Jennifer Lopez is finally experiencing what it’s like to weigh as much as a chicken shed, while Marc Anthony looks even paler than usual lately. Ah, the joy of impending parenthood. Jennifer is due in just a few weeks, and they’re celebrating the new arrival with a baby shower. Naturally, I’m sure the party will be filled with gifts of ungodly prices. Would that I could have teethed on a solid gold pacifier! Damn you, upper middle class parents! Anyway, now that’s out of my system. From People:
“Jennifer Lopez celebrated her pregnancy with a baby shower Saturday on the rooftop of the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City.
The singer and her husband Marc Anthony both attended the afternoon shower, which was hosted by Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Lopez‘s producer on the 2002 film Maid in Manhattan.
Lopez, 38, “looked very pretty – and very pregnant,” according to an eyewitness, who saw the couple arrive flanked by bodyguards.
Among the guests were actress Leah Remini and designer Roberto Cavalli, who gifted Lopez with a pink leopard crib, according to a source. As for the décor, everything at the shower was blue and pink – and the room was covered with Swarovski crystal, said the source.
Last month the singer, who is due in a few weeks, was given matching pink and blue Tuni & G onesies from her sister Lynda Lopez. The pop star has been mum about whether she’s expecting twins, though multiple sources have told PEOPLE she’s having two bundles of joy.
The singer first announced she would be starting a family with her husband of three years, Marc Anthony, 39, last November after months of speculation.
“This is a special time in our lives,” Lopez told an audience during a concert in Miami, the final stop on the couple’s El Cantante tour.
Even as her baby bump grew increasingly noticeable with each performance, Lopez had avoided discussing her impending motherhood.
“We’re just getting used to the fact that we’ve told everybody” Lopez tells Harper’s Bazaar for its February issue.
When asked how long she is planning to take off from her career as a singer, actress and designer, Lopez says, “I don’t know – and I like that.”"
The rumour has been circulating that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony might be expecting twins. Oh happy day. Matching pop star babies. On the other hand, they might just be buying both blue and pink because they want the baby to appreciate all color schemes, or not impose on their child by enforcing sexual orientation from birth, by using the colors marked appropriate for the sex. Or, they may not know the sex of their child, because they prefer it to be a surprise. Who knows?
