Jeff Lewis and longtime love, Gage Edward, are officially parents. The Flipping Out couple welcomed a daughter, Monroe Christine Lewis, via surrogate, on October 25, The Daily Dish confirmed. Little Monroe weighed in at 7lbs., 15 oz. Jeff shared a first photo of his little girl on Instagram following her arrival. "At 4:22pm today, I grew up. Welcome Monroe Christine Lewis," he shared in the caption.
The couple revealed they were becoming parents back in May.The couple had long wanted to add kids to their clan. After their attempts to adopt went unsuccessful, they opted for surrogacy. “This has been a three or four year process for us,” Jeff told PEOPLE earlier this year. “There were so many obstacles along the way, but there’s a happy ending. I can’t tell you how grateful and appreciative we are.”
And Jeff and Gage let fans into their journey to fatherhood on Flipping Out last season, taking fans inside doctor's appointments as they prepped to welcome Monroe into their family.
In the days leading up to the baby's birth, the interior designer gave fans a preview of where their baby girl would be sleeping. And, yes, the baby's nursery was ultra sophisticated.
And you can bet right up until the baby's arrival Jeff showed off his signature sense of humor about becoming a dad.
