Lance Bass is now the proud father of twins. 

The former member of the boy band Nsync and his husband, Michael Turchin, recently took to Instagram to announce the birth of their son and daughter. 

The happy couple named their twins Violet and Alexander. 

"The baby dragons have arrived! I cannot express how much love I feel right now. Thank you for all the kind wishes. It meant a lot. Now, how do you change a diaper?" Lance wrote, captioning images of his twins' birth certificates. 

The new dad also shared an adorable image of the new arrivals.

Turchin also took to social media to share his joy. 

"Introducing the newest members of the Turchin-Bass household: Violet Betty and Alexander James! They're pure perfection, and yes, that includes the dozens of poops we've already dealt with. Our hearts are full! Thank you, everyone, for the well wishes," he said. 

Bass and Turchin have been married since 2014 and first announced they were expecting via IVF this past June. 

Fellow twin dad and actor Jerry O'Connell joined the long list of well-wishers who congratulated the couple, telling Lance that he's going to "be a great dad" and jokingly added that sleep for the news dad is now a thing of the past.
