The world might be getting another 'NSYNC baby soon! Just days after former bandmate and new dad Justin Timberlake shared new photos of his little bundle of joy, Lance Bass dished to Meredith Vieira that he wants to start a family soon with husband Michael Turchin.

"I can't wait to be a dad myself just because I would love to know what that selflessness feels like," Bass said on Vieira's talk show Thursday, adding that he and Turchin are likely to have children in the next few years. "One of the reasons I wanted to marry him was because I want to start a family," he said.

Bass, — whose December wedding to Turchin made history as the first same-sex couple to marry on an American TV network when their nuptials aired on E! in February — also opened up to Vieira about In Vitro Fertilization. "I know people are very on the fence with IVF and all this stuff but people have been doing it for years," the former boy-band member said. "With us, of course we want to find a surrogate to have our own kids, but now I was just reading [about] stem cell research...Now they are saying with the skin cells of a male you can actually produce an egg and fertilize so you can have biological kids with two males."

Good luck to these two in starting a family! We have no doubt that Bass and Turchin would have some of the cutest kids ever — although Silas Randall Timberlake will certainly give them a little competition!

Lance Bass and Michael Turchin made history last night as the first same-sex couple to get married on an American TV network, and boy, did they make it count! The Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding special, which aired on E! last night, was filled with memorable moments from the lovable former 'NSYNC-er.

Whether or not you were the boy band's biggest fan, there were a ton of wedding-planning details to enjoy, including their bachelor party. For starters, we got to see everyone in Bass's self-described world of "500 friends and acquaintances." That included watching him celebrate at a pre-wedding bash with friends and family in Mississippi — all of whom were so wonderfully supportive of his marriage — as well as his more high-profile connections. Case in point: He looked to pals like Lisa Vanderpump, Kris Jenner, and former band mates JC Chasez and Joey Fatone for advice.

Another highlight was watching Bass's decision-making process for picking his flower girls. Instead of using the under-ten-years-old set, he naturally gravitated toward using supermodels. Why hasn't anyone thought of this before?! We're only said that one of their four flower girl choices, Kendall Jenner, couldn't make it for the big day.

Throughout their planning, it was clear how well Bass and Turchin work together, even with their disagreements. When Bass wanted to attach real flowers to the flower girl dresses, Turchin gently turned down the idea. We feel like all brides and grooms could take a cue from that kind of conflict resolution.

At the end of it all, we got to see it all come together, including their hilarious and heart-warming ceremony the Park Plaza Hotel. And was it worth the time commitment? You bet!

Lance Bass is all about weddings these days. A newlywed himself, with an E! wedding special called Lance Loves Michael airing on February 5, Bass is also planning to act as an ambassador for a mass LGBT wedding in Fort Lauderdale Beach on the same day his show hits the small screen.

The event appropriately named "Love is Love," hosted by Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, will marry 100 LGBT and straight couples at sunrise. The ceremony will be officiated by Reverend Dr. Durrell Watkins of the Sunshine Cathedral. Couples tying the knot are flying to Florida from all over the world, calling places like London, Italy and South America home.

"Lance shares the same pioneering spirit of advocating for LGBT equality that we embody here in Greater Fort Lauderdale," Nicki Grossman, president and CEO of the Visitors Bureau, said in a statement to NBC 6. "We're thrilled to have him be part of our historic moment on the same day he shares his own personal wedding with the world."

Speaking of Lance Bass and weddings, new details about his own wedding emerged today. Turns out, he's such a romantic, that one of his reception's entrees included a heart-shaped single-serving of lasagna.

Catered by Robert Earl, owner of Bass and Turchin's favorite restaurant Buca di Beppo, the heart-shaped dish was a total surprise to everyone — even the newlyweds themselves! "It was my suggestion to do something romantic for their special day," Earl told People of the entree. "They actually didn't know that we had made the lasagna in the shape of a heart, so I was able to surprise them during the tasting and they absolutely loved it." How sweet!

Former 'NSYNC member Lance Bass is marrying his fiancé Michael Turchin on December 20 after not one, but two proposals! A 90-minute televised E! special dubbed Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding will air on February 5 at 8:00pm ET/PT, but until then, Lance is giving us the inside scoop on his relationship, the big day, and what's in store for the couple's future!

We may have just gotten married on Saturday, but sharing a life with Michael has been something I've thought about for a long time. We definitely have plans to start a family in the near future. One of the things that first attracted me to Michael was his passion for having kids and being a real family man — so confident he's going to be the best dad ever. It makes me really excited to start our own little family. Plus, we have so many friends that are already on their first kids — we've got to start playing catch up!

