Lance Bass and His Husband Are Expecting Twins This Fall
June 3, 2021
Lance Bass is going to be a dad to twins!
The former ‘N Sync singer and his husband Michael Turchin recently announced they’re expecting boy-girl twins.
The soon-to-be, first-time parents posted a TikTok video on Tuesday June 1 that hinted at the news. In the caption Bass wrote, “"Coming this fall. #TheyreComing #HappyPride #ForYourPride #TodayIsLove #Zaddies.”
In the Halloween-esque video, the two hear cries inside their house. They ask a paranormal investigator to look into it and are told “there’s more than one.” Later shots in the video include the silhouettes of a boy and girl that look like they could be straight out of The Shining and the couple approaching “two buns in the oven.” The video ends with the words “coming soon.”
Bass and Turchin, who got married in 2014, have been trying to become parents for some time now. They have had nine different egg donors, surrogacy attempts and unsuccessful IVF treatments, the couple told PEOPLE. Bass added that their surrogate was pregnant with twins last year but miscarried.
“Because of what we’ve been through the last four years, we were very cautious to get excited,” Bass told the outlet. “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.”
He added that the couple has always wanted twins, as Turchin has a twin sister. “[Michael] just loved that experience,” Bass said.
The couple is expecting the babies to arrive in early November, but are hopeful they will arrive closer to Halloween. “I love Halloween. 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. Maybe we should do a movie trailer, a horror movie trailer where we don’t actually say it. You have to figure it out.’ And so that’s what we did,” Bass told the outlet. “And so we called my friend, Colton Tran, who is an incredible horror director. We did it within three days. We had it written and everything, we shot it one day and edited it another day and it was ready. So I was so happy with how it came out. Michael has to be on board with all my crazy ideas.”
Congratulations to the parents-to-be!
