Kerry Washington Celebrates With Intimate, Garden-Themed Baby Shower


45th NAACP Image Awards Presented By TV One - Red Carpet
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 our friends over at 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.

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. Mazel Tov to the couple. We can’t wait to meet your new bundle of joy.
