This past weekend, friends and family of actors Brooke Burke, 36, and David Charvet, 35, gathered at the Treehouse Social Club in Beverly Hills, CA, to shower the couple with well wishes at a blue-themed shower, hosted by Stride Rite.
Just in time for the shower, Brooke and David revealed that they were expecting a boy and that was evident, as guests sipped Blue Hypnotiq cocktails and took in the beautiful blue-themed decor. The Vanilla Bake Shop created a cupcake tower topped off with an adorable pair of Stride Rite Shoes.

Brooke’s mom Donna shared how she was a long time fan of the brand and buying Stride Rite Shoes was a bit a of a family tradition. In her letter to the company she said:
When my children were born, it was Stride Rite or nothing. Although Buster Brown was a big competitor, we never strayed. From the soft sole shoes at their age of 7 months to at least pre-school, we made it a family affair.
I have 10 grandchildren and a 2-year-old great grandson. I bought them all their first pair of shoes…yes, Stride Rite! Somehow I always thought that my mom was looking down at me saying,"Donnie, don’t buy the kids anything but Stride Rite. It’s the best!
Brooke looked just beautiful in a purplish-blue top and proud dad David was beaming as they checked out the baby boy shoes. Daughter Heaven Rain, 13 months, smiled excitedly for the camera as she got a chance to try out the pink half of the Valco "Boy Meets Girl" Special edition Twin Trimode stroller that Brooke and David received courtesy of Valco, Stroller Mama and Lets Go Strolling. She seemed ready to roll just as soon as her little brother makes his appearance.
Other gifts that the couple received included onesies from Besitos, a Cariboo folding changing table and Svan Scooter, and a Lillebaby Eurotote. Brooke also received an Erin Condren Organizing Calendar, a gift certificate for a maternity photo session from Linnea Lenkus Studios, a Peg Perego highchair, clothes and blankets from Petite Bateau and Baby Gap, a Silver Cross Dazzle stroller, clothing (for her) from Rory Beca and Chiarakruza Maternity,a complete nursery design from Katy Mimari and Caden Lane, and a collection of soft soled booties from IsaBooties.
