Olivia Pope will not be expecting a baby any time soon, even though the actress who plays her is gearing up to be a new mom! Kerry’s growing baby bump reportedly won’t be having a starring role on ‘Scandal.’
Kerry Washington‘s personal baby news will reportedly remain separate from her dramatic role as Olivia Pope on ABC’s Scandal — Kerry’s pregnancy is not set to be written in as a new plot development on the show! So, what is the show’s plan for when her bump is undeniable? Find out, here!
Kerry Washington Pregnancy On ‘Scandal’: Olivia Pope Pregnancy Not Part Of Show
Kerry, 36, will be welcoming her first child with her husband Nnamdi Asomugha, but she reportedly won’t be featuring her baby bump on her hit show. “Scandal‘s not planning to work Kerry Washington’s pregnancy into the show,” reported Life & Style magazine.
There are many ways a television show can adjust to an actress’ pregnancy besides writing in a surprising plot twist: the baby bump could be cleverly hidden, the writing team could explain the weight gain in another way, or the show could take an extended hiatus.
In this case, “it’ll be hidden!” according to Life & Style.
HollywoodLife.com reached out to reps for Scandal, who are not commenting on the show’s direction at this time.
Kerry Washington Hides Growing Baby Bump
Olivia won’t be the only one concealing a growing belly — even though Kerry has gone more public with her pregnancy than she had in her earlier months, she continues to shield her frame beneath loose-fitting draped silhouettes — including on her Nov. 2 appearance on Saturday Night Live.
The one thing she can’t mask is her gorgeous glow — she is looking more radiant than ever!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Did you hope that Kerry’s pregnancy would be worked into the Scandal plot line?
