Mum-to-be Ellen Pompeo was joined by 25 friends, including Kate Walsh, Sandra Oh and Rebecca Gayheart, for a baby shower held on Saturday, August 29th at Katherine Heigl‘s home in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles.
Ellen and her husband Chris Ivery are expecting a baby daughter in October.
An eyewitness said:
“Ellen looked gorgeous in a white summer dress with her hair in a braided up-do. She seemed very excited to celebrate with her girlfriends.”
The catered outdoor baby bash was held in the backyard. Umbrellas shielded guests from the heat – L.A. temps reached 104 degrees Saturday – and pink flower arrangements and candles accented the tables. Guests brought gifts wrapped in girly pink and yellow colours.
Many of the gifts – which included a Sleep Sheep toy mobile, Sleepy Safari stacking toys, organic hooded towels and a Kiddopotamus organic swaddle wrap – came from the Juvenile Shop in Sherman Oaks, where Ellen is registered.
Earlier in the day, she and Nicole Richie – who also is pregnant – shared some special time together.
