The baby shower was held at Katherine's house in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon, August 29.
Katherine Heigl acted as a good friend for fellow actress Ellen Pompeo, who is pregnant with her first child, by serving as host for her baby shower. There were 25 friends joining the "Grey's Anatomy" co-stars at the event, which was held at Katherine's house in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon, August 29. Fellow celebs Kate Walsh, Sandra Oh and Rebecca Gayheart were among the guests.
Held in the backyard, the baby bash was dominated by pink flower arrangements and candles that accented the tables. There were umbrellas erected to shield guests from the heat. "Ellen looked gorgeous in a white summer dress with her hair in a braided up-do. She seemed very excited to celebrate with her girlfriends," a source in the know tells People about the expectant actress.
Some of the gifts that Ellen got during the day were a Sleep Sheep toy mobile, Sleepy Safari stacking toys, organic hooded towels and a Kiddopotamus organic swaddle wrap. Those items came from the Juvenile Shop in Sherman Oaks, where Ellen is registered. The gifts were wrapped in girly pink and yellow colors.
Ellen Pompeo is expected to give birth to the baby she is carrying in October. The infant, which reportedly is a baby girl, will be her and music producer husband Chris Ivery's first child. The pair has been married since November 9, 2007.
