Ciara announced that she was pregnant with her second child in October, and this past weekend, the singer and her football star husband, Russell Wilson, threw a baby shower to celebrate the bundle of joy's impending arrival. Based on the photos Ciara has shared, the affair was an ethereal, all-white celebration with more flower crowns that Coachella.
Event planner Mindy Weiss helped pull together the extravagant shindig, which featured catering by cult burger chain Shake Shack, a beautifully decorated tent, pristine white outfits worn by guests, and those flower crowns galore. Serena Williams and La La Anthony were reportedly among the attendees. According to E! News the shower was held at a private residence in Los Angeles.
Ciara shared a few photos by photographer Daniel Mogg from the day on Instagram. One shot shows Ciara surrounded by 18 friends, all wearing white ensembles and floral headpieces. She also posted a few photos of herself, which brought out the gorgeous details on her airy, floor-length, bohemian-inspired dress, and a picture of Wilson, who was outfitted in a white sweatshirt, white pants, and white sneakers with gold buckles. In place of a blossoming headpiece, he opted for aviator sunglasses as an accessory.
E! says the couple decided to make the affair co-ed, going against baby shower convention—unsurprising, considering that even Ciara's rendition of the classic "nude pregnant celebrity" portrait was an all-hands-on-deck affair. Ciara, Wilson, and her 2-year-old son, Future, recently posted for a half-nude family photo shoot, prompting the Internet to explode with memes. (Ciara has since deleted the image from her Instagram account.)
