Brooke Shields' baby shower

03/28/2006 at 08:00 AM ET

Brookebelly Rowangrier Brooke Shields, 40, granted People magazine access to her March 11th baby shower for her second daughter Grier, due in May. The bash was Moroccan themed, from the candles down to the food. Among the gifts Brooke received was an Aaron Basha baby shoe charm bracelet.

Older daughter Rowan also made her presence known at the party, even though she didn’t attend – she had drawn a picture of herself and Grier (see second photo) that guests were asked to write messages on for Brooke and husband Chris. Brooke also admits that Rowan doesn’t quite understand the whole baby sister concept yet, saying, "[When I told her the baby is going to live in our house,] Rowan replied, ‘The baby’s going to live in my house?!’" Still, she’s helping mom decorate Grier’s room and is excited for the new arrival.

From Storknet:

Q. Is it improper to have a baby shower for your second baby, especially if the sex is different?
A. It is never improper to have a baby shower. A shower is so much more than gifts. It is an opportunity to gather family and friends together to celebrate the beginning of a new life. The birth of a baby is a joyous occasion, and it is always acceptable to celebrate it. If other family members or friends are concerned about it being improper to have a baby shower for a second (or more) child, there are ways to take the focus off the gifts. If the second child is a different sex than the first, it would be fun to host a “It’s a Girl” or “It’s a Boy” party, where guests bring gender specific gifts. Or, if the mom-to-be truly does not need anything for the new baby, forego gifts altogether and just gather to celebrate. Another option is to host a casserole shower or a pampering mom shower.

In a recent issue of People magazine, Brooke explained that this shower was actually more of a dinner party to celebrate the upcoming arrival. She also pointed out that her male friends were invited, so it was by no means a traditional baby shower. People did bring gifts for the new baby but they also brought gifts for her daughter Rowan. I think the whole things sounds like it was a very plesant and tasteful event.

If babies are born with a few years of each other I think it is pretty indulgent to have another shower. Please, the only reason for a shower is the gifts and it is pretty greedy to expect people to give again. An exception would be if your second is a multiple birth.
