All eyes may have been on Confirmation star Kerry Washington, who portrays historic lawyer and activist Anita Hill, at the flick’s premiere in L.A. Thursday night, but the attention shifted to co-star Erika Christensen when she arrived on the red carpet. The 33-year-old Parenthood star announced her excitement for motherhood as she strut her cutting figure in a sleeveless, satin oxblood Veronica Beard dress with a plunging neckline and matching Anne Sisteron earrings that together not only helped the now 5-months-pregnant beauty glow, but also glamorously showcased her growing baby bump.
So was her grand arrival a surprising splash? Not exactly. On Wednesday, the actress, who married cyclist Cole Maness back in September, took to Twitter to hilariously hint at the news of a baby girl. “This boy is getting a little sister. A human sister. She’ll make her first appearance tomorrow at #Confirmation,” she wrote alongside two cuddly pictures of her little pup Ronnie.
For Christensen, the evening was ultimately all about celebration the new project, in which she portrays Shirley Wiegand, one of Hill’s confidants. That on-camera camaraderie was also evident IRL, considering the two beauties—Washington in a stunning floral Dolce & Gabbana dress—posed for pictures and radiated together.
Congratulations to the star!
