Roselyn Sánchez looked pretty in purple as she celebrated her upcoming arrival — her daughter due in early January — at a baby shower hosted by Johnson’s Naturals on November 5 in Pasadena, Calif. The Rush Hour actress, 38, and husband Eric Winter welcomed family and close friends – including Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria – to the outdoor garden party.
Roselyn opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about the intimate event, the “miracle” of pregnancy, her excitement about becoming a mother and her supportive husband who “cooks for [her] all the time.”
The couple wanted the baby shower to be an intimate event, with a touch of class, glamor and lots of flowers. And it was a kid-friendly event as well! There was an entire section for children called the Kid’s Corner. There was a lemonade stand, and brunch consisted of omelets and waffles. Guests later noshed on a delicious red velvet and vanilla cake.
Roselyn said the event was the perfect pre-baby gathering. The actress/model also talked about their daughter on-the-way and feeling “ready” for their upcoming arrival.
We’ve been wanting to be parents for awhile so we were completely ready for this new adventure and life changing experience,” Roselyn said. “It has brought us much closer together as a married couple, partners for life and best friends. We know the intense responsibility and can’t wait to start.”
The beautiful brunette – who recently bared her baby bump on Imagen‘s cover – said her Days of our Lives alum husband is sure to be an “amazing” father.
“Eric is going to be an amazing dad,” she gushed. “He’s already an amazing son that loves his parents. Seeing and knowing that let’s me know he’ll be an outstanding father.”
And it sounds like he’s no slouch in the husband department either! “He supports me, cooks for me all the time, goes with me to all the doctor’s appointments,” she added.
The mom-to-be said the “miracle” of pregnancy has them both so excited.
Everything is exciting! Just knowing that I’m bringing life into this world is a miracle.”
