Kerry Washington is unstoppable!
The Scandal star is on top of her game, and People magazine is declaring her the most powerful African American woman in Hollywood! She graces the cover of their new issue, and they write that as she walked into a Saturday Night Live after-party, the private star grabbed the hand of her husband, former 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, and held it in public.
The expectant parents partied into the wee hours and celebrated with friends.
“Kerry’s in it to win it, and she’s winning,” her friend Joe Reinstein, who worked with her during Barack Obama‘s two presidential campaigns, tells PEOPLE in its new issue, on stands Friday. “She deserves everything.”
Of her new marriage, a pal tells the magazine: “They’re the same person. They have the same values, and are very close to their families.”
Reinstein also adds that she’ll be a fantastic mom: “Kerry’s got her values straight. This is going to be one lucky kid.”
