“My character [Dr. Jo Wilson] on the show, as of right now, is not pregnant, so I have to make sure I don’t rub my belly on camera," the 33-year-old actress says in the March issue of Fit Pregnancy. "When I start rubbing, which I do mindlessly, the director points to her belly, and I know to stop."
Luddington seems to be a little envious of how Scandal, another ABC drama created by Shonda Rhimes, was able to hide Kerry Washington's pregnancies when she shot the show. "On Scandal, Kerry Washington is able to block her own belly with elaborate outfits and gorgeous bags. For me, there’s only so much you can do in scrubs, aside from carry an iPad," she quips. "At some point, they’re going to need computer-generated imagery to fake things, and if they do, I’ve already asked them to give me amazing six-pack abs!"
One thing this mom-to-be is counting on is her bundle of joy being a Beyonce fan. "I know the baby can hear at this point, so we have jam sessions during my commute. I think she really loves Beyoncé -- and I love her even more for that," Luddington shares. "Whenever Beyoncé plays, I feel her kick. I just can’t tell if it’s a ‘Yes! I love Beyoncé!’ kick or a ‘Please, God, stop singing along’ kick.”
Luddington recently showed her loyalty to the Beyhive when she and her Grey's co-star, Ellen Pompeo, recreated Beyonce's lingerie-clad baby announcement. Check it out:
