Babymoon, gender reveal parties and baby showers have gained popularity among Kenyan uptown women, particularly celebrities, creating an admiration in pregnant women.

For some women, they have to do different parties before the baby comes. It starts with a babymoon, where they take a vacation or getaway with their spouse mostly in the second trimester of the pregnancy. Others choose to have a staycation for the babymoon where they stay at home but visit local sceneries and a destinations within the country.

After the babymoon comes the gender reveal party. One of the most exciting moments when a woman is pregnant is knowing either she is expecting a boy or a girl.  Most parents choose to share this magical moment with friends and family by having a gender reveal party. The sex of the child is told through cakes, balloon colours and decorations.

Before the baby arrives, there is a baby shower party- mostly a gift giving ceremony. Friends, mostly women, come with gifts to help the pregnant woman prepare for the arrival of the baby. These parties are always themed sometimes according to the gender of the baby especially to women who don’t have gender reveal parties.

In Kenya such events are mostly done by celebrities. Below is a list of women who attempted to have all the above parties.
