Yummy Mummy star Maria DiGeronimo has held what was probably the biggest (and only) Versace-themed baby shower Adelaide has ever seen – complete with sonogram balloons.
Tuesday night’s episode of the Channel Seven reality series saw the business owner put on a celebration of all things Donatella Versace – and you know, her impending bundle of joy.

Maria was over-the-moon with the day, but it only got better when the event was over and – after tallying her earnings – her husband Carlos presented her with his gift.
Carlos led his wife into a room with a spread of $15,000 worth of Versace accessories – including a monogrammed travel bag and giant gold necklace – accompanied by a $7000 “money bouquet” of rolled up $100 bills.
“I know you don’t like flowers, so I got you a bouquet of money,” he said.
Last, but not least, Carlos revealed he had booked a room at luxury hotel Palazzo Versace on the Gold Coast for their honeymoon. Because of course.
