Justin Timberlake’s first-time fatherhood seems to have inspired former bandmate Lance Bass to have a child with husband Michael Turchin. The boyhood friends met recently at NBC studios where Timberlake and his wife, Jessica Biel, were shooting the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. Bass reportedly could not hide his admiration of how parenthood has changed his friend and ex-*NSYNC co-star.
Speaking during the Meredith Viera Show, Bass said he was happy to see his friend again after a long time. “It has been five months and it is so amazing to see a friend go through this, because you know, I grew up with him since he was 14-years-old,” he said in a nostalgic tone. The radio host was quick to point out that JT is an “amazing dad now,” and he added that, “all he wants to talk about is the kid.” Bass also noted the charm in Timberlake as a father, which seems to have inspired him to start a family.
Timberlake and wife Biel were blessed with a baby boy christened Silas Randall in April. Judging by the pictures he shared on social media platforms, the singer is closely attached to his son who has, “proud father’s eyes.” The 34-year-old musician told Jimmy Fallon that fatherhood has given him a new outlook and this seems to have inspired Bass to have a child of his own with husband Turchin.
“I cannot wait to be a dad myself just because I would love to know what that selflessness feels like,” Bass was quoted stating in one of the gossip magazines. He immediately acknowledged that he and Michael had many options to have a child as same-sex parents.
“One of the reasons I wanted to marry Michael was because I want to start a family, and we definitely in the next two or three years want to start that family,” Bass told the US Magazine. He went on to elaborate that the couple might find, “a surrogate to have our own kids.” The SiriusXM radio host is also curious to explore recent stem cell research in his quest to have a child just like his ex-band member Timberlake.
“I was reading on stem cell research …now they are saying with the skin cells of a male you can actually produce an egg and fertilize it so that you can have biological kids with two males,” he reportedly said. It is only fair to assume that Timberlake’s fatherhood might have inspired Bass to have a child in the future. The brief reunion of the co-stars at NBC studios might have far-reaching implications into future plans. The 36-year-old former *NSYNC member came out publicly in 2006 and announced to the world that he was gay.
Meanwhile, it is reported that the Mirrors singer had an altercation with a photographer at a Rihanna invited party. The party which took place at the Edition Hotel in New York was attended by Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and Gigi Hadid among others. Justin is reportedly to have been rattled by the photographer who took pictures of him without asking for permission. According to the gossip magazine, the photographer was forced to delete the pictures.
