Tan France is about to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a dad.
The “Queer Eye” star on Tuesday shared a cheeky ultrasound photo on his social media platforms to announce that he and his husband, Rob France, are expecting their first child via a surrogate later this year.
“No, I’m not pregnant, despite this VERY realistic pic,” the fashion guru wrote. “Our hearts are so full right now. I cannot wait to hold this baby, and to show him so much love.”
Rob, an artist, echoed those sentiments in an Instagram post of his own, alongside a stunning illustration.
France, 37, has said he’s wanted to become a father “for many, many, many years.”
“I’ve wanted children since I was 19, 20,” he told NPR’s Terry Gross in 2019. “If I’d had a stable relationship at that time, I would have desperately tried to have children.” Noting that “surrogacy for gay men costs a heck of a lot,” he added, “Crazily, I still want six. I don’t know if that’s going to happen, but yeah, I still want six children.”
And in a Valentine’s Day interview with People last year, France gushed about his husband of nearly 14 years, quipping, “He’s got a body for days.”
“Every day he just tells me how much he loves me and everything he loves about me,” he said, “and I do the same for him.”
The sixth season of “Queer Eye” will be set in Austin, Texas, and is due out on Netflix later this year.
