“It was completely about the new baby,” Brittany, who is due in February (their son Memphis is 11 months old), tells PEOPLE for this week’s issue. “It was such a good day. And it was nice to celebrate a girl. I’m so ready for her to get here!”
Friends and family (including Aldean’s daughters Kendyl, 11, and Keeley, 15) gathered at Allenbrooke Farms in Spring Hill, Tennessee, for a tropical-themed coed party.
“Jason and I both love the beach, so we loved the palm leaves and bright colors,” explains the mom-to-be. “It was beautiful.”
“We created a list and both were throwing names in there throughout the past few months and Navy happened to be the one we liked the most,” Brittany tells PEOPLE. “I chose Rome because I really wanted to name our son Roman but Jason wasn’t a fan so this was my way of sliding that in there!”
When it came to food and drinks at the event, comfort food, provided by Dannie Holmes Catering, reigned. Says Brittany, “We had a mashed-potato bar, a macaroni-and-cheese bar and a donut bar, because I love the Dunkin’ Donuts with strawberry sprinkles. It was all the good ‘bad’ food!”

Copper Whisk Cakes provided a unique dessert. “Both pregnancies I’ve had a craving for Fruity Pebbles,” says Brittany. “So they made a Fruity Pebble cake!”
