While most women’s baby showers involve pastel cupcakes and an awkward game or two, celebrities mamas just do things differently. (Must be all that extra money they have lying around, eh?)
These famous mamas know how to welcome baby in Insta-worthy style. Here are the star showers that we can’t stop obsessing over.
Kim Kardashian: Zen Mama
“Because I’m freaking out and the baby is coming in, like, two weeks, I thought what better way to celebrate than to have a little CBD.” – Kim Kardashian
Dare we call her the queen of baby showers? Just when we thought she couldn’t top her pajama party-themed baby shower, Kim pulled out all the CBD-infused stops with her blissed-out shower for Baby No. 4, who just arrived last week!

Jessica Simpson: Ethereal Mama
“Just own the waddle. That is my strut.” – Jessica Simpson
Looking like a glowing goddess, Jessica celebrated her daughter Birdie Mae with an over-the-top floral fête. Guests were encouraged to stuff their “beaks” inside this lavish “Birdie’s Nest” affair, as outsiders watched and related to the saga of Jessica’s cankles.

Joanna Gaines: Literary Mama
“I like big books and I cannot lie.” – Joanna Gaines
Star of Fixer Upper, Joanna Gaines was showered in anticipation of baby Crew by her nearest and dearest. The lit-themed party, with oversized books and enormous balloons, ensured that this babe’s nursery library would be fully stocked with the classics. Complete with library card invitations and an antique card catalog, we’d expect nothing less from this designer dreamgirl.

Meghan Markle: Royal Mama
“I dreamt [of becoming] a successful working actress, which I can now very thankfully tick off the list. And I also dream to have a family.” – Meghan Markle
The most exclusive baby shower to date was thrown for none other than the dopest duchess, Meghan Markle, ahead of the arrival of Archie Harrison. The top-secret shower took place at The Mark Hotel in New York and hosted an A-list crowd, including Amal Clooney and Serena Williams. For some reason, we were left off the guest list, but we hear there was both a dessert tasting and a flower-arranging lesson for guests to enjoy.

“If I could spit out a litter of kids, I would.” – Blake Lively
Blake Lively’s fall-themed baby shower will go down as one of our all-time favs. The perfectly-curated event featured pumpkin pies and gourd-covered tablescapes. Thanks, Blake, for giving us more fall FOMO than we care to have. Of course, now that she and husband Ryan Reynolds are expecting their third, we’re waiting with bated breath for her next shower theme.
