Kerry Washington Celebrates Baby Shower With Her A-List Celebrity Pals

Kerry Washington's baby shower was quite the star-studded event.

The 'Scandal' actress celebrated with her celebrity pals at Shonda Rhimes' Los Angeles home on Sunday (Feb 23rd).

50 guests joined in with the festivities, including actresses Jane Fonda, Cicely Tyson and Tracee Ellis Ross, and Washington's 'Scandal' co-star Darby Stanchfield, at the garden party, E!News reports.

The female only party commenced at 11 a.m. where guests began arriving with presents in tow, until the women of the moment graced them with her presence.

Washington, who is well into her pregnancy, arrived at the garden bash in a long blue dress and modest heels, around 11:15 a.m.

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

"Kerry looked ecstatic to be surrounded by so many family members and friends," the source added. "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."

Jane Fonda enjoyed the celebration so much that she later wrote about it on her blog, saying that the image of seven-month pregnant Kerry brought tears to her eyes.

"I hadn't seen Kerry since she was pregnant and as soon as I saw her with her gorgeous belly I starting crying," the 'Butler' actress 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."

Washington is expecting her first baby with husband, and former NFL player, Nnamdi Asomugha. The couple married last summer (June 2013) in secret and they still remain tight lipped about their wedding day.
