Tiffani Thiessen Celebrates Her Baby Shower

With only weeks left before her May due date, Tiffani Thiessen celebrated with a baby shower on Sunday afternoon at her and husband Brady Smith‘s home outside Los Angeles.

The White Collar star welcomed about 65 guests to the outdoor party, hosted by former 90210 costar Jason Priestley‘s wife Naomi.

Guests enjoyed a cake from Hansen’s Cakes and a gift bag that included goodies from baby company BabyBjรถrn.

Apart from stocking up on presents – among her gifts was The Hot Mom to Be Handbook by Jessica Denay – Thiessen has also finalized plans for the birth.

“I’m going to give a Girl Scout effort to hypnobirthing,” the actress, 36, tells Pregnancy magazine about the method that uses hypnosis to promote natural childbirth.

“I’m really excited about it. That’s my plan, but my husband and I are both very, very open to however the child is supposed to come out. Knock on wood it all goes well. I’m not one to judge any woman on how they choose to give birth. It’s individual and I think everyone’s different.”

As for the sex of the baby, Thiessen and her husband are keeping it a secret until the baby’s arrival.

“I couldn’t wait to find out,” she recently told PEOPLE.

“Are you kidding? My husband I were way too excited to wait. We needed to know right away.”

Thiessen will grace the cover of Pregnancy‘s May issue, on newsstands April 13.

gianna on

she was always the most gorgeous girl on 90210 and saved by the bell, and still so beautiful. I love her, she seems so sweet and nice. I have a feeling it’s a girl, I hope it’s born on my birthday, i’m a may baby too.

Teresa on

Congratulations!!! I love her, she is such an awesome actress and seems like such a sweet girl. I’ve been a huge fan of hers since she was on Saved By The Bell and i loved her on BH 90210!!!! She is such a gorgeous woman, i know she’ll be a great mother!

Samantha on

Congrats Tiffani Im Voting that its a girl. Congrats to them both Good luck to the whole smith family

Rye on

She is just glowing!!! She looks sooooo happy! I am betting a boy only based on her pregnancy cravings. She said she craved a ton of red meat…which I know is an old wives tale for predicting a boy and even though I never buy into that stuff, i’ll use it to guess this time. haha.

I never understand why people find out but won’t share it with there friends and family though?? I knew a couple people who did this and I just didn’t understand the logic. If you are finding out because YOU couldn’t wait for the surprise, why should all your friends and family have to wait? I don’t know. It doesn’t make sense to me.
Either way, this baby is going to be a cutie! ๐Ÿ™‚

Renee on

Wow Tiffani looks amazing! I am so excited for her. I have been her biggest fan since I was a kid. I know she will be an amazing mom and that kid will be so beautiful! I think shes having a girl. I think her family and friends know what it is and shes just keeping it quiet to the public. I did get a clue that’s it a girl. shhhhh lol

Alisha on

Geesh, does this girl ever take a bad pic? She’s more gorgeous than she always is. Always have liked her. I’m guess a girl, too. Best of luck to them!

Nicole on

She looks fabulous! Good luck Tiffani!!

Amy on

She looks absolutely beautiful…I love seeing her back on TV’s White Collar. Congrats!!

Heather on

Good for her ! Hypnobirthing is WONDERFUL ! Really. I have three children, and the two births that i used hypnobirthing for were so much more relaxed and empowering. The water-hypnobirth combination is really special, and if medically possible, I think everyone should at least give it a go and see if it works for them :o)

Christy on

Tiffani is a beautiful pregnant mommy

Karm on

Tiffani-Amber looks wonderful! What a glow!!

mom of 3 on

Pregnancy agrees with her by far! She radiates beauty! My husband and I found out the sex of our three children, and only shared the first one. I think that is part of the fun of being pregnant, hearing everybody else with what they believe you will have. I also admire her for believing that every woman is different and not judging them by their choice of birth. Congrats to her and her husband!

Heidi on

Saw she and her husband on “Design Star” and they were absolutely so sweet and adorable. Best wishes to them! I’m sending you easy labor prayers, Tiffani!

Dana on

Oh I love Tiffani, I think she is wonderful. I’m putting my vote in for a girl too ๐Ÿ™‚ She will be a great mom, I’m excited & happy for her & her husband!

Mel on

Well, I am so jealous of the way she looks! Who looks like that pregnant?! She is gorgeous! She seems to be so normal and everyday I just love that about her! I absolutely can’t wait to see if she has a son or daughter!!!!!

guinevere on

She is SO darn cute and always has been! They’re going to have a gorgeous baby. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sarah Marie on

I’ve always been a huge fan of her since Kelly in Saved by the Bell! She makes the cutest pregnant woman!

Lexi on

Ms. Thiessen is absolutely glowing & so pretty. I have a feeling they are having a girl. She is so good on White Collar.

steph on

Rye I just want to point out that we are not her family and friends and therefore why would she tell us? You dont know whether they did tell family so its really not that weird.

Leah on

Congratulations to Tiffani!!! My mom and I own an organic business and we make several items including diaper bags, and we were fortunate enough to be able to give one to give Tiffani an organic diaper bag to celebrate her baby shower! I hope she enjoys it!!! You can see the one she got at organiluxeliving d o t c o m. ๐Ÿ™‚
