The beautician donned an elegant one-shoulder hot-pink gown that perfectly framed her bump, whilst Karim opted for a chequered knitted pink jumper made up of medium and light pink squares. 

As for decorations, the couple had a balloon arch comprised of pink, rose gold and white balloons of all different sizes. Under the arch was a bright pink board that was slightly obscured from view but the message welcomed guests to the beautiful shower. 

The couple are thought to have been dating since 2021 following Karim's appearance on Celebs Go Dating.
