A real-life “Crazy Rich Asian” couple from Malaysia recently held a lavish baby shower that had guests guessing the baby’s gender using designer handbags.

Berjaya Times Square CEO Chryseis Tan and her husband, Naza scion SM Faliq Nasimuddin, celebrated their baby’s impending arrival at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Kuala Lumpur.

The pastel-themed event included a gender reveal party in which guests participated in a guessing game featuring recently released Gucci handbags that cost around $1,300 each, Malay Mail reports.

Guests were told to place their guesses for the gender of the baby in the luxury brand’s latest GG Marmont small shoulder bags, blue for a baby boy and pink for a baby girl.
