Kerry Washington has celebrated her baby shower with a garden party-themed bash with about 40 of her family and celebrity friends.

The Scandal star, 37, wore a simple denim shirtdress and gold heels, and celebrated with friends Jane Fonda and co-stars Darby Stanchfield and Katie Lowes. Guests sipped lemonade and Champagne on the sunny winter Sunday.


The party was hosted at the home of Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes in L.A. – just a day after Washington won Outstanding Actress In A Drama Series and the show took home the Outstanding Drama Series award at the NAACP Image Awards.

Washington has not revealed the baby’s sex, with guests bringing gifts wrapped in neutral tones like yellow and green. She is due to give birth in the autumn.
