Kerry Washington is dusting off her Olivia Pope character this Thursday night for the season premiere of Scandal after having a baby and she feels as blessed as ever.

The new mom opened up about motherhood in a new interview with People Magazine.

“[Motherhood is] wonderful. We just continue to feel very blessed.”

5 months ago Kerry gave birth to a daughter named Isabelle Amarachi and now she’s shedding off that baby weight for her show Scandal by doing pilates.

“It’s such a great way to get in shape in a loving way,” she explains. “I feel like I’m both challenging myself and healing my body at the same time.”

Kerry says she still has work to do, but with Scandal returning to air this Thursday she’ll be back to her svelte self in no time.
