When a female celeb is on a television show, it is a tricky situation when they get pregnant for many reasons.
One reason is that the character is now obviously pregnant. Some shows, such as The Nanny, chose to have Lauren Lane, who played the character C.C Babcock, hide her pregnancy
with big coats or just have her stand behind objects, while other shows such as Big Bang Theory, had Bernadette become pregnant when Melissa Rauch, the actress who plays her, became pregnant in real life.
Another being that some women like to take a break after giving birth to get on a schedule and spend time with their newborn, meaning filming must be put off until they are ready to come back, particularly if they are the main character.
According to therichest.com, Kerry Washington, star of the show Scandal, took no time at all to jump right back in front of the cameras after giving birth to her first daughter and she looked amazing. She even admitted that she was not obsessing with working out, but was just trying to be the best person she can be.
