Kerry Washington rang in her 44th birthday with love, positivity, and a generous dose of nostalgia. The "Scandal" star shared this sweet throwback photo to mark her special day, and fans are all for it!
"How to Get Away with Murder" star Kerry Washington gracefully turned 44 on January 31. To commemorate the special day, the actress took a trip down memory lane with a throwback photo.
Taking to Instagram, Washinton shared a photo of herself from when she was younger. With short hair and a white headband, she looked cute in a pastel blue button-down sweater.
Washington's fringes curtained her forehead as she leaned down and puckered her lips to blow the 14 candles atop her delicious-looking birthday cake. Another pink cake with her name was placed right next to it.
"Birthday throwback. Sending you ALL love and deep gratitude today for all these beautiful birthday wishes," the actress captioned the post. She felt blessed that she could spend another year with her loved ones and fans.
WISHES POUR IN
Erykah Badu, La La Anthony, Taraji P. Henson, and Niecy Nash were among many of Washington's friends who took to the comments section to shower her with love and blessings.
Fans are eager to know how Washington celebrated.
"You are a brilliant, creative, passionate force of nature, and I am constantly inspired by your grace. Not to mention your incredible sense of style…"
The actress' beloved friend Viola Davis did not miss the chance to make her feel special too. Sharing a photo where they look like sisters, Davis wrote:
"You are a powder keg of talent, intelligence, activism, leadership, and HEART!! Thank you for living your life with such undeniable purpose."
KERRY'S SUPER-PRIVATE LIFE
Fans are eager to know how Washington celebrated, but she might not share more photos, given that she is a private person. She is notoriously private when it comes to her personal life.
One might try and scour the internet for photos of her family, but Washington has not left much to discover. She has always been vigilant about protecting her children's privacy.
