Fredrik Eklund Opened Up About Having Children in 2018
Eklund shared his thoughts regarding parenthood in a 2018 interview with The Daily Dish. The reality television star shared that raising two babies at one time proved to be difficult. He explained that he felt “overwhelmed” taking care of children while juggling his career.
“I think that work-home-life-baby balance is something that’s gonna take a long time for me,” said Eklund. “People that know me and love me and my family, they knew this was going to happen. I welcomed it, but it’s much more difficult than I imagined because I value my career, I value my clients, my team, and I worked a lifetime to get here.”
He clarified that he believes his children “are so beautiful and so perfect.”
“When I’m with them, I’m flying through different dimensions of love and I didn’t even know I could love something so much. And it’s very powerful to me, very spiritual, and I’m, like obsessive about them,” stated the father of two.
