Lance Bass has got some big plans for 2019.
The former Nsync singer turned presenter Lance Bass has announced that he and his husband, artist Michael Turchin are planning on being dads in 2019. But he revealed that the process has taken a very long, long time.
Speaking to Page Six, Lance said, “The most surprising part about the surrogacy process was how long this takes” and admitted that he and his husband are on their sixth donor already.
Writing for THEGAYUK.com, author of the Journey To Fatherhood column, Simon Hill often talked of the complex and expensive route a gay man has to undertake in order to become a father via surrogacy. In fact, it cost Simon over $150,000 after surrogate payments and legal fees.
Donor Number SIx
Speaking on his own process Lance revealed, “We had several friends going through this and it took a little while but I think we’ve broken the record for how many donors we’ve gone through. We’re on donor number six right now and we don’t even know if that one’s gonna work. So, it has been a lot longer than I thought. But, hey, here’s to a 2019 baby!”
Tweet It Out
The former singer and artist have even found it hard to find a donor. Lance explained that he’s even considering tweeting to his large fan base to find one. He said, “You would think I would get so many offers for eggs but not many people have come to me with their eggs! I think I’m going to have to tweet it out right now!”
Good luck guys!
A note from the editor.
These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. THEGAYUK.com needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.
Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.
If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.
