Drew Barrymore’s A-list baby shower

How’s this for an A-list baby shower?

Drew Barrymore, about to deliver her second child, celebrated at her Hollywood Hills home over the weekend with Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow and several dozen other friends and family.

People magazine reports alcohol, tables and chairs were delivered to the residence, but there was no news about the gift list: Um, what, exactly, does a movie star give another movie star’s infant? Barrymore, 39, and husband Will Kopelman, parents of 16-month-old Olive, are expecting their second daughter in two weeks.
