Kerry Washington is pregnant with her second child and apparently, when it came down to whom to tell first, it was a toss up: Her parents or Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes?
Washington and Rhimes stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night and candidly discussed Kerry’s pregnancy. “Who do you call first, your parents or Shonda, when you find out that you’re pregnant?” Kimmel asked the actress.
“My parents don’t want me to answer that,” the 39-year-old, who is expecting her second child with husband, Nnamdi Asomugha said.
As for Rhimes reaction to Kerry’s big news, she admitted, “I get really, really excited. I like babies a lot.”
As for what they plan to do for Washington’s storyline on the hit ABC show, Shonda explained there is “absolutely” a plan. But in true Shonda fashion, she left it at that. “I’m not going to tell you,” the show runner said. “I’m saying nothing.”
During Kerry’s first pregnancy with her now 2-year-old daughter, Isabelle, the show hid Kerry’s baby bump behind trees, bags and coats.
Sound off: Do you think they will write her pregnancy into the storyline?
