Nigel Barker Plays Baker for Kids’ Birthday Parties

11/29/2010 at 04:00 PM ET

Nigel Barker might need to tie on an apron before hosting birthday festivities for son Jack, who turned 5 on Nov. 28, and daughter Jasmine Ines, who turns 2 on Dec. 7.

“I’m actually planning on making their birthday cakes with them,” says the America’s Next Top Model photographer, whose kids with Cristen Chin Barker will be inviting friends over for a cake baking bash. “It may look a bit of a mess, but the kids will have some say so it’ll be fun.”

After comparing prices at a variety of fancy New York City bakeries, Barker, 38, decided that “a custom cake is a little adventurous — but I can probably do this myself for less.”

And which flavor looks to be the front-runner for Jack’s personalized cake? Admits Barker: “He loves just about anything chocolate, to be honest!”

So cute! The boy has the darker Indian look, like his father, and the girl is the spitting image of her mum. He seems to be a very involved father.

Actually, Nigel is half Sri Lankan & half British. Adorable children, none the less.

They’ve both grown so much since the last photo i’ve seen of them. Nigel and Cristen sure make beautiful babies! In this photo little Jasmine is the mirrored image of her mum. And since I didn’t manage to snag gorgeous Mr. Barker, i’m glad that Cristen did. @Alexandra…are Sri Lankan & British actual ethnicities, or are they Nationalities?
