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.”

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 👶🏽♥️”
