Tan France From Queer Eyes Expecting Baby Via Surrogacy
Queer Eye’s Tan France and his husband Rob have revealed they’re expecting their first child together via surrogate.
Sharing the news on Instagram, France wrote:
So happy to finally share that we’re having a baby! No, I’m not pregnant, despite this VERY realistic pic. 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. Something we’ve wanted for soooo many years. Our hearts are so full right now. I cannot wait to hold this baby, and to show him so much love.
The announcement was met with lots of joy. Co-star Antoni Porowski from Queer Eye wrote: “Now I know what it’s like to cry tears of joy and be turned on simultaneously thank you and congrats boys!!!!”

While Jonathon Van Ness commented: “So happy for you!!! I’m so proud of you and Rob you are two of the sweetest most genuine people in the world and this is the most exciting news ever.”
Their Queer Eye co-star, Karamo Brown, added: “Yay!!!!!!! Uncle Momo is going to spoil this baby!!!!!” with a series of heart emojis.
Taking a different approach, Bobby Berk, the show’s interior designer, wrote: “Hahahaha. The joy of this post outshines the creepiness of this pic.”
France, who is a member of the Fab Five in the critically-acclaimed Netflix reboot of Queer Eye, married illustrator Rob in 2007.
Rob also shared the news on his Instagram.
Alongside a drawing of a baby, he wrote: “We have a beautiful little angel on the way and I didn’t think it was humanly possible to feel like this.”
The fashion designer has spoken at length about his upbringing in Doncaster as an openly gay Muslim man.
In his 2019 memoir, he recalled the racism he faced growing up, and the difficulties of being accepted as a gay Muslim.
France will be reunited on-screen with the rest of the Fab Five in the near future after Queer Eye was renewed by Netflix for another series.
