Fredrik Eklund and Derek Kaplan Are Having a Baby!
Get the details on the 'MDLNY' agent and his husband's first child through surrogacy.
High kicks are in order!
Fredrik Eklund and his husband Derek Kaplan are making the leap into parenthood: the Million Dollar Listing New York agent and his husband are expecting a baby girl, Fredrik tells People. "It's been the goal for the majority of my adult life," Fredrik says, adding that the daughter is arriving via a surrogate "very soon."
The couple, who married in 2013, are already well prepared for the arrival: they've picked out a name for their girl. "I've always known that I would have a daughter and her name would be Milla," Fredrik says. "I have butterflies, I can't think, I can't sleep. I'm just so in love with her."
Last year, Fredrik shared the news that he and Derek were actively looking to start their family. And he teased his daughter's name at the time, too.
"We have so much to celebrate, and yes, we are going to have kids and we are moving forward (!!!) and with that said we need to capture some last romantic getaways for just two," he said. "I'm so glad I gave it some time, waiting isn't my strong side, but we are now both ready. Anyway, we are sending you much love from paradise... #Milla"
Send your congrats to the happy couple—and tune into the MDLNY premiere tonight at 10/9c.
