In June, The Young and the Restless star Christel Khalil (Lily Winters) announced that she was expecting a baby with her fiancé, Sam Restagno. It will be their first child together. On Saturday, October 14, the happy couple was joined by family, friends, and a few co-stars at The Draycott restaurant in Pacific Palisades for a baby shower to celebrate the new edition to their family.
Khalil shared her special day with her followers on Instagram by posting a video featuring stills of the big day along with a message expressing her love for the people who had attended the event. The setting was stunning, featuring outdoor seating on a terrace, a canopy of colorful floral arrangements, balloons, a stunning cake, and, of course, plenty of gifts for the baby.
"Such a blast celebrating our new little one coming to the family. Thank you to @nikkifinninphoto for capturing the true essence of what a beautiful day it was!" Khalil posted in a message accompanying the video.
Guests included Khalil's co-stars Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman) and Bryton James (Devon Hamilton), who also happens to be godfather to Khalil's 13-year-old son, Michael Caden, from her previous marriage to musician Stephen Hensley. Actress Courtney Hope (Sally Spectra) commented on the video, "So fun!! Loved celebrating you!"
