Berkus was born in Orange County, California, and grew up mainly in suburban Minneapolis.
He attended Cushing Academy, a boarding school in Ashburnham, Massachusetts.
But it wasn’t until December 2004 that his personal life became a lot more public.
He and his partner, photographer Fernando Bengoechea were vacationing at a beach resort in Sri Lanka when the Indian Ocean tsunami hit.
Nate Berkus and boyfriend Jeremiah Brent are officially engaged to be wed, a rep for Berkus tells Us Weekly exclusively.
Fernando Bengoechea was a photographer who traveled the world on assignment and was the love of designer Nate Berkus' life.
The fashion-forward pair were first linked back in December 2012 after they were spotted "kissing at the sunglass rack in the men's section," an eyewitness told at the time.
And after the word was out, the pair began to split their time between New York and Los Angeles (where Brent, Rachel Zoe's former assistant, is based).
The couple revealed their little angel was born on March 23 via a surrogate and it's more than obvious that the new parents could not be any happier! Berkus and Brent, a former assistant to Rachel Zoe, wrote a beautiful message announcing the news that had our head swimming! Zac Efron should be REQUIRED to wear sweatpants at all times!
