Well 2013 seems to be Kerry Washington’s year. After all of the speculation, it was confirmed by Us Weekly that Kerry, star of the hit ABC TV Show “Scandal”, is pregnant with her first child.

Of course the internet is a buzz on this news. Questions like “Will the pregnancy be written in the storyline?” “Will the show be the same if Olivia Pope is pregnant?”

Well, I was reminded that this is nothing new. In fact, if we want to go Old School, Phylicia Rashad already did that when she was Clair Huxtable on America’s beloved TV Show “The Cosby Show”. Phylicia announced her pregnancy during Season 3 of “The Cosby Show”. Guess what? Kerry’s pregnancy was announced during Season 3 of “Scandal”. And Phylicia’s pregnancy was hidden on the show. Will Kerry’s? We will find out as the season unfolds.

Do you think the pregnancy should be written into the show or just keep it under wraps like Mrs. Huxtable? Leave a comment.

I'm glad that they aren't writing it in the storyline. It's going to be great for Kerry to be able to celebrate her pregnancy rather than "work" it.

I have been a wife too long. I see nothing good about the mistress being pregnant. In the real world though I am happy for her and her husband because a couple's first child is such a special moment.

If they were smart they would milk it. Who's the father? Is it Fitz or Jake ... cliffhanger what! That would be SCANDALOUS!!!

I heard it on the radio this morning that Kerry and her husband are expecting and ....will they write it into the show. It really would be stupid not to but then I'm sure they'd have to ok that with Kerry.

I am playing catch up on netflixs. I don't know if I can handle one more layer to this story!! I would say yes.... Write it in. I want to see what fashions she would wear!

Pregnancy would be too big of a distraction I think. After all, we do not understand her mixed feelings re: Jake or the President. I am cool with her seeing both AHs. She is a free woman (IMO) But can you imagine the scuttlebutt. With a new life, we'd get no more torture and black drama.

Yes, it is not a good look. I hope they don't write it in. But if they choose to do so, let it be Jake's baby. LOL

Wouldn't that be a big cliffhanger. I thought only those type of storylines occured on daytime TV. :)

From E! Online, they are saying it will not be written into the storyline. Whew! I don't think I could take it.. I agree. Buuuuut if it were to be written into the storyline, Jake could be the father.. :) Thanks for stopping by.
