Kerry Washington celebrated her baby shower on Sunday and tons of celebrities attended the bash. The Scandal star's shower was a garden party in Los Angeles. Washington, 37, and her husband, Nnamdi Asomugha, 32, who is a former NFL player, are expecting their first child.
Washington and Asomugha were married last June in Idaho and have kept very quiet about the special day since. Washington told reporters back in October that she hates keeping secrets but is “really private about her personal life.”
Shonda Rhimes, who is the creator of Scandal, held the shower in her backyard. About 50 guests attended the event, including her co-star Darby Stanchfield and actresses Jane Fonda and Cicely Tyson. According to E! News, an eyewitness said that the guests began to arrive at about 11 a.m., where a valet service and security guards greeted them to make sure they were on the guest list.
Washington arrived shortly after her guests in her black Mercedes in a beautiful light blue dress. “She looked beautiful and had very little makeup on,” said the source. “She was with her Mom Valerie and was met by several family members inside.”
Actress Jane Fonda, 76, from The Butler, shared all the details about the party on her blog. “I hadn’t seen Kerry since she was pregnant and as soon as I saw her with her gorgeous belly I started crying,” she wrote. “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, filly realized, person.”
The source claimed that Washington looked happier than ever and was ecstatic to be with the people she loved. “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.”
The shower ended around 3 p.m. and Washington just didn’t want the day to be over. She stuck around to talk to friends and family and then made sure to thank Shonda with a hug and kiss before she took off with her mom. Washington is seven months pregnant and the happy couple are expecting the baby in the spring.
