Erica and Tina Campbell, three-time Grammy Award-winning gospel duo Mary Mary, are busy moms with eight children between the two of them.
And on last night’s all-new episode of WEtv’s reality show Mary Mary, Tina looked radiant in a gray jersey dress and high bun. The expectant mama celebrated the impending arrival of her baby boy with a shower in the backyard of her LA-area home. Shot last summer, Campbell gave birth to son Santana on August 4 – less than two weeks after her shower.
“He is the greatest joy ever,” Tina gushed to Celebrity Baby Scoop of baby Santana. “It’s funny how I thought my fifth child would be overwhelming. But as soon as he was born I felt a great sense of relief, and really a great sense of joy. It’s unexplainable. It’s amazing how much joy this little boy has brought me. Just looking at him I smile all the time.”
At the co-ed shower, Tina was joined by close family and friends, including her sister and husband, Tonight Show band drummer Teddy Campbell.
The shower’s organizers called on Marque Communications to help put together a massive gift table consisting of the hottest products on the market today for babies, moms and dads.
“It was a pleasure to be part of Tina’s special day,” said Marque’s Scout Masterson. “Tina looked radiant and almost overwhelmed by the outpouring of love from her family, the size of the gift table, and by the heat! It was well over one hundred degrees.”
Proud sis Erica took to Twitter after the lovely outdoor event: “My sister & bro Teddy Campbell def enjoyed their baby shower today.”
