Pregnant Emma Roberts glows in florals at ‘magical garden’ baby shower

Emma Roberts looked blooming beautiful at her “magical garden”-themed baby shower in LA on Saturday.

Dressed in a smocked floral midi dress ($478) and matching face mask ($35 for five) from Tory Burch, who also provided the party’s décor, the 29-year-old “American Horror Story” star celebrated her impending arrival with a stylish and socially distanced backyard gathering.

Roberts’ boyfriend Garrett Hedlund — with whom she’s expecting her first child, a baby boy — was on hand for the festivities, as were famous friends including Kristen Stewart and Camila Morrone, according to People.

Floral designer Eric Buterbaugh suspended roses from the trees with blue ribbon and presented the mom-to-be with a vagina-shaped arrangement, while Loria Stern and Little Sparks Cookies provided sweet treats adorned with real pressed flowers and the words “baby boy,” respectively.

“So grateful to my family and pod for making my pregnancy feel so celebrated during such wild times,” Roberts captioned her Instagram post. “I love you guys @cadehudson22 @kakeykake @britelkin and thank you to @toryburch & @ericbuterbaugh for the magical garden 🌸 #toryburchhome.”

Georgia pastor shocks pregnant Waffle House waitress with $12G tip after learning special detail about baby

What’s in a name?

A Georgia pastor recently gave a Waffle House waitress the surprise of a lifetime after raising a $12,000 tip for the pregnant server, after learning that the woman’s unborn child will have the same name as his late son.

Bishop Eusebio Phelps ordered an All-Star breakfast special from a Stockbridge location of the diner chain last week, and was struck by server Hannah Hill’s kindness, Fox 5 reports.

“She was so nice over the telephone, and when I got there I paid for my food and I told her to keep the change,” Phelps told WXIA-TV. “And then when I looked at her, I asked if she was pregnant — she said yes so at that time I was just really urged to give her the rest of the money that I had in my wallet, which was around $40. And so I gave her the $40 and I told her that I just wanted to be able to bless her so she could buy something for the baby.”

With just a few weeks to go until her due date, Hill revealed that she planned to name her unborn son Samuel.

Phelps, the leader of New Faith Christian Church, felt that it was a divine sign. His son Samuel died in Atlanta seven years ago, and the anniversary is coming up soon.

"We are so appreciative of the kind gesture made by Bishop Phelps and all of the others who contributed on behalf of our Associate, Hannah Hill," a rep for Waffle House told Fox News.

“I went home, I told my wife what happened… I was like, ‘Listen I wanna raise a thousand dollars to give to Hannah so she can buy whatever she needs for the baby,’” the pastor told the outlet.

Moved, Phelps shared Hill’s story on Facebook. Within about a day, supporters raised over $12,000, per WXIA.

Hill, meanwhile, had no idea it was coming.

“I was asleep in the car and my mother-in-law called and said, ‘You’ve got to get down to the Waffle House now,’” Hill told Fox 5.

Arriving at the restaurant, she was surprised to be greeted by cheering customers and a check for the generous gratuity during what Phelps called “a surprise baby shower.”

According to Hill, already a mom of one, the tremendous tip will be life-changing.

“Makes me wanna get back in church," Hill said of the chance encounter, and serious surprise.

“I had a lot going on, and I don’t really pray that often,” she told WXIA. “I’m not necessarily that religious, I wasn’t really raised in the church, don’t go to church a lot, haven’t cracked open a Bible in forever. But lately I

Woman transforms her drab kitchen while nine months pregnant

A mother-to-be has unveiled her stunning kitchen transformation – which she completed while almost nine months pregnant.

Dearbhaile Cooke, 29, from Belfast, got the keys to her new home when she was eight months gone and was desperate to renovate the kitchen before moving in and giving birth.

But rather than shell out on new units, Dearbhaile spent hours coating the dated pine doors a chic shade of black using Frenchic paint.

She and her fiancé Gary also replaced the worktop, tiles and floor – and Dearbhaile, already mother to a 10-year-old son, shared her handiwork on the Frenchic Fan Forum Facebook page, where fellow DIY enthusiasts raved over her stylish makeover.

Speaking to FEMAIL, Dearbhaile – who works part-time as a midwife and an aesthetic practitioner – claimed the laborious paint job helped ‘pass the time’ while she was heavily pregnant.

‘We wanted to have the house a home for our new arrival,’ she explained.

‘We planned on doing the whole downstairs and not worry so much about upstairs until after the baby is born. The house was very dated everything was wood and pine.

‘I did all the painting myself. My dad took all the cupboard doors off for me. It took four coats, and I went through two tins of Blackjack, costing £54.

‘I couldn’t say how long it took but all the hours I spent, it was a lot! I helped my sister paint my brother’s kitchen in the exact same paint as a surprise for his 40th – we did this in one day while he was at work, but there were four of us working together so that was doable!

‘I loved the paint and colour from then. As I had four weeks to my due date I thought it would help pass the end of the pregnancy for me and make these last weeks go quicker; it certainly did! Some days I was there from 11am to 8pm that night.’ 

The couple sourced a new worktop for just over £200 and bought their wall and floor tiles from a local Belfast supplier, Right Price Tiles. She also sprayed the existing unit handles in chrome
