My Cousin AdeKerry OluWashington is Pregnant and I’m Excited!

I called it months ago. My cousin by marriage to a stranger who just happens to be Nigerian like I am, Kerry Washington, is pregnant with her first child. I am so excited and our family have so much to be thankful for this year. There will be extra jollof rice to celebrate this one. IF YOU ARE SHADING OUR BLOOD RELATION, I REBUKE YOU! Jesus had haters too. (-__-) Your hateration is not welcome in this dancerie.


I knew it, o! It was because my fellow petitenista, AdeKerry, has been looking fuller in the face lately. Also, her BEWBS were SITTING like they were at obedience school. OWWW!!!. She was at the Emmy Awards looking all glowy, and stuff. And she’s been rocking super loose dresses or those with busy mid-sections when she was previously into structured pieces. I KNEW she got the pregnet.

So it was confirmed by US Weekly today.

Kerry Washington Pregnant

Apparently, she’s 4 months pregnant. I love it because real Gs move in silence like gnome and Kerry is the REALEST OF ALL THE Gs!

This baby is going to be THE CUTEST! Can I babysit? I have extensive experience with rugrats in the form of my nieces and nephews. A mini Kerry running around these parts? I LIVE!

Somewhere, Nnamdi’s mama has sang “What shall we do today? TODAY O! I WILL LIFT UP MY VOICE IN PRAISE!” The naming ceremony will be epic. We will have palm oil, sugar and salt to bless that baby, LAWD! I wonder how many names this child is gon have. You know us Nigerians got like 20 each. We can’t stop at just first, middle, last. We all have First, Middle, What Aunty Wants to Call You, What Great-Uncle Saw in His Dream, 5 Other Names, Last Name.

How are they gonna deal with this on Scandal? They’ve shot eight episodes so far and 14 more are left in the season. Surely, Olivia can’t be hiding behind podiums for all of season 3. There’s gonna be a time they’re gonna need to address the big pink elephant in her front in the room.

I wouldn’t mind seeing Liv Pope as a mother. I think they should have her be pregnant by Jake. I DO NOT WANT THAT TO BE FITZ’S BABY!!! I’m sorry but I think Fitz is a terrible person and ultimately, isn’t good for Liv. I’m not here for a “First Side Baby.” NOPE NOPE NOPE. I need that tiny human to be Jake’s.



Are y’all judging me? If so, SHARRAP! Am I the only one excited? Also, do you think Scandal should write this into the plot?

P.S. I wasn’t planning on watching Saturday Night Live (ugh) but now I just might change the channel to NBC to see her baby bump. She’s gonna be so cute all bumpilicious!!!

    The “First Side Baby” made me LOL!

    “First Side Baby!” *DEAD and gone*

  4. October 30, 2013 at 3:09 pm

    I love it. Congratulations to Kerry and hubby. The outdooring will be epic for real. I personally hope they do not write in pregnancy into the storyline, but if they do, at least let it be Jake’s.

  5. October 30, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    I feel like Kerry is a really classy woman. I am so excited because I am taking notes on how to proceed w/ my own marriage and eventually impregnation ( I know…LOL). You don’t have to broadcast your personal life…You can set back in the cut and watch it all unfold at YOUR pace and you can reveal stuff when YOu want to. She isn’t a slave to the paps (*cough Kim K*) and she does as she damn well pleases. Bravo Kerry!

    • October 30, 2013 at 5:51 pm

      I agree. It’s a time and place to tell people. Even in your private life. I swear Kim would of had Nori’s birth streaming live like it was the damn Grammys. I think Kanye put a stop to it.

      But Yayyy Kerry! Children are awesome. But please scandal cannot handle that. I think they may just ignore it.

    LOL 1st Side Baby!

    I think Senator Puddin Pop should make a quick reappearance for a fling to make the baby storyline happen and then they could use her real baby as a stand-in for the role for a time!

