The 37-year-old former Nsync singer wed painter Michael in December, 2014, and became the first same-sex couple to exchange vows on cable television when their nuptials were televised on E!'s Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding.

Almost two years after his wedding, Lance has now set his sights on becoming a father.

"We’re definitely going to have our own children," Lance told Billboard.com. "We’re going to start that in the next couple of years, which I’m very excited about.”

He previously told NBC Out that he and Michael wanted to wait until they were married to start a family, and are also keen to ensure their lives are as stable as possible before welcoming a child into the world.

Lance was speaking to Billboard as he attended the fourth day of the Democratic National Convention on Thursday (28Jul16), with the occasion also marking the 16th anniversary of his first number one with NSYNC's It's Gonna Be Me, as well as the anniversary of his relationship with Michael.

Despite attending the DNC, Lance insisted he is not backing either the Democratic or Republican party, stating: "I’m not a Democrat, I’m not a Republican, I have no affiliation to any party. I just have my common sense."

However, Lance does have some hopes for whoever is voted into the White House in November (16) - namely that they can start changing the landscape for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

"One thing we could actually do is let gay guys donate blood. That would be an equal thing to do,” he said. "It’s those kinds of inequalities we have to keep fighting."

The laws in America currently prevent any gay man from giving blood for a year after their last sexual encounter, in a bid to reduce the risk of transmitting HIV.
