An open book. Jeff Lewis got hilariously honest when sharing 25 facts you might not know about him exclusively with Us Weekly.

“I’d like to have more children,” the interior designer, 52, told Us. “I’m hoping they’ll be nicer to me than the one I have.”

He was joking about daughter Monroe, 5, who he shares with ex Gage Edward. After their 2019 split, an insider exclusively told Us that the pair were “fantastic parents and completely devoted to their daughter.”

The Flipping Out alum has already matched with a surrogate for baby No. 2, he revealed on his SirusXM show in September 2021. He explained at the time that Jeff Lewis Live cohost Megan Weaver was helping him consider his options.

“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,” Lewis told SiriusXM’s Radio Andy listeners at the time. “She gave me some really good sound advice and I said, ‘To be honest with you, Megan, I really want both of them.’”

Honesty is always a priority with the reality star, which fans will see on his new show, Hollywood Houselift. He helps celebs like Wilmer Valderrama (NCIS), Lamorne Morris (New Girl) and comedian Fortune Feimster with unique renovations.

New episodes of Hollywood Houselift with Jeff Lewis air Fridays on Amazon Freevee (formerly IMDb TV). Scroll down to see 25 things you don’t know about Lewis:
