When it comes to celebrating the life of a new child, parents have moved from only hosting baby shower celebrations and gender reveals to adding baby welcoming parties. A baby welcoming party is a celebration that is held after the baby arrives home for family and friends to see and welcome home.
Business mogul and reality TV star Shauwn Mkhize threw an epic baby welcoming celebration to welcome her son Andile Mpisane and daughter-in-law Tamia’s newborn, baby Miaandy Mpisane.
Taking to her Instagram page, Shauwn posted images from the day and expressed in the caption how happy she is to welcome her third grandchild home.
“Welcome Home Baby Royal AM. You are loved beyond measure and we are all excited to watch you grow. You have extended our family and our hearts are full. Thank you for being our ray of sunshine and beacon of hope. We love you and we will always stand by your side,” she captions a picture where family and friends can be seen waiting for the baby to arrive.

In a separate post shared on her Instagram page, Tamia captured the moments from when they left the hospital up until they got to the baby welcoming celebration and also showed a glimpse of baby Miaandy’s nursery, which is filled with designer furniture and garments.
“Today has been so special and one of the most memorable days of my life. We finally got to take our beautiful baby girl home. She’s only 2 days old and I’m madly in love with her, I can’t believe she’s mine and I thank God for trusting me with her. @andilempisane10 22 hours of labour and you never left my side. I’m so grateful for your love and support. We did it babe!,” she writes in the caption.
Shauwn is not the first celebrity to host an extravagant baby welcoming party. Singer and reality TV star Londie London hosted a Sip & See baby welcoming celebration for her son, Umi. The celebration aired on an episode of the Real Housewives of Durban and had a blue and white theme.
