'Design Star' judge Vern Yip and his partner welcomed a little girl to the family, PEOPLE reports. Vera Lillian Beatrix was born via surrogate on March 12 and joins older brother, Gavin Joshua Mannox, 14 months.

"We are thrilled and excited to add a new member to our family. On March 12th, Vera Lillian Beatrix came into the world and she is perfect in every possible way," Yip, 42, told PEOPLE.

"It is safe to say that we are all completely in love! Her big brother Gavin has already been taking good care of her, kissing her head and offering up his toys."

The 'Design Star' judge, who was recently appointed a UNICEF Ambassador for the United States, says he is glad to extend his enthusiasm for children to his new position. "I'm super excited about it," he told PEOPLE last year.
