Jessa Duggar's baby shower was surprisingly progressive

Jessa Duggar just celebrated her pregnancy with a baby shower, and some of the people on the guest list will surprise you for such a traditional family.

The shower was a blowout, according to guests, and it was filmed for Jessa and Jill's spinoff TLC special series, Jill & Jessa: Counting On.

"It was really fun," a source close to the family told People, revealing one surprising detail: Unlike traditional baby showers, men were invited, too!

"There were guys there, anyone could go," said the source. "It was good. There was a lot of everybody."

Jessa is sure to have made out like a bandit with baby gifts, even if no one knows the sex yet — in fact, that could be all the better. Jinger, for one, is not letting that little detail stop her from shopping up a storm and instead is hedging her bets in both directions, according to this pic Jessa posted on Instagram recently.

Jessa is due very soon — Nov. 1 — and the source said that just as she appears on her Instagram photos, the mother-to-be is absolutely radiant.

"She's looking the part," the insider said. "She's adorable. She didn't gain any weight in her face at all. She's absolutely flawless!"

The baby shower footage will be a happy counterpoint to the subject matter we saw on the preview of the special released earlier this week, in which Jessa and Jill discussed the effects their brother Josh's shocking sex scandal had on them and the rest of the family. The special will follow Jill, her husband and their infant son, Israel, as they travel to South America on a church trip, and Jessa and her new husband as they enjoy their new marriage and first pregnancy.
