Olympic swimmer Nathan Adrian and his wife, Hallie Ivester, became new parents recently. A brand new nursery and playroom have been designed for the couple's first bundle of joy.
To make their daughter Parker Jacquelyn feel at home, Nathan Adrian and Hallie Ivester partnered with Pottery Barn Kids to set up a playroom and nursery, as shown in Adrian's Instagram post.
"Thank you [Pottery Barn Kids] for helping us create our dream nursery and playroom, where we can create special memories together as a family," the swimmer wrote.

In an interview with People, Ivester said that the room turned out better than either she or her husband imagined. It incorporates modern furniture but also has a warm, comfortable feeling.
Getting further into details, Ivester said a polka-dot wallpaper design, accented with gold accents and stunning neutral textures, makes this nursery's decor sweet and chic.
As for Adrian, while functional aspects are critical, he also appreciates how comfortable the room can be. This was achieved by focusing on the soft textures present in the room.
The items used include items like the Baby Animal Decorative Pillow and the XO Knit Baby Blanket. His absolute favorite was the Machine Washable Faux Fur Nursery Round Rug in blush.
Thanks to early detection, the swimmer was cancer-free following several surgeries.
Also found in Baby Parker's playroom is the Lorena Canals Round ABC Washable Rug and various inviting accessories such as the Hug Life Neon Light and the Tiger Cuddle Plush.
On February 9, Adrian and Ivester welcomed Parker into their home. Taking to social media to announce the delightful news, the couple shared photos of their newborn.
Adrian and Ivester announced that they were expecting back in October. Their mutual love for the water is what brought the couple together since 2013. They exchanged their wedding vows in 2018.
After being diagnosed with testicular cancer two years ago, Adrian is now a father. Thanks to early detection, the swimmer was cancer-free following several surgeries.
As Adrian told People in July, his cancer battle had prepared him to handle the twists and turns of the COVID-19 pandemic, which included the eventual delay of the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics.
Although Adrian will have some lifestyle changes as a new father, nothing will hinder his pursuit of an Olympic medal at the fourth Games this summer.
