I only just now realized that Robin Thicke was nowhere to be seen on Grammy weekend. Makes total sense to me – I sort of believe Thicke has been kicked out of “music” at this point. Of course, it’s also possible that Robin didn’t want to travel to New York so close to his girlfriend’s due date. Yes, remember that? Robin started dating April Love Geary when she was about 20 years old – she’s 23 years old now, and he’s 40. She’s pregnant and expecting a baby girl next month. Over the weekend, they held their fancy baby shower and they ended up revealing the name they’ve picked out:
Robin Thicke and April Love Geary are counting down the days until they meet their baby girl. The singer, 40, and model, 23, celebrated their daughter — who’s expected to arrive in March — with a lavish baby shower in Malibu, California, on Jan. 20.
“We were so lucky to be surrounded by so much love and joy,” Thicke tells PEOPLE exclusively about the day. At the pink-themed fête (planned and designed by Vanessa Michelle Co. and A1 Party Rental), guests sipped on pink champagne, dug into tacos by MH Taco Catering and snacked on Grace and Honey Cakes treats including cake pops, lemon poppy cupcakes, macarons and Oreo gems, plus cookies by Cousin Cookie. Later in the day, the Churro Bar Catering truck also stopped by to serve homemade churros with ice cream along with gourmet coffee drinks.
“Robin and April are two of my favorite people so it was such an honor to give them the shower of their dreams,” says planner Vanessa Michelle, who leveraged a “soft and feminine color palette with a twist.” Using a variety of pink, lilac and plum colors, Michelle mixed and matched vintage rentals from Etablir Shop, velvet textures, florals, balloons and more to decorate the event, which featured tunes spun by DJ Jon B and Salina G.
One extra-special touch was a giant floral wall by Lovesome Blossoms that revealed the baby’s name: Mia. “Julian came up with the name … and I suggested the middle name Love after her mommy,” says Thicke about his 7½-year-old son (with ex-wife Paula Patton).
First of all, I have a sweet tooth too but even I think that’s way too much sugar – cake pops, cupcakes, macarons, Oreo gems AND cookies AND churros and ice cream? Let’s name the baby Diabetes Thicke! As for the real name they’ve picked out… Mia Love is impossibly Manic Pixie Dream Girl, but think about how her full name is going to sound: MIA LOVE THICKE. That went from Manic Pixie Dream Girl to a stripper’s stage name in about two seconds, didn’t it? Kaiser Love Thicke out. (Massive sidenote: I actually enjoy the nouveau-hippie vibe of naming a baby “Love” – I’ve met women who go by Love and Lovey and it’s actually very cool to me, or maybe they were just cool girls.)
