Tan France Explains His Pregnancy Announcement Photo

Tan and Rob France are the latest celebrity LGBTQ+ couple to announce they’re expecting a new addition to their family.

Queer Eye’s fashion expert Tan announced on social media Tuesday that the couple are expecting their first baby later this summer via surrogacy.

"So happy to finally share that WE'RE HAVING A BABY!" Tan said.

“No, I’m not pregnant, despite this VERY realistic pic,” the 37-year-old wrote, alongside a topless photo of himself holding a superimposed image of a sonogram over his stomach.

“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,” he said. “Something we’ve wanted for SOooo many years. Our hearts are so full right now.”

Although they didn’t reveal the sex of the baby, Tan did hint that it's a boy, adding; “I cannot wait to hold this baby, and to show him so much love.”

Tan also explained why he chose to post the photo of himself pretending to hold a pregnant belly for the announcement.

“And this pic is meant to just be a bit of fun. Playing into the usual pregnancy announcements, because I so wish I could carry my baby,” he admitted.

Illustrator Rob posted his own announcement moments later, along with one of his original pieces of art.

“We have a beautiful little angel on the way and I didn’t think it was humanly possible to feel like this,” he said, followed by a few heart and crying emojis.

Tan will be the second member of Queer Eye’s Fab Five to become a father, joining Karamo Brown who has two sons.

Tan’s four Queer Eye co-hosts all sent their love and best wishes to the couple Tuesday night.

“Yay!!!!!!! Uncle Momo is going to spoil this baby!!!!!” Karamo commented.

“So happy for you!!!” Jonathan Van Ness posted. “I’m so proud of you and Rob you are two of the sweetest most genuine people in the world & this is the most exciting news ever.”

“Now I know what it’s like to cry tears of joy and be turned on simultaneously thank you and congrats boys!!!!” Anthony said, referring to Tan’s shirtless photo.

“The joy of this post outshines the creepiness of this pic,” Bobby laughed, with a heart emoji.
