Drew Barrymore’s Weekend Baby Shower

Safe Kids Day

Who doesn’t love Drew Barrymore? She is sweet, talented, and seems like an all-around chill, cool gal. Apparently some of the hottest, most A-list Hollywood ladies love Drew too, as a crew of huge female stars attended Barrymore’s bridal shower this past weekend.

The actress is currently pregnant with her second child and celebrated the upcoming birth with a party for friends and family on Saturday, April 12, at her home in the Hollywood Hills. Barrymore and her husband, art consultant Will Kopelman, are already parents to little Olive, 18 months. The actress is due to give birth to the baby in two weeks.

In the first part of the day, event trucks came by to deliver tables, chairs, and alcohol from Pete’s Wine and Spirits. Around 1 pm, the guests started to arrive for the backyard fiesta. Among the first buddies to show up was Barrymore’s pal, Reese Witherspoon, a fellow Hot Hollywood Mama. Witherspoon, 38, dressed for the occasion in a flower-print dress and brought with her a present she acquired at mutual friend Cameron Diaz‘s house. Diaz also attended the party, along with Gwyneth Paltrow, a mother of two.

There were about 50 people in attendance at the party, each showing up with flowers and presents for Barrymore. Friends mingled and enjoyed the party all afternoon. According to the eyewitness, Witherspoon, a mother of three, left at around 4 p.m.

An eyewitness issued the following statement to E! News: “Everyone had a great afternoon out in the sun. There was tons of laughter and music coming from the house. Drew was so happy to see her friends and have one last shindig before the baby comes later this month. It was a really relaxed atmosphere and all about getting together with the people she loves. Reese was one of the first guests to arrive and one of the last to leave. She had a great afternoon celebrating Drew.”

The Big Miracle actress discussed her pregnancy with Ellen DeGeneres back in January. “Oh god, I mean, I just eat everything I want, which isn’t healthy. I’m bigger this time than my first time.”

Barrymore continued, “My doctor the other day was like, ‘Yeah, so I think maybe pull back a little bit. I was like, ‘Really?’”

She next stars in the family comedy movie Blended, co-starring Adam Sandler. The film will be released in the U.S. May 23, 2014.
