Washington’s baby shower

Kerry Washington celebrates baby’s impending birth with a star-studded shower.

The Scandal star is expecting her first child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha.

According to E! News, the show’s creator Shonda Rhimes hosted the affair at her Hancock Park home with 50 guests in attendance.

Jane Fonda and Scandal co-star Darby Stanchfield were reportedly among those at the joyous event.

“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 outlet reports.

“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.”

Kerry was reportedly seen arriving moments later. The mother-to-be was glowing in a pale blue dress lightly cinched at the waist.

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

The party wrapped up after about four hours. But insiders said Kerry was reluctant to leave and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon with family.

"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," the insider said.

"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."

E! reported in October Kerry and husband Nnamdi were expecting.

The couple are believed to have wed last June in Blaine County, Idaho.
