With only a few more weeks to go until daughter Laiyah is born, singer Monica Brown, 32, and husband Phoenix Suns star Shannon Brown, 27, celebrated their little one’s arrival with a carnival-themed baby shower Saturday at the home of Jermaine Durpri in Atlanta.

“It was very whimsical, just like a Disney princess movie and just as I had envisioned it,” Monica told PEOPLE of the all pink fête. “There was so much love in the room and everybody had a great time.”

A white horse named Rock Star and a white pony named Lil’ Man greeted close to 200 guests, including Ludacris, Nene and Greg Leakes and Keri Hilson.

The event, which was planned by Mindy Weiss, also featured stilt walkers, jugglers and a miniature circus tent.

DJ Mars spun everything from house music to gospel while guests dined on comfort food like sweet potato fries, corn fritters and grilled cheese.

To top it off, there was a carousel cake by Perfect Wedding Cake that slowly turned around. “It was strawberry velvet and tasted just as good as it looked,” says Monica.

The baby’s name was revealed to guests on the pink glittery invite designed by Sandi Spells Design and the singer says she chose the name because, “it was girly, feminine and picked by her daughter’s godmother so it has special meaning.”

The R&B singer-songwriter is already mom to sons Rocko, 8, and Romelo Montez, 5, while the Phoenix Suns guard is dad to son Shannon Christopher. She says she is very excited to have a little girl join their world.

“I know everything about WrestleMania and Tonka Trucks so I’m excited to share shopping dates and manis and pedis with her. But I’m really looking forward to teaching her about life,” says Monica. “I want to be an example to her like my mother was to me.”

ERICA2 on

I’m so happy for Monica and Shannon congrats on baby Laiyah Love…I am sure baby girl will be both beautiful and talented given her gene pool! Monica is absolutely glowing and stunning. The baby shower was over the top but that’s to be expected from a grammy winner and NBA champ! Best of LUCK in the weeks to come :)

Diedra on

Her youngest son looks just like her cousin, Luducris – amazing. I am so happy for her and her family. God Bless!

Ava Hill on

Its their money. Im sure they know what to do with it. Its the first girl so you have to go all out!

Daisy on

I giggle at him holding her stomach. Generic!!! Obviously she’s pregnant. Celebrity or not the entire ‘belly touching’ grosses me out. And I have have 2 kids.

Toni on

Congratulations!!!! Oh what a beautiful family.

Bethanie F on

Kelli on

Cute name. But what’s the pronunciation? Because the way I’m pronouncing it, it’s like saying, LIE-AH….(liar)

Love everything how sweet and fun!

They’re such a beautiful family! Love Monica out of all the young singer that have come and gone, left unseen, she’s always remained relivent, humble and a mainstay!

missdiva on

Crystal on

YAY!!! A little girl to add to 3 brothers!!! How exciting!! I was hoping for a girl for Monica and Shannon! Monica looks GORGEOUS and is POSITIVELY GLOWING!!! Congratulations to the entire family! That little girl is going to be sooooo loved and protected by her whole family!!! Love them! :)

JE on

Crazy what people will do for a baby shower, just stupid.

Anonymous on

The child might have no interest in manis and pedis; and sometimes you get a boy who DOES have an interest.

What puzzles me is the need to give a child/adult a name that will always be misspelled. In this case, it will not only be misspelled, but people won’t even know how to pronounce it. I notice one poster didn’t know how to spell Looduhkrissss (yes I know the actual spelling, both of the real word and of the artist’s name).

The fetus isn’t even a human yet and already they label: pink shoes, pink balloons, etc. Seems so sad to me. It’s a person, not a brand.

LC on

I want to think the baby name is cute, but I can’t figure out how to pronounce it.

Brandi on

Really mature…

Marquita Hobbs on

LATOYAH DERRICK on

IT SOUNDS LIKE SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST HATING…SMH OH ND THAT MEANS SHAKING MY HEAD;-) ANYWAY NOBODY NEED TO WORRY ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY THEY SPENT IF A DIME OF Y’ALLS WASN’T CONTRIBUTED TO THE BABY SHOWER ND SPEAKING OF THE BABY WHY ARE Y’ALL SO CONCERNED WITH THEIR DAUGHTER NAME, YOUR NOT GONNA SEE, CALL, YELL, OR GOTTA SPELL HER NAME, THE 1S WHO ARE FACTORS IN HER LIFE WILL KNOW IT ND THATS ALL THAT MATTERS, FAMILY, GOD-PARENTS, FRIENDS, TEACHERS, ANY ONE WHO WILL BE A PART OF HER LIFE…NOT SOCIAL MEDIA HATERS;-) I HAVE 6 KIDS ND I DIDN’T HAVE 6 SHOWERS BUT THE 1S I DID HAVE WAS AWESOME ND MONEY WAS INVESTED TO CELEBRATE A LIFE COMING INTO THIS WORLD WITH PEOPLE WHO MATTER ND GIFT WERE EXCHANGE OUT OF LOVE ND APPRECIATION! SO DON’T BE MAD CAUSE Y’ALL PROBABLY DIDN’T HAVE 1, MAYBE ON THE NEXT PREGNANCY..LORD WILLING, YOU’LL GET TO EXPERIENCE THE LOVE ALSO;-)

