The baby shower for Nadia Bjorlin was quite a party!
The Days of Our Lives star and her husband, Grant Turnbull, are having a son in May. On Saturday, they had a shower with a Cinco de Mayo theme to celebrate.
Bjorlin, 35, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview, “We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful and fun day.” “The love and gifts from our friends and family were too much for us to handle.”
The party was held at the West Hollywood home of Bjorlin’s best friend Dilson Schild, where Bjorlin’s sister Kamilla Bjorlin and friend Camryn Kruger also lived. The guests ate fajitas, tacos, and quesadillas for dinner. For dessert, they had churros, cookies, and macaroons.
Bjorlin and Turnbull’s family and friends gave them lots of gifts, like a Nuna Mixx stroller and a fancy diaper cake with lots of toys and clothes on it.
Lance Bass and his husband Michael Turchin were there, as well as Michelle Stafford and Christian LeBlanc from The Young and the Restless, Molly Burnett and Crystal Chappell from Days of Our Lives, and Bradford Anderson from General Hospital.
“They say it takes a village, and sure enough, the village was there! The mom-to-be tells PEOPLE that the baby boy will be very loved.
On Thanksgiving Day, Bjorlin wrote on Instagram that she was pregnant.
“This year, there are so many things to be thankful for. She wrote “New beginnings…” under a picture of three pairs of shoes. “Our family is getting two feet taller… May 2016,” it said on the picture.
