Jaime King and husband Kyle Newman celebrated the upcoming October arrival of their son with a baby shower at Soho House in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The Star Wars-themed bash was also star-studded, with Jessica Alba, Selma Blair and Ashley Madekwe in attendance, along with King’s Hart of Dixie costars Rachel Bilson, Wilson Bethel and Claudia Lee.

King, who wore an Asos Maternity dress with pastel flowers and lace details, is quite proud of her own baby bump, and was spotted affectionately rubbing the belly of fellow mom-to-be Teresa Palmer.

The actress took the opportunity to give a heartfelt thanks to her guests. “It’s amazing how much joy this baby has already brought Kyle and me,” she said. “We are touched by the support and love of all our friends and family.”

During the party, guests snacked on appetizers and sipped champagne while King, 34, opened gifts for the baby, including a Nuna highchair. The actress also received a diaper cake from Alba’s own line, The Honest Company.

Bilson was spotted getting crafty in the DIY area where guests could write personal messages on little cloth squares for the happy couple to take home.

King was overheard joking around with Bethel, “It’s baby city right now! You’re next!”

That is the dumbest cake I have ever seen! LOL

Lauren on

@Ann i thought it was pretty cool and unique

Ashley on

Why do you care what her cake looks like? Pretty mean.

amy123 on

if i was a celebrity, i wouldn’t open or accept gifts. i would ask that my guests donate to a charity, in lieu of gifts.

Star on

Star Wars FTW! ;D

Tee on

Agree w/ Ann….the cake is very cheesy!!! It looks like a family member or friend w/ very lil experience tried to make it! If I was the couple I would of been very disappointed and I love Star Wars!!!

chloe on

That cake is tight!

Crystal on

This article sounds like these celebs paid someone to write it! It’s way to detailed and I’m pretty sure no one gives a care!

Just saying.... on

I don’t even know who this couple is but they are very cute together. She looks very pretty and sweet in her dress. Think back to last week of that picture of Fergie in that horrible dress she had on!

Rai on

Her cake may be horrible but love the maternity dress! Josh Duhamel’s wife needs help with her trashy look maternity clothing.

bebe on

You can do that as a regular person, too. Or only rich people care about charity.

zab on

Ok, so we can’t moan about Kim K anymore so lets go after Jaimie’s cake or Fergie’s dress. Really? Just be happy for her, ok? If not, don’t read AND don’t write. Simple as that! And yes she’s a celebrity but why does she have to give her stuff to charity? She does’nt make 20 Million a movie and those gifts we’re bought for HER by family and friends. I say enjoy!! :)

I hope the champagne was non-alcoholic (or that Jaime, Teresa, and any other pregnant women there skipped it if it was!)!

amy123- And how do you know they didn’t donate some or all of the gifts to charity after the shower?

mobile20 on

Cool, weird cake. I go out of my way to avoid baby showers, but this one seems like fun!

nlb on

You have to be kind of an ass to pick on a cake!

Guest -AB on

Aw I think this sounds like a sweet celebration, very down-to-earth by HWood standards. They look cute and happy :) I like their pocket square idea. Cant wait to for Heart of Dixie to start back! I love her and Rachel both! Super cute show.

Lyoness on

That looks like a fun baby shower. That was a cool cake.

Crystal, I care, as do others based on the comments.

It constantly amazes me the nitpicking people do, bashing, and insulting people do.

Sun on

That’s very tacky Baby Shower cake I ever seen! What are they thinking?

Heids on

Ehmmm, it is not a real cake, you do realize that Ann?

Heids on

Exactly zab!

zab- “If not, don’t read AND don’t write. Simple as that!” But doing that would mean they couldn’t enjoy their favorite pastime: complaining about people they don’t even know! ;)

Agree with Lauren this is quite amazing and in fact a uniquely decorated cake for the couple
