It doesn’t get much cuter than a pregnant Kerry Washington, now does it?
While we still don’t have a word on the gender of her baby, the pregnant Scandal star was toasted at a baby shower held at Shonda Rhimes‘ home in Hancock Park on Sunday. About 50 guests — a mix of family and celebrity friends — gifted the actress in the backyard of Shonda’s house. In attendance were Jane Fonda and Scandal costar Darby Stanchfield.An eyewitness reports to E! News that the ladies-only shower started around 11 a.m. and guests came with present wrapped in pastel colors including blue, yellow, green and pink — no hints of the baby’s gender here! — and that the star was gifted with a load of baby clothes, stuffed plush animals, potted flowers and gift baskets.
The theme was a garden party of sorts, and was held on the back lawn under a tent next to the pool. And insider tells the network that the ladies sipped on lemonade and wine, and guests gave toasts to Kerry and talked about her impending motherhood.
Jane Fonda blogged about the event, and said that her longtime friend looked radiant.
“I hadn’t seen Kerry since she was pregnant and as soon as I saw her with her gorgeous belly I starting 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, 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.”
