You think you know everything there is to know about Fredrik Eklund, huh? Well think again!
The Million Dollar Listing New York star headed to Instagram where he revealed four fun (and rather unexpected) facts about himself. And not only are they revealing—they are also kind of adorable!
1. It seems like Fredrik was a bit of an attention-seeker as a kid. "I escaped Kindergarten as a little boy and hid in the forrest in an attempt to get a police helicopter come find me, but I was unsuccessful, got hungry, missed my parents so much and walked all the way home, all muddy," he shares.
2. It appears that Fredrik's love for dogs stems back to his youth when he took up an unexpected hobby. He writes, "In my early teens I worked at a dog hotel and didn't speak to hardly any humans for an entire summer, and wrote a journal trying to decode the dogs' language."
3. He also has love for a certain animated rat. "My favorite animated movie is Ratatouille," he reveals. "But The Little Mermaid is a close second."
4. And, finally, he enjoys the great outdoors. "Fly-fishing is my favorite of all hobbies, long lost now since I live in NYC," he says. "But I often dream, and remember, like Hemingway, standing in the midst of the river all alone with Mother Nature, casting the line like a lasso."
Fredrik has been showing fans many of sides of himself on social media as of late. And one of those sides includes his foray into the art world. Turns out hubby Derek is not the only artist in the family. And we have to say, if this is only Fredrik's second large-scale painting, we're already impressed!
