MTV’s Cribs had a revival in Austin, Texas. Sort of.

Filmmaker and soon-to-be dad  Bryan Canatella gave a Cribs-style video tour of the nursery he designed with wife Caryn. Complete with the music from the show, on air from 2000 to 2011, the tour offered us a glimpse into every “wing” of the space, which will be home to daughter CiCi in a month.

“Got a little library; got lots of books,” Canatella says, motioning towards the doll house bookshelf. And since this is Cribs, after all, other celebrities get a shout out. " Jimmy Fallon — one of my favorites," he says, holding a copy of Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada.

“We’ve got one of our core values emblazoned on the wall, 'cause we just don’t want her to take life too seriously,” he adds, pointing at the wall art reading “PLAY.”

Moving on to the “west wing,” Canatella highlights CiCi’s “chill spot,” a rocking chair.

“We’ve got a blanket with her name on it,” he says. “We’ve got Mr. Cloud right here, and Princess Puppy Purse. This is where CiCi’s gonna think about her little baby day.”
