She’s glowing and showing! Monica looked stunning at her baby shower held at the home of Jermaine Dupri on Saturday in Atlanta.
The 32-year-old-expectant singer was joined by her Phoenix Suns guard husband Shannon Brown, 27, for the carnival-themed event for their first child together baby girl Laiyah, which featured jugglers, stilt walkers and a miniature circus tent. Big-brothers-to-be Rocko and Romelo were also on hand.
“It was very whimsical, just like a Disney princess movie and just as I had envisioned it,” Monica told People Magazine of the affair coordinated by event planning expert Mindy Weiss. “There was so much love in the room and everybody had a great time.”
The guests — which included Laiyah’s god father Ludacris, Nene Leakes and Keri Hilson — noshed on comfort food.
Monica tells the publication that she is beyond excited about the arrival of daughter Laiyah. “I know everything about WrestleMania and Tonka Trucks so I’m excited to share shopping dates and manis and pedis with her. But I’m really looking forward to teaching her about life,” she shared. “I want to be an example to her like my mother was to me.”
Monica shared the news that she was pregnant this past Mother’s Day on her Instagram account. She is also mom to sons Rocko, 8, and Romelo, 5, with her ex-fiance, rapper Rocko. Brown has a son, Shannon Christopher, from a previous relationship.
Congrats to the happy couple!
