As Kerry Washington anticipates the arrival of her second child, the Scandal star is already thinking about baby names, and if Ellen DeGeneres has anything to do with it, the child would be named Ellen.
Washington stopped by the The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday and revealed that although she is far along in her pregnancy, she does not know the sex of the baby. Naturally, the follow-up conversation would be about baby names, and that’s when Ellen took a wild guess that, if a girl, the child’s name would be Ellen.
“That is at the top of the list,” Washington quipped.
DeGeneres then fired off her wife’s name “Portia (de Rossi)” and Kerry jokingly responded, “Duh.”
During the 39-year-old’s visit with the talk show host, she also opened up about hiding her baby bump while shooting Season 6 of Scandal. “Big coats, big bags, hiding behind different body parts of other actors,” she said. “Lamps are good. Vases.”
Scandal will return in January 2017.
