Ashlee Simpson hosted a Winnie the Pooh-themed baby shower on Saturday (01.11.08).
The 'Outta My Head' singer - who is due to give birth to her first child later this month - celebrated with 35 guests, including singer-and-actress sister Jessica Simpson, her mother Tina, actress Emmy Rossum and Nicole Richie, who brought her 10-month-old daughter Harlow.
A source at the shower - which was briefly attended by Ashlee's husband, Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz - said: "She was glowing and insanely happy. Pete was so excited too!"
Guests enjoyed a feast of chicken and mashed potatoes, crab cakes, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, jicama salad with grapefruit and a bumblebee-shaped cake before Ashlee was given several gifts, including several outfits from Kitson Kids and a mini-Burton snowboard suit and matching gear.
Ashlee's friends and family were only given the time and location, Los Angeles Bel-Air hotel, early on Saturday morning in order to keep it secret.
The hotel's Palm Room was decorated with yellow and orange roses, and guests were given gifts appropriate to the shower's theme.
A source revealed: "They were given jars of honey, Pooh's favourite food, with custom-made labels that said 'Baby Wentz' and 'Thank You For Celebrating My Life' on them.
"The girls were also given bracelets that had a big bumble bee on them."
