Ryan Guzman‘s baby boy is set up in style.

Sharing exclusive photos of their 6-day-old son Mateo‘s nursery, the 9-1-1 actor and his fiancée Chrysti Ane tell PEOPLE they “loved the idea of natural, neutral colors” as a foundation to build off of.

“Then, slowly but surely, we started finding cute little plush animals in the perfect colors, so the nursery evolved into a ‘Neutral Color Animal’ theme,” the couple explain.

And a final touch of color brought the space to life. As Guzman and Ane reveal, “We chose blue as our color ‘pop’ and it all came together!”

With help from Gugu Guru, the new parents pulled the room together with pieces from a variety of brands — like the Soho Baby Hampton 4-in-1 Convertible Crib in Stonewash ($499), which they “fell in love with” immediately.

“We looked at other cribs but we kept coming back to the Hampton Collection,” Guzman and Ane recall. “It was exactly what we were looking for in design and color.”

They also “created custom bedding and window treatments using Carousel Designs” and picked up an “eco-friendly machine-washable rug” from Lorena Canals.

Ane announced their son’s birth on Instagram this week, sharing a photo of Mateo’s adorable, tiny feet.

“My heart multiplied by a million when I laid eyes on you,” wrote the new mom. “I didn’t understand the extent of my capability of love until January 24th, 2019.”

She concluded her caption, “I will do my best to love you, guide you, protect you, and be an example for you. My little Mateo 👶🏽♥️”
