Kerry Washington is unveiling what her world looks like now at age 40.

For Glamour magazine’s May issue, the Scandal star opens up about life as a mother of two and being a powerful force in Hollywood, all while getting over the 30’s hump.

Compared to her 20s and 30s, Washington reveals to the publication that, “Life is just getting better. For me, 40 feels like a beginning. I’m in the middle of so much new—with this career, the kids, and I’m still sort of a newlywed. I’m excited to be at this stage in life.”

Speaking of kids, Kerry usually doesn’t open up about her personal life, but she does explain in the new issue of the fashion magazine that she wakes up with intent of gratitude and efforts to pace herself. “I’m like, ‘I need a nap.’ Because of my baby or a 5:30 a.m. call time, the day starts really early,” she said, referring to her 7-month-old, Caleb.

“We have to pace ourselves. That’s a big theme for me these days,” she explains. “I have to pace myself for this political moment. Pace myself for my relationship with my family. Pace myself in my career to get through the rest of the season with a new child and a toddler. It is about slowing down, but it’s also about being present. Not rushing ahead or being stuck in yesterday.”

Washington, who is also the mother to 3-year-old Isabelle, also dishes on the secrets to maintaining such a youthful look.

When asked what rituals her mother or grandmother passed down, the actress responds admits it’s all about water. “We’re an island people; my grandparents emigrated through Ellis Island from Jamaica. My parents’ first date ended at the beach. We’ve all been lifeguards in my family,” she says, “So there’s a lot of water culture. I did water aerobics the whole time I was pregnant with my son. I drink tons of water—particularly now, as a nursing mom. With my skin, even, I use products all about hydration. It’s all about water!”

Water just also might be the secret behind some of the other Black beauties in Hollywood who all continue to defy age. HipHollywood recently counted down seven female celebs over 50 who haven’t cracked.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
