Oprah Hosts 'World's Biggest' Baby Shower

Talk show host OPRAH WINFREY has continued her streak of generosity by hosting a gigantic baby shower for the pregnant wives of 640 American soldiers.

The billionaire, who gave away $7 million (GBP3.8 million) worth of cars to all 276 members of her studio audience last week (ends17SEP04), visited Kentucky's Fort Campbell earlier this week (ends24SEP04) with gifts for the spouses of troops in the 101st Airbone Division.

Winfrey dubbed the event, which will be featured on her TV show, the World's Biggest Baby Shower. It was attended by CINDY CRAWFORD, MARTINA McBRIDE and KENNY CHESNEY.

The 101st returned to America earlier this year (04), following a 12-month deployment.

Winfrey says, "It's a way of honouring the sacrifice without doing a lot of big speeches and oh la la la la. It's a way of saying, 'We see you. We hear you. We know what you do to make our lives safer, and we thank you for it.'"
