The most Scandalous star on television celebrates a birthday today.
Yes, Kerry Washington is now 36 years old!
With Scandal Season 3 on hiatus until late February, fans are anxious to get their fix of D.C.'s most beautiful, vulnerable and ruthless fixer.
But Washington herself is likely happy for the hiatus: she's expecting her first child, after all, with husband Nnamdi Asomugha and the third season of her smash ABC series has been cut short by a few episodes for that important reason.
Still, you can watch Scandal online right now in order to relive Washington's best moments as Olivia Pope and then check out these photos in her honor:
