Singer Monica Brown and hubby, Phoenix Suns player Shannon Brown threw a star-studded celebration for their baby girl, Laiyah, who is just weeks from making her debut. Pinks and purples filled Jermaine Durpri’s backyard in Atlanta, where the couple threw the carnival-themed festivity complete with a white horse and pony. Almost 200 guests (including Ludacris, LeToya Luckett, Nene and Greg Leakes and Keri Hilson) attended the uber girly and feminine babyshower that had Laiyah’s name spelt out on pink glittery invites designed by Sandi Spells Design.
“It was very whimsical, just like a Disney princess movie and just as I had envisioned it,” she told People magazine. “There was so much love in the room and everybody had a great time.”
Dj Mars played sweet tunes from house to gospel music, while Browns’ guest dined on Southern cuisine like sweet potato fries, corn fritters and grilled cheese and of course… Laiyah’s spinning strawberry velvet carousel cake.
Monica who already has two sons, Rocko and Romeo, is excited about her new bundle of joy. “I know everything about WrestleMania and Tonka Trucks so I’m excited to share shopping dates and manis and pedis with her. But I’m really looking forward to teaching her about life. I want to be an example to her like my mother was to me.”
