Update: Ellen Pompeo’s Baby Shower

Update: Mom-to-be Ellen Pompeo did attend her baby shower today in LA! It was hosted not by Nicole Richie, as early reports implied, but by Ellen’s Grey’s Anatomy co-star Katherine Heigl! Ellen and Nicole, who is expecting baby #2, did get together earlier in the day.

Ellen celebrated impending motherhood with a catered backyard bash attended by 25 of her friends, including Kate Walsh, Sandra Oh and Rebecca Gayheart.

“Ellen looked gorgeous in a white summer dress with her hair in a braided up-do,” an onlooker tells People. “She seemed very excited to celebrate with her girlfriends.”

The 39-year-old expectant mom received tons of great gifts – including a Sleep Sheep toy mobile and Kiddopotamus organic swaddle wrap – from Juvenile Shop, where she’s registered.

    Aww. I love Ellen’s dress. She’s so cute.

    And I guess it really was a rumor that Nicole Richie was in labor yesterday.

    Lead photo: Been shopping out of the Pyramid Collection catalog, Ellen? 😉 A tad dark ‘n’ witchy for a summer day in LA — but hey, I often felt a little like Morticia at this point, myself, just didn’t have the costume for it! Excellent white number, though — cool and fresh and breezy.
