Charlize Theron threw a baby shower for her friend Emily Blunt

Emily, 33, was presented with a cake that had pale-blue frosting, topped with yellow ducks. However a source also told Us Weekly: "Everything at the party was done in shades of light pink. There were pink balloons and light-pink floral centrepieces. It was very low-key."

Guests included Charlize's mum Gerda Maritz and make-up artists Jenn Streicher and Laini Reeves.

The pair starred in The Huntsman: Winter's War together

It's no surprise that Charlize, 40, chose to throw a baby shower for her fellow Hollywood star. The pair both recently worked together on The Huntsman: Winter's War, playing on-screen sisters Queen Ravenna and Princess Freya.

Charlize opened up about her little boy Jackson, four, is besotted with Emily.

"My son is in love with her," she told Extra TV. "He thinks she's the most beautiful princess ever. "The kids were all there. But, I didn't even exist. My son was just like, 'She's a princess', and I was like, 'I'm a queen!'"

Emily and her husband John Krasinski have a two-year-old daughter Hazel

In January, Emily and her husband John Krasinski confirmed that they are expecting their second child. The couple are already parents to two-year-old daughter Hazel, who isn't quite ready to take on her role as big sister.

"She quite likes being top dog at the moment, I think," Emily told Jimmy Kimmel. "I broached it with her and the first response when I said, 'You know Hazel, there's a baby in there; you're going to be a big sister', did not go well.

"She looked at me and she went, 'Nope.' And I went 'Yes.' That was the first talk. I've bought her every 'I'm a big sister' book out there."
