Kerry Washington can actually do it all.

The mother-of-one, who is the cover girl for the next issue of Net-a-Porter‘s The Edit, admitted to tweeting while in labor. That’s right, while she was bringing her daughter Isabella into the world, Kerry was also interacting with Gladiators over social media.

Kerry told the magazine:

Every Thursday within three weeks of my [daughter Isabelle’s] due date, I loaded up pre-tweets based on the episodes and what I would want to say. 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!

Well, she really fooled us because we didn’t find out about the birth until months later.

The Scandal star also opened up about whether or not her hubby Nnamdi Asomugha is Team Fitz, stating:

I have never asked my husband that, actually. But I would say that we are all ‘Team Shonda’. I really love that in the episode Where The Sun Don’t Shine, Olivia said, “I choose me.” That is a really powerful message.

On what she’d be doing if she wasn’t acting:

I would be involved in politics, but I would probably be teaching. It’s what my mother did, so it’s in my blood. My mother is so badass. I watched her get her doctorate when I was a little girl: she got that around the same time that I graduated from kindergarten so we both had caps and gowns. I grew up with a belief in the importance of a woman’s mind and that has been a real gift for me.

On the differences between her and Olivia:

Do a lot of therapy! Not to say that I have it all together, but I think I have a little bit more awareness about my behavior patterns and I do the work it takes to get out of them.