Growing up, my dad was so much fun and really loved life. He made every holiday memorable for us, so I want to be the kind of dad who does all of that, too. I imagine I'll be the dad that cheeses out with my kids and let's them do whatever they want, but I'm definitely more of the disciplinary one between Michael and I. Michael will let them get away with more. One thing I'm sure of is our kids will have a ton of fun, but we want them to have structure. They'll be good kids, very polite.

In the short-term, we're looking forward to spending time with our families during the holidays, who are coming to celebrate in Los Angeles. Once they head home, Michael and I are planning on snuggling up inside the house for three days to unwind and reminisce about how amazing our wedding day was. It's my idea of the perfect holiday.

Lance Bass is a single man no more! He officially tied the knot with fiancé Michael Turchin yesterday.

The former N'Sync crooner got married during a 15-minute ceremony at the Park Plaza Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. According to Us Weekly, the star-studded event included guests like Kris Jenner and boyfriend Corey Gamble, Cheryl Burke, Carmen Electra, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Lisa Vanderpump, Backstreet Boys member A.J. McLean, and fellow 'NSync band mates Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, and JC Chasez. E! News confirms that Chasez sang with Kristin Chenoweth for Bass and Turchin's first dance as a married couple. The star power didn't stop there — friends Jamie-Lynn Sigler and JoAnna Garcia Swisher officiated the wedding!

Bass revealed to us that his wedding colors would be "colors like dark reds and purples with pops of lime green" which would make for a "very opulent and royal" aesthetic. He also divulged that his niece would be singing 'NSync's hit ballad "This I Promise You" during the reception.

The couple met almost four years ago in Palm Springs at a mutual friend's birthday party and began dating a year later in December 2011. In his guest blog for us just a day before he officially said, "I do", he gushed about his relationship with Turchin. "But what I really love most about Michael is how much love he gives to my friends, my family, and even my dogs. I've always believed you can tell a lot about a person by how they treat your family and your pets, and he's so in love with them all, and they all love him. That's how I knew he had the best heart ever."

The duo got engaged in September of last year, when Bass proposed to Turchin with a black diamond band. Bass and Turchin have been no strangers to showing their love for one another on social media since and, on Friday, Bass posted a picture of the twosome with the caption, "Today I marry the man of my dreams. He makes me smile; he makes my heart melt; he makes me....me. #LanceLovesMichael", using their wedding hashtag.

Their 90-minute wedding special Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding premieres on E! on February 5th at 8pm. It's a landmark event as it is the first time a celebrity wedding between two men is being broadcast on an American television network.

Inside Lance Bass and Michael Turchin's Relationship

Former 'NSYNC member Lance Bass is marrying his fiancé Michael Turchin on December 20 after not one, but two proposals! A 90-minute televised E! special dubbed Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding will air on February 5 at 8:00pm ET/PT, but until then, Lance is giving us the inside scoop on his relationship, the big day, and what's in store for the couple's future!

Michael and I met in Palm Springs almost four years ago at a birthday party, which was strange because we have the exact same friend group but didn't know each other. Right away, I knew I wanted to get to know him. I was very attracted to him and I thought he was sweet, but I just wasn't sure how interested he was in me. It was a situation where I knew right away that I wanted to be friends with him, but I had no idea it would lead to a romantic relationship.

We lead a pretty low-key life. For date nights, we love to just relax with friends, invite people over, and cook a great dinner. But we also love quiet time together watching TV. Seriously, every night we watch TV in pajamas or onsies. Right now we're binge watching Homeland, but we love everything on Netflix, Scandal, and, of course, trashy reality TV on Bravo.

We have a really fun, lighthearted relationship, which I think is key to what makes us work. We're both homebodies, but we like to go out on little adventures. I love to scare Michael. You're probably seen some of my pranks on Instagram, but it's just something that we enjoy doing.

But what I really love most about Michael is how much love he gives to my friends, my family, and even my dogs. I've always believed you can tell a lot about a person by how they treat your family and your pets, and he's so in love with them all, and they all love him. That's how I knew he had the best heart ever.

The first time I proposed to Michael (yes, I did it twice!) it was pretty spur of the moment. We were out to lunch with friends in New Orleans and I looked across the table at him and just knew that I wanted today to be the day.

