Celebrity interior designer Nate Berkus and husband Jeremiah Brent became parents with the birth of their daughter this week via surrogate.
Berkus, who gained fame through regular appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, made the announcement in a Facebook post: ‘Jeremiah & I are thrilled to announce the arrival of our daughter, Poppy Brent-Berkus, born via surrogate on March 23, 2015. We are so excited to finally be a family of 3!
He added: ‘As anyone with a newborn knows, we have our work cut out for us but couldn’t be happier to be embarking on this life changing journey that is parenthood. Thank you all for your well wishes and support.’
The couple made a little bit of history last 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 Winfrey.
Berkus, 43, hosted his own syndicated daytime talk show for two years. Brent, 29, appeared on the Bravo television series The Rachel Zoe Project.
