Kate Mara is ready for baby! The actress had a baby shower at her home in Los Angeles over the weekend, according to People, celebrating her new bundle of joy on the way.

“Kate seemed very excited about her baby shower,” a source told the magazine.

The source added that Kate’s sister Rooney Mara attended the event. As modern baby showers go, both sisters were joined by their spouses—Jamie Bell and Joaquin Phoenix, respectively—for the co-ed affair.

“Everything was pink!” the source revealed. “There were gorgeous pink flower decorations, the treats were pink and Kate also had her hair up in a bun with a pink ribbon tied around it. Guests even brought gifts wrapped in pink.”

Kate paired her pink ribbon with the blue and white ruffled dress, according to photos obtained by the Daily Mail. Based on the images, the dress appears to be the Calla dress from Dôen’s celebration collection. Bell matched the mama-to-be with a blue denim button-down shirt and black pants.

Mara’s mother stayed more (seemingly) on theme. She wore a pink and white floral dress and carried a pink floral gift bag. A number of pink, white, and pastel blooms were also delivered for the event.

While we can’t assume anything about what the couple’s choices mean about the sex of the baby, if they adhered to the traditional color story for boys and girls, it seems they are expecting a daughter. While this will be Kate’s first child, the new baby makes two for Bell who shares a five-year-old son, Jack Matfin Bell, with his ex-wife Evan Rachel Wood.

Kate first announced her pregnancy in February after the 2019 Oscars, debuting her growing baby bump on the red carpet. She shared the red carpet shot of her and Bell with the caption, "Went on a date with our bun in the oven."
