Good friends, fun games, amazing food. Shiri Appleby‘s baby shower, hosted by five of her closest girlfriends, had all the hallmarks of a great party. The only thing missing: the opening of presents. In keeping with her desire not to find out the baby-to-be’s sex, the gorgeous Girls and Chicago Fire actress decided to hold off on unwrapping the gifts until after the event.
About 50 of Appleby’s female friends, including “The Mentalist’s” Robin Tunney, who co-hosted the affair, descended on her fiance Jon Shook’s famed L.A. eatery, Animal, on Jan. 27 to toast their first-ever child, due in early March. Guests admired adorable black and white photos, charmingly strung up on a wall, of the two as a couple and as kids. They also played classic shower games like estimating the circumference of the pregnant star’s belly and guessing the flavors in the different jars of baby food.
