Behind the Scenes of Jessica Alba’s French Country Baby Shower

Our August cover girl Jessica Alba seemed to enjoy a pleasant baby shower this past Sunday. The 30-year-old Spy Kids 4 actress celebrated the upcoming arrival of her second baby with friends in Los Angeles. According to People magazine, guests ate French cuisine with a southern twist and sipped on strawberry spa water, watermelon-shiso sweet tea and peach bellinies.

Instead of giving gifts, Alba’s guests made donations to Baby2Baby, on of the actresses favorite non-profit organizations that collects and distributes donated new and gently used items to families from Los Angeles who are in need of essential baby gear and clothing.  Though baby gifts were bypassed for the guest of honor, all of the lucky invited ladies left with a Coach purse filled with goodies, including Lia Sophia jewelry, Drybar gift cards, and a Juicy Couture scarf! Now we’re upset we weren’t invited!

This is Alba’s second baby with husband Cash Warren.
