Chrissy Teigen's Baby Shower: McDonalds, a Mansion, and Social Media Mayhem
When you picture a baby shower, do you think of tasteless tea sandwiches, a boring old watermelon shaped into a baby carriage, and tame, pointless games everyone secretly hates? Then clearly you weren't in attendance at the raunchy, junk food-fueled shower thrown by the Kardashian clan for expectant mom Chrissy Teigen.
To be fair, I wasn't either.
But a quick scroll through the social media pics posted by the soon-to-be first time mom and her famous friends reveals a (very) good time was had by all. Not only did they indulge in pregnancy cravings from McDonald's and Taco Bell, but a cake was served complete with a baby photo of Teigen's hubby John Legend.
Other stars who were on hand to wish the model well (and pig out on hash browns) included Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Erin Andrews, and Legend himself. The bash was reportedly held at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's $20 million LA mansion, which has never even been lived in.
This was Teigen's second baby shower, and seemingly very different from her first, which was princess-themed and had the parents-to-be sporting "Baby Mama" and "Baby Daddy" crowns.

Of course, at the Kardashian bash, a photo booth was available for the beautiful people in attendance to make us jealous, er, to capture the blessed event. It seems a few glasses of champagne emboldened the stars to mug like models for the camera, and get super touchy-feely, grabbing one another's boobs and assorted other body parts.
Meanwhile, the less-than-glamorous grub was also photographed, juxtaposed against centerpieces of luscious-looking white flowers, creating a very interesting contrast.
Apparently it was a dream lunch, and the shower was a total blast. It's a wonder anyone was able to talk, or eat, they were so busy photographing every moment! But, hey, if a celebrity baby shower isn't essentially broadcast via social media, that begs the question: Did it even happen?
