Pregnant Kerry Washington and Blake Lively Debuted Their Baby Bumps at the 2016 Met Gala: Watch

The hottest accessory at the 2016 Met Gala: a baby bump! Just hours after Us Weekly revealed that Kerry Washington is pregnant with her second child, the Scandal actress officially debuted her burgeoning belly at the annual fashion bash on Monday, May 2, in NYC. Washington joined fellow expectant moms Emily Blunt and Olivia Wilde, who arrived arm in arm in arm, plus Blake Lively at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Watch the video above for all the details — including how Washington confirmed her pregnancy on the red carpet!  (Like Washington, Blunt, Wilde and Lively are all second-time moms-to-be.)

Washington and her former NFL player husband Nnamdi Asomugha, are parents of daughter Isabelle, 2. In a cover story for the April 2016 issue of Elle, the 39-year-old opened up about how playing crisis manager Olivia Pope on Scandal prepared her for motherhood. "Even though Olivia Pope has obviously made the decision that she is not a mom," Washington said, referencing Pope’s choice to get an abortion, "playing her made me feel like I could be a mom. Because she knows there's always another way — there's always a way to fix it, there's always a way to solve it, to win."
