Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward finally meet their daughter Monroe for the first time in emotional scenes on this week’s episode of Flipping Out.

The pair went through years of research before deciding to have Monroe through a surrogate, with the pregnancy followed on the Bravo show last season.

Monroe was born on October 25 last year. Jeff introduced her to the world with a post on his Instagram, saying: “At 4:22 pm today I grew up. Welcome Monroe Christine Lewis.”

The Flipping Out star has since posted regular updates to fans showing how Monroe is starting to grow up.

One, posted several days after Monroe’s birth, showed him with her nuzzled into his shoulder with the caption: “Day 12 and she’s still alive! #milestone #wegotthis #butwearetired.”

Another showed him hoovering the floor with Monroe in one hand while his housekeeper Zoila Chavez, who has since retired after 18 years working for Lewis, looked on.

One pic saw him and Monroe sitting in front of his computer with the caption “my new intern”.
