Last November, Million Dollar Listing: New York‘s Fredrik Eklund and his husband Derek Kaplan welcomed their twins Milla and Fredrik Jr into the world via surrogate. Today, they are revealing to People magazine that Fredrik is the biological father of Milla whereas Derek is the father of Fredrik Jr.
Speaking about life with the tots, the real estate agent told People magazine: ‘They’re sleeping well, but sometimes I think those two have a little side meeting. They’ll decide, “Okay, today you’re going to be bad and then when you fall asleep, I’m going to be bad.” They’re in cahoots!
‘Twins are double the work, but definitely double the joy! I read all the baby books, started changing diapers on dolls, I even went to Twiniversity. It’s like going to college to learn about having twins.’
Frederik spoke openly on the show about the pain of losing two sets of twins to miscarriage and how, after the second setback, announced he didn’t want to do it again, saying he ‘cried so much he can’t cry any more’.
However, during season six of the hit bravo show, the 40-year-old announced they were expecting twins again, thanks to an egg donor and a new surrogate.
‘I felt like I’ve been running this marathon for 40 years and I finally reached the goal. We’re finally going to be daddies. Finally,’ he said.
He told People: ‘This was a long time in the making. So many years and so many difficulties getting here. It’s more than I could have ever wanted.’

We’re so in love with them. There really are no words. I still cry often… just looking at them, feeding them, kissing them. They’re so perfect, they really are everything. I still can’t believe it.
