Lance Bass’s child announcement is so further for the sweetest purpose
The former * NSYNC star and husband are finally going to be fathers after a long journey to parenting.
Lance Bass and his husband Michael Turchin say “Bye Bye Bye” to their empty nest!
The couple, who got married in 2014, have always dreamed of raising a family together, and this week they announced that their dream will finally come true with the arrival of Twins of boys / girls this autumn. They shared the exciting news with an over-the-top horror-style production.
“At first we thought, ‘Yeah, let’s just do a simple TikTok video,'” Michael said People. But with the twins due around his favorite vacation, Lance wasn’t ready to keep it simple. “I love Halloween. When I found out they were coming for Halloween, I immediately thought, ‘Our baby announcement has to be something of a Halloween theme. Maybe we should do a movie trailer, a horror movie trailer where we don’t really say it. You have to find out. ‘ And that’s what we did. “

Sure, the production is a little intense for a baby announcement, but after years of painfully trying to raise a family, we totally understand why the * NSYNC alum and husband were so eager to make a big announcement .
Lance and Michael knew that with IVF and surrogacy it probably wouldn’t work the first time, but they had no idea How heavy It would be. “We went through nine different egg donors, which is rare,” said Michael. Last year, their surrogate mother finally got pregnant with twins, but unfortunately a miscarriage, which meant the couple had to start the process over.
If your new Surrogate mother became pregnant Earlier this year, Lance admitted the couple were “careful about getting upset”. He continued, “It kind of sucks because when you find out you’re pregnant, you want to celebrate with your family. You’re already starting to plan her future in your head, but we were so scared because we didn’t want to go through the pain of losing her again. ”But they were thrilled when their surrogate mother reached her ninth week of pregnancy and felt the couple that it was finally safe to tell their families.
Having twins was child’s play for the couple because, for one thing, Michael is also a boy / girl twin. Twins also meant that either of them could fertilize one of the eggs! Although there is a long and hard waySays Lance, “We knew we wanted to be very open and transparent with our experience because we wanted gay couples to have a relationship with us and be able to say, ‘Oh my god, we’re going through that too.’ Or like, ‘Oh, hopefully that’s what we can do.’ And give them some kind of blueprint for how to do it. “
The twins are expected to arrive in early November 2021, but Halloween-loving Lance hopes they’ll come a few days early because he “needs”[s] they’re supposed to be Halloween babies. ”Well, whenever the babies come, we look forward so much to the great fathers-to-be!
