LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Dozens of military moms-to-be were treated to a baby shower at the Riviera Country Club in the Pacific Palisades by Emmy Award-winning actress Sarah Michelle Gellar.
The expectant moms, whose spouses are deployed members of Naval Base Ventura County, were feted during an Operation Shower group baby shower.
“For military wives who are expecting a baby and whose spouses are deployed or soon to be deployed, the impending arrival of a child can be both exciting and stressful,” said Operation Shower Founder and Chief Shower Officer LeAnn Morrissey.
The theme of the shower was “A Star Is Born.” Each mom-to-be received Operation Shower’s signature “Shower In A Box,” which included products for mothers and babies donated by companies like Carousel Designs and Pottery Barn Kids.
Operation Shower is a non-profit dedicated to supporting military families by throwing baby showers for military moms-to-be whose spouses are deployed or seriously injured.
