Absolutely tragic news for Million Dollar Listing New York's Fredrik Eklund and husband Derek Kaplan. After announcing in April that they were expecting a daughter via surrogacy, Fredrik now reveals that their surrogate was actually carrying twins but recently suffered miscarriage.
"I'm sad to share we've had a failed pregnancy. I have cried so much that I can't cry anymore. We were pregnant with twins but we're not anymore,” he writes on Instagram. “The last couple of days I couldn't take it anymore, to upkeep this perception of happiness and success when I've been a total sad mess inside. I've felt like a failure and that I'll never get to where I want to go: for me and Derek to finally become parents.” Fans saw Fredrik and Derek's journey towards becoming fathers on MDLNY Season 4, including Fredrik affectionately naming their future child Milla.
But he also expressed resilience. Fredrik is adamant that he and Derek won’t abandon their dream of expanding their family. “We will try again. We have to,” he writes. “I'm not giving up. We're just not going to give up! We have to go on and simply try again.”
