Like many new dads, J.R. Martinez can?t help but gush over his 2-month-old daughter, Lauryn Anabelle, or ?Belle? for short. ?She is so aware of her surroundings!? he tells the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands now.
Luckily for Belle, her surroundings include a stylish ? and serene ? room with distressed floors, unique light fixtures and dark wood accents. ?There?s a soft rug in the middle of the floor that?s so comfortable,? J.R tells In Touch. ?We plan on spending lots of tummy time there in the future!?
The Dancing With the Stars winner and his girlfriend of four years, Diana Gonzalez-Jones, 30, worked with design experts Little Crown Interiors to create the luxurious nest, which J.R. admits is now his favorite spot in the house. ?Diana fell in love with a lamb theme,? adds J.R. ?Then her mother pointed out LAMB is an acronym for Lauryn Anabelle Martinez Belle.?
And J.R. proudly admits to In Touch that he is reveling in each new milestone his little girl hits. ?The biggest thing,? he says, ?is when Belle started smiling.?

Welcome boys and ghouls, to a very spooky episode of The Engadget Show. We've got plenty of tricks and treats for you in this Halloweentastic October episode. We kick things off with a trip to Oklahoma City, to the home of Flaming Lips frontman, Wayne Coyne, who talks Parking Lot Experiments, Halloween displays and why if your phone screen isn't broken, you aren't living your life. Next up, we'll show you all the necessary tools for a proper ghost hunt, with a little help from author Mary Roach, Ghost Hunters' Adam Berry and the crew of the Central NY Ghost Hunters.
In Vermont, we have a conversation with robot head Bina48 to find out what it really means to be alive and we travel to Los Angeles to talk to movie makeup Wizard Kevin Yagher and the costume experts at Global Effects Inc. And when the Engadget Van breaks down outside of an electronics store, it's up to Tim, Brian and rock band, Free Energy, to solve a very spooky mystery.
All that plus a new Ask @hodgman and a gadget table featuring the new iPod touch, Kindle Paperwhite and Galaxy Note II from Dapper Cadaver, our favorite place to buy prop corpses in the Southern California area. Jump on in after the break -- if you dare!

The online video business is one to two years away from the type of meaningful metrics that big brands want, says Mike Racic, Executive VP and Managing Partner for US Portfolio Management at Universal McCann at the Adap.TV conference in New York. Beet.TV caught up with Racic to discuss metrics in online video as well as portfolio management at media agencies. Big brands still want high level metrics from their advertising campaigns, even across digital platforms, he explains. That's why partnerships such as the ones traditional measurement firms like Nielsen and Rentrak are striking in the digital world bode well for the future of metirics, he tells us. "The metrics in digital have always been more focused on repsonse, click-through, cost-per-click, a view-through," he explains, adding that while those are useful metrics, brands often prefer a more expansive insight from a campaign. He also shared details on how Universal McCann approaches portfolio management for its brands.
