Shonda Rhimes gave Kerry Washington a baby shower to remember on Sunday (February 23), having stars from near and far attend and give well wishes to the ‘Scandal’ actress who is expecting her first child to arrive this Spring. Kerry rocked the casual look by wearing a jean dress with black headband. The actress showed off her ability to be stylish in casual clothing, wearing high heels that were no more than two inches off the ground.


“She looked beautiful and had very little makeup on,” said one inside source. “She was with her mom Valerie and was met by several family members inside.” Fitness guru Jane Fonda was one of the celebrity guests in attendance and had this to say about the event:

Today I was at Kerry Washington’s baby shower. She’s 7 months pregnant and looking radiant. It was a wonderful party with guests being asked to go into a photo booth and take 6 different poses that were then mounted on a black paper where we could write a message; signing a diaper (I wrote “I hope everything comes out alright!”), putting signed thumb prints onto a drawing of a tree—I had no idea there could be so many nice ways to commemorate the up-coming event and leave loving memories for mom and baby.

I hadn’t seen Kerry since she was pregnant and as soon as I saw her with her gorgeous belly I starting crying. Then Kerry’s mother spoke, giving words of wisdom to Kerry and the rest of us about how to raise a baby to be a happy, fully realized, person. I started crying again (and it wasn’t because I wanted to go back and do my own raising of my own kids all over again with more wisdom, though that did press in on me) . . . it was because her words moved me.

Kerry stunned on the red carpet at the 45th NAACP Image Awards that were held on Saturday (February 22). The actress wore a beautiful blue gown with salmon-colored accent that simply made her glow.

Washington and her husband, Nnamdi Asomugha, announced their expectancy last October. The couple wed on June 24, 2013.
