Kerry Washington! The Scandal star wins Everything Pregnancy’s Preggy Award for the most stunning, effortlessly gorgeous mama-to-be. Where do I start? The Old Hollywood glamour of the half-up coif, the berry lips, the eye-catching eye makeup, subtle Jennifer Meyer sparkle, and a beautiful, belly-skimming Jason Wu gown in violet—it doesn’t get any better than Kerry!
Best Makeup: Olivia Wilde
The actress—who is set to go back to work two months after she delivers her baby—was positively polished as if she was channeling Audrey Hepburn in a simple-yet-chic black column Valentino gown, romantic updo and—the reason Olivia wins this category—amazing cat eyes. Meow!
Best Accessory: Elsa Pataky
And, no, I’m not talking about Elsa’s Graziela Gems earrings and blinged-out bracelet by Dana Rebecca Designs! Elsa is a gorgeous and glowing pregnant gal (who is carrying twins!), and she looks even better with her equally-hot hubby, Chris Hemsworth, by her side (but who wouldn’t?!). They’re like the modern-day Ken and Barbie!
Best Bump-Hugging Dress: Kristin Cavallari
While E! had the fashion maven comment on everyone else’s red carpet style, I was in awe of Kristin’s Alexander McQueen gown that was truly fit for a goddess. The white confection hugged the soon-to-be mama of two‘s curves in all of the right places (especially her belly!), making her look feminine and flawless.

Be Beautiful, Who Is Pregnant
Monday, January 13th, 2014
Yes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were hilarious as the hosts of the Golden Globes. Yes, the always glam Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams all won coveted best actress trophies (best supporting for JLaw), but if you ask
me it was really the pregnant presenters who stole the show! Olivia Wilde stunned in a long-sleeved, emerald-green sequined Gucci gown, which she paired with an Emm Kuo clutch and Forevermark diamonds. While we were all oohing and awing over her, the self-deprecating star admitted, “Until about a week ago, I just looked fat!” she said. “I wanted to be like, ‘I’m not fat, I’m pregnant!’” (Um, I think we’ve all been there at one time or another!)
The soon-to-be first-time mom was absolutely giddy about all things baby. Not only did the loose-lipped star reveal she and fiancé Jason Sudeikis are having a boy (who was kicking her all the way down the red carpet!), but during an interview with Ryan Seacrest Olivia also spilled her son’s due date. The Star Wars fan says it’s easy for her to remember. All she has to say is, “May the fourth be with you.” That’s right—May 4—just one week before Mother’s Day. What a fab early Mom’s Day present!
But she wasn’t the only bumpilicious beauty of the night. The always perfectly-styled Kerry Washington did not disappoint her fashion fans. Decked out in a custom-made white Balenciaga gown, matching Balenciaga clutch, open-toed Casadei shoes and Fred Leighton jewels, she proudly announced, “I have the best date of the night, my little accessory here,” as she touched her growing belly.
And Drew Barrymore, who is pregnant with baby #2 and is due in late March/early April, wore a lovely Monique Lhuillier gown covered in floral appliqués, red Roger Vivier shoes, a sparkly Edie Parker clutch and jewelry by Chanel. She couldn’t thank her dress designer enough. “She’s making a pregnant lady feel really good right now,” Barrymore told E! She then explained to People why she chose the dress in the first place, “It’s hearts and flowers and pink, all of my favorite things. When I saw it, I said, ‘It’s perfect.’ It’s comfortable and it’s easy—two very important things when you’re pregnant!”
Olivia, Kerry and Drew were looking so gorgeous that women were even commenting that they wanted to get pregnant just so they could look as beautiful as these ladies with their full, flowing locks and natural glows. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Not so fast! Before I announce the winner, let’s recap the “nominees” aka all of the lovely pregnant stars of 2013 (well, most of them—there isn’t enough space or time to go over every single one of them but these are the highlights!).
In the newsmakers category we have Kate Middleton, who was the picture of perfection—period. Jessica Simpson was a boho goddess in major maxis. Though Kim Kardashian was often criticized for her fashion (and her pregnancy weight gain), I think she was graceful under pressure (that said, note to pregnant women everywhere: a head-to-toe, long sleeve, high-neck rose-patterned gown is not a good look—ever).
As for our favorite musicians, Shakira’s hips didn’t—and still don’t—lie. Even nine months pregnant, she was just as perky and petite as ever (how’d she do it?). Fergie was able to maintain her rocker edge from start to finale (I wanted an encore!). Gwen Stefani has been the master of (bump) disguise in fashion-forward staples any girl would die for (especially me!).
Then you have the sweet girl-next-door types who’ve melted our hearts with every interview or Twitter post about what it means to be a mom: Drew Barrymore (I am eating up every gushing word she utters!), Jennifer Love Hewitt (I wish your mom was still alive to see your adorable bump!), Kristen Bell (cuteoverload!), and Jenna Dewan-Tatum (who was one of the most stunning pregnant women ever! Am I right?).
And we can’t forget the mamas-to-be who just recently surprised us all with their pregnancy news: Kelly Clarkson (sending morning sickness-ending vibes your way, girl!), Olivia Wilde (the kid’s going to have looks and humor!), Ginnifer Goodwin (yes, I’m a little jealous! First, you had an on and off-screen fairytale romance, now you’re getting your happy ending!) and Kerry Washington (brains, beauty and unbelievable style!).
And the title for most Googled pregnant woman of 2013 goes to…drum roll, please! KIM KARDASHIAN! Now here’s the top 10 list of the most Googled pregnant babes of 2013 in descending order:
1. Kim Kardashian
2. Kate Middleton
3. Megan Fox
5. Jessica Simpson
6. Halle Berry
7. Tamar Braxton
8. Olivia Wilde
9. Kerry Washington
10. Jennifer Love Hewitt

