Fredrik Eklund's Baby Journey

Few men make fatherhood look as good as Fredrik Eklund. The Million Dollar Listing New York agent has been posting the most angelic pics of his little ones since he and husband Derek Kaplan welcomed them into the world in November.

So have any of Fredrik's fellow MDLNY agents caught the baby bug? The Daily Dish asked Ryan Serhant, who is a year-and-a-half into his marriage to longtime love Emilia Bechrakis, just that when we caught up with him earlier this month. "Seeing how stressed out and overwhelmed [Fredrik] is with those babies now, I don't know. Well, maybe soon, when we're ready," he said. "We've just been so busy, and to be honest, we definitely want to. It just hasn't, like, when it's time, it's time."

This new year’s eve is all about the kids 🤣

Welcoming twins is definitely one of the biggest changes that has come to Fredrik's life since Ryan has known his fellow MDLNY agent over the years. "He's definitely calmer," Ryan pointed out when asked if fatherhood has changed Fredrik at all. "But that might just be how tired he is, because he doesn't have just one baby; he's got two babies that sleep at different times. So that's definitely tough on him."

Steve Gold echoed Ryan's sentiment when asked if he's noticed anything different about Fredrik since he became a dad. But to him, Fredrik is just the same old Freddy. "You know, not really. He's now devoted to his kids, but who wouldn't be when you just had two newborns?" Steve recently told The Daily Dish. "He's really into that new phase of his life, and I'm super supportive of him because to me, he's still Freddy. He just has two sweet kids."
