Give it up for our troops that are expecting. Michelle Obama recently visited a group of military moms-to-be who thought they were just in for a photo op, but the First Lady had other plans. Joining forces with non profit, Operation Shower and Glam4Good’s, Obama and beauty expert Mary Alice Stephenson surprised the group with a lavish baby shower and complimentary shopping spree at the Caserma Ederle U.S. military base in Italy. This sure beats the standard shower staple of playing that chocolate in a diaper game.
