Queer Eye’s Tan France And Husband Welcome Baby Two Months Early

Tan France and husband Rob — who announced to the world they were having a baby via surrogacy in this viral Instagram photo — have introduced their baby boy, Ismail, to the world a few months earlier than expected.

38-year-old France, Queer Eye’s fashion expert, said the couple are “fully obsessed” with their little bundle of joy, who was born via surrogacy nearly two months ahead of schedule.

“Give our son a warm welcome," France said. "Ismail France, born July 10th. He came 7 weeks early, so he's been in the NICU for the past 3 weeks. But, today, we finally got to bring him home. We love him so, so much. Like, fully obsessed."


Tan said he and Rob plan to get some "invaluable" advice from two of their famous friends who are also new parents; model Gigi Hadid, who welcomed her first child, daughter Khai, in September, and actress Emma Stone, who gave birth to her first daughter, Louise Jean, in March.

The couple also gave an update on their wonderful surrogate, and paid tribute to her for helping them start their family.

"Our Surrogate is doing so great, post labor," France said, "and we couldn't be more grateful for the greatest gift in our lives.”
