Designer Nate Berkus and husband Jeremiah Brent on Friday shared a first photo of daughter Poppy.

Less than a year after the couple married, Berkus and Brent welcomed Poppy into their family.

Poppy Brent-Berkus was born on March 23 via surrogate.

The PEOPLE exclusive shows Brent holding a swaddled Poppy as Berkus looks on.

“Our paternal instincts kicked in almost instantly,” Berkus told the magazine. “She came out with her eyes open, looking around like she had been waiting for us.”

“I never thought I would be so excited to be 10 inches away from a filthy diaper as I am. I live by her diaper schedule,” he added.

Berkus, 43, currently hosts the NBC reality show American Dream Builders, while Brent, 29, is a designer who appeared on cabler Bravo's The Rachel Zoe Project.
