The actress – who is expecting her first baby with Goldie's son Wyatt Russell – shared a sweet photo from her special day on Instagram, featuring the Hollywood star and Kate Hudson.

In the photo, the mum-to-be posed with her guests at the event, who were all wearing floral crowns.

The group stood in front of a giant helium 'Baby' balloon, and Meredith reassured her followers that everyone had been tested for coronavirus beforehand.

In the caption, she wrote: "Cat (baby) is out of the bag! But still very much in the bag (placenta). What a wild gift to carry this sweet life. My soulmate/ husband and I are overjoyed.

"Thanks to my California nearest and dearest for this magical, heavily covid tested day."

Goldie was present at the births of all her grandchildren, and when it came to Bingham's arrival, the star was even ordering pizza in the delivery room!

As a result, Kate had to have a word with her mum before she gave birth to her youngest child Rani.

Goldie replied: "Yes, I had to ask your permission this time as last time it happened I ate too many Doritos in front of you, bought you a Lotus which is the worst thing to ask a pregnant woman, and you asked me to please put down my pizza.

"Then when I had whatever, you leaned over and said 'Mum, shut up!' while you were going through one of your major contractions."

She continued: "So this time I was careful, and I asked: 'Would it be okay? Do you want me in the room?' So I did ask permission, see I am a really fair mum."

The First Wives Club star adores nothing more than spending time with her grandchildren, and previously told Australian Women's Weekly: "A good family is the answer to happiness. I look at our kids and grandchildren and there's nothing in the world that could make me as proud as I am of all of them."

"Being a grandmother is amazing, I love it. It brings incredible joy. Family is so important," she added.
