Kerry Washington and husband Nnamdi Asomugha left their two babies at home for a well-deserved date night on Thursday.

The couple, who rarely make public appearances together, showed up to the Ambassadors for Humanity Gala Benefiting USC Shoah Foundation in Hollywood, California. This marks the Scandal star's first public appearance since giving birth to son Caleb Kelechi Asomugha in October. The two mingled with renowned filmmakers Steven Spielberg and honoree George Lucas at the event.

Washington turned heads in her sexy low-cut floral mini-dress that she paired with a black choker and strappy heels. Her husband also looked dapper in a sleek blue suit.

Prior to giving birth, the 39-year-old actress admitted to ET at this year's Emmy Awards that she was nervous about having two children in the house. "I'm an only [child] so every time the family grows it uh... it brings up a little bit of anxiety," she explained. "But it's fantastic. I'm really happy."