The baby’s name is produced lay-uh like lay and ughh laiyah

paula walker on

The baby’s name is pronounced Lay-ah…like the princess from star wars… i think its cute…considering hollywood names like Apple, Pilot,Rumor, Scout…etc Good Luck on Your baby Monica & Shannon..wish ur family much love and many blessings :)

kay on

The babies name is pronounced LAY-YAH…Also the baby’s hearts starts to beat at 8 weeks. What makes it not human? SMH Ignorance! :/ Congrats to Monica and Shannon! I wonder how the first year birthday party will be! LOL :)

Ash! on

By looking at the name it seems to be pronounced “Lay-yah” but spelled a different way. I am happy for Monica she has a beautiful family! I am sure her daughter will be beautiful, also.
*I also dont think they are worried about the cost of the baby shower; they clearly can afford it!*

KJ on

To all you negative people who only have bad, inappropriate things to say about this…shame on u! It’s not your. Money so why. Are u worried about how they spend theirs. Their not asking you to take. Care of their child so just be happy for them! It’s a girl so of course she’s going to make everything pink but she’s not new to this. If her daughter doesn’t like mani pedis then she will learn to give HER daughter what she needs that she does like. Get over yourselves, just because your life sucks doesn’t mean theirs has to, too!

kia on

Monica it was beautiful I’m glad you have your little girl now y’all enjoy your bundle of joy baby shower was nice.true fan

Anonymous on

I believe the name to be pronounced Lai = Lay+ yah= ya…Lay-ya Love. Which is a beautiful name.

Smartypants on

This is my 3 yr. olds name and its pronounced Lai (lay) yah(yah)

Ria2013 on

I absolutely LOVE LOVE Monica! I think she’s so POSTIVE and SWEET! I love how she keeps GOD in everything!! If she wants to have a extravagant baby shower… GUESS WHAT?! She can!! Because they can afford it! Smh some people have nothing else better to do! Congrats to Monica& Shannon on their baby girl! And she’s a true example that through heartache and 2kids there is a good man that will treat you like a queen! Love them! God Bless!

jess on

Monica I am happy for you and your family. Be blessed honey. Don’t worry about all these negative comments you know what’s best for you and your life.

Smartypants on

If you don’t like the name maybe your not intelligent enough to understand it. Just don’t name your kid that simple as that. Judgmentalasses

jt on

Everyone on here thats downing the couple are absolutely lame. Get a life and quit hating because they have one and seem to be enjoying it. If they want to blow all they money on wiping there a** ,thats there buisness, who cares. And the name is clearly pronounced. Laiyah(Lay-yah), simple. Quit having simple minds and think outside the box. Smh.

angee on

Damn…..its always someone beeeningso negative…….its there money they can do what the hell they want to do…grown up….

Domie on

Come on now people, it’s like princess Lay-yah… Get it?

JB on

The fetus… Umm it wasn’t called a fetus shower, it’s called a baby shower. She mentioned those things as a possible platform to relate to her child on. Emphasis on HER CHILD. If you feel a “fetus” shouldn’t be labeled, you make sure Your “fetus” isn’t labeled. Unless a child is abused or in danger, it’s no one’s business to say anything about how the child is raised, you didn’t birth him/her and you’re not paying for them to be raised.

Shay on

Her name is Layah she just has an “I” in it. I think the spelling is cute. The name was picked out by her godmother which is Tiny and she’s basically giving her a similar name to the daughter her and T.I loss which was Leyah. I have saw baby showers more over the top than this and done by people that are nowhere near celebrities. We as a people should stop trying to always point out the negative in things.

Patrice on

Seems like you are mad that u can afford a baby shower like this… Lol

surreal on

Stfu to the idiots acting like they know more about how this couple decides to celebrate the impending birth their child or that childs name. Like seriously? How about get yourselves some talent or an actual carwer and then you can do things how you like. Internet so full of idiots that cant even hold their own stop hating!

