The internet went ablaze during the Oscars on Mar. 2 when host Ellen DeGeneres asked the audience if anyone wanted pizza and pregnant Kerry Washington eagerly raised her hand. But did she ever get a slice to snack on? Find out!
Kerry Washington Craves Gluten-Free Pizza
When Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres walked through the audience asking some of the biggest stars if they were in the mood for pizza, Kerry Washington was one of the first to raise her hands. It didn’t take long for her enthusiastic reaction to circle the internet in gif form, and before we knew it everyone was really hoping she would get a slice — and soon.
However, when Ellen showed up with three pies and handed slices out, Kerry ended up turning her down. What happened to make Kerry change her mind? Well, it’s a simple answer — the Scandal actress is actually gluten-free!
Later on, Kerry shared a photo of herself snacking on pizza in the green room backstage, nonchalantly explaining why she had turned the pizza away: “Yes! @TheEllenShow There IS gluten-free pizza!!!! #OSCARS #greenroom.”
Kerry’s First Baby Due This Spring
Noticeably on display at the Oscars was Kerry’s baby bump, which is growing by the day! In Feb. 2014 she celebrated her baby shower at Scandal creator’s home, Shonda Rhimes. The actress wore denim blue to the shower, sparking the idea that she just might be carrying a baby boy!
While no official birth date has been announced, it’s clear that Kerry is due within just a few months, if not weeks.
