Pregnant actress Minnie Driver enjoyed a casual baby shower, held at a friend's home in Malibu on Saturday, June 21. There were nearly 40 guests invited to the event.
The party's color scheme, per People, was pink with the home was decorated with pink and white peonies. The guests enjoyed basil lemonade, finger sandwiches and berry cake from Sweet Lady Jane as part of the buffet, suggesting that Driver might be expecting a baby girl she has been longing for.
An unidentified friend of Driver was quoted as telling People, the movie star "loves the cake." And bringing a more intimate aspect to the day, guests hand-painted onesies for the baby and signed personal notes in a book to be given to the mom-to-be.
"It was a beautiful day," so said another guest to the publication.
Driver confirmed during an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on March 13 that she was pregnant with her first child. Declined to reveal the baby's father, the British-born Emmy- and Academy Award-nominated star said only a little about the man, saying he's English, "sort of in the same business."
She and the man, nevertheless, have no plans to marry. Marriage according to Driver "Definitely not in the near future. It's not important to me. I don't think a piece of paper lends itself to the idea of being a good parent."
