Kerry Washington is Pregnant as Olivia Pope Sleeps with Three Men: Whose Baby Will it Be?

It’s been reported that Kerry Washington, star of the hit TV show, “Scandal,” is going to have a baby.  The good news arrives as her show has seen the highest highs of viewership and loyalty.  But there is a deeper question of how Shonda Rhimes and the other writers for the show are going to put this into the script.

Nomalanga Mhlauli-Moses, who writes for HealthyBlackWoman.com, is wondering how the writers are going to reconcile Washington’s pregnancy with the activities of Olivia Pope.  She is most concerned with the fact that Pope is sleeping with three men.  Of course we know that pregnancy can certainly occur under those circumstances, but it would be interesting to see how the writers lay this one out.  Here is what she said on her Facebook page: 

So Kerry Washington is pregnant. I wonder if Shonda Rhimes will write into theScandal story line. And if so, since she sleeps with at least 3 different men, I wonder who’s baby it will be…hmmmm #JustThinkingOutLoud

What do you think?  Whose baby will it be?

The popularity of Washington’s character on the show has led to quite a few questions about s*xuality, gender and ethics.   There are some who refuse to watch the show because they find Olivia Pope to be a poor role model.  But there are others who might find her character intriguing and liberating.   Which one is she?  If your daughter were pregnant while sleeping with three men, how would this make you feel?

    Just to clarify, and to reiterate Anita’s point above, the character Olivia Pope is not sleeping with 3 men at the same time.

    Scandal has so far portrayed 3 “relationships” (however that is defined) Olivia has had: (1) Edison (the Senator), with whom she lived for several years and to whom she was engaged, but later broke off the relationship – although he did come back into her life for a short time recently; 2) Fitz, with whom she’s having an on and off affair, and (3) Jake, with whom she did have s*x, and a relationship perhaps was blossoming (and still could depending on how this season goes), but it hasn’t come to fruition.

    At no time was she having s*x with more than one person at a time.

    I know it’s a TV show and it ain’t that deep, but we could at least make sure we get the facts straight, since they are so readily available.

    Having said all of that, it will be interesting to see if Shonda decides to write in the pregnancy. I don’t think she will, but we’ll have to wait and see. It would certainly add more drama onto more drama.

      I agree with this post.

    Personally, I hope that Shonda decides to “hide” Kerry Washington’s real-life pregnancy and not introduce a “surprise” pregnancy for the “Olivia Pope” character. I would like to think that Olivia, being the type of woman she is portrayed to be on “Scandal” would also be the type of woman who is smart enough and responsible enough to be using proper preventative measures that would prevent any unplanned pregnancy…regardless of the number of men she is currently sleeping with. How *many* men she sleeps with is her personally choice (BTW, she only sleeps with one man at a time based on my observation of the show)but “Olivia Pope” would never be the type of woman to disregard use of birth control no matter how hot things got between she and the men she elects to sleep with. That said, please so surprise pregnancy for the show…that would be *too* cliqued.

    Correction: that last word should be cliched.

    NOOOOOOOOO. Please no surprise baby. A single black woman, doing relatively well. Why does she have to be a BLACK UN-WED MOTHER???? Yes, I know it’s a TV show, but please.

    They do NOT have to. They can shoot it like they do other people and not show her midsection.

    I agree with those who think her pregnancy should NOT be written into the show. There’s already enough ‘drama’ to satisfy any ‘drama junkie’ and including a baby would really make the show seem more ‘gimicky’ than it already is! And like one poster pointed out, how does a smart, intelligent, aware woman like Olivia Pope not protect herself during her liaisons? Let Ms. Washington have her personal/private time with her new baby and family!

    please we don’t want to see a baby.

    I baby doesn’t fit anywhere into this show. This whole article is silly and without merit.

    I had admired Kerry Washington for some of the statements she has made in
    the past regarding dignity in blacks. Apparently, I was mistaken. I guess money trumps dignity and image. Now, she plays a black woman who sleeps with a married white man, and several other men, dignity, indeed! Now, we have the Scandal’s viewers worried about her real-life pregnancy being worked into the script as another unwed black woman. Indeed!
