How to Watch

Catch up on Million Dollar Listing New York on Peacock or the Bravo App.

On January 1, Fredrik commemorated the beginning of the new year by opening up about why he decided to quit drinking. “I’ve given up alcohol and though it’s still pretty early I wanted to share with you how I feel about it. It was simply time to stop, actually overdue, and if you know me well you know it’s been the one and only thing that’s given me extra weight as a father, business man and health-nut for way too long,” he captioned several photos of him with his daughter, Milla.

The dad of two went on to confirm that he’s been sober for several weeks. “Today I have 77 days sober and couldn’t be more grateful to the people who influenced me to get here. Really,” he wrote, also adding,” Its true what they say: it’s not easy but totally worth it. “

Fredrik concluded his message by sharing his gratitude for his newfound sobriety. “I’m not going to oversell you on it but it is night and day. This morning I started 2021 in the most beautiful sunrise with a clear mind and body. And hopefully every morning for the rest of my life, a life that’s more rewarding without it,” he wrote.

Fredrik’s message was met with a flood of encouraging comments, including one from his husband Derek Kaplan, who wrote, “With you all the way.”

Several Bravolebs also chimed in to share their support. “Beautiful photos. I’m very happy for you. Welcome to this side — I think you’ll be happy here,” Vanderpump RulesLala Kent commented while The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Braunwyn Windham-Burke responded with several heart emojis.
