His New Life As A Parent
In a new share to his social media page, the singer dropped four pictures, which gave fans a look at his life as a proud dad, as well as a beautiful picture of his husband cuddling one of the babies.
“Haven’t slept much in 5 days and I’m covered in ick but I’ve never been so happy! Now there are four of us in this house that wear diapers (hint: it’s not me or @michaelturchinart),” Bass wrote in the caption.
He greeted his fellow NSYNC bandmate Chris Kirkpatrick and added a shoutout to the Green Bay Packers ahead of their Sunday NFL game.
“Also, Happy birthday Uncle Chris! @iamchriskirkpatrick GO PACK GO!” he wrote.
The first photo showed the babies sleeping on a soft thick blanket placed on top of the table with Bass posing just behind the flat surface, smiling at the camera.
The next slide featured an adorable snapshot of the twins wearing Packers onesies. In the third pic, Turchin was seen lounging on the couch while carrying one of the babies, letting the newborn sleep on his chest. Meanwhile, their pet dog laid beside him.
The last picture showed Bass leaning over the baby, who was safely tucked inside the portable car seat while on the plane.
Fans Adore The Pics
After a few hours, Bass’ post racked up more than 180,000 likes and over 4,500 comments, proving to be popular with his followers.
“I’m so happy for you guys!!” Gabrielle Union commented.
“Just breathtaking. Congratulations,” Leslie Jordan wrote.
Kris Jenner also sent Bass a message saying, “Congratulations!!!!!!!! What a blessing!!!!!!!”
“I’M CRYING YOU’RE GONNA BE THE BEST PARENTS,” noted a follower.
“Goodness, this warms my heart so very much!! They are absolutely perfect! Congrats again to you both & can’t wait to watch them grow up,” added another one.
A few hours later, Bass also shared another photo of one of the twins alongside a scary doll.
“It’s never too early for a #LanceScares. Thanks @alexa_bliss_wwe_ for what’s going to be Violet’s favorite doll!” the singer captioned the post.
Bass shared the arrival announcement on Thursday on his Instagram page, where he shared photos of the twins’ birth certificates, which included stamps of their tiny footprints.
“The baby dragons have arrived!!
Dream Come True
Bass actually revealed the baby news this past Summer. In a past interview with People, he opened up about years of surrogacy attempts, failed IVF treatments, and a miscarriage.
“We always knew we wanted at least two kids,” Bass said. “It would be nice to have a boy and a girl just to feel the experiences of raising both or whatever they end up being. I think it’s just amazing that science has gotten this far where we can make the healthiest human beings ever. And I hope in our lifetime, we’ll be able to see the whole world be able to do this.”
