The expecting mother teared up as she spoke to the guests at the event. "I have never felt in my life so much genuine joy for us, but also from all of you," Guthrie said, accompanied by Feldman, 45. "I kinda just can't get over it because when you say that you're happy for us or you give us a hug or you rub the belly, I know you really mean it. That means so much to me and us." 

"We feel like God has just rained down blessings upon us," she continued. "We are so thankful and just hope we can rise to the occasion and be good parents."

Held at New York City's The Glass Houses, Guthrie's baby shower included yummy snacks of donuts, mini hot dogs, and soft pretzels. As for gifts, guests brought a book for the baby, as well as one to donate to the needy children through the charity Baby Buggy
