Christina Milian 'Felt the Love' During Baby Shower for Son on the Way: 'I Had Such a Great Time’

The Falling Inn Love star, 38, who is expecting a son with boyfriend Matt Pokora, celebrated her baby on the way with friends and family on Saturday at her shower, which was held in Westwood Village, California.

“I had such a great time at our shower. It felt so good celebrating with our closest friends and family,” Milian tells PEOPLE exclusively in a statement, before seemingly dropping a hint at the name the couple have chosen for their baby boy on the way. “Matt and I felt the love in the room and can’t wait to meet our little ‘Prince.’ ”

Thrown in collaboration with Peanut — a social network that connects women through their fertility and motherhood journeys — the shower had a photobooth and was filled with plenty of mouth-watering food and yummy treats.

Some of Milian’s famous pals also stopped by to celebrate the star’s big day, including Khadijah Haqq McCray and Malika Haqq, who is also expecting a son, as well as Nicole Williams and Olivia Pierson.

During the celebration, Milian posed with an adorable “Ready to Pop” prop and spent some mother-daughter time with Violet Madison, 7, who can’t wait to become a big sister.

“Having so much fun at my baby shower with Violet!” she captioned two photos of the pair smiling together in the photobooth.

Milian also relished being able to “bump bellies” with Haqq.

“Congratulations, Oh Boys!!” wrote Haqq McCray alongside one photo from the event, in which the twin sisters smiled while they each lovingly put a hand on Milian’s bump.

“It was really nice celebrating your new arrival @christinamilian. I’m going to be a busy Auntie this year,” added Haqq McCray, as Milian replied: “So glad you girls came! You both looked great btw! Glad we got to bump bellies @malika!”
