Get ready to sing a lullaby, bye, bye: Lance Bass is a dad! The NSYNC alum and husband Michael Turchin welcomed twins — a boy named Alexander James and a girl named Violet Betty — via surrogacy on Wednesday, the couple announced Thursday evening.
“The baby dragons have arrived,” Bass announced on Instagram with photos of the new babies’ birth certificates that featured their little footprints. “I can not express how much love I feel right now. Thank you for all the kind wishes. It meant a lot. Now, how do you change a diaper??”
Turchin made a post of his own writing: “They’re pure perfection and yes that includes the dozens of poops we’ve already dealt with. It’s the second generation of twins in the family: Turchin is also a boy/girl twin.
Bass, 42, and Turchin, 34, tied the knot in December 2014, which was documented on the 2015 E! television special, “Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding.” His NSYNC bandmates Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and JC Chasez were in attendance.
Many celebrity friends congratulated the couple on their new family additions.
According to Bass, he and Turchin have had their sights set on parenthood for more than a decade. “We had been talking about having a family since we met. We’ve been together for 10 years,” he told People in June.
But the couple’s road to parenthood hasn’t been without challenges. Bass revealed their surrogate miscarried last year while pregnant with twins.
