Jamie Otis celebrated at her baby shower over the weekend.
The 30-year-old reality star and first-time mom-to-be was feted by family and friends at a surprise party Saturday in Belmar, N.J., after announcing she's expecting a baby girl with husband Doug Hehner.
"I can't say 'thank you' enough to everyone who came to shower our sweet baby Hehner with love & gifts. I am so overwhelmed with emotions .... I feel so blessed to have such lovely ladies in my life," Otis captioned a photo on Instagram from the bash.
"BIGGEST thank you EVER to my amazing in laws!!! They put together this whole #babyshower & surprised me! I feel beyond #BLESSED and it makes my heart SO happy to know our little girl is already so loved," she added. "Best day ever!"
The couple announced Otis' pregnancy in February following a miscarriage, and later confirmed they're expecting a daughter in August.
"I've always wanted to have that mother-daughter relationship that I kind of missed out on with my mom," Otis told People in April. "I secretly hoped to be a mommy to a little girl and to have a little mini me."
"Every one of my guy friends say there is this unexplained special bond that happens with a daughter," Hehner added. "They don't know what it is, but it's an amazing feeling, and I cannot wait."
