"I can't wait to be a mom and hold this little baby in my arms," Spelling tells PEOPLE
To celebrate the upcoming birth of their first child together, Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott welcomed around 50 guests to a coed baby shower on Saturday afternoon at Elixir Tonic & Tea in West Hollywood.
“We’re so excited to share this special time with our friends,” McDermott told PEOPLE. “We can’t wait to meet the little man. We feel him kicking all the time and we’re so eager to finally see him.”
The couple revealed to PEOPLE in December that they are expecting a boy, whose middle name will be Aaron after Spelling’s father, legendary TV producer Aaron Spelling, who died last year. The baby is due in April.
Guests at the event included Spelling’s Beverly Hills 90210 pal Jennie Garth and her So NotTORIous costar Loni Anderson. Spelling’s mother Candy, with whom she’s had a falling out, was not there.
Spelling, looking radiant in a blue mini-dress, happily let her friends rub her belly. “I’ve loved being pregnant, but I’m ready to give birth,” she told PEOPLE with a laugh. “I can’t wait to be a mom and hold this little baby in my arms.”
The blue-themed party was sponsored by Tupperware and planned by Jo Gartin of Love Luck and Angels. “They wanted the party colors to mimic their baby’s turquoise blue and chocolate brown nursery,” said Gartin, who decorated the event with white amaryllis in turquoise vases, blue glass lanterns and hundreds of votive candles.
The menu, presented on blue Etch-a-Sketch trays, featured childhood favorites such as grilled cheese sandwiches, tuna melts, miniature corn dogs and pigs in a blanket, as well as an all-blue dessert menu that included blueberry popsicles.
The shower, which was filmed for Spelling’s new Oxygen reality show Tori & Dean: Inn Love, ended around 7 p.m. when guests left with an exclusive gift bag produced by The Silver Spoon, including items such as Too Faced Lip Injection, a $600 pearl bracelet from pearlparadise.com and an InphantElefant baby blanket.
