Design Star judge Vern Yip and his partner are expecting their second child via a surrogate.
Vern shared the good news with PEOPLE:
“It’s really exciting, we’re thrilled,”
“We’re due the very first week of March.”
Vern and his partner already have a 10-month-old son, Gavin Joshua Mannox.
Will big brother Gavin be getting a little sister, or a little brother? The couple knows, but they’re not quite ready to spill the beans.
Vern is most excited that his kids will be close in age — something he missed with his sister being 10 years older than him:
“I love her to pieces, but we were always in two different places in our lives because when I was a kid, she was going through adolescence, and when she was going off to college, I was in junior high. I missed that experience, and I’m really excited that Gavin and his sibling will be close in age.”
Congratulations to the family! And good luck – two kids under 2? NO THANKS!
