We think the minie Kerry is ready to pop anytime soon.

Kerry Washington was the guest of honor at her baby shower on Sunday – a garden-themed, intimate celebration thrown at the home of Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes, with about 50 guests in attendance.

According to  E!, the soon-to-be mom arrived at her shower at 11 am in her black Mercedes and rocked a light blue dress that was tied around the waist. The site reports:

According to an eyewitness, guests with gifts in tow started arriving to the ladies-only shower at 11 a.m. and were greeted by valets and security guards with a guest list. The presents were wrapped in pastel colors including blue, yellow, green and pink, and there were a ton of baby clothes, stuffed plush animals, potted flowers and gift baskets in the mix.

A source also revealed:

“She looked beautiful and had very little makeup on,” the source continued. “She was with her mom Valerie and was met by several family members inside.”

Guests, one of which was Jane Fonda, enjoyed lemonade and wine as people gave the superstar toasts and talked all about the excitement of becoming a mom.

 Kerry’s sister-in-law Chisara Asomugha, me, Cicely Tyson, Kerry’s other sister-in-law, Udo Asomugha (in red), Kerry, Diahann Carroll and Kerry’s mother-in-law, Dr. Lilian Asomugha.

E!’s source dished:

“Kerry looked ecstatic to be surrounded by so many family members and friends. She loved mixing her work friends with her family and having everyone get to know each other. Shonda was very gracious to host everyone and Kerry was very appreciative. She felt so loved she didn’t want the day to end. She gave Shonda a huge hug and kiss before thanking her and leaving with her mom.”

The site reports that Kerry’s baby shower ended around 3pm, but she stuck around to chat with Rhimes and her extended family. This will be Kerry’s first child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha.

We believe congratulations are in order for the couple. We can’t wait to meet the new bundle of joy.

EXCLUSIVE BABY NEWS: SCANDAL’S KERRY WASHINGTON IS PREGNANT WITH FIRST CHILD WITH HUSBAND NNANDI ASOMUGHA

Posted on Updated on

Kerry Washington, like her Scandal alter ego Olivia Pope, sure knows how to keep a secret. The 36-year-old actress, who married NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha in a super covert ceremony in June, has yet another surprise on the way — a baby! As the new issue of Us Weekly exclusively reveals, the Scandal star is pregnant with her first child.

“She’s about four months along,” a pal tells Us of Washington. (Thus far, the mom-to-be has kept any hint of a baby bump concealed under roomy dresses.) 

This will be the first child for the Emmy-nominated beauty, who married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Asomugha on June 24 in Hailey, Idaho. According to reports, the couple first started dating in the summer of 2012; Washington was previously engaged to actor David Moscow

Asked about her top-secret wedding in an interview with Glamour magazine in September, the Django Unchained actress said she had “learned through experience” that talking about her personal life just “doesn’t work” for her.

“I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it,” she explained. “But I couldn’t just turn around and say, ‘I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.’ So I just thought, ‘Okay, no more.'”

That said, Washington isn’t trying to dupe anyone. “I’m walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you,” she said. “But I’m going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold.”

BEHOLD!KERRY WASHINGTON IS PEOPLE’S BEST DRESSED WOMAN OF THE YEAR

It seems like this year is the petite star’s year. Kerry Washington has somehow wormed her way into the hearts of  people with her stellar portrayal of Olivia Pope in Scandal and has also unknowingly gotten hitched with Nigerian American ,Nnamdi Asomugha.

The sweet looking actress has managed to get a nod from  PEOPLE magazine as their Best Dressed Woman of the Year. She is got everyone’s approval and an Essence endorsement too.

This is what Essence wrote on their site about her

The annual list places Washington atop more than two-dozen of Tinseltown’s favorite fashion mavens—including ESSENCE Festival alumna Solange Knowles, who makes the list for her confident risk-taking style.

The 36-year-old actress has had a number of breath-taking red carpet looks this year including the sparkling embellished Miu Miu dress she wore to the Golden Globe Awards (above) that had everyone saying, “Wow!”

Even as Olivia Pope in the ABC hit series, Scandal, Washington is setting fashion trends.

When talking fashion inspiration, Washington has a simple recipe: just be yourself. “For me the goal is to feel comfortable, event-appropriate and to be an elevated, more special version of myself or to feel like the best version of myself in that context and just be in the moment,” she told PEOPLE.

Being the elevated version of herself has taken Washington far this year even earning her an Emmy nomination as the leading lady of Scandal. It looks like Washington, who is newly married to San Francisco 49ers cornerback ,Nnamdi Asomugha has much to celebrate.

We can’t wait to see what Kerry has prepared for the Emmy award red carpet this Sunday.

We’ll be watching!

Yes, we can’t  wait ,what do you think about their Kerry Washington looks this year? Did she score high scores for you?
