Jaime Pressly shows off Dezi James' nursery
Pregnant actress Jaime Pressly, 29, eagerly awaits the arrival of her son Dezi James Calvo, next month, and gives Us Weekly a peek at his safari-themed nursery. Dezi is now due May 8th – a change, since earlier Jaime had given her due date as May 13th. Here are the interview highlights – click the extended post to check out Dezi’s jungle room in detail.
Turkeys done: I can’t wait to get my body back!
But something will be cookin’ again soon: In the next two years, I’d like another child, so Dezi has a companion.
Why the safari theme?: Teddy bears get old. It’s great stimulation and he’ll grow into it. [We chose the crib and changing table] because you can use them for a boy or a girl.

The nursery was designed by Erinn Valencich, who worked with Pottery Barn Kids to put the room together.
The crib is Pottery Barn Kid’s Larkin Sleigh crib, which is not currently available – however, they sell a slightly different – and cheaper – version ($700).
The changing table is Pottery Barn Kid’s Larkin dresser in rustic sun valley expresso ($750), capped off with a changing table topper ($150). To the left of the table are blue stripe changing table storage boxes ($20).
The lamp is Pottery Barn Kid’s Marin table lamp ($80). Surrounding the lamp are animal letters spelling out Dezi’s name, as well as a childhood photo of Jaime, in addition to a photo of her fiance Eric’s Cuban grandparents, who ‘look like the Waltons.’ Jaime feels ‘its important to have different generations represented in the room.’
The Jungle Book-inspired wall panels were created by Los Angeles artist Seizer-One.
The giraffe is from FAO Schwarz’s Lifelike Animals Collection ($400).
The baby elephant is from FAO Schwarz’s Lifelike Animals Collection ($700).
On the changing table sits a ‘chick magnet’ pillow, which cracks Eric up – he’s so excited, says Jaime. The pillow was a gift. A pair of Robeez’s baby dinos in light blue ($26) are in front of it.
The ‘Dezi James’ chairs are a special gift. Jaime says, ‘Eric’s cousin painted the chairs for the baby. It means so much to us.’