    • Londa
      October 30, 2013 at 11:31 pm

      Yep. I was thinking it could be Senator Puddin’ Pop’s bundle of joy, too.

      They could use some sort of flashback scene to explain how it went down if they need to force-fit the timeline of the pregnancy.

      Or, Olivia could be pregnant for the remainder of this season and have the baby at the beginning of next.

    I was SOOOOOOOOOOO waiting on you to blog about this! Soon as I read it this morning I came running to your blog to see you talk about Cousin AdeKerry! I am more excited to get a glimpse of the baby bump!

    I just saw that they aren’t gonna write her pregnancy in… said it would slow the story line and Olivia down. They’re going to adjust the production schedules which means were likely goin be on a winter hiatus again this year! *wall slides*

    • Kiss
      October 30, 2013 at 3:15 pm

      Yup. I think December to mid February…. ugh

    • Ashley
      October 30, 2013 at 3:18 pm

      Though I don’t like the word hiatus, I’m glad they’re not writing it into the show. It would get too messy/sloppy and I don’t want to see Liv be a mistress AND a baby momma!

      I respect Kerry sooooo much. She keeps it classy and keeps her personal life, personal! It’s gonna be beautiful to see her grow during this pregnancy. I bet she’ll be all belly lol. Go Kerry, go!

      Oh, and ya’ll don’t forget to catch her this Saturday on SNL!

    I think many of us figured it out a while back. Congrats to her. BTW I may have some Nigerian floating way up the family tree cause everyone in my family has a minimum of 3 names, one cousin has 6.

    I almost hope they don’t write it into the script. Shonda has done that for some of her Grey’s Anatomy stars. If they do, I’m with you and hope it’s Jake’s and not Fitz’s.

  10. Kiss
    October 30, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    Yeeeeeessssssss!!!!! Another reason for Grand Duchess Mama Pope to show up! Can you IMAGINE Huck tryna protect pregnant Liv? And Oh ma GAWD Mellie is gonna rub that lil bundle of Jalivia swirl all up IN Fitz’s face. Pray it’s worked into the script.

    Id rather shonda hide that baby with potted plants, furniture, awkwardly large teddy bears and colorful blankets, Claire Huxtable style.

    • Mignon
      October 30, 2013 at 3:25 pm

      Claire got hid the BEST on Cosby. It was awkwardly great lol

    Get prepared for the podiums. Big (but GORGEOUS) Designer bags. OP ALWAYS AT HER DESK. Split screen phone calls. Olivia not-quite-fatally-injured-but-just-enough-to-put-her-on-bed-rest Storylines. And more delicious designer coats/capes for Olivia to wear. Shonda is not writing in ANOTHER BABY. Olivia Pope can’t jump up at any moments notice to handle a crisis when she is craving hot chips and Neapolitan ice cream. She can’t wear fabulous shoes if she can’t see her feet. And who’s babysitting KING DADDY GOON. Nope no nuh uh. Shonda won’t do it.

    At least ….I hope not.

    Your excitement is adequate, and Laaaawwwdamercy I’m excited, too!!! She’s just a beautiful person, I’m happy for her family! =D

    Why cant it be Edison’s baby tho? I know I’m probably alone on this but would LOVE to see that plot twist. Porgy Pop needs love too.

    I could tell a couple of weeks ago when she was on The Daily Show. And John Stewart was the consumate gentleman and didn’t say a word. I’m happy for your “family”,Luvvie.

    Happy for kerry washington’s new pregnancy …..but this better not mess up scandal in any shape or form I dont wanna see a knocked up Olivia Pope talmbout I dont know who the daddy is jake or fitz…. #Maury #Whoisthefather

    • Niki
      October 30, 2013 at 6:46 pm

      That’s a good point. You’re right! Liv is not the one to allow that ignent mess to happen to her. In fact, the more I think about it the more I dislike the idea.

