New dad Vern Yip of HGTV’s Design Star showed off some pictures of his son Gavin Joshua Mannox, who was born to Yip and his partner via surrogate on Jan. 6. And no, that isn’t a real elephant in the background but a mural Yip had commissioned for the nursery, a most fabulous nursery I might add. See more pictures after the jump!
“[The mural] is based on a story that a monk in Bhutan told us during our journey there and features all four of our dogs,” explains Yip.
“The nursery is unlike any other nursery I’ve ever seen before and very reflective of us,” he adds. “Lots of things brought back from trips to the most remote corners of the world. We really want our son to grow up aware of different cultures.”
Congratulations to the new parents! And congratulations on the most awesome nursery, ever.
