Lance Bass is ready to become a father.

The former 'NSYNC member and his husband, Michael Turchin, have been talking about parenthood for some time, but it sounds like the happy couple are now preparing to take the next steps.

Sitting down with Matthew Cole Weiss on the Allegedly podcast, released on Tuesday, the 37-year-old singer admitted, "There's never a time to really plan to have a kid… you just gotta jump in."

"Plan it, of course, but there’s no perfect time to do it," Bass added.

Bass, who is set to host the first mainstream gay dating show, Finding Prince Charming, in September, explained that he kept rationalizing reasons to put off fatherhood.

"I kept telling myself over the past few years, 'Well, I want to make sure, you know, if this show gets picked up, then I know I’ll be in L.A. for the next five years, so then that’ll be the time,'" Bass shared

The singer went on to explain that all his friends are having kids and that he wants his child to be able to grow up with theirs. "So I imagine we would probably start the process early next year," he said.

And Bass has already done his homework when it comes to what "the process" actually is: "“There’s an amazing company that a lot of people have been using… They set you up with a surrogate, and there's all different ways of doing it."

Bass said that there are "surrogates that you never have to meet," but that isn't the route he and Turchin are interested in taking.

"I want [the surrogate] in my life," he said. "I want to know who’s donating the egg."

Bass is excited about the prospect of being a father, and he's equally thrilled about sharing the experience with the love of his life.

"I'm excited because I know Michael will be the best dad ever. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to marry him," Bass recounted. "So I'm excited to start this family, because I think all of us selfishly want to try to raise the best kid possible, just so we can have a better person in this world, helping out."

"And so I hope to raise some good kids that will leave a good mark on this world," he added.
