Tan France has had a baby name picked out since he was a teenager.

The ‘Queer Eye’ star is currently expecting his first child via surrogate with his husband Rob, and has said he already knows what he wants to name his future son because he’s had the name picked out since he was “16 or 17”.

He said: "I've always known," he explained. "When I met my husband on one of the very first dates, I said, 'Do you want kids?' And he was like 'Yeah one day I do' ... And I was like, 'I also know what I want to call my children.' ”

Tan said he ran his moniker choices passed Rob, and was thrilled when he “liked the names”.

He added: “[I know that sounds] terrifying, but I just needed to know if [Rob] liked these names. And he did, so I was like 'Okay, that's what our first child is going to be called.’ ”

The 38-year-old television star didn’t reveal what his baby’s name will be, but insisted it will be a South Asian moniker after his own descent.

He teased: "You can take the boy out of Pakistan, but you can't take Pakistan out of this boy.”

Tan also joked that he and Rob might not be prepared for their baby boy, as they haven’t started planning for his arrival even though he’s just weeks away from being born.

He explained: "My husband and I are not romantic, we haven't created a nursery yet even though he's due so soon. We can raise a baby in any room, we don't need any fanciness. We're going to handle it when he shows up."

And the ‘Next in Fashion’ co-host can’t wait to introduce his son to food from his culture just as soon as he’s old enough to eat it.

Asked during an appearance on ‘A Little Late with Lilly Singh’ what he wants to teach his son, he said: "First off, our food, the first food, other than milk, that my son will taste will be Indian food, that's my food.”
