Happy Birthday, Bellyitch Bumpwatch Babe and Mom-to-be,
The Emmy-nominated star of Scandal turns 37 today.
Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha of the National Football League are expecting their first child together since marrying last summer.
The Golden Globe nominee has a fan in the First Lady of the United States too.
In an interview that aired yesterday with Ryan Secrest, Mrs. Michelle Obama said she enjoys Washington in the hit ABC drama about fictional crisis manager Olivia Pope who solves national and international crisis while balancing internal turmoil about having an affair with the fictional president.
Oooh! Too close for comfort? Not for Mrs. O who caught up on the series during a very long flight to her vacation home in Hawaii over the Christmas break.
“I watched all the seasons, I caught up on ‘Scandal,’ I had never watched it,” the first lady said. “I love Kerry Washington, she is amazing, so it makes the show fun.”
