“I’m excited because little girl clothes are amazing and I’m the girliest girl ever!” Vanessa told last year shortly after announcing her pregnancy on Instagram.

The couple celebrated their pregnancy with a “Glam Rubber Ducky” baby shower in Hollywood last month where guests included members of their famous families. Vanessa was having so much fun at the shower she briefly thought she was going into labor. “I was so overwhelmed with excitement that I actually started having contractions at the end of the shower,” she told

“Luckily, it was just false labor. My little girl has quite a sense of humor already.”
