Four months after their wedding, home design guru and TV personality Nate Berkus and his new husband Jeremiah Brent announced Wednesday (24 September) that they are going to become parents.
‘We have had the most special year and its JUST become even more beautiful. We are happy to announce that we are expecting our first child!’ the couple stated on Berkus’s Facebook page.
They added: ‘While we can’t share much, we can say that thanks to a surrogate and the support of those we love we will officially be a family in the spring of 2015!’
The couple made a little bit of history in May when they became the first same-sex couple to be married at the New York Public Library. Among the guests was Berkus’s television mentor Oprah Winfrey.
Berkus, 43, gained fame as a frequent guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show then went on to host his own syndicated daytime talk show for two years.
Brent, 29, appeared on the Bravo television series The Rachel Zoe Project.
