These days, it looks like a lot of mothers love to update their friends and family on social media when they're even in the labor and delivery room and apparently Kerry Washington is no different. The Hollywood actress admits that she "live tweeted" while she was about to give birth to her daughter last May.
According to the New York Daily News on Friday, Washington said that she wanted to keep her fans in the know about a recent Scandal episode even though she was about to give birth to her daughter, Isabelle.
"Every Thursday within three weeks of my due date, I loaded up pre-tweets based on the episodes and what I would want to say," she told The Edit.
She added, "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."
Just recently, the Hollywood star gave quite the speech about discrimination while she received a Vanguard Award for promoting LGBT rights.
According to Gossip Cop last week, Washington spoke about how her roles become political statements and advocated for more LGBT representation in the media.
She said, "When black people today tell me that they don't believe in gay marriage. I say, 'People used to say stuff like that about you and your love.'" She continued, "We must be allies, and we must be allies in this business. Because to be represented is to be humanized."
Washington added before getting a standing ovation, "In the real world, being an other is the norm. In the real world, the only norm is uniqueness, and our media must reflect that."
