Another baby Gladiator is on the way! Katie Lowes is officially pregnant with her & her husband’s 1st child, but while she already knows they’re having a boy, she admitted they have zero names picked out yet — better get on that! You’ll love how Shonda Rhimes INSTANTLY knew she was expecting!
Katie Lowes, 35, is the second Scandal star to get pregnant in the past year! Yet another Gladiator mom in the making, the actress could not be happier about welcoming her baby son into the world later this year! This will be Katie and her husband Adam Shapiro‘s first little one, and we could not be more thrilled for the sweet couple! Katie announced the big news on May 11 during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and she ALSO revealed she and Adam were having a boy. “It’s a boy!” the expectant mom gushed to host Jimmy Kimmel. “We have zero names.”
Katie jokingly did add however that Adam would like to name their son after NBA champ Lebron James. LOL. Even before Katie was showing though, there was no hiding her pregnancy at work! After all, Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes, 47, has a knack for sniffing out buns in the oven! “I told her five minutes from being pregnant,” Katie admitted. “She already knew—she’s a genius.” Apparently the TV mogul could tell simply by observing Katie during edit sessions. “She knows the minute I got pregnant,” the actress said. “Either it was a ‘really good weekend eating pizza and beer or I was pregnant.'”
Let’s not forget that when Kerry Washington, 40, was pregnant with her second child, son Caleb Kelechi Asomugha, 7 months, Shonda — AND Jimmy actually — were some of the first people to know. Talking to Kerry on his show, Jimmy asked the star who she told her pregnancy news to first, “Your parents or Shonda?” the late-night host quizzed. “My parents don’t want me to answer that,” Kerry responded while shaking her head and smiling. “I will not answer that.” We think we know what THAT means! Congrats again, Katie and Adam!
