Hosted by friends and family, Rochelle’s baby shower was the epitomy of celebrity baby bling lasting six hours and filled with pink balloons, cupcakes and expensive gifts.
Alongside the Aston Martin Silver Cross buggy, given to the expectant parents by husband Marvin’s JLS bandmate, Aston, the couple were also presented with four other prams. The lengthy list includes two Bugaboos, worth £730 each, a Maclaren stroller and a model by Mothercare.
The deluge of baby buggies occured after Rochelle had neglected to tell guests what they still needed. A source told The Mirror: “As each buggy got wheeled into the room it got more and more awkward for all concerned. Poor Rochelle was mortified, she was expecting a couple of babygrows and a few toys…”
Not the case for NBC news correspondent, Jenna Bush Hager, who had pre-asked her guests to bring a favourite children’s book and to pen practical parenting adice on the inside cover.
“Everyone gave me books, which was really sweet because my mom was a librarian so I grew up with a mother that read to us all the time.”
Jenna also treated her guests to savoury cracker rings shaped like dummies and baby Coca-Cola bottles. In return, one of the guests gave her a book that we think Jenna may be shelving for a while…
“The strangest book I got was Fifty Shades of Grey. I said ‘we don’t need a baby No.2 yet, let’s just get No.1 out first!'”
