A Baby Shower for a Third Kid? Gwen Stefani is Down With It!
What’s your take on baby showers after the first kid? Gwen Stefani seems ok with them!
With baby boy #3 (we were kind of hoping she’d have a girl, only because we wanted to see some fierce outfits on the little one) on the way, the gorgeous rocker mama was the guest of honor at a blue-themed shower at the Hotel Bel-Air over the weekend. Gwen posted photos of the star-studded event – Rachel Zoe, Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Richie, Chelsea Handler and Jessica Alba were all in attendance (what – you didn’t have celebrities at your shower?) – on Instagram (see photos below, courtesy of her account), writing, “baby shower!!! #can’t believe I’m pregs.”
According to People, Gwen, who is already mom to sons Kingston and Zuma, was spoiled on her special day, receiving goodies from Alba’s The Honest Company and a basket full of “practical” necessities from baby boutique Bel Bambini.
Now, Stefani has received some criticism for having a third baby shower – god knows she doesn’t need anything. She’s got the money and she’s got plenty of boy gear from the previous bambinos. But honestly, I say all the power to her. As a busy mom, I don’t think I’d be able to handle going to showers for all of my friends on their second and third kids, plus it can get pretty costly. But you can’t begrudge a girl the desire to want to celebrate with friends, especially if money isn’t an issue and a party planner was hired. Now, most of us can’t afford that luxury, but here’s to those who can!
I hate attention – I wanted the earth to swallow me up during my wedding shower and office baby shower, but that’s just me. Gwen’s an entertainer so she’s used to being the focus.
What do you think? Are baby showers for second – and third – children in poor taste?
