Fergie Throws Herself a Baby Shower (& She's Already Had 2!)

Say What!? 13

FergieI think it's safe to say that Fergie is excited about the impending arrival of her son. This weekend she attended yet another baby shower to celebrate the big event, and that makes three.

Her first two showers were thrown by friends. There was a "gayby shower" thrown by her gay best friends on July 28 filled with stars, drag queens, and fun for all. Then on August 11, she attended a smaller, more intimate celebration with members of the Black Eyed Peas and others.

The third one, held this past weekend, was thrown by a most unexpected party -- Fergie herself.

According to Us Weekly, she invited close friends to the celebration at Petit Ermitage in West Hollywood Saturday. Guests enjoyed a sit-down dinner, drinks, and a photo booth. One thing that was drastically different from both of her other showers -- there were no celebrities there. Other than dad-to-be, Josh Duhamel, there were no big names at all. It sounds like it was lovely, and Fergie looked gorgeous in this picture she tweeted with the caption "earth mommy."

Is three baby showers overkill? In some cases maybe, but for many moms-to-be, there are multiple showers. Family wants to throw one, and co-workers another. There are neighbors and college friends and others from various aspects of our lives who all want to celebrate the baby's arrival ... if we're lucky. Rather than having one huge blowout, sometimes smaller events are more intimate and special. And well, she is Fergie.

Also, while I'm sure it goes against every etiquette book out there, I love that Fergie also threw her own shower. She has the money to buy whatever the baby needs, so it obviously wasn't about raking in the gifts. It seems more like a genuine expression of her excitement to become a mother and wanting to share it with the people in her life. Good for her, and if she wants to have four more baby showers, then so be it.

Do you think three is too many baby showers? How many did you/will you have?

None of these sound like a 'traditional' baby shower... all mostly her friends says, Yay! And her last one appears more of an excitement sharing dinner. She's happy and excited- let her throw as many get-togethers as she wants to celebrate!


It's not uncommon for co-workers to throw a little to-do in an office environment for a pregnant co-worker... it isn't a real shower, per se, but a mini-celebration.

I had one at work, one thrown by DH's family, one by my second job and one by my family.


Loved every one of them

When I was pregnant with my first son I had 2. One was thrown by my MIL and the other by my mom.

I didn't even get a baby shower! I was 3k miles away from all family & friends while pregnant. Yes, I could've or they could've flown that far to throw me one but I felt in unnecessary at the time. We instead had a "welcome to world party" while my mom was visiting after our son was born (it was also my bday party since he was born 11 days before me). But with our next you better believe I will be having a shower, even if its another boy, I feel I need to experience a shower!

We tried to have a Skype baby shower for our youngest daughter, and not one person showed up or sent her a gift. Hubby & I ordered everything on her baby registry, and she was just as pleased with that. And yeah, I'm just waiting for the next invite to a family baby/bridal /whatever shower.

My side of the family did all of the big stuff that was really needed big time... @ his brothers g/f baby show whom both were working his mom bought pretty much the whole nursery for them plus like 15 outfits... but now my kid in almost five and her dad and his whole family have nothing to do with her at all....

a Celebration of an impending life for a mom to be? HEck yeah! There shouldn't be a max number on how many showers a mom to be or dad to be should get...tradition for so many things went out the window decades ago....its a new era and people that love the family to be able to show their support, love and flair for parties however many times that they want....

With my son I had 3 showers. Work, mom, and inlaws. With my dd I had none. But it wasn't for lack of trying. I kept ruining the party. Lol Constant labor brought on by hyperemesis. Oh well.
