AceShowbiz - Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter Apple Martin seemingly could not wait to have a playtime with Derek Blasberg and Nick Brown's twin babies. Reacting to the famed celebrity fashion writer's social media post, the teenager volunteered herself to be their babysitter.
On Monday, June 21, Derek took to his Instagram feed to post a photo of himself and Nick Brown posing in front of "DILFS" balloons which were sent by Cara Delevingne's sister Poppy Delevingne to celebrate Father's Day. The first-time father, who welcomed daughter Elizabeth Grace and son Frederick Noah via surrogate on May 18, captioned the snap, "And a special thank you to @poppydelevingne for sending such a heartwarming, touching Father's Day gift."
In the comment section, many of his famous pals sent well wishes to Derek, including the 17-year-old daughter of the "Iron Man" actress and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. Voicing her desire to babysit the twin babies, she wrote, "Don't worry i'll babysit WHENEVER."
Derek then replied to the comment, "HIRED!" with a heart emoji. Aside from Apple, the "Nightcap" alum Ali Wentworth also chimed in, "My girls are ready to babysit!" The head of fashion and beauty at YouTube later responded, "I'm already negotiating rates."
Derek announced the surprise arrival of his twins on May 26. At the time, he shared an adorable picture of the newborn babies on Instagram along with a lengthy caption that read, "I am humbled and honored by the arrival of these two magnificent, glorious angels. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to @nickbrown for being a wonderful life partner, best friend and now co-parent."
"Thank you to our marvelous surrogate for making this longtime dream a reality," he continued to express his gratitude to all persons who helped him. "Thank you to anyone who was raised in or started their own non-traditional family, and blazed a path for us to start ours. And thank you to our incredible support system of friends, relatives, coworkers, medical professionals, and everyone else (even the lawyers!) who've joined us on this journey."
Derek elaborated, "Whoever said 'it takes a village to raise a child' wasn't a same-sex parent having kids via an out-of-state surrogacy at the tail end of a global pandemic. It took so many villages (and counties, and states, etc) to start our family and we're profoundly grateful to all of them." The new parent went on to rave over parenthood, adding, "This bliss is real."
Near the end of his caption, he sent "lots of love, positive vibes, and a new dad's optimism for the future to every single person on this planet." He then concluded his post by joking, "See you in 18 years, everyone!"