I ran out and got a ring without him noticing and that night I got down on one knee in the dark in one of my favorite places in Jackson Square. (It was a little awkward because some fans were trying to take photos with me!)

Then, in August, we were in South Africa and I wanted to do something really romantic since we weren't sure if we'd have time for a real honeymoon after the wedding. I got him the ring I had always planned to propose with and asked again. I knew he wanted us both to have matching engagement rings, so I gave him one during our second proposal from David Yurman.

Being engaged has been the best time of our lives. It elevates the relationship and people take it more seriously. Towards the end of the planning process, we were counting down the wedding day. Now we're just so happy to be getting married.

Planning my wedding has been a little stressful, but it's also been really fun. Now, if you ask our planners, they'll probably tell you a different story. Sharon Sacks, who did Kim and Kanye's wedding, is our planner. And though Michael and I are the decision makers, we've also learned to trust Sharon and her amazing team. I've been picky about the entertainment and music, while Michael is more focused on the aesthetics, flowers, and overall vibe, but I'm happy to say neither of us has been a groomzilla.

We're finally tying the knot after dating for four years this Saturday, but here's a sneak peek at what you can expect from our blowout celebration.

The Theme
We've chosen colors like dark reds and purples with pops of lime green — it's going to be very opulent and royal.

The Dress Code
Since we're planning this over-the-top party, we felt like a dress code would be a fun way to bring the event to the next level — but in the best way possible. We've asked everyone to come dressed for a royal wedding meets the Met Ball, so I'm expecting some crazy high fashion. I want our guests to look back at photos from our wedding and think, "That's the best I've ever looked in my entire life."

The Ceremony
Our three dogs will be escorted down the aisle by three close friends, and our two nephews are our ring bearers.

Michael's sister helped us design our second rings, and we created them to complement our engagement rings. As for the rest of our look, we're both wearing tuxes for the ceremony and changing into Gatsby-esque velvet tuxedo jackets designed by our friend Jeff Kim for the reception.

The Guests
We originally had 700 (yes, 700) people on our list, so we knew he had to cut back. We ended up inviting around 350 people — it's still a huge number, but much more manageable.

The Entertainment
There were so many artists we wanted to be part of our big day, but when you're getting married around Christmas, you have to assume that some peope will be out of town. Originally we asked Marc Broussard and Jordin Sparks to perform, but they're not able to anymore. I'm most excited about our first dance — I'm keeping the performer a secret, but I will say it's one of our favorite songs by one of our favorite artists. I will reveal one performance: My little niece is singing "This I Promise You," which is fitting since it's an 'NSYNC song but also perfect for a wedding.

And About the 'NSYNC Guys ...
All the guys, except for Justin, will be at the wedding. Unfortunately, Justin is on tour so he's not able to attend.

And, in case you're wondering, I wouldn't take marriage advice from any of those guys! Just kidding! But I do think it's going to be very easy for Michael and I to adjust to married life since it already feels like we've been married for years.

Stay tuned for more of Lance's wedding-planning chronicles!

Chris Kirkpatrick Married N'Sync Members Groomsmen

Former N'Sync member Chris Kirkpatrick married girlfriend of a little more than three years, Karly Skladany, this past weekend at Loews Hotel in Orlando, Florida.

The boy band alum's big day wasn't without a few special guests. All four former N'Sync members—that's Justin Timberlake, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, and J.C. Chasez—were not only in attendance, but served as groomsmen! This was the first time the gang assembled since the group's highly anticipated reunion at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards this past August.

It sounds like Kirkpatrick's big day was decidedly low-key, a stark contrast to Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's Italian celebration as well as Lance Bass's future nuptials, which may be televised! Bass commented on his Oct. 29th Dirty Pop Sirius XM radio show that Kirkpatrick is notoriously adverse to "the finer things" in life. "What's really hilarious to me is that we went to get fitted for our tuxes at Men's Warehouse—and he got us the cheapest tuxes there he could possibly get," said Bass during his show. "I mean that's just who he is." He continued to joke: "I think it's hilarious to know that Justin Timberlake is going to be in a Men's Warehouse tux ushering the wedding."

Personally, we love that Kirkpatrick didn't throw an outlandish blowout and chose more affordable attire for his "Bye Bye Bye" buddies. Most importantly, Kirkpatrick seemed to have the time of his life at his wedding. The singer even shared his post-wedding elation via Twitter:

We're excited for the happy couple, and overjoyed that his boy band buddies were standing by his side!
