(LOS ANGELES) -- Scandal star Kerry Washington hasn't revealed what she's going to name her baby-to-be, but one of her co-stars jokes that he already knows the name the child will be getting.
Columbus Short, who plays Harrison Wright on the hit ABC series, joked to E! News, "She's naming her baby Columbus, whether it's a girl or a boy. It's Columbus. Yeah, because she was just like, 'Columbus, that name is sweet!'"
The 31-year-old actor added, "I think Kerry Washington's baby is going to come out fully able to speak."
Washington is reportedly now seven months pregnant. It will be her first child. She wed her husband, former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, last June.
ABC's Scandal returns on Thursday, Feb. 27, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
