Golden Globes Kerry Washington Pregnant Belly DebutJordan Strauss/Invision/AP

Kerry Washington has got the glow!

The Scandal star, nominated for best actress in a TV series – drama, debuted her baby belly at Sunday’s Golden Globes in a cream Balenciaga gown paired with Casadei sandals and Fred Leighton jewels.

“I have the best date of the night — my little accessory,” Washington, 36, joked to E!’s Ryan Seacrest as she gestured to her bump. The actress is due in late April, she told PEOPLE later in the night.

Absent from the red carpet was Washington’s husbandNnamdi Asomugha, a cornerback who retired from football in late December.

The couple married in late June in Hailey, Idaho. In October, news of their baby on the way was confirmed to PEOPLE.

On her way off the platform, Washington was stopped by fellow nominee Julianna Margulies, who took a moment to tell her that having a baby (son Kieran turns 6 this month) “was the best thing I ever did.”

She looks so beautiful. I love the dress. Nice to see a celebrity in a maternity dress that is not skin tight. This looks ethereal, chic, and comfortable. Excellent dress choice.

Fact sheet her husband retired from 49ers not raiders!

I like the dress, but feel it should have been altered better at the top of the bust…to much material, not enough bust.

Xan on

So elegant!

Why does she never let her husband accompany her? it’s not like he is employed now. I understand privacy but not secrecy.

RE: Team he retired from Indeed he retired from Oakland. After getting dropped he signed a one day contract so he could retire with his original team.

Leah- Maybe he doesn’t want to be in the public eye?

Anyway, she looks gorgeous!

This is how a pregnant lady should look. This is classy and comfortable and showcases the pregnancy without being too tight. Chris Hemsworth’s wife also looked good.

Theresa on

I don’t understand what people see in this woman. She is UGLY. I can’t get over those lips.

He was at the golden globes with her.

Leila, have you checked the facts that they and everyone else have, because he did in fact retire as a Raider.

She looks so beautiful. So sad that there always has to be one ugly person saying ugly things … not to mention the people so obsessed with her that they think they know her well enough to dictate where her husband should be (he was low key even when he was in the NFL … she probably loves that about him). Just because her husband retired from football doesn’t mean he is unemployed. He was involved in lots of things even as a player. I’m sure he’s still quite busy.

Gorgeous outfit, and she looks great with some weight on. It’s one thing to not want to talk about their marriage/r.ship, but I don’t see the harm in showing up together on the red carpet. Whatever! May be the whole thing is a sham!
