Shelby’s mum Karen actually runs an events company, so was able to organise fabulous decorations including balloons in blue, white and grey.
The influencer and model took to Instagram to thank her mother for organising the event, writing: “So much fun celebrating our baby boy yesterday.
"Thank you so much to my mummy for organising and making my baby shower so special with your incredible balloon displays @allthatsparkles_events and to everyone who came to celebrate and spoilt me rotten. Thank you so much.’”[sic]
Aside from the decorations, another stand-out factor of the party was the incredible cakes on offer. They were created by Lulu’s Bakery and looked incredible.
First off the star had little cupcakes that were blue, with one set actually having little edible ultrasound scans on top. Others had little gold milk bottles or ABC blocks. So sweet!
Also on offer where doughnuts, which we never knew could look so pretty. They blue rings were sprinkled with gold leaf, cobalt blue sugar crystals and icing drizzled on top.
Shelby and her guests also played pin the dummy on the baby, among other party games.
For the event, the star wore a long white jumpsuit by Club L London, which featured wide-leg trousers and off-shoulder straps.
However, despite Shelby’s radiant appearance, it has not all been plain sailing for the star, who last month opened up about some of the more uncomfortable symptoms she has been suffering during her pregnancy.
The star, shared on Instagram: “Although I may look glam and have had the best pregnancy you can wish for.
"The heartburn, swollen ankles/feet, back ache, leg cramps and chafing are all staring to play their parts.”

But even though some symptoms may be less than desirable, the star has also explained how being pregnant has helped with her self-esteem.
She told fans: "For so long I’ve had such low self esteem, confidence and always doubted myself with anything and everything but now I’m starting to feel I have a purpose in life and this baby will be the making of me.