Fancy on

Some of these ppl so stupid I’m kml at them bc it’s her money. Either b happy, leave something positive or shut up. Dang!!

Anonymous on

ACTUALLY I THINK IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL SHOWER BUT IM NOT WEALTHY SO I WOULDNT OF WENT OUT OF BUDGET LIKE THAT.IM A SIMPLE PERSON AND I BELIEVE N UNEXPENSIVE TRADITIONAL SHOWERS.

Susanne on

Not human? You’re kidding, right?

Kam on

The baby’s name is Laiyah (pronounced: Lay-ah)…DUH! If you can’t pronounce that, you must be illiterate or dumb.

Blah on

It’s pronounced “LAY-AH

Tracey on

Congrats monica and shannon! Am sure she didnt pay for the shower herself, and even if she did its her and her husband’s money! You people sound so ignorant…….

shay on

LAIYAH- (lay-ya-h) should be fairly easy for people to say and pronounce one it’s said.

Happy For Her on

Only broke people would complain about how others well off spend their money. I’m sure her kids college funds were taken care of when they were in the wound. People need to just stfu and be happy for others in their time of joy. Misery loves company. Go be miserable alone and sign off the internet.

shay on

At least one can hope lol.

Leslie on

is Laiyah pronounce Lay-yah or Leia ( as in Princess Leia from star wars) ?

Lissa on

Congrats to Monica and Shannon. I’m sure that she will just as beautiful as her mom.

desh3ll on

I Love it! And your shower is gorgeous I would have done the same I love family and going all out when they comes over and I pray for a healthy baby girl

desh3ll on

Haters will hater ballers will ball as I guarantee majority of the haters is black! Wow !

Ni'Kole on

The name is pronounced Layah it’s also Erica Campbell from MaryMary daughters name and what the hell wrong with yall negitive ass people nobody loved yall as a kid and you’re jealous damn get a life really. Its her damn baby get over it she has every right to be excited silly asses

Tee on

Exactly… They just bitter bc nobody threw them a babyshower.. Some ppl just don’t know when to STFU

I on

I don’t know how you pronounce the baby’s name but it reminds me of aaliyah. Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of her death and she and monica were good friends. I think the baby’s godmother chose a version of that name. Anyway, Beautiful family and Congrats!

Calvin C. on

Monica and her happy are gorgeous. It’s so refreshing to see a beautiful black family without the drama. It’s so sad that most of the people commenting negative are BLACK but can’t stand to someone HAPPY. Monica you are beautiful and it shows I wish you and your family many blessings and thank you People for illustrating this lovely image.

Tee on

Now, you are a special kind of stupid.. Her baby is a fetus smh really…. How many kids u had/or have.. If not, please don’t reproduce because Monica only have 3week left on her pregnancy, truth and believe, its a baby inside her not a “fetus”

hood on

Monica has enough money to send all her children to college… Btw age has plenty to send your kids too! PowPow

Tamoria on

Monica you are a very special person I have been listening to since I was little and I pray that u have a smooth birth and many blessings for u and your Family Love You

ricky bobby on

Congrats to Mo and Shannon on a beautiful baby shower and even more beautiful baby girl to come. And for those who can’t pronounce the name…its Laiyah (Lay-Yah). Similar to the ending of Aaliyah’s name but pronounced like Princess Leia.

It’s pronounced: LAY – A

Congrats Mo and Shan. Everything looks on point.

Beautiful! And the pronunciation is probably Laiyah (LAY’yah)…I’m guessing but I don’t have to call her :) beautiful affair for a beautiful family! Congrats on the new addition!!

Jacqueline on

Congrads to the both of you, you really have a beautiful family. MONICA YOU ARE A INSPIRATION AND A LOVING MOM YOUR SONS & DAUGHTER ARE LUCKY TO HAVE YOU

Brenda on

So many negative comments. Jealousy does not become you. This woman & man has earned their own money & the right to do whatever the hell they want to with it. The same as you can do whatever you choose to do with your pennies. I’m sure these kids college education is paid for and some. If its not in you to make a positive comment then don’t comment at all.

sweets on

Usually I dont like to bash comments but this has to be the stupidest comment I have ever read. “The fetus isnt even a human yet”? Wtf. So what makes it human? Coming out of the birth canal? Cut the cord and suddenly its a human?

