Monica and Shannon Brown

The invitations to Monica Brown's baby shower have gone out. Monica and her husband, Phoenix Suns star Shannon Brown are expecting their first baby -- a girl -- in September. The happy couple have already chosen the baby's name: Laiyah.

According to my source, Mo and Shannon are ecstatic. Both are parents of boys, so a girl will be a welcome addition to their family.

Monica's baby shower for family and close friends will be held at a private residence in Atlanta next weekend. The elegantly appointed invitation is pictured after the break. Monica's sons, Romelo Montez Hill, 5, and Rocko Ramone Hill III, 8, are so excited. They can't wait for their baby sister to arrive!

Monica and Shannon were photographed exclusively by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks. Congrats again to the happy couple!

    Congrats to the married and happy couple for their new bundle of joy. Really for not playing and just saying the name. Cause really you know, what's all the secrecy for. People have babies like every 5 minutes.

    I'm most interested her invites. I LOVE THEM. When I purchase my gold fish, I will send out announcements. Mine will be purple and gold glitter. #youcare

    Happy Sunday :waves: @ everyone.
    Shannon & Mo look great together. Congrats. Little girls put you in check.
    Wish me luck, Grand has a bday party to attend. I've already reminded her that it's not her bday, and she can't blow out the candles. As I stated ^^^^^ Little girls try to check you. My Grand got mad at me for not buying toys for a dog we don't have. While in line buying a bday card, she kept pointing at me, jumping up and down, and calling me "Grandma". I ignored her little butt. As soon as we walked out the store she said "Gannie". :lol:

  • Sandra Rose

    Happy Sunday everyone! :waves:

  • mayrenest

    Happy Sunday Auntie!!!!!

  • ReadingIsFundamental

    the "non-transferable" on the invitation threw me off. What in the hell is someone going to try and transfer the invitation to? lol. Congrats though.

  • ReadingIsFundamental

    *or who rather? "Hey, Tiny, you can't make that baby shower... please transfer that invite to me!

    no, I don't see it happening.

  • flsun99

    I know they are going to have a cute baby girl. I'm starting to really like these two.

  • Bird

    Monica has always been a pretty girl, but now that she is all happy and glowing she is truly more beautiful than ever. I'm so happy for her and Shannon.

  • Leslie

    Congratulations to Monica and Shannon! I was praying that they would have a girl! That is such a blessing. Tiny named the baby. Isn't this name the same name as the daughter that Tiny and Tip lost before having Major?

  • MzTee

    Monica looks stunning is this picture. They both look so happy and I like them together as a couple. Congrats on the baby girl. She's going to be a cutie.
