The celebrations have begun — Ali Larter celebrated her baby shower on Oct. 2 at a girlfriend’s house in Los Angeles! “It was an incredible day and I just felt so lucky to be surrounded by so many dear friends and family,” the 34-year-old Resident Evil: Afterlife actress told People. “It was a very special day!”

“We wanted a very worldly and natural feel,” Ali said of the afternoon shower, designed by celebrity event planner David Stark (and presented by Target and Baby Buggy). “It was very earthy.”

The glowing mom-to-be even had an unexpected visitor: her hubby Hayes MacArthur. He stopped by the shower to say hi after a round of golf. “Everyone was excited to see him,” Ali gushed.

Ali and Hayes are expecting a baby boy, who they’re already referring to as “Baby Mac.” “To feel this life growing inside of me grounds me every day and really puts things into perspective about what’s important in life,” Ali shared. “It really is your health and your family.”
