Nothing can prepare you for motherhood. Not even years spent working for Jeff Lewis.
On June 29, Interior Therapy star Jenni Pulos and her husband, Dr. Jonathan Nassos, welcomed their first baby, daughter Alianna Marika. And now, the new mom has shared the first photos of her adorable little girl.
"She cries, she's crabby, she yells at me. Then she eats and she's a little happier," Jenni tells the Dish, noting that this type of behavior is not entirely foreign to her. "Since I've had my own baby for 13 years, Jeff Lewis, I'm used to that. I've been training all this time."

But even Jenni, who's had her share of ups and downs with Lewis, can admit that "Jeff is cake in comparison to Aliana."
Alianna entered the world at 8 lbs, 10 oz, and, according to Jenni, is "already a drama queen" but shows much promise. "She's very focused like her father, and he's a surgeon," says Jenni. The new mom, who released a children's rap album earlier this year, also sees a lot of herself in her newborn. "She loves hearing me rap," says Jenni. "She could be a hip-hop dancer. I'm noticing the jams!"
Despite the tantrums and Jeff comparisons, Jenni wouldn't change a thing about her pride and joy. "You will not sleep again—ever," she explains. "And you'll probably get peed on. But it's worth it! You're forced to slow down, live for someone else. They become No. 1. All of those things are wonderful."
Things are so wonderful, in fact, that even though the couple is "putting the brakes on" having more children for the moment, Pulos is open to expanding her brood in the future. "I'd love to have a boy, but another girl would be great too. A girl and boy would be fun. I'm very lucky we were able to have her. we'll see what the future holds.
Obviously we may be biased, but do you think Jenni Pulos' baby is the most adorable baby ever? Share your mazels with the new mom in the comments!
