'Queer Eye's Tan France to Become a Real Daddy, Announces First Baby

Tan France is going to be a dad.

"Rob and I are lucky enough to be on our way to being parents."

Well if you always thought Queer Eye's Tan France was a bit of a silver-haired daddy, here's another point to add to your case: he's about to actually become one.

In a new post on Instagram the fashion consultant announced the impending birth of his first child.

"So happy to finally share that WE'RE HAVING A BABY!!" he wrote. In the accompanying photo he appears shirtless with one hand cupping one pectoral muscle, while the nipple of the other is covered by an emoji. Over his belly, an ultrasound, presumably of his coming child, has been photoshopped in. "No, I'm not pregnant, despite this VERY realistic pic."

"With the greatest gift/help of the most wonderful surrogate, Rob and I are lucky enough to be on our way to being parents, this summer," France wrote. Tan has been married to his husband Rob France, who is a self-taught freelance illustrator, since 2007.

"Something we've wanted for soooo many years," Tan continued. "Our hearts are so full right now. I cannot wait to hold this baby, and to show him so much love."

Rob also celebrated the impending birth on his Instagram. "We have a beautiful little angel on the way and I didn't think it was humanly possible to feel like this," he wrote alongside an illustration.

The news makes The Frances the latest celebrity LGBTQ+ couple to announce additions to their family. Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris announced the adoption of their daughter earlier this year. Anderson Cooper also announced the birth of his son, via surrogacy, in 2020. Don Lemon also recently expressed an interest in adding to his family.
