Talk about spring showers!

On Thursday, stars showed up in full force to attend Big City Mom’s The Biggest Baby Shower Ever event in Hollywood.

Expectant mama Beverley Mitchell joined James Van Der Beek and his wife Kimberly to take in all the latest and greatest parenting products on the market, with fun demos and daddy duty tips from The Guncles, Bill Horn and Scout Masterson.

Glowing in a ruffled ombré maxi and white jean jacket, Mitchell admitted to feeling “a little ginormous” while waiting for the upcoming April arrival of her baby girl.

But the mom-to-be didn’t let her burgeoning belly slow her down: she toured the entire venue before mingling and sharing tidbits about her pregnancy with other guests.

Van Der Beek played the role of doting husband, supporting his wife by snapping pictures and recording her as she shared her natural birth stories with the crowd.

“It was not as easy as my mom had promised,” she quipped about delivering daughter Olivia, 2, and son Joshua, 1.

Also on hand? New mom Giuliana Rancic, who worked with Born Free to set up a meet and greet where she could chat with fellow mamas (and fans!) about everything from her adorable son Duke and her mommy must-haves to her experiences trying to balance her personal and professional lives.

Poor Guilianna looks so sick. I hope she is doing okay.

She is not sick. No worries! She is doing just fine and is very happy and healthy.

sarlabelle- To me she looks like she always does. Maybe a little tired, but considering she has a baby, that’s pretty understandable! 🙂

I love her! Just wish that they would do something to add body to her hair…. it’s not the darker coloring, but just the fact that her looks so stringy now…. I know being a mom is probably taking up more of her time, but c’mon G!!! Don’t loose your MamJo!
