Jeff Lewis expecting baby girl with boyfriend Gage Edward

TV’s Flipping Out’s Jeff Lewis is expecting a baby girl via surrogate with his boyfriend and business manager, Gage Edward.

Reality TV star Lewis told People magazine that they were ‘excited’ and ‘terrified’ about the arrival of their daughter come fall.

The pair turned to a surrogate after four years of failed adoption attempts. In an interview with TV Guide last year, Lewis told of his nerve-wracking first meeting with the surrogate, which he said ‘felt like a date, but also a job interview’. In particular, he said he was worried that the surrogate would ‘Google scenes from the show and not want to work with us’.

Approaches to fatherhood

Now that they are officially expecting, Lewis told People: ‘I can’t tell you how grateful and appreciative we are.’

But he also admitted that he and Edward are already taking very different approaches to fatherhood; while his boyfriend has his head buried in parenting and baby books, Lewis said he would ‘probably just wing it’.

In December, Lewis shared a ‘Happy Holidays’ card on Instagram that showed six embryos that had successfully been conceived.

Lewis, an interior designer and house flipper, told People that he was already designing the look and feel of the baby’s room, which would be ‘soft, soothing, calm’ to counter the couple’s daily dramas.

The pair’s journey to parenthood will be documented on season nine of Flipping Out, which returns to Bravo in the US this summer. Their baby daughter is due in October.
