The five members of NSYNC have moved well beyond their boy band days tainted by mogul Lou Pearlman, many of them forming solo careers and landing prominent acting gigs. Each of the band members today has found love, and three of them are married.

Pearlman was convicted of fraud for swindling millions of dollars from thousands of investors, many of whom were retirees living in Florida, according to court documents filed in his case. Pearlman died in federal prison at the age of 62.

The story of the fraud aired in a two-hour special of 20/20 Friday, December 13, 2019 in its episode, “The Hitman: From Pop to Prison.” The episode is airing again tonight, Friday July 3, 2020, at 9 p.m. on ABC.

Lance Bass Is Married & Is Trying to Start a Family With His Husband, Michael Turchin

Lance Bass and his husband, Michael Turchin, are persevering at their dream to start a family after several failed attempts, the most recent of those announced in March, 2020. Bass told E! News in August 2019 they are hopeful to have twins. At the time, they were on their seventh egg donor and optimistic about a pregnancy.

“We’re getting close” he said on the show. “I know we keep saying this every time I come on your show….It’s been a process. You know, we went through seven donors, but this seventh one looks like it worked! So, hopefully in the next few weeks I’ll be able to announce some nice celebration. They will be here next–I say ‘they’ because, of course, we’re trying to go for twins, but that’s, you know, still up in the air. But yeah, so next year, 2020 babies!”

Now, Bass and Turchin are dealing with the loss of their surrogate mother’s 8-week pregnancy. They were planning for a baby boy. Bass and his husband announced in March, 2020, the surrogate mother lost the baby several months earlier.

“We unfortunately lost him after eight weeks, which happens to pretty much everyone when you’re going through IVF. I didn’t even know that as we were going through this, but we’ve met so many great couples who have the same story,” Bass told ET. “So, you do feel a lot of support knowing other people have gone through it.”

He told E! News he can’t wait to be a father and that Turchin “is going to be the best dad.”

“I’ve been ready, are you kidding me?” Bass said of bringing children into his home. “It’s been delayed so much. Like, I’m just kind of like itching to be a dad. You know, I’m 40 now. So, I mean, it’s time. I’ve been waiting for this.”

The IVF and surrogate process can be painstaking, Bass said, but called it “a beautiful gift.”

“It’s quite the process” he said. “We had no idea what we were getting into. But it’s a beautiful experience. The love that is surrounded with IVF—from the doctors to the surrogate—it’s a beautiful gift.”

Justin Timberlake Had a Successful Solo & Acting Career, & Married Jessica Biel in 2012

Justin Timberlake became one of the most recognizable faces of NSYNC when he launched his solo career in 2002. His first solo album, Justified, featured hits “Rock Your Body” and “Cry Me a River.” It sold 7 million copies worldwide, according to Biography. He launched his acting career in 2006, but finally made his name on the big screen in 2010 with “The Social Network.” He went onto star in “Bad Teacher” with Cameron Diaz, “Friends With Benefits” with Mila Kunis and “In Time” with Amanda Seyfried in 2011. Most recently, Timberlake starred in the “Trolls” movies with Anna Kendrick.

Timberlake married Jessica Biel in 2012, and they welcomed their son into the family in 2015. Today, Silas Randall Timberlake is 5 years old. His famous parents keep him out of the public eye as much as possible. Timberlake sometimes shares photos of his son on Instagram, but he usually keeps his face hidden.

He shared a photo of himself with Silas on Father’s Day, 2020. He said he teaches his son about racial equality, and encouraged other dads to do the same.

He wrote:

Boys grow up to be fathers. I think about that a lot these days. We try to teach our son to love and to respect everyone — we teach him that all people are all created equal, and that no one should be treated differently because of the color of their skin. We teach him this because one day, he will go on to teach his kids the same. It’s a cycle. And right now, as we all work to undo generations of discrimination that have plagued our system and our communities across this country… I’m reminded today that the first lessons start at home. Im grateful for both of my dads and my mother for teaching me those lessons from the beginning. And for listening to me when I had something to say that they hadn’t learned. I pray for that humility with my own son. I’m grateful for my wife, who made me a father, and is my favorite person/partner/teacher/friend in all of it. I’m grateful for my son, who is always ALWAYS teaching me right back. ⠀

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there. While we owe our sons and daughters these lessons in the places where the doors close at night, I hope you are as inspired as I am to make them THE TRUTH in the places that same door opens every morning and we send them out to discover. There’s more to do. And we are built for it. After all, we are the Dads. Sending my love to you and yours.
