Meanwhile, Kerry Washington is expecting her second child. It seems that production of "Scandal" Season 6 had to hide the baby bump while filming. Washington shared in a report that they are indeed hiding her baby bump by wearing big bags or big coats.
The show also had to do the same to Washington when she was pregnant with her first child while filming in October 2013. The production decided to keep it that way instead of writing a pregnancy storyline.
