“She spends a lot of time singing to it and talking to it to say we’re just playing pretend and everything’s going to be okay, so don’t worry about it,” Joe Morton, who plays Washington’s father on the hit ABC series, told PEOPLE at the 2014 BET Honors (which airs Feb. 24 at 9 p.m. EST on BET) in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.
“She’s very excited about being a mom,”he added. “She’s sort of floating around having just been married and now having a baby and putting a family together. She’s in pig heaven, as they say."
Morton, 66, says that Washington’s nurturing personality will make her a great mom. "She’s a very smart woman, very kind, very affectionate and she wants this baby – which is the key to it all,”he says.

Kerry Washington’s character is a former media consultant to President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn), who is ready to move on with her life but keeps haunted by her past.
According to Design & Trend, ABC released a new teaser for "Scandal"season 5 episode 10 and it showed Olivia talking to Abby played by Darby Stanchfield.
"I would tell you or anyone else, ‘Just suck it up and get over it.’ I’d say, 'Quit being a baby. Stop thinking about yourself. Pick up the phone and do what’s best for your client,’” Olivia told Abby.
“Excellent Olivia Pope advice,” Abby replied.
“Then why don’t I seem to be able to take it?” Olivia said.
Aside from Olivia Pope’s encounter with Abby, viewers can expect to see in the live stream of “Scandal” season 5 episode 10 some awkward encounters with President Fitz, who is still not aware that Kerry Washington’s character had an abortion.
According to Variety, the episode that revealed Olivia’s abortion gained controversy and ABC was aware of the consequence that’s why they added “viewer discretion” disclaimer before they aired the show. They also informed the advertisers who retained their contract and the rating of the show was the same.
“As always, there’s discussion: Are you going to alienate viewers?” an ABC source said.
“It might be distasteful, but it isn’t so outrageous in the life of this character,” another source explained. “It was all sensitively done. These are incredibly flawed, complex characters. This is who these people are.”
While Olivia Pope keeps her abortion a secret, she will make things more complicated by hooking up with Jake Ballard played by Scott Foley in “Scandal"season 5 episode 10 and fans can watch it via live stream on Hulu, ABC andSidereel.
Kerry’s privacy is handled! Kerry Washington’s Scandal costar Bellamy Young revealed to Us Weekly at The Wrap’s First Annual Emmy Party on June 5 in Los Angeles she’s not allowed to comment on Kerry Washington or her recently born baby girl.
Kerry Washington herself has NEVER EVER said when she was due. Hell, SHE finally said something about her baby at the Golden Globes on air. SHE FINALLY SAID SOMETHING ABOUT HER BABY AT THE GOLDEN GLOBES as mentioning that the cute belly was her ONLY date too. All those earlier reports since SNL were leaked and none of them were actual interviews from her. So, those “sources” said that she was about 5-6 months pregnant now, due in Spring and would NEVER talk about the pregnancy. Well, damn, they sure were wrong about the last part so maybe from looking at her, they were also wrong about when she was due.
