Jessica Alba Celebrates Her Baby Shower Mere Days Before Her Due Date
It’s a celebratory tradition for expectant mothers—baby showers are a joyous occasion for friends and family to come together, and actress Jessica Alba is no stranger to them as she celebrated number three over the weekend.
The 36-year-old founder of The Honesty Company, a company the Dark Angel actress created to provide safe and effective products for infants, reveled in a tea-time themed shower hosted by her mother, Cathy Alba, and friend Kelly Sawyer at Ladurée in Beverly Hills.
Alba gushed, “Had the most beautiful baby shower today @ladureeus thank u @pierreantoineny -Of course to @kellysawyer & @cathyalba for Hosting and to all my homegirls n boys who came to shower #babyboywarren -I felt so loved and I [love] u all to pieces.”
Alba has two other children, Honor, 9, and Haven, 6, with husband Cash Warren. She announced she was expecting her third back in July.
While there’s no “right time” to have your shower, Alba certainly waited until the last minute, with her due date merely days away. At the party she gave a speech to her guests saying, “He’s gonna fall out of me anytime now, so this is good that we’re doing this.”
The post, which included a slide show featuring the actress holding festive balloons, posing with her hosts, and a hero shot of the “It’s a Boy” cake, received nearly 200k likes and almost a thousand comments sending her well wishes, “Congrats! A little prince! How wonderful- God bless,” and messages of admiration, “Jess congratulations!!! Inspiring me everyday I love u my #goddess.”
The elegant celebration demonstrated it’s never too late to have your baby shower!
