Part beach fiesta, part sweet-as-can-be surprise gender revel, and part personal shopping experience from Top Shop - saying this was a memorable evening would be the understatement of the year. The darling Dave Annable and his beautiful wife, Odette, star of The Astronaut Wives Club, hosted an evening I’m sure they’ll cherish forever, and thanks to the lovely Hello Blue Photo, every magical moment was beautifully captured.
“It’s a Girl!” Dave Annable, star of Brothers & Sisters and Red Band Society, gushed after popping two oversized black balloons with wife Odette, Banshee and House actress, who will star in the upcoming Astronauts Wives Club this Summer. Pink confetti burst all over their beach front patio in Malibu, Ca., and tears of joy immediately followed as Dave embraced his wife in pure bliss!

It was May 9th, just a day before Mother’s Day, and also happened to be Odette’s 30th birthday. The parents-to-be, along with bestie and celebrity hair stylist Christine Symonds, were celebrating both of the girls “Dirty Thirty” with their closest friends. As a surprise to their guests, they also revealed the gender of their first baby! The special day was captured by Odette’s bestie since high school, Christina Wells, a wedding and lifestyle photographer.
The “Dirty Thirty” party included a taco cart, Mexican blankets, moroccan rugs and poufs, an open bar, a gorgeous Southern California sunset, and a surprise “Baby Gender Reveal”!
As guests arrived to celebrate the girls “Dirty Thirty”, they were offered Cucumber Mint Vodkas and Spicy Grapefruit Margaritas in mason jars with flower cut lids and sunset drink sleeves that read “I stole this from Odie + Teenie’s Dirty 30!” Not far off was a sizzling grill offering tacos with choice of chicken, carne asada, or carnitas and fresh chips and salsa, and my ever favorite home made guacamole. Guests were also invited to shop a pop up boutique with a Top Shop personal stylist while hanging out.
While mingling, they were asked to write their name on a giant chalkboard placing their vote for whether #babyannable would be a boy or girl! They were then invited to cuddle up with a nearby Mexican blanket, and enjoy the sunset as they swapped woven friendship bracelets to commemorate the day.
