The stork is going to be busy flying to Fort Campbell Army Base the next few months; recently the worlds biggest baby shower was held at the base and was hosted by Oprah Winfrey.

Oprah made a surprise appearance at Fort Campbell's Army Base on September 20.

"I have never seen so many big bellies in all my life," Oprah said.

Bowling Green native, Courtney Mason, was one of 600 invited to the surprise baby shower. Mason says each mommy-to-be received a letter asking if they wanted to attend something special.

"They didn't come out and tell us what the event was going to be but expressed that it would be a once in a lifetime experience," Mason said.

Fort Campbell was chosen for the surprise baby shower because it's the only post that had a huge baby boom. Approximately, 640 babies will be born between September and December.

Cindy Crawford, Kenny Chesney, and Martina McBride were just a few of the big names at the baby shower, and each expectant mother walked away with over $2,000 worth of gifts.

Mason will deliver any day now and will have a baby boy.

Her husband, LaMont has been home since January after serving two years in Afghanistan and Iraq.

You can catch the biggest baby shower at 4:00 p.m. Monday, on WBKO-TV.
