Last week in Hollywood, hundreds of expecting and new moms came together for “The Biggest Baby Shower Ever” event, hosted by Big City Moms. I was lucky enough to attend and boy did it live up to its name.
With dozens of vendors participating including Joovy, the Honest Company, Baby Jogger, Mama Mio, Mustela, UppaBaby and more, there were plenty of giveaways, samples and more to be had. I’ve never seen so many baby products in one location. So much to learn, and so much to add to my registry!
Celebrity parents including Giuliana Rancic, Beverley Mitchell, James and Kimberly Van der Beek and Bill Horn and Scout Masterson (“The Guncles”) came to check out the latest and great must-haves for mommy and baby.
Giuliana Rancic hosted a VIP meet and greet session with Born Free where she greeted hundreds of expecting moms and talked about her mommy must-haves, baby Duke, and life as a working mom.
Beverley Mitchell, who is due in just three weeks, came to check out all the fun product finds and to support her friends Bill and Scout who were speaking on baby product trends. She was feeling “a little ginormous” but was in great spirits all evening, and had lots of energy to tour the entire event, talk to fans, and share details of her pregnancy. Girl, I can feel you on the “ginormous” front. I’m just five months, but I am very round. She was great.
James Van der Beek came to support wife Kimberly who spoke to the crowd about natural childbirth and her own personal experience — “it was not as easy as my mom had promised,” and was her biggest fan, taking her photo on the red carpet and video taping her entire speech for their personal home videos. So sweet to see them holding hands through out the event. Couldn’t help but love it.
Bill Horn and Scout Masterson came prepped with all of the latest must-have baby products on the market and proved their stellar daddy skills with their product demo for the crowd. The couple were happy to share their entire daddy intel with the guests on-hand. Loved seeing these hands on dads show off their baby loving skills.
