DeAnna Pappas Stagliano is basking in all the sugar, spice and everything nice that comes along with a baby girl!
The former Bachelorette, who is expecting her first child with husband Stephen in early February, celebrated her baby shower with family and friends on Sunday with a pink-themed soiree hosted by Good Carma Studio.
“The shower was amazing! It was so beautiful and such a welcoming party for our little girl,” Stagliano, 32, tells PEOPLE.
For the baby bash, Pappas Stagliano was determined to show off her budding baby belly — and accomplished just that in a beautiful royal blue dress from A Pea in the Pod.
“It is maternity, but I didn’t feel like a big ol’ pregnant woman in it! I felt beautiful and like a proud mom-to-be in this dress,” she says. “I have only gained 26 pounds so far so I wanted a dress that accentuated my bump, but also still made me feel normal.”
