Haylie Duff is just a few weeks away from becoming a mom for the first time, and in true expectant-mother fashion she was treated to a lovely outdoor baby shower by her younger sister, Hilary Duff, and their mother Susan. Friends and family gathered at the sweet celebration a few weeks ahead of the birth of Haylie’s baby girl.
Among those who gathered to celebrate the impending arrival were Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Lauren Conrad. Guests spent the afternoon posing for playful pictures and getting creative assembling bouquets of fresh flowers and floral crowns for their hair. The ladies also enjoyed sweet treats, including little cupcakes, cake pops, macaroons and ice cream.
“Haylie was on cloud nine,” a source told People. “She is so excited to be a mom – you could see it all over her face.”
Both Haylie and Hilary and their friends shared a number of Instagram photos and Twitter shout-outs from the day, which also saw an appearance from Haylie’s fiancé, and the father-to-be, Matt Rosenberg, as well as Hilary’s son Luca, who will be three later this month.
Haylie, 30, is eagerly awaiting the arrival of her first child with Matt. The couple decided to postpone their wedding when they discovered that the Real Girls Kitchen host was pregnant, and they confirmed in December that they were expecting a baby girl.
“It’s pretty cool to think our daughter is going to be at our wedding,” Haylie said shortly afterwards. “We still talk about things we want to do (for the wedding), but it’s a big change with the baby coming. We’re just trying to focus on one thing first and then we’ll do it.”
Haylie and entrepreneur Matt announced their engagement in April after a year and a half of dating. “Matt just took me by total surprise and proposed… on April Fool’s Day of all days!” Haylie told her fans. “The moment was genuine and sweet (like him!) and I couldn’t wait to say yes!
“We are so excited and happy to share our wonderful new s with everyone!”
