New parents Jason Priestley and wife Naomi Lowde-Priestley introduce their new baby to the world on the cover of Us magazine this week.
It wasn’t the storybook beginning the new parents had hoped. Four days after the July 2 birth, 7-pound, 4-ounce Ava cried all night.
Luckily for the Priestleys, Ava has adjusted wonderfully to her new home and the first-time parents couldn’t be happier. “She is very mellow,” Naomi gushes.
It helps that Priestley, 37, has gone from 90210 to Nanny 911! “You gotta be involved,” says Priestley, whom his wife, 31, describes as a “very hands-on” dad. “The other day I had her on my chest and she peed on me. But babies are like bunny rabbits. When they pee on you, it means they like you.”
Priestley adds, “The first time I saw her, time stood still. It took my breath away.”
