Pregnant Kerry Washington Debuts Baby Bump (and Purple Hair!) at Met Gala

05/02/2016 at 08:30 PM ET

Kerry Washington debuted her baby bump in the most glamorous way possible.

At Monday’s Met Gala, the Scandal star rubbed her belly on the red carpet wearing a sequined Marc Jacobs gown that featured a thigh-high slit. The mom-to-be paired her black dress with sheer polka dot gloves (also by Marc Jacobs) and Gianvito Rossi shoes.

Not only did she debut her bump, Washington, 39, also revealed a new purple hairstyle! And Gladiators, you’re in luck: the actress gave fans a closer look at her designer gown and also shared photos from inside the star-studded event.

The actress is expecting her second child with her husband, former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. The couple, who secretly wed in June 2013, are already parents to 2-year-old daughter Isabelle Amarachi.

We’re looking forward to more ultra-glam maternity style from Washington this year.

not digging this look that’s surprising because I normally love Kerry’s chic and classy style…she looks like a witch maybe that was the look she was going for?!?

I like Kerry Washington and I love the Scandal Show..and Her Hair looks great but I do not like the dress or the gloves.
The article said her husband was a former “Cornerback for the SF Giants football team? I am sure they meant Quarterback”.. Guess People does not do spellchecks.

Love her, she looks beautiful.

EDIE there is a position in football called a corner back. They are correct. .Google it.

MissAmour on

EDIE, nope. People did NOT mean quarterback because there is in fact a position in football called cornerback. Maybe look it up before you start criticizing people next time.

Why getting pregnant so important these days. Thought having a career was.
