“Scandal” actress Kerry Washington sat down with “In Touch Weekly” and opened up about her working life now that she is a mother. The star of the hit show welcomed a daughter named Isabelle Amarachi Asomugh in May 2014, but says that she still has yet to slow down.
In an interview with In Touch magazine, Washington explained that having a boss like Shonda Rhimes makes it easier to balance work and new motherhood.
“One of the greatest things about having her as a boss is that she is a woman who really understands,” Washington said. “She’s a mother and has four shows, along with three kids.”
But part of being a mom means making sure to say “no” to certain people. “You can’t be all things to all people all the time,” said Washington.
It sounds like she’s working hard and has everything together, so kudos to her for that.
And on those rare breaks when Kerry does have downtime, she chooses to relax on vacation. “I think my honeymoon was the best one — it was amazing,” she tells In Touch. “I always say my favorite weeks in my life so far are my honeymoon and doing Saturday Night Live — not counting every second with my kid!”
