Serena Williams celebrated the impending arrival of her first child at a celeb-studded 1950s themes baby shower at Nick’s 50’s Diner in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums Ciara and Kelly Rowland; and our fashion style faves Eva Longoria and La La Anthony, and her fellow Tennis star sister Venus Williams  were among the guests that came outfitted in the theme and took turns taking pics in front of a cherry red truck parked in the front of the restaurant.

Serena Williams had a star-studded baby shower and the tennis champ opted to give her pals a blast from the past with her 1950s-themed celebration today at Nick’s 50’s Diner in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Williams and her fiance Alex Ohanian are expecting their first child this Summer.

Several of the party goers took to social media to post images and video from the fun-filled party and most hashtagged the event: “#ShakeRattleandRoll2017.” Check out some of the pics:

Naughton and her longtime beau Ben celebrated the impending arrival at a very festive and exquisitely decorated forum which was also star studded and attended by her co POWER star LaLa Anthony, actresses Regina King (American Crime, The Leftovers) and Nicole Beharie (Sleepy Hollow)  and a Grimm star Russell Horsnby and The Game actor Hosea Chanchez.

“I loved my Afro-Centric theme: ‘It Takes a Village to Raise a Child.’ Primrose Couture Events designed the perfect tribal décor with a village vibe, infused with my Caribbean roots,” the petite star told PEOPLE magazine.

The couple also used the occasion to announce the gender of the baby.

“It’s a girl! My man [longtime boyfriend Ben] and I totally predicted a boy at first,” the former 3LW girl band member told the magazine. “I was so sure because I am having such an easy and stress-free pregnancy and I had heard all these stories about how girls steal your beauty and make you really sick when pregnant. Well … so not true for me.”

Ha! We know that’s right. At her shower, Naughton looked stunning and glowed in a white lace frock with her loose ringlets adorned in a light floral crown.  Guests noshed on gold covered oreos, macrons, cake pops, and other tasty delectables perfectly decorated in the theme’s colors of gold and green and had fun cutting up in the photo booth.

But as the night went on, the guests let their hair down and can be seen “jumping up” to some soca music from the Caribbean.

And Naughton, who is also a rapper and excellently played rapper Lil Kim in the movie about the Notorious B.I.G. on the big screen, revived her role on the dance floor to a Lil Kim song.

Naughton told PEOPLE she’s “still feeling pretty good,” but is dealing with one issue many women who have been through pregnancy can relate to.

 “I’m definitely experiencing the swelling of the feet now though, which sucks, but hey, I get a foot rub every night so I’m loving that part!” she joked while adding that her fave indulgent and cravings are Rice Krispies Treats.

“She puts peanut butter in them and they taste like heaven!” Naughton says. “I can tell the baby is loving them too because there’s a happy dance in my belly after my snack time.”

Naughton and Ben are not sharing the baby girl’s name until she arrives.

“I think we are 90 percent settled on a beautiful name that we both love,” adding that she and Ben will decide for sure after her birth but other aspects of baby prep are coming along.

“The nursery is coming together, and it’s hard to resist all the adorable baby girl clothes out there, so her wardrobe is in full effect” she said, though the event is not set to arrive until July so she still has a little bit of time to pull together the last minute nesting.

And July cannot get her fast enough as Naughton is already prepping to be a “mommy and me” type of mom.

“Dressing alike, mommy-daughter day dates, singing together and teaching her all the important things I learned from my mother,” Naughton told PEOPLE what she is excited about. “I just want to give her a strong foundation, so she can navigate this crazy world by being a strong and beautiful little girl.”

After dinner, the Ciara and Wilson’s close family and friends played games and danced the night away to music provided by DJ Nabs.

Also from E!

The party was held at a private home in Los Angeles where a tent was set up overlooking the city’s gorgeous skyline of bright green trees and blue skies. Inside, the tent was lit up by pretty string lights and big balloons that were adorned by gold and silver fringe. A dining area was formed in the shape of a square with balloons filling the space in the center and cute trinkets—like gold elephant statues, massive flower arrangements, candles and books—covered the table.

Nice! The couple announced they were expecting last October after a whirlwind romance and getting married in a ceremony in England.
