Taylor Ward and Riyad Mahrez have thrown a luxurious baby shower to celebrate their upcoming arrival.
Model Taylor, 24, and her footballer boyfriend Riyad, 31, announced they were expecting their first baby together back in February and have been busy preparing for their little girl ever since.
Guests were greeted with a sweet sign that said “Welcome to Taylor and Riyad’s baby shower” as they entered the venue and greeted with a cocktail, before entering a room filled with pastel coloured balloons in pink, blue, yellow and purple.
Blonde beauty Taylor posted a selfie of herself in the car on the way to the shower saying that she was “forever late”, before sharing a video of the party’s gorgeous table decorations.

The tables were draped in a pink tablecloth and filled with lights with room for plenty of guests and each seat contained a personalised setting for each attendee.
They also had a table full of sweets and cakes for guests that matched the pastel theme across the rest of the event.
The couple recently revealed they were expecting a baby girl in a sweet gender reveal video which they shared to social media earlier this week.
The pair looked overjoyed as a balloon burst to reveal pink confetti falling to the ground, revealing they are having a daughter.
Posting on her Instagram page, Taylor, 24, said: “baby GIRL.. we can’t wait to meet you’, alongside a heart emoji.
After the confetti fell to the ground, the pregnant model walked over to her footballer husband and gave him a hug as pink and blue balloons floated up into Dubai’s skyline – with family and friends there to take photographs of the special occasion.
Taylor, who is the daughter of Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn Ward and retired footballer Ashley Ward, announced her pregnancy on Instagram back in February with a snap of her and Riyad, 31, holding a string of baby scan photos.
At the time she wrote: “Where life begins and love never ends”.
The pair started dating in early 2020 before getting engaged in a sun-soaked proposal in Mykonos, Greece, in June 2021, with the Manchester City star giving Taylor a £400,000 engagement ring.
At the end of 2021, the couple reportedly married in secret in a Muslim ceremony known as the Nikah, where they signed a contract which makes them legally married under Islamic law.
The pair will also be taking part in a second wedding day to make their union legal in the UK.
