Congratulations are in order: Lance Bass and husband Michael Turchin are expecting twins — a boy and a girl! The couple announced in a horror-movie-themed TikTok video on June 1 that they're preparing to welcome their first babies together this October. The news comes over a year after the former *NSYNC singer shared that his and Michael's surrogate experienced a pregnancy loss at eight weeks.
"When we were pregnant last year, our surrogate miscarried while being pregnant with twins," Lance told People. "Because of what we've been through the last four years, we were very cautious to get excited. 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."
Now that they've shared their news, the duo are getting excited thinking about the experiences they'll get to see through their kids' eyes, like holidays and visiting Disney for the first time. "I just can't wait for them to have such happy experiences," Michael said. "I am going to get that happiness just by seeing them so happy."
Lance and Michael have been married since 2014, but according to Lance, have been talking about starting a family since they met 10 years ago. We couldn't be more thrilled for the couple as they prepare to be dads!
