Actress Jessica Alba hosted a baby shower for a group of military families. The 33-year-old ‘Sin City’ star, whose father was in Air Force, threw a party for over 30 members of US Navy families stationed in San Diego, California ahead of their upcoming deployment, reported Contactmusic.

“Growing up in a military family and having many family members in the service, I saw first-hand how tough deployment is on families and the time apart is never easy for either party involved,” she said.

Alba and her organisation The Honest Company partnered with officials at Operation Shower, a charity which provides baby celebrations for service members across the US. “I am so thrilled to join Operation Shower to reward these brave men and women as a small token of The Honest Company’s appreciation for their service and their sacrifices to help protect our country,” Alba said.

Each family at the fete was given a month’s supply of diapers and wipes from Alba’s Honest Company, much to the delight of the mothers and mothers-to-be in attendance.
