Kerry was pregnant with her first child during “Scandal” season 3, and since the storyline did not involve Olivia Pope having a kid yet, the creators used every trick in the book to hide her baby bump on screen. From lamps to bags to even a naked Jake, everything came to play to camouflage Kerry’s growing belly.
Will the Olivia Pope be pregnant along with Kerry, this time around, or will the audience get to see a repeat of the same deception tactics from the creators?
“As far as I know, we’re going to be hiding things,” Kerry told E! News. “But stay tuned!”

However, it might not come to that for the showrunners, due to their decision to delay the release date till midseason of 2017. Channing Dungey, the network’s chief, said in a press release: “We did have to make some adjustments to Scandal for a variety of reasons that had to do with the production schedule.”
The “Scandal” star is currently basking in the glow of her pregnancy. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kerry Washington said, “We’re all really excited. We’ll see how it all plays out. I’m an only child, so I’m like, ‘What’s this going to be like?’ but I think it’s going to be great.”
However, she is also ready to get back into the world of politics and find out what’s in store for her character in the future.
“I’ll be going back to work in July,” she said. “I’ll be waddling my way around OPA [Olivia Pope & Associates]. Don’t worry.”
