Kerry Washington feels ''really blessed'' to be expecting her first child.

The seven-months pregnant 'Scandal' star, who is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series at the Screen Actor's Guild (SAG) Awards in Los Angeles today (18.01.14), is eager to keep her cravings under-wraps but admits she is feeling really good.

Kerry, who married NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha in an intimate ceremony in Hailey, Idaho last June, told E! News: ''You know, it's sort of like the rest of my private life, I'm not talking about it that much, but I feel really really blessed it just feels like a really good time.''

But the 36-year-old actress, who called her baby bump ''the best date'' at the Golden Globe Awards last Sunday (12.01.14), is struggling to find things to wear to red carpet events.

She said: ''I look for things that fit. That's the first rule - what fits.''

She added: ''Of course, yeah! I mean, Louboutins are great but this is the best accessory, I think this year.''
