“Andrew loves to kiss and hug,” Amber told Us in August. “He’s already obsessed with this baby and every single day he’s, like, ‘I can’t wait for her to get get here. Where’s this baby? I need her to come now.’ Honestly, he’s going to be a much better parent than I am.”

Not only did Amber look gorgeous at her baby shower — she felt fantastic and revealed that she hadn’t suffered from any pregnancy symptoms such as swollen feet. “I’ve felt the whole time,” she told Us. “I had been warned by so any moms that being pregnant in the summertime is really difficult, just because you get get hot and sweaty and winded. But I haven’t had any of those issues. I’ve felt really myself.”
