Kerry Washington Expecting! How Scandal Characters Would React if Olivia Pope Was Pregnant

Scandal Cast Craig Sjodin/ABC

Could OPA handle a baby?!

A source confirms to E! News that Scandal star Kerry Washington is expecting her first child with her husband of four months San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. And though a source tells us it's "unlikely" that Shonda Rhimes will choose to make Olivia pregnant (and gift our eyes with all with the fixer's sure-to-be amazing maternity wear), we couldn't help but wonder how her Gladiators and frenemies would react to the news of her pregnancy.

Would Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) boast, brag or break down? Would Mellie (Bellamy Young) get drunk or raise hell? Would David Rosen (Josh Malina) even care? Don't worry, we found the answers to all those questions and more...
