It's official: TV personality Jeremiah Brent has achieved the glittering gay life we're all searching for. Last year, he and his husband, the drool-inducing Nate Berkus, were the first gay couple to marry in the New York Public library (obviously echoing a Carrie Bradshaw move every gay man secretly wanted). Earlier this year the duo welcomed a beautiful baby daughter they named Poppy. Now, Mr. Brent has another reason to celebrate: He's been named the Season 5 host of OWN's Home Made Simple.
To recap: Before moving into our hearts, Brent first appeared as a hopeful stylist on The Rachel Zoe Project. His passion for interior design, however, began much earlier. As he explains in a statement:
"I feel so fortunate to have been able to take a childhood hobby and turn it into a career. As the new host of Home Made Simple I can't wait to help use my passion for design and help other families learn fun and creative ways to makeover their own homes and their lives."
Home Made Simple combines interior design, gourmet cooking, and elite party planning to help regular families solve all their home improvement woes. The show is lauded with praise by critics and fans and has even won itself a Daytime Emmy.
Home Made Simple's new season starts production next month, and it will debut in January 2016 on OWN.
