Scandal

Happy Birthday, Kerry Washington!

Happy Birthday, Bellyitch Bumpwatch Babe and Mom-to-be, 
Kerry Washington

The Emmy-nominated star of Scandal turns 37 today.
Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha of the National Football League are expecting their first child together since marrying last summer.
The Golden Globe nominee has a fan in the First Lady of the United States too.
In an interview that aired yesterday with Ryan Secrest, Mrs. Michelle Obama said she enjoys Washington in the hit ABC drama about fictional crisis manager Olivia Pope who solves national and international crisis while balancing internal turmoil about having an affair with the fictional president.
Oooh! Too close for comfort? Not for Mrs. O who caught up on the series during a very long flight to her vacation home in Hawaii over the Christmas break.
“I watched all the seasons, I caught up on ‘Scandal,’ I had never watched it,” the first lady said. “I love Kerry Washington, she is amazing, so it makes the show fun.”

Kerry Washington’s Scandal castmates helped her conceal her pregnancy, 5 Ways to Hide your Pregnancy

During promotion for the next season of Scandal, Kerry Washington’s cast mate Joe Morton explained that when the cast learned she was pregnant with new husband Nnamdi Asomugha‘s first baby, they all worked to make sure her secret stayed safe and not leaked to the public until Washington was ready to reveal. 
“We sort of new, but she obviously wanted to keep it private, so we helped her do that,”  Morton told  HipHollywood at Essence Women in Music event. “So there was no kind of big celebration. ” 
For women who work in offices, concealing a pregnancy may take some work too.  For professional and personal reasons, women don’t want the beans spilled too soon. Here are some tips on how to keep your pregnancy a secret until you are ready to reveal the news.
5 Ways to Hide a pregnancy

1. Hiding morning sickness. You  may have one challenge to not be caught by a co-worker throwing up in the bathroom. If you work in a multi-level office environment, use the bathroom on another floor. Chances are the people from those other floors won’t know who you are or won’t recognize the shoes to the woman losing her lunch in the stall next door.
2. Shielding alcohol avoidance. You may be known to NOT skip a drink offer. So if it would be uncharacteristic of you to say no to booze,  take the glass when offered and pretend to sip it. Then replace the liquid with alcohol-free version when no one is looking. If it’s white wine, replace it with apple juice if convenient. If it’s pure vodka, water works. If it’s rum and coke, get just the coke.
3. Covering up the Early Pregnancy Look. There is a certain look that women who are suffering from morning sickness get: glazed eye, red nose, puffy cheeks are indications of vomiting and dealing with nausea. It’ll be hard, but just try. Also, don’t look too dumpy because that is a dead give-away that something is up. Keep your hair coiffed and keep wearing make up even if you’re feeling queezie and not up to it. If you have to heave, reapply your make up so you don’t look so green coming out of the restroom.
4. Disguising the hand on the tummy posture. You may feel the uncanny urge to rest your hand on your tummy. It’s an unexplainable phenomenon. Try to be conscious where your hands are and make an effort to keep them at your hips or another natural place OTHER than resting on your tummy…LIKE A PREGNANT WOMAN! A couple of years ago, when Mariah Carey was pregnant and before suffering her miscarriage, many outlets, including this blog, reported that she MUST have been pregnant based on that photograph alone! (see right)
5. Dressing to Hide a growing bump. Finally, dress in chunky but hip sweaters or A-line or empire waist tops or dresses to take the focus away from your tummy. Keep it fresh and trendy so it appears that you are wearing those tummy hiding outfits for style, not for the convenience of hiding a pregnancy you don’t want someone to know about.

Kerry Washington confirms pregnancy at Golden Globes red carpet

EDITED:  After refusing to confirm her pregnancy for months, Scandal actress Kerry Washington hit the red carpet to tonight’s 71st annual Golden Globes cupping her growing bump, wearing a light mint green Balenciaga gown with matching clutch, Casadei shoes, and Fred Leighton jewels.

The soft pink lips were well set off with subtle nut brown lids.

“I have the best date of the night — my little accessory,” Washington said of her bump in a brief interview with Ryan Seacrest during E!’s red carpet pre-show.

The mom-to-be is up for a Globe for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series-Drama at the event held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel  in Beverly Hills, California
Washington and new husband of under a year NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha are expecting their first child after marrying last June 2013 in Idaho.

Rumors began in September that the couple were expecting starting on last year’s Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet when interviewers took note that she refused to answer questions and appeared a bit green. 
Tonight’s belly caressing pose confirms it! She should be between 6 to 7 months along based on reports.
Congrats!
