Celebs attending the event, themed “A Little Man Is on His Way”, include celeb DJ and recording artist Angie B, The Real‘s Adrienne Bailon and others. Celebrity photographer Evan Pierce shot the event.
Guests were treated to a deelish cake and desserts by Brooklyn NY bakers BCakeNY. Event designers Sweet Inspirations Events did an excellent time teaming up with party coordinator Elizabeth Keily to decorate the event.
Every detail was well thought out.
Guests played Boys v. Girls game of Taboo! How fun!
Emily B matched the black and gold colored decorations with a bump hugging off the shoulder long sleeve maxi-gown.
Guests went home with a momento from the event via the photo booth on site.
What a fabolous celebration! Congrats!
Congratulations to actress and author Haylie Duff on the birth of her first child, a daughter that she and fiance Matt Rosenberg named Ryan.
Yay! Another male or androgynous name for a girl. I like.
The Napolean Dynamite star was 4 days overdue per US Weekly‘s calculations. Better late than never!

Dawes revealed that although she seemed calm and poised while performing on the world stage, she was battling self-doubt and was a pessimist, but knew how to “fake it til you make it.” Her teammates, fans and family kept her going though inside she was quite a “nervous Ninny,” she said.”It was calming myself, getting at peace, affirmations,” she said of what helped propel her to success when visualization techniques didn’t work.
“I created a motto for myself as a young child. I called it D3: Determination, Dedication, Desire, so I would repeat these affirmations and even scriptures like Phillipians 4:13, ‘through all things God who strengthens me'” Dawes said. “Whenever those moments of doubt or negative thoughts would come in, I would push it out with these words.”
Since spilling the beans about being pregnant in a big way this past December, Dawes has been more open about her personal life.
|Dawes married The Heights School’s religion teacher and adviser Jeff Thompson last Spring.|
Dawes and a Potomac, Maryland religion teacher Jeff Thompson married 9 days after Dawes joined the Catholic church last year 2013 during the Easter Vigil. Dawes was born Baptist but joined the faith of her late paternal grandmother who was a Piscataway tribe member, she told Arroyo.
Personal note: I’m thinking Dawes is my sister from another mother (and father). We both converted to Catholicism late in life within a year of becoming a mother for the first time, as an adult after marrying Catholic men. We both went to the University of Maryland at College Park. We both have a Type-A personality, are both 5 foot 3 inches tall but married men who are 6 feet 3 and both are entrepreneurial business women. Twinsies! 🙂 I just need to go get an Olympic medal and the circle would be complete! LOL!
