Derek Kaplan displayed an ultrasound with images of “Baby A” and also a “Baby B.” Fredrik burst into tears with joy and yelled, ‘We’re finally going to be daddies. Finally.’
In May, Fredrik had revealed that they were once again trying to start a family and thus, the moment has come now.
Fredrik and Derek had their wedding in 2013, and it has been a long journey for Fredrik and Derek, as they had experienced multiple miscarriages in the past, but now they are looking forward to new additions to the family. In 2015, the couple’s surrogate miscarried twins followed by another surrogate who lost her pregnancy.
The couples are looking forward to fatherhood, and they are receiving many congratulations from their buddies and fans. Fredrik’s Bravo buddy “Ryan Serhant” took social media to share his good wishes for the couple on his Instagram:

Emilia and I are so happy for you and Derek. You will be incredible fathers 🙏 Steve – You're a beast and you belong on this show with us and the world knows that now! Looking forward to doing a deal with you next year (I owe you a big one…) 😬And LUIS! My boy! I miss you! Loved seeing you again in person and loved re-watching us tonight. You have a passion for life that I will forever envy. And you're still on your journey! And if the journey didn't have ups and downs, it wouldn't be fun! How awful would a roller coaster be if it just went up? 🤔 Emilia, my love, thank you for trusting me and staying by my side on OUR own roller coaster. I know it's insane sometimes, and really fast with lots of twists and turns, but that's what seat belts are for 😘 To our fearless producers Danielle and Nick, we wouldn't be here without you (or the crew!)

According to The Daily Dish, Derek is also a dad to his son, Kai who lives with his moms in London. As learned on MDLNY, Derek became a dad to Kai after he donated his sperm to a lesbian couple who he met in London about seven years ago.
Derek balances his life in New York City with his role as a dad to his young son, Kai. Derek and Fredrik both enjoy their time with Kai and have a great attachment to him. There are many tweets regarding Kai on Fredrik Twitter where they enjoyed having Kai in their life:
Look who came to visit us!? Derek's beautiful son, Kai! 😍😍😍 https://t.co/XqQrCkKwss

Fredrik who is a reality TV personality, a novelist and a New York City real estate broker, has a net worth of $30 million. Similarly, Derek is an artist and has a net worth of $1 million. The couple will exhibit an excellent fatherhood to their upcoming expected twins.
Apart from past miscarriage, we pray they will give birth to the healthy twins this year.
