Fredrik Eklund (and His Adorable Twins) Finds a New Way to Expand His Brand
Go inside the home the MDLNY agent shares with his twins and husband Derek Kaplan.
Fredrik Eklund loves real estate and he loves to be a dada, so the Million Dollar Listing New York agent is combining those passions with his new project, the online kids' show Milla and Freddy's Adventures, named after his twin daughter and son. In the series, he teaches his children some important lessons — and gives fans a peek inside the Bel-Air home he shares with the tots and husband Derek Kaplan.
“During the lockdown when schools shut I realized I would have to homeschool my kids like all the other parents. At the same time, I was watching a lot of YouTube with the kids to teach them ABC, colors, and rhymes. I picked what my kids were watching, of course, and sat through each of the shows which accumulated to a lot of hours like most parents — but I realized quickly I could make my own version, from my unique perspective, my own kids show, but for all ages. Having access to the most expensive real estate in the world, and introducing my kids to different topics each week like ABCs, Emotions, Numbers, Painting, Sharing, Giving Back, etc — with a new multimillion-dollar mansion as the backdrop for every episode seen from two young children’s perspective," he told The Daily Dish in a statement.
"I made a decision then and there to create a new fun show for parents watching with their kids and for fans of Million Dollar Listing but perhaps, and most importantly, fun for me to create and have quality time with my kids. I’ve filmed a lot and we have many episodes in the works," he added.
Fredrik has, unsurprisingly, some lofty goals for the show as new episodes roll out on YouTube weekly. His statement continued: "We will film all over the country and even abroad. And I will have some surprise and celebrity guests along the way. I’m excited to let the world into the little warm bubble of love I have with my kids and show Milla and Freddy what Dada does for work: show the most beautiful properties in the world while having fun.”
Fredrik also celebrated the venture with his co-stars, er, we mean kids.
