There have been rumors flying for months that Scandal actress Kerry Washington was pregnant and last night at the Golden Globe Awards those rumors were put to rest! Washington debuted her baby bump in a beautiful white Balenciaga gown. She was absolutely glowing as she walked down the red carpet. During an interview she said that she loved the dress and that it felt like they had designed the dress specifically to feature her baby bump.
Washington is very quiet about her private life most of the time. She is married to former NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha who played for the Oakland Raiders as a cornerback. Washington says that she feels blessed and is so thankful for everything that is happening. She even got some motherly advice from Julianne Margulies who told her that having a child was the best thing that she had ever done in her life.
Before nabbing the lead role in Scandal Washington has been in television, movies, hip-hop music videos and has even been on Broadway. She has earned multiple award nominations for her roles. She won awards for her role in D’Jango Unchained, Ray, Night Catches Us, For Colored Girls, Lift, and Scandal.
On top of being a star of stage and screen she is also active in social awareness. She is a member of the Creative Coalition which is a group of people that explores issues in the country that are a cause of discourse for many. She is also a part of the group V-day which speaks out on issues of violence against women. She has been a political activist as well, supporting Barack Obama during his candidacy.
