Kerry Washington knows all the mom hacks!
On Tuesday's episode of the Jennifer Hudson Show, the Scandal alum shared that she once used the White House refrigerator to store her breast milk, while attending President Barack Obama's final party in office.
"I was nursing at the time and I remember I brought my pump with me, just in case. And thank God, because at 2 a.m., I was like, 'Can somebody show me a little closet where I can go and pump?' " Washington recalled. "Because I'm not ready to leave this party!"
Mother of one Hudson, 41, was seemingly impressed.
"You put it in the fridge at the White House?" she asked. "That baby got some special milk!"
