Former ‘Flipping Out’ Star Jeff Lewis Says He Plans to Use New Surrogate To Have Second Child, Despite Getting Sued by His Previous Surrogate

“If I promise not to make fun of your lady parts while you’re giving birth, will you have my baby?”

Jeff Lewis is planning to give his four-year-old daughter Monroe Christine a new brother or sister, or maybe both, he revealed on his SiriusXM radio show Jeff Lewis Live, People is reporting. The former Flipping Out star— who used a surrogate to carry his daughter in 2016– reported that he has found the woman he’d like to use as his next surrogate.

 “I matched with a new surrogate. I like her a lot. We’re actually in the contract phase,” he said on Thursday’s show.

Jeff’s decision to once again use a surrogate is somewhat surprising, given the negative experience he had with his previous surrogate.

Jeff and former partner Gage Edward used surrogate Alexandra Trent to carry Monroe in 2016. The pregnancy and birth — as well as disparaging comments Jeff and Gage made about Alexandra’s anatomy during the birth— were featured on ‘Flipping Out.’

Alexandra later sued the couple and Bravo for “publicly humiliating” her by filming the birth without her knowledge. The suit was dropped in 2019 with Alexandra reportedly receiving a small payout from Bravo/NBCUniversal. All sides also reportedly agreed not to discuss the suit or settlement publicly.

Jeff’s SiriusXM co-host Doug Budin alluded to the saga by asking Jeff if he was “going to do things differently” this time around.

 Jeff responded, “Yes, I have learned from my past mistakes…I’m not allowed to talk about that kind of stuff, but yeah.”

A few months before the settlement was reached with Alexandra, Jeff and Gage split after 10 years together and were embroiled in a bitter custody dispute that went on for more than two years. Jeff announced in May that the two had reached an agreement to have joint custody of their daughter.

Jeff stated that, if all goes well with his surrogate, he could have another child by next fall. He sought advice from his SiriusXM cohost Megan Weaver on how to proceed with growing his family.

“I was like, ‘This is what’s happening. We could potentially do a transfer in December or January, that gives us a September or October baby…'” Jeff shared from their conversations on the radio show. “And then I said, ‘I have two embryos: the boy or the girl.’ We really were seriously talking about, ‘What do I do? Do I put in the boy or the girl?'”

“So Megan was giving me really serious advice — she’s a mother of three. She gave me some really good sound advice and I said, ‘To be honest with you, Megan, I really want both of them.'”

  1. I listen to his show and he really seems like he has grown a lot from when he was on flipping out. I think Monroe has made him more considerate. I’m happy for her that she will have a sibling as she has been asking him for one. He also stated clearly that he wants both the boy and the girl but not at the same time so he isn’t planning on trying for twins.

  2. I’ve never seen this show, don’t know anything about the dude, but I had to look up the ‘disparaging comments’ he made about his former surrogate and I am disgusted…

    “If I was a surrogate and I had known there was going to be an audience, I probably would have waxed.”

    “I don’t think Gage had ever seen a vagina, let alone one that big.”

    What kind of misogynistic, hateful, hypocritical bullshit is this?! The woman makes a very permanent change in her life in order to give you the gift of parenthood, and you make bitchy comments about how her body looks during childbirth. What an absolute piece of shit. This has actually made me kind of mad.

    1. And he has a daughter and wants another?

      Yeah, no. Hes an arrogant pig.

      Plus he was vicious to his ex and played a lot of games to get custody of the child. The first child was basically a pawn.

  3. I am sure it never occured to him that the woman may not want to “carry” twins since that increases her (and the children’s for that matter) health risks. Is he going to force her to give birth on a certain date like the last time? Oh well she has been forewarned I guess money talks. I just feel bad for any of his kids. He is just awful.

  4. Oh, Jeffrey. I’m a mom of twins. You do not want twins and a preschooler unless you have a good partner AND some hired help. It’s a lot of work. Don’t be greedy, pick one embie and go with it. Wishing you luck!
