Mom-to-be Ellen Pompeo
was joined by 25 friends, including Kate Walsh
, Sandra Oh
and Rebecca Gayheart, for a baby shower held Saturday afternoon at Katherine Heigl
's home in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles.
Pompeo and her husband Chris Ivery are expecting a baby
daughter in October.
As 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."
The catered, outdoor baby bash was held in the backyard. Umbrellas shielded guests from the heat – L.A. temps reached 104 degrees Saturday – and pink flower arrangements and candles accented the tables.
Guests brought gifts wrapped in girly pink and yellow colors. Many of the gifts – which included a Sleep Sheep toy mobile, Sleepy Safari stacking toys, organic hooded towels and a Kiddopotamus organic swaddle wrap – came from the Juvenile Shop in Sherman Oaks, where Pompeo is registered.
Earlier in the day, Pompeo and her girlfriend Nicole Richie
– who also is pregnant
– shared some special time together.
Pompeo has not let her pregnancy slow her down. When not busy filming new episodes of Grey's Anatomy
, she keeps in shape
with workout sessions at a local gym. In addition, she and Ivery are remodeling a new home.