Renee on

I think it’s pronounced Lay-ah like Erica’s daughter from Mary Mary. Congrats 2 dem both safe deliberyx

So Happy for Them on

Such an awesome shower! She is so blessed to be loved by so many. And BTW she has had a recording contract since the age of 18 and her husband plays in the NBA I’m sure this baby shower was only a drop in the bucket. Go get your life and stop being jealous of hers for all your naysayers!

Jennifer on

Beautiful family and a gorgeous baby shower. I’m extremely happy for both Monica and Shannon and their growing family. She is truly a sweet person inside and out. On another note, it sickens me that people get on here and think that she shouldn’t spend HER money on a carnival themed baby shower for HER child. This child, as well as her other children, will never have to want for anything while they are growing up. Either be genuinely happy for them or don’t say anything at all!

rocky on

im not quite sure what all the confusion is about with the name pronounciation….just by looking at it you can clearly see its pronounced Lay-ah

Jazzie Karla on

Good luck and God bless..

i love u girl make a sweet andsound bby

lori on

im confused as to why ppl keep saying shes stupid…I assume because they see they spent a load of cash on a baby shower BUT if I remember correctly Monica’s been rich more than half her life. Shes been in the biz 20 years. Im sure her finances are straight. Not to mention her husband is ALSO a multi millionaire. im sure a few rented ponies will not put a dent in their pockets. Geeesh. If you think this is something you shoulda seen their wedding.

Hurry up and have miss princess because we are ready for another album lol just kiddin but we are waiting… Much love and blessings.

Lisa on

Then your illiterate and need to go back to school. When the “i” is before the “e” it makes the e sound dummy so it would be pronounced as “Lee- ah”

sandi on

kk- My thoughts exactly! If the baby were born now, she’d more than likely survive (considering the article says she’s due in a few weeks). How does that qualify as not human?!

Anonymous (the one who asked why you’d give a baby a name that most people can’t pronounce or spell properly and claimed said baby isn’t human!)- I have both issues with my last name, and it’s really not that big of a deal.

You just develop strategies to deal with it (I, for example, automatically assume that anyone who needs to write/type my name for something isn’t going to know how to spell it and do it for them. And when it comes to mispronunciation, I gently correct people if it’s really important they get it right. Otherwise I just let it go!). A sense of humor helps, too. :)

Bottomline: Having a difficult to spell/pronounce name may be annoying at times, but it’s hardly the end of the world!

Patrice on

Matter of opinion: as a mother of 4 my husband always loved to hold my belly pic or not and I loved it!!! As for the one who said save some for the college fund . Shannon just made 9 mill in 3 yrs in Phoenix . I’m sure it’s plenty college find around. People love to throw shots instead of being happy for people. My blessings began to flow when I could be happy for others TRY IT!!! WORKS WONDERS . And the baby’s name is beautiful is pronounced Lay-ah (how hard is that!!! Congrats to the brown family

Trey on

I believe it is pronounced Lay-yah

Robert Samuel on

It amazes me that people are so negative about a baby shower?

@Shannon – hello Monica has bee a performer since the mid 90′s and has never filed bankrupcy, posed nude or been caught up in scandal like other singers who shall remain nameless. Im sure she could buy you an education and your whole family too!!

@Guesswhat – Stupid people post stupid sh*t i.e. you

Yeezus on

…..my husband, a nurse, just saved someone’s life the other day. That being said, we barely get by. Nurses, teachers, police officers, even doctors don’t make anywhere near what these actors/actresses/musicians/singers do. The problem with our society is that these “stars” are held in such high regard. Higher than those who save lives. Higher than those who teach our youth. These are the real stars. (Comment from an RN).

Rhonda on

There are some very negative comments. It just makes you look jealous. I’m very happy for Monica and her husband. I’m sure that little girl will be spoiled rotten….LOL

Love love you n your family monica!!!’

Just My Opinion on

Over the top or not, we pay nothing towards her baby showers. Their money, their business.

Sandra on

That’s how you do pregnancy, she looks beautiful and the boys are just as cute as can be and Shannon is alright too.

Not liking something/someone or disagreeing doesn’t mean one is jealous, envious, a hater or hateful. All it means is they have an opinion that differs from you.

Sharon on

Maybe you should go back to school, cuz there is no “e” in the name for the “i ” to come before…smh.

Wow, The Only Thing I Can Say Right Now Is STUNNING! That Baby Is Extremely Blessed! Congrats To Monica & Shannon Once Again. I’m Overly Excited Like I Personally Know Mo, Lol.

I am amazed to know that a young female artist known as Monica is the best role model to our generation of young ladies of all ages. I have been a fan since the age of 14 now I am 31. I just love Monica for how she shows grace, beauty, and love. I am inspired!
