The interior designers recently opened up to PEOPLE about their new TLC show — Nate & Jeremiah By Design, which premieres April 8 — including the positive impact of having a same-sex couple hosting.

“It’s a renovation show, but you’re also getting to come into the lives of two gay dads and their family, so that’s a great thing in and of itself,” Berkus said.

“We both believe in opening up the doors and letting people know that we love the way you love,” he added. “We eat dinner the way you eat dinner. Everything about us is the same, and as cliché as the saying is, love is love. That’s exactly what the show is about.”
