Kerry Washington didn’t appreciate all the ridiculous things she had to do to hide her pregnant belly while taping Scandal when she was pregnant with her daughter Isabelle Asomugha in 2013. This time, pregnant with her second child with her ex-NFLer husband Nnamdi Asomugha, she has told producers she won’t be returning until after she has delivered her baby.
I don’t blame her. The tricks and shenanigans executed by the production crew was the subject of a few humorous pieces by TVGuide.com, PEOPLE, E!Online, US Weekly and several other sites that jumped on the bandwagon.
Last time, her pregnancy shortened the season by 4 episodes. This times, it looks like it will shorten it by 12.

Congrats to Kerry Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha on expecting their second child, according to E! and Us Weekly.
This weekend, when I posted the red carpet from the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, I added a couple of lines referencing the fact that her face looked full and she looked pregnant especially wearing that A-Line dress.
I guess I wasn’t the only one brimming with suspicions. This will be her second child with her ex-NFL player husband. They welcomed a daughter, Isabelle,
Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha on April 21, 2014.
Now that the secret is out, she can cusp her pregnant belly on the red carpet of tonight’s Met Gala. She is wearing Marc Jacobs.
Current Bellyitch Bumpwatch mama Kristen Bell and recent alum Kerry Washington met up this week at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association‘s Grants Banquet, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California.
Washington was in a strapless paisley patterned silk Mary Katrantzou resort 2015 dress and blue pumps.
Bell, who is expecting her second child with her actor husband Dax Shepard, looked radiant in a bump-hugging midnight blue Andre GN sequinned dress with Rupert Sanderson heels and Antonini jewels. The Veronica Mars actress is mom to 15-month old Lincoln.
Washington looked to be down to her pre-baby size already after giving birth to her first child, a daughter, with hubby NFL‘s Nnamdi Asomugha in April.
Of the encounter, Bell tweeted compliments to Kerry:
Bell told US Weekly that for this pregnancy, she has learned to reign in the cravings by avoiding refined sugars.
“I mean, I still crave food in general but I’m not like waking up with a starve, going, ‘I need dark chocolate!'”
She also shared that this pregnancy is precisely like her previous one only this round, she is chasing a toddler at the same time.
Kerry Washington is probably term and set to deliver her baby any day now, according to speculators.
The third season of her hit show Scandal just wrapped and was shortened from 22 to 18 weeks to accommodate the star. It makes sense then that her due date, not previously announced, is upon us.
And then she missed the season wrap party.
“Super sad to have missed the #ScandalWrapParty
a night out with my #Scandal fam but very grateful to be getting some much needed rest! Xo,” Washington tweeted
on Twitter this Sunday, March 31.

As the sleuths at the website CocoaFab.com reported
, Washington also missed an event where her husband Nnamdi Asomugha
got honored for his philanthropic efforts by rapper Common
‘s organization, The Common Ground Foundation
‘s Gala of Gratitude
at the Millenium Park
hotel in Chicago, Illinois.
(Side note: It could have been an awkward moment too considering Washington and Common were once romantically linked. Anyone ever notice that Common’s video for “I want you”
featured three women he reportedly and really dated in the past: Washington, Serena Williams, and Alicia Keya.)
Anyway we can’t wait to hear news about the birth of new baby Asomugha.
