Fredrik Eklund is the latest celebrity to open up about a sobriety journey. The real-estate expert has been an open book on social media, and in mid-April 2022, he shared a sweet post to celebrate a huge milestone in his life. The Instagram post included a shot of himself and husband, Derek Kaplan, posing outside under a pastel sky. The scene almost looked fake as a rainbow appeared behind the pair. The two men put their arms around each other and smiled big for the camera.

To go along with the photo, Eklund shared a lengthy caption. “18 months without alcohol today,” he began the post. Eklund then described the ways in which his sobriety pushed him in a positive direction. “Traveling has gotten a new meaning. I’ve doubled my real estate business in just this fairly short time. I’m present and more efficient, yet go slower through each day,” he shared. Eklund added that he’s “reconnected with the boy I was a long time ago,” and seemed to give a nod to his husband, stating that he couldn’t have done this alone.

In March, the star celebrated a similar milestone, that time 160 days sober. “I was a high-functional addict as many of us are, and it took me a while to realize and admit that,” he wrote. While it’s undoubtedly good that Eklund is on a bright new path, we’re sure his fans will miss him on Bravo!
