Kerry Washington is Not Down with the ‘Pump and Dump’ Practice

Scandal star Kerry Washington isn’t into the whole “pump and dump” thing, the practice of pumping out contaminated breast milk after a breastfeeing mom indulges in alcoholic, spicy, gassy or other food and drink that could filter to baby.

Instead, she has just been staying away from it all.

“I haven’t been drinking a lot of wine because I’ve been with child and nursing,” Washington told attendees at the Scandal cast’s panel during the Disney-ABC portion of the 2017 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour at Langham Hotel on January 10 in Pasadena, California. “I’m not really into the pump and dump.”

During the Golden Globe Awards this past Sunday, the Confirmation star shared that her 2-year old daughter Isabelle Amarachi has been a very good big sister to her brand new 3-month old baby brother Caleb Kelechi.

“She’s enjoying it,” the Emmy and Golden Globe nominee told ExtraTV.

“It’s good. I’m an only child, but my husband [former NFL cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha] has many siblings, so he can walk her through it,” she added.

Weeks After Giving Birth, ‘Veep’s Anna Chlumsky hit Emmy Red Carpet

Veep star and Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Anna Chlumsky gave birth to her daughter just weeks before she hit Sunday’s Emmy Awards red carpet.

The My Girl  alum was nominated for the 4th time for a Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Emmy for her role as Amy Bookheimer and instilled the help of designer Chrisitan Sirano to create a bold look for the award show which took place at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday, September 18.

Her second daughter Clara Elizabeth So was born on Thursday, July 28.

Though she lost the award to SNL‘s Kate McKinnon, she stood out in a crinkly metallic off-the-shoulder gold asymmetric gown with an extended train that she helped design.

“This was a collaboration,” Siriano told PeopleStyle of the gown, one of nine looks he designed for the Emmys. “She really wanted something very vintage. She has a lot of vintage references, like old-school ’40s, ’50s dresses. And she wanted this very weird shape because she just had a baby. So she really, I think, didn’t want to show too much of her body, but still wanted to look cool.”

He told the site that he and Chlumsky expected the dress to generate some criticism.

“I think definitely it was a risk,” he says. “The fabric was a risk. The shape was a risk. But it was cool. People get very scared of what they haven’t seen before. Like, ‘Oh, I hate it,’ or ‘Oh, it’s not working,’ because it’s just new to them. But I think that’s okay. We all knew it was going to be something fun and different and not everybody would get it and that’s okay.”

Chlumsky and husband Shaun So also have a 3-year-old daughter, Penelope Joan.

Amanda Peet and ‘Game of Thrones’ director hubby welcome son, Henry

We’ve got a new Games of Thrones baby! 
Well not really. The director of the cult fave HBO show, David Benioff and his wife, actress Amanda Peet, welcomed their third child, a boy finally,  this past Sunday, December 7.
The couple, who are parents to daughters, 7-year old Frances and 4-year old Molly, welcomed the new addition who they named  Henry Peet Friedman.
Sweet!
Peet showed up quite preggers just this past August on the Emmy Awards red carpet, having not previously announced that she was expecting as many celebs do at the start of their second trimester.
