SHE'S a regular on the social scene – but this was a bash with a difference.

Mum-to-be Pippa O'Connor (28) was spoiled by friends and family at her recent baby shower. A glowing Pippa – who is expecting her first child in April – wore a floral frock as she posed for photos with her mum and close friend Brian Dowling at the event in 37 on Dawson Street.

Fellow model Sarah Kavanagh was also there – as part of her business Mud Pie beauty – and treated attendees to manicures.

Lucky Pippa was inundated with gifts, including a special cake. Taking to Twitter, she told her followers she's due to give birth in a matter of weeks and the "countdown" has begun.
