Exclusive: Lance Gross Talks Fatherhood, Is He Expecting A Boy?

Published

Lance Gross is engaged and expecting a baby — to say he’s on cloud nine is an understatement!

HipHollywood caught up with the hunky actor/photographer during his first photo exhibit titled, Grey Scale. While speaking about the exhibit being a dream come true, Gross opened up about another dream, fatherhood.

“I’m just happy about having a baby and bringing a new child into this world to raise,” Lance stated, “I’m just ready to be my child’s best friend.” The Crisis star was excited to share this news with the world, but when we asked if Lance Jr. was on the way he got a little coy, “well, we’re keeping the sex a secret.”

Hmmm, well he might have let the secret slip at the end of our interview. Take a listen below, we’re pretty sure he says, “my parents are my heroes so I want my child to be able to say that about myself and HIS, their mother.”

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
