American model – Ireland Baldwin- and her boyfriend, musician RAC, recently threw a controversial baby shower with a strip club theme. The couple celebrated their upcoming baby’s arrival with a “baby blowout” party on March 6th. It featured decorations such as a cake with a “Baby’s First Strip Club” sign and champagne bottle imagery.
Ireland Baldwin, the 27-year old is pregnant with her first child. She showed off her bare baby bump in a lacy black dress. Along with it, she wore a pink wig, a sash, and a “Mom” ribbon pinned to her chest. The event received mixed reactions on social media, with some users finding it distasteful and objectifying to women.
However, Baldwin and RAC appeared to have had a fun time at the event, as they shared photos and videos on their social media accounts. The couple announced in December 2022 that they were expecting their first child after one year of dating.
This is not the first time a celebrity has thrown a themed baby shower. In recent years, several stars have hosted elaborate and unique parties to celebrate their upcoming bundles of joy, including Beyoncé’s “Carter Push Party” and Khloé Kardashian’s “Bear-y cute” baby shower.
While some people may find these events fun and harmless, others argue that they promote harmful stereotypes and objectify women. The controversy surrounding Baldwin’s strip club-themed party highlights the ongoing debate around the appropriateness of themed events for life’s major milestones.
