Congratulations are in order for one of the stars of Netflix’s “Queer Eye”: Tan France and his husband Rob France are expecting their first child! The fashion savant of the Fab Five actually took off some clothing to make the announcement on Instagram where he posted a photo of himself standing shirtless and cupping his “belly,” over which a sonogram image had been placed.
“So happy to finally share that WE’RE HAVING A BABY!!” the British-born Netflix star wrote in the caption. “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.”
Tan France went on to gush that he and his husband, Rob France, have wanted to become parents for many years.
“Our hearts are so full right now,” the caption concluded. “I cannot wait to hold this baby, and to show him so much love.”
Arguably the sweetest member of the “Queer Eye” Fab Five, Tan France is known to be compassionate, thoughtful and patient. He’s the calm and measured complement to Jonathan’s exuberance, Bobby’s practicality, Karamo’s passion and Antoni’s … whatever Antoni’s thing is.
Tan has a big role in “Queer Eye,” as his fashion expertise is one of the most tangible and significant aspects of each subject’s makeover. Whenever it’s Tan’s turn to work with the subject in an episode, we all know that we’re in for a parade of cute, flattering outfits — plus some gentle counseling from Tan on how the person should love their body and stop hiding in clothing that doesn’t suit them.
Tan has a unique ability to guide his “Queer Eye” subjects toward wearing clothes that feel good and boost their confidence without shaming them for their past fashion choices. His contributions are often among the most tender and uplifting parts of each episode.
If you cannot get enough of the charming Tan France in your life, then you must head over to his YouTube channel where you’ll find a variety of videos and segments featuring everyone’s favorite gay British fashion expert. The Netflix-produced “Dressing Funny” videos have him getting together with some of comedy’s heavy-hitters (Tiffany Haddish, Nick Kroll, Ali Wong and more) to dole out fashion advice (and sometimes fashion tough love).
For those who love Tan France and Tina Fey and Rachel Dratch, this YouTube video is for you:
And if you’ve ever wished that you yourself could be the recipient of France’s loving fashion guidance, you’ll want to check out his Masterclass on “Style for Everyone.” Along with tips on creating a capsule wardrobe, the instruction also apparently includes some of Tan’s classic warm-hearted quips about fashion do’s and don’ts.
“American men: Plaid is not your only option for a print,” France deadpans in the Masterclass promo video. “Move on.”

Of course, Tan’s lesson plan will almost certainly include instruction on the “French tuck” — the style of wearing the front part of your shirt tucked into the waistband of your pants or skirt, and leaving the back of the shirt untucked.
Tan’s love for the French tuck is so widely known, there is actual video footage of Brie Larson telling Oprah Winfrey about it. Tan posted the video to his Twitter feed with the words, “STILL DEAD. CALL FOR HELP.”
