The stars were aligned on Saturday for Andy Cohen.

The Watch What Happens Live host and many Real Housewives stars gathered in Los Angeles for his baby shower, which was hosted by Kyle Richards, Ramona Singer, NeNe Leakes, Teresa Giudice and Vicki Gunvalson at The Palm restaurant in Beverly Hills. The theme was appropriately (and adorably) "A Star Is Born." There was an entire wall covered in a floral arrangement with a giant star decoration on it. Similarly, the gold and white cake had "A star is born" written on it.

Just in time for awards season, this shower should definitely win "best theme."

From Orange County to New Jersey and Beverly Hills to Atlanta, Cohen spent the day surrounded by Housewives from all over the country. Other women in attendance included Denise Richards, Lisa Rinna, Tamra Judge, Erika Jayne, Sonja Morgan and more. John Mayer and Bruce Bozzi Jr. made an appearance, too.

According to an insider, the "room was filled with love."

The source added, "It so much fun for the different cast members to hang out. No drama. Just lots of love for Andy."

The inside of the party looked like it was fit for royalty, and the menu itself was no different. Cohen and his guests had a few delicious-sounding options for each course. For the appetizers, there was Chinese chicken salad and a lobster Cobb salad.

Keeping up with the seafood theme, main courses included salmon with mango salsa, sliced espresso rubbed grass fed filet mignon with onion straws and chicken paillard. Side dishes were grilled asparagus, French fried potatoes and spinach and polenta cakes. For dessert, there was key lime pie, chocolate chip cookies and creme brûlée. 

At a later point in the party, some Housewives got tables and started dancing their hearts out.

Cohen shared the exciting news on Dec. 20 that he was expecting his first baby via surrogate. Appropriately, the shower's co-hosts were in attendance that same evening on his show.

He said on the show, "I've always tried to be as transparent as possible about my life. I over share and I expect everyone around me to do the same and tonight I want you to be the first to know that after many years of careful deliberation, fair amount of prayers and the benefit of science, if all goes according to plan, in about six weeks time, I'm going to become a father thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future."

A few days later, Cohen revealed to Anderson Cooper during their New Year's Eve Live special on CNN that he was having a baby boy!

We can't wait to meet Cohen's baby as he's sure to arrive any day now.
