At the Golden Globes in January, Kerry spoke to Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson about embracing her impending motherhood.

“I’m very blessed. I’m truly, truly blessed. Everything’s so extraordinary,” the 37-year-old star said at the time, when asked about her pregnancy. “I have loved every moment of this and I’m just really blessed, honestly.”
