For many reasons, couple’s shower (where men and women both are invited) is an appropriate way to celebrate a new baby.
First, new daddy has as much reason to celebrate and to be congratulated as mom-to-be. Second, daddy may enjoy opening presents as much as mom, maybe more so. Thirdly, if baby shower isn't held at their home, mommy will need dad to help load up presents and drive her home. After all, she hasn't had baby yet, and will probably be pretty tired by end of baby shower.
While this may be a new tradition, some men may actually enjoy baby shower as much as women. Although I doubt that most fathers-to-be would ever admit it to anyone, dad has to keep up that "macho" image after all.
It would be a nice touch to include gifts that are special for dad. Even though gifts are usually gifts for baby, and occassional gift for mom, dad wouldn't mind one or two for himself. Just don't let on that you know that. Let him keep his pride.
Generally, anyone who was invited to wedding can be invited to baby shower. Remember, this is a joyous celebration and you should spread joy, blessings and happiness to everyone that has an interest in family.