Who Is Pregnant
Tuesday, December 10th, 2013
Talk about must-see TV! On any given Thursday night at 10 pm, your butt is probably firmly planted on the couch watching one of the most buzzed about shows on TV, Scandal (and if it isn’t, it should be!). Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope is just the coolest, most brilliant and powerful badass who has ever walked in Louboutins. She runs (or at least fixes!) Washington, and she looks fantastic while doing it! What’s not to love?
When I heard Kerry Washington and her hubby Nnamdi Asomugha were pregnant, I was so excited. Love her! Love her wardrobe! She’s just going to be the cutest pregnant woman ever, I thought (and she’s proving me right!). Then I started to think, How will this affect the show? Will Olivia have a love child with the President? Or will they choose not to add the pregnancy to the plot, and she’ll just be at her desk a lot, or carrying really conspicuous file boxes in front of her at all times?
Well, now I know the pregnancy will not be incorporated in—which I’m fine with. But, sadly, Kerry’s surprise pregnancy means a shortened Scandal season. Say it isn’t so, ABC! Unfortunately, it’s true. In order to work around Kerry’s pregnancy, the network has decided to cut the season by four episodes, from 22 down to 18.
According to TVLine, “The actress’ spring due date would’ve made shooting those final four episodes next to impossible (and, according to sources, writing Olivia out of the show for an extended period of time was not an option.)”
In the end, of course I want Kerry to take things easy. Filming those super-intense, drama-filled scenes can’t be easy on her or the baby. The spring can’t come soon enough! Hurry up and have that baby, Kerry, so we can have our beloved Olivia back!

As if Scandal beauty Kerry Washington wasn’t glowing enough already, now she really will be—she’s pregnant with her first child! Us Weekly reports that it can exclusively confirm the actress is four months pregnant (so she’s in her second trimester!) with San Francisco 49ers football star, and new hubby, Nnamdi Asomugha. The two married June 24 in a hush-hush ceremony in Hailey, Idaho, so it’s no surprise the stealthy actress, who plays the master of cover-ups and spins on her hit ABC show, has also been able to keep her pregnancy top secret.
The super-stylish mom-to-be has been concealing her baby bump under loose-fitting designer dresses for months. Now, I can’t wait to see how she dresses her growing bump. She’s going to look so cute in maternity wear! If anyone can pull off mommy chic, it’s Kerry!
Then there’s the question of how they’ll handle her real-life pregnancy on Scandal. Will she be holding lots of important file boxes in front of her belly? Be sitting behind a desk for tons of scenes? Or will she have an unplanned pregnancy with the President of the United States? So many questions!
