Lance Bass Reveals He 'Started the Process' to Have Kids -- Find Out Why He's 'Freaked Out' (Exclusive)

Lance Bass' road to fatherhood just got a little bit shorter!

ET's Lauren Zima spoke with the former *NSYNC member at the 25th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on Friday, where he opened up about his plans to expand his family -- and revealed that he and husband Michael Turchin "started the process" last week. 

"It's something we're very excited about. I mean, the reason I wanted to get married to this guy is I know he'll be an amazing dad," he gushed of Turchin, whom he married in 2014. "We've been putting it off for a long time, but this is the year that we're actually starting the process." 

"Just last week, [we] really started the process. So we're excited, and it's going a lot faster than we ever thought, which is kind of freaking me out," he confessed.

The 37-year-old singer has been talking about having kids for a couple years now, so what's got him so anxious? 

"I thought we had a good, like, year to really choose things, but it's happening so fast. I mean, we've met with surrogates, we're looking at eggs, we now have the person representing us, and contracts are being made, and it's such a process that we had no idea existed," he explained. "But it's also fascinating too. It's already amazing."

When it comes to advice on parenthood, Bass has few good friends to choose from. Fellow *NSYNC members Justin Timberlake, Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone all have kids. The former bandmates are set to reunite for *NSYNC's Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony on April 30. 

"Everyone will be there. We don't do anything *NSYNC unless it's all five, which is very rare these days. The last time we were all five together was JC [Chasez's] 40th birthday, which was a couple years ago. It's really hard to get us all five together," Bass admitted. "[But] we're excited. We planned this whole ceremony around [Timberlake's] tour coming to LA." 

Ellen DeGeneres and Carson Daly will be presenting the boy band with their star on the Walk of Fame, which Bass said he still can't believe is happening. "We're always joking around, so this is just one of those weird events that we're like, 'Really? How did we get here? This is so weird.' Our whole career, we felt like we didn't deserve anything. And we're pretty much feeling that with this star too," he shared. 

Regardless, the group couldn't be more excited for the honor -- and planned a special pop-up shop for their fans to celebrate. The Dirty Pop-Up will be coming to LA from April 28 to May 1 with special merchandise and photo activations to celebrate 20 years of *NSYNC. 

"The fans are who gave us the star. They're the ones who wrote the people and raised the money... We wanted to do something a little more special than just showing up at the ceremony, so we've created a nice *NSYNC experience," Bass expressed. "We're building it now, so I have no idea what it's going to look like. But it'll be really fun, installation pieces that you can have a lot of great Instagram pictures with."

For now, Bass couldn't be more proud to support Race to Erase MS, telling ET why he's returned year after year to the gala. "It's important to me because it's a disease that we still have so far to go with, and as promising as every month goes, and you get these great breakthroughs, we still have a lot of work to do," he said. "And if it wasn't for Nancy [Davis] and this amazing organization, we wouldn't be as far as we are."
