Similar to the shower she had when she was pregnant with daughter Maxwell last year, it was an elaborate to-do, orchestrated by party planner Mindy Weiss. The theme was Tom Sawyer, but it incorporated lots of flowers – perhaps to help ease the admittedly girly Simpson into life as the mother of a little boy.
As she readied for the bash, Weiss shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the shower. It was of a weathered little red wagon filled with long blades of grass and flowers.
Among the guests enjoying the festivities at the co-ed event were Simpson’s mom, Tina, who helped coordinate the party, and little sister, Ashlee.
Pals in attendance included Jessica Alba (with husband Cash Warren), Chelsea Handler (with boyfriend André Balazs), hairstylist Ken Pavés, and the mom-to-be’s bestie CaCee Cobb, who is also pregnant.

People.com reported that partygoers noshed on comfort foods, including pigs in a blanket and grilled cheese sandwiches. Weiss told the website that the Thousand Island dressing at the salad bar was a special request from the guest of honor, who had been craving it.
As for gifts, the "Fashion Star" mentor scored all kinds of goodies for her baby, including a high chair, video monitor, BabyBjörn carrier, and bath toys, according to E! News. Alba was seen carrying a large "cake" made of baby supplies in the party.

Jessica, who is engaged to former NFL player Eric Johnson, accidentally announced that she has a baby boy on the way during a March appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."
When asked how she was feeling, the loose-lipped star blurted out, “I never knew that a wiener could actually make me so nauseous." She followed that up by saying, "Well, I guess I just told the whole world that I’m having a boy."
And he will be here soon! According to reports, Baby Boy Johnson will make his big debut later this spring.
