This week, in Hollywood, hundreds of expecting, new and Tinseltown moms came together for “The Biggest Baby Shower Ever” event, hosted by Big City Moms.
Celebrity parents including Giuliana Rancic, Beverley Mitchell, James and Kimberly Van der Beek and Bill Horn and Scout Masterson (“The Guncles”) checked out the latest and great must-haves for mommy and baby.
Giuliana Rancic hosted a VIP meet and greet session with Born Free where she greeted hundreds of expecting moms and talked about her mommy must-haves, baby Duke, and life as a working mom.
Beverley Mitchell, who is due in just three weeks, came to check out all the fun product finds and to support her friends Bill and Scout who were speaking on baby product trends. She was feeling “a little ginormous” but was in great spirits all evening, and had lots of energy to tour the entire event, talk to fans, and share details of her pregnancy.
James Van der Beek came to support wife Kimberly who spoke to the crowd about natural childbirth and her own personal experience — “it was not as easy as my mom had promised,” and was her biggest fan, taking her photo on the red carpet and video taping her entire speech for their personal home videos.
Bill Horn and Scout Masterson came prepped with all of the latest must-have baby products on the market and proved their stellar daddy skills with their product demo for the crowd. The couple were happy to share all their daddy intel with the guests on-hand.
Giuliana shared one of her keys to keeping her look together as a working mom and her must-haves for Duke:
You’re at the Big City Moms “Biggest Baby Shower” on behalf of Born Free. What’s your secret to looking so polished – not frazzled – when you have a baby?
GR: When I work it’s a lot easier, so I’m very lucky. But when I’m home being a mom taking care of the baby, it’s easy to get lost and to forget about taking care of yourself. My secret is doing things that are quick. For instance, I don’t wash my hair everyday and blow dry because it takes time away from being with the baby. I try find things that make my life a lot easier.”
What are you baby must-haves for Duke?
GR: Absolutely, hands-down Born Free bottles. I’ve been using them since the very beginning, they are the safest and best bottles for him. We also just bought him a little float for the pool and his little legs go through and he’s obsessed, he loves the water. I love the Peek Plus Monitor by Summer Infant. Bill and I work a lot and I get to check in on him on my smartphone and I love it. I get to stalk my son (laughs).
