Jay asked the twins to help renovate the bathroom and nursery for David who was about to have a baby with his wife Margaret.

They planned to add stylish built-in closets at Jay’s suggestion for the nursery and a new entrance for the bathroom so guests wouldn’t have to enter through the bedroom.

‘Nothing makes a more perfect statement for a nursery than having a beautiful wallpaper or mural,’ Jonathan said.

Jay held up a sampler decorated with red and blue cars and gave his approval.
