How Kerry Washington Hides Her Baby Bump on "Scandal"

Posted on: September 9th, 2016 by ABC News No Comments

ABC/Byron CohenKerry Washington had her baby bump on full display on Thursday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.  But you would never know she’s pregnant on her hit ABC show Scandal.

Washington, who is currently shooting the show’s next season, explained how she and the rest of the Scandal crew are managing to hide the fact that she is expecting her second child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha. The two are currently parents to 2-year-old daughter Isabelle Amarachi.

“Big coats, big bags…hiding behind different body parts of other actors,” the 39-year-old actress told DeGeneres.

When the audience laughed, she clarified that she meant “bigger body parts.”

“Like if I’m in the back of the room, it can be, like, somebody’s leg, and I’m positioned behind it,” Washington expounded.

“Lamps are good,” she added. “Vases.”

Her bump isn’t the only thing Washington is hiding. When DeGeneres asked her what the sex of the baby is, the usually private Washington replied, “We’re hoping for a human.”

DeGeneres suggested to Washington that she name the baby “Ellen.”

“That is at the top of the list,” Washington joked.

DeGeneres also threw out “Portia,” referring to Portia de Rossi, DeGeneres’ wife and Washington’s co-star on Scandal.

“Duh,” Washington said.
