Kerry Washington let her baby bump do the talking at the Met Gala.
Hours after reports surfaced that thee “Scandal” star is pregnant with her second child, Washington appeared in a photo holding her baby bump at the annual event.
The actress hasn’t made a verbal statement about her pregnancy, but questions surrounding how the news will affect the upcoming season of “Scandal” have already surfaced.
According to TVLine, the ABC is considering pushing the season’s premiere back to midseason. If this happens, fans would have to wait until 2017 to see more of Olivia Pope.
A spokesperson for ABC declined to comment on if the news will affect the premiere date for season 6 of “Scandal,” but the network is scheduled to release its fall schedule on May 17.
The theme for this year’s Met Gala is “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.” The annual fundraising event benefits the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York.
