Million Dollar Listing New York agent, Fredrik Eklund and his husband Derek Kaplan, welcomed twins, via surrogate, on Tuesday.
Fredrik shared the happy news on Instagram. “Happiest moment of my life. Welcome Fredrick and Milla to the world,” Fredrik captioned a photo of himself and his husband holding their newborn babies.
The road to fatherhood has been a difficult one for Fredrik who’s detailed his journey to parenthood on MDLNY. Over the years fans have witnessed Fredrik have candid conversations with Derek about wanting to become a father, their struggle to find an egg donor and surrogate, and their two devastating miscarriages.
However, on the season 6 finale of MDLNY, Fredrik announced the happy news that he and Derek were expecting twins.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen to me when I hold them finally,” Fredrik told The Daily Dish back in August. “I don’t even know what’s going to happen to me. I can’t even grasp. For us, since we’re two men, and we have this wonderful surrogate and we have so many people that love in our family, but it’s been a little bit abstract at times. So, for us, when we hold them, I think everything’s going to change again.”
I’ve only watched MDLNY here and there but I’ve seen a few episodes about Fredrik and Derek’s struggle to have a child so I’m super happy for them. I think these babies are super lucky and will have a wonderful life full of love. Congrats to Fredrik and Derek!
