InStyle‘s September cover girl, Kerry Washington, is telling all.

As the Scandal star prepares to be a mother to baby number two, the actress is dishing about stepping into motherhood again and getting parenting advice from Scandal creator, Shonda Rhimes.

“I consider myself busy,” the 39-year-old said, “But Shonda has about four or five shows, three kids … She says, ‘If you feel like you have just the right amount of help, then you don’t have enough.’ My therapist said this too. You need a lot of support. Not just logistically but emotionally and spiritually.”

Washington, who was just nominated for an Emmy for her role on HBO’s Confirmation, also opened up about stepping out of the limelight following a flurry of success.

You might recall, the Internet when crazy after the actress announced back in May that she’d be taking a hiatus from Twitter and Instagram because she was “feeling called to be a bit more quiet and still.”

Washington told InStyle, “You arrive at a certain place of achieving and suddenly you feel like your goals are being dictated by other people,” she said. “Right now, as I get ready for this second baby, it’s really about me being in touch with what I want. I didn’t get here because I was trying to be what somebody else wanted me to be … So for now, I’m leaving myself open to the adventure.”

Washington’s issue hits newsstands August 12.
