NSYNC's Lance Bass and husband take first step on road to fatherhood
The 38-year-old ex NSYNC member will also be inculcated into the Hollywood Walk of Fame later this month.
Lance Bass and husband Michael Turchin are reportedly taking their first step towards parenthood.
In an interview with ET Online on Friday (20 April), Lance opened up about his plans to expand his family and revealed that he and Turchin "started the process" last week.
The 38-year-old NSYNC member has also been admittedly quite 'freaked out' about the whole thing. "We're excited, and it's going a lot faster than we ever thought, which is kind of freaking me out," he confessed during the interview.
"It's something we're very excited about. I mean, the reason I wanted to get married to this guy is I know he'll be an amazing dad," he said of Turchin, whom he married in 2014. "We've been putting it off for a long time, but this is the year that we're actually starting the process," he added.
As ET reports, it looks like Bass and his husband are getting down to the details and have been quite busy with the entire process. “I thought we had a good, like, year to really choose things, but it’s happening so fast,” he quipped.
“I mean, we’ve met with surrogates, we’re looking at eggs, we now have the person representing us, and contracts are being made, and it’s such a process that we had no idea existed. But it’s also fascinating too. It’s already amazing.”
Meanwhile, Bass' former bandmates are set to reunite for NSYNC's Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony on April 30. Ellen DeGeneres and Carson Daly will be presenting the boy band with their star on the Walk of Fame. During the interview, Bass expressed his disbelief at the ordeal, saying, "We're always joking around, so this is just one of those weird events that we're like, 'Really? How did we get here? This is so weird.' Our whole career, we felt like we didn't deserve anything. And we're pretty much feeling that with this star too," he said.
Nevertheless, NYSYNC could not be more excited about the event. They've even planned a special pop-up shop for their fans to celebrate the event. 'The Dirty Pop-Up' will be coming to LA from April 28 to May 1 with special merchandise and photo activations to celebrate 20 years of NSYNC.
"The fans are who gave us the star. They're the ones who wrote the people and raised the money... We wanted to do something a little more special than just showing up at the ceremony, so we've created a nice *NSYNC experience," Bass said of the pop-up show.
"We're building it now, so I have no idea what it's going to look like. But it'll be really fun, installation pieces that you can have a lot of great Instagram pictures with."
