Kerry Washington Is Pregnant, and Jimmy Kimmel, Scandal Stan, Needs to Know If Olivia Will Be, Too

What to expect when Kerry Washington is expecting: Scenes on Scandal where Olivia Pope hides behind inanimate objects, like chairs, window screens, telephone booths, and the occasional lamp. See, Olivia Pope can’t be held back by a baby bump, not with her active lifestyle, not with a presidential election around the bend. Unless, as Jimmy Kimmel suggests to Shonda Rhimes, the big twist next season will be that Olivia Pope is pregnant! Cue gasps! Cue that shutter sound effect! Cue Shonda’s firewall of a smile that reveals no information at all!
