Introducing Milla and Fredrik Jr.
Having kids was like “walking into the light”
Fatherhood was an instant and drastic change for the reality star, who told People becoming a dad totally changed his perspective. “I don’t really miss life before…it’s like walking into the light,” he said. "I look back [and] it was very dark.”
Milla and Fredrik Jr. are the happy destination of a long, long journey
In an emotional Facebook post, Fredrik wrote, “I’m sad to share we’ve had a failed pregnancy. I have cried so much that I can’t cry anymore. We were pregnant with twins but we’re not anymore."
The twins were worth the heartache and struggle
“They’ve already turned gravity completely upside down for us as the new centre of everything...The difficult journey here was so worth it and all happened for a reason — thank God we didn’t give up! I didn’t know I could love this much."

Love beyond words
Fredrik’s a Twiniversity scholar
