Eva Longoria Celebrates Her Baby Shower with a Pajama-Themed Party
Baby Bastón is already being showered with tons of love.
Eva Longoria—who is expecting her first child, a baby boy, with husband José “Pepe” Bastón—celebrated the family’s upcoming arrival with a pajama party-themed baby shower on Saturday at the Lombardi House in Los Angeles.
“Eva wore a strapless, white dress and was glowing. She kept laughing and touching her baby bump. They played several baby games and Eva was in the best mood,” a source tells People. “At the end of the shower, Pepe showed up and Eva got very emotional. He thanked the guests for coming and said that they can’t wait to meet their baby. It was a very special baby shower.”
Melanie Griffith even caught Bastón’s surprise appearance on video, sharing the adorable moment when the 43-year-old actress excitedly stood up to go greet him.
“Pepe surprised Eva at the baby shower!” Griffith captioned the video. “Such beautiful love. Soul mates. Happiness, connection, love, all is right in their world. True love!!”
The bash’s guest list included plenty of other stars, including Longoria’s Desperate Housewives costar Marcia Cross, Sophia Bush, Elizabeth Banks and Roselyn Sanchez. Stars took full advantage of the event’s photo booth, posing with baby-themed props and “Baby Bastón” printouts.
“Celebrating with @evalongoria today – baby Baston has the cutest, smartest, coolest mom ever,” Banks captioned a collection of shots with the mom-to-be and Griffith in the photo booth.
Guests were also treated to a day of pampering with neck massages and manicures as they sipped on wine and Bloody Marys.
Longoria received a lot of gifts after making a list of must-haves for her son on Amazon Baby Registry, including clothes, books, a stroller and a car seat.
The star thanked Amazon’s Mama Bear for creating a diaper cake on her Instagram Story, while teddy bears wearing “Baby Baston” shirts were set up throughout the party. Winners of the shower games were awards with gift baskets filled with Mama Bear essentials.
In February, Longoria told People that she was enjoying being “in the golden months” of her pregnancy.
“I’m full of energy, and the hard part of the first trimester is over,” she continued, adding that her husband is also “ecstatic” about the new addition to their family.
