Monica throws baby shower ahead of daughter’s birth

R&B singer Monica has thrown a lavish princess-themed baby shower in anticipation of becoming a new mum. The Angel of Mine hitmaker is weeks away from welcoming her first child with basketball star husband Shannon Brown, and she threw a special bash ahead of the big day.
Monica decked out her pal Jermaine Dupri’s Atlanta, Georgia home with pink balloons, cushions and flowers, and even indulged in a cake in the shape of a carousel.
The star tells People, “It was very whimsical, just like a Disney princess movie and just as I had envisioned it.”
And Monica reveals she can’t wait to share time with her daughter after bringing up two sons: “I know everything about WrestleMania and Tonka Trucks so I’m excited to share shopping dates and manis (manicures) and pedis (pedicures) 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.”
Guests at the shower included rapper Ludacris, Glee star Nene Leakes and singer Keri Hilson.
Monica already has two kids from a previous relationship – Rodney, seven, and Romelo, five.
