Kerry Washington has been one busy woman indeed! On top of wrapping season 5 of her hit show Scandal, whose finale aired Thursday, she is busy gearing up to be a mom for the second time — and fielding questions about it.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live! following the finale, Washington and Scandal‘s creator, Shonda Rhimes, stopped by and talked to the host about Washington’s pregnancy.

“When you were shooting that thing, with [Tony Goldwyn‘s] Fitz, that must’ve been weird,” says Jimmy Kimmel after congratulating the star on her exciting news. “To know that you were pregnant when that was the storyline.”

“I don’t know if that was happening at the same time,” admits Washington, 39. And when Kimmel jokingly asks her when she was ovulating, Washington responds with a laugh and says, “I’ll send you the app on my phone that tracks my various cycles!”
