Million Dollar Listing New York star Steve Gold announced earlier this summer that he and his girlfriend, Luiza Gawlowska, had welcomed a baby girl on June 6th who they named Rose Gold, and the news came as a surprise to both his friends and co-stars. The couple kept the pregnancy a secret for months, but there was a good reason behind that decision.
Gold told Page Six that he and Gawlowska didn’t go public with the pregnancy because they wanted to “keep this to ourselves and cherish this for a long time.” He explained that they did tell some close friends and family, but they weren’t “broadcasting it to the world.”
The 34-year-old admitted that it was difficult to keep such a big part of his life under wraps, but it was worth it when he saw his daughter for the first time.
“I want to thank everyone who respected our privacy along the way,” said Gold, explaining that he decided to share the news because “after staring down and seeing those perfect little eyes looking back up at me for the first time makes me so excited for this incredible new chapter.”
Gold’s fellow MDLNY agent Ryan Serhant says that he didn’t find out about Gawlowska’s pregnancy until a few weeks before the Instagram post. “He surprised us” at his housewarming party, says Serhant. “He introduced us to his girlfriend for the first time, and she turns around and she’s super pregnant.”
At first, Serhant thought it was a joke because Gold is a “funny guy.” But, eventually, he realized that “it was real and a baby came out.” Fredrik Eklund said he “had no idea” that Gold and his girlfriend were expecting, and he got emotional when he heard the news.
“Also, he tricked me and said he was having twins, so I think I got tears in my eyes,” says Eklund.
Gold and Gawlowksa have been dating since August 2018, and they moved in together just six months into their relationship. At the time, he said that he had finally found someone who gets him after years of searching.
The luxury real estate agent says that he never expected to fall in love with someone from another country, much less move in together and start a family. But, he believes that he is more himself with Gawlowska then he is when he is alone, and he has become more of what he used to be as a kid – more fun-loving.
