was open about all of this, he kept the names they’ve been brainstorming on the DL. “I don’t want to jinx it too much,” Lance said. And we don’t blame him! He and Michael will definitely come up with something cute for both of their babies. We’re so excited for the happy couple! They’ll be joining along list of celebrities who have used surrogates from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka.
We caught up with Lance at the 13th annual Christmas in LA event benefiting the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, which was hosted by the Real Housewives of Dallas star LeeAnne Locken. She spoke to us as well, dishing about wedding plans about her upcoming nuptials to Rich Emberlin. “My focus is where it belongs, which is on my vows to a man who I plan to stand by for the rest of my life and defend and respect and honor and love,” she said. But will her co-stars be there? That still hasn’t been decided. “I thought they’d all be invited but I have to say, rewatching this week’s episode and the things that are about to be said about my relationship are beyond shocking and disappointing when I know that they’re based in bullshit and laughable,” she said. “I think I’m going to let that be Rich’s choice because I think he’s the most under attack.”
Wow — there is so much on the horizon for both of these celebs! We can’t wait to watch them begin their new chapters.