      • brandihorse83
        October 30, 2013 at 7:28 pm

        Thanks…..Olivia Pope being pregnant its too simple and such an ordinary boring storyline and I want her in those bad ass tailored suits and pumps not in maternity wear…. she is the first black woman on tv in 40 yrs with a leading role we do not want her to be a baby mama….. That is not the message we want to send.

  19. October 30, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    I was hoping it wouldn’t be in the storyline…but it COULD work…

    Remember in “It’s Handled” when Rowan told Olivia to go away for 8 months. EIGHT. Numbers mean things. Why eight??? Also, Olivia had that concussion and went to the hospital…what if they did a thorough exam on her (shoot, she’s dressed in a man’s dress shirt and she has a head injury…hmmmm…) and found out then and told Rowan?

    No more wine for Olivia Pope, however, unless she’s just drinking cranberry juice in those fabulous glasses.

    October 30, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    I prefer Liv with Jake too but no babies until she is married. I’m sorry. I’m old fashioned that way. With a baby, Liv wouldn’t be the same type of fixer.

    That being said, I am very happy for “your cousin by marriage to a stranger who just happens to be Nigerian like you are.” And I love that she keeps her business, her business until she is ready to share. I respect that.

    Mother Washington is pregnet and we can all rejoice in this joyous celebration! Y’all know Kerry is just the big sister we haven’t quite met yet.

    My heart wouldn’t be able to take an Olitz baby. I love them as a tortured couple, not so much as a family unit. I am #TeamTeddy and he is the one and only First Baby I will acknowledge.

    But what should happen though is when Olivia’s baby is born, they go find little Elian Huck, let Lemony and Abby have a little sumin-sumin and they start Jr. Pope & Asso. Yes, let’s make this a thing….

    I’m so happy for her 🙂 That baby is going to have great parents bringing up him/her.

    I don’t believe anything coming out of these people from the show saying the pregnancy not being worked into Scandal. They like to throw us off. I’ll just keep watching the show and see what happens. I would rather that baby be Fitz’s than Jake though. Jake is a rebound. I just can’t take that boring relationship seriously.

    Please NO Scandal baby! That’s just to typical “Who’s baby is it”
    Pudding pops, Jakes, Fitz. Don’t forget Daddy Goon would like the person off anyway. Scandal has to much going on for a baby story

    • Kathryn
      October 31, 2013 at 12:55 pm

      Kill the person anyway.

    This baby is going to have the best walk and lips known to man.. be it boy or girl.. Congrats Kerry and Nnamdi… As for Scandal, NO MA’AM! I’m not here for a Liv Pope baby story line. However, life does happen… and if she WAS pregnant by Jake or Fitz it wouldn’t be unrealistic per se.. I agree with you Luvvie, that if it HAS to be a baby, please let it belong to Jake.. b/c like u said, Fitz is no good for her. and if the baby is Jake’s maybe that will give Liv leverage when/if Eli decides to off Jake.. but eh.. nawl.. just film Liv from the neck up and put her in some stunning fashions, make it to off season so Kerry may gestate in peace and have that beautiful baby! Liv though.. she deserves it all. And if that means, hubby, or her own man and baby.. then that shd be presented for her in her storyline.

    I don’t think they should write it in. But in the last episode she had on a white jacket and you could really tell she was with child.

    They need to do better with her wardrobe.

    As far as a baby by Jake HELL THE FUQ NAW…ain’t nobody want a baby smelling like need and desperation…no ma’am.

    Jake is so thirsty and a non factor. I know Shonda keeps trying to make fetch happen but she need to let Jake go…not sexy, not hot…he’s just…not! He’s a good actor, but him and Liv are a DUD!

  31. Erin
    November 20, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    I for one do NOT want to see a baby written into the script! Just hide her under big pillows and board room tables and behind Huck for a while. Olivia is too smart to just get knocked up by Jake! Trust me while she drinking all that wine she poppin’ a BC right on time. Everyday same time!
