Jessica Simpson celebrates baby shower with friends and family

Washington: Jessica Simpson’s family and friends threw her a baby shower as she awaits the birth of her daughter.

On Sunday afternoon, her nearest and dearest had gathered in Los Angeles for the party, organized by celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss.

Simpson wore her hair down with soft braids around her face and sported a light blue dress that showed off her pregnant belly.

She was joined by Jessica Alba and sister Ashlee and when the soon-to-be-aunt arrived with son Bronx, Simpson greeted them outside the party.

“Jessica looked pretty and very happy,” People quoted an eyewitness as saying.

“She’s so excited to be a mom. She can’t wait to meet her little girl,” a friend added.
