Kerry Washington Tweeted While in Labor for a Very Specific Reason!

Kerry Washington takes the cover of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit magazine looking stunning!

Here’s what the 38-year-old Scandal star had to share with the mag:

On tweeting while in labor: “Every Thursday within three weeks of my (daughter Isabelle’s) due date, I loaded up pre-tweets based on the episodes and what I would want to say. I tweeted in the very early stages of my labor. I figured that if I went completely silent on social media, then people would know I was in the hospital!”

On what she’d be if she wasn’t an actress: “I would be involved in politics, but I would probably be teaching. It’s what my mother did, so it’s in my blood. My mother is so badass. I watched her get her doctorate when I was a little girl: she got that around the same time that I graduated from kindergarten so we both had caps and gowns. I grew up with a belief in the importance of a woman’s mind and that has been a real gift for me.”

On if she feels pressure to be politically active: “I have a sense of responsibility that was ingrained in me as a kid, but I’m not perfect; I haven’t voted in every election. But I’m trying to be better about it because so many people put their lives on the line for me to have this right.”
