During the episode, she also revealed that it was Shonda Rhimes, Scandal creator, who got to know about her pregnancy news first.

"I told her five minutes from being pregnant, she already knew, she's a genius," Lowes said, adding, "She knows the minute I got pregnant. Rhimes could've guessed it was either a really good weekend eating pizza and beer or I was pregnant."

Lowes married Shapiro, who is known for Steve Jobs, in 2012.

Meanwhile, casts of Scandal are familiar with co-stars getting pregnant while shooting for the show. Last year, Kerry Washington shot five episodes before giving birth to her baby in October.

In January, Washington opened up about hiding her baby bump on Scandal. "You could play a really fun game for the first five episodes of finding the bump," she told Good Morning America host.

She revealed that she used costumes and props to hide her baby bump. "Behind flowers, behind Prada purses. Behind big coats and capes," she said.

Well, it looks like Lowes can take some tips from Washington on how to hide the baby bump while shooting for the show.
