During the baby shower, attendees sipped glasses of Owl’s Brew, for which Jeannie serves as Chief Brand Officer, Naud Cognac, which Jeezy has partnered with, and Avión Tequila. They dined on a global-inspired lunch catered by Chef Marcel and Jeannie of Married to Food Catering. Attendees had an array of options to choose from, including hummus, tuna tartare, French green beans, chicken Marsala and salmon with house-made chimichurri.
Through all the planning, Jeannie’s loved ones were top of mind. “I wanted the shower to make everyone feel appreciated, whether they were parents or not,” Jeannie explained. “We are so busy these days, and I hadn’t seen some of my friends since the days I thought I would never be a mom, so it was special to celebrate our life decision.”
Of course, it was also a time to have some fun together and bask in this special time ahead of the baby’s birth. “I kept Baby J a secret for so long that it feels surreal to finally celebrate with everyone,” Jeannie said. “Also, we have kept ourselves from knowing the gender of the baby, so it was fun watching everyone guess based off my cravings, tummy and old wives’ tales.”
When the party was over, guests headed home with gift bags featuring swag from Pavé the Way Jewelry, TooFaced Cosmetics and Therabod. But before it was time to say goodbye, Jeannie’s family and friends could document the special occasion inside a Pop Social photo booth.
