Ellen Pompeo’s Star-Studded Baby Shower

It was a celebratory afternoon for the pregnant Ellen Pompeo. She started off her day at Nicole Richie ‘s house, who’s also expecting a baby. They were joined by Samantha Ronson , for who knows what? Maybe she spun records in the background while they chatted.

Then it was off to Katherine Heigl ‘s home in Los Feliz for Ellen’s baby shower. Ellen Pompeo was joined by 25 friends, including Kate Walsh, Sandra Oh and Rebecca Gayheart yesterday. An eyewitness told People, “Ellen looked gorgeous in a white summer dress with her hair in a braided up-do. She seemed very excited to celebrate with her girlfriends.”

Pompeo and her husband Chris Ivery are expecting a baby daughter in October. Judging by the wrapping of the gifts it looks as if they’re expecting a baby girl.
