Kerry Washington Doesn't Want To Hear Her Body Is 'Back' After Baby

"My body is the site of a miracle now. I don’t want to be pre-miracle."

Kerry Washington is not interested in the notion that her body is "back" to how it was before she gave birth to her first child. 

“A few weeks ago, my manager asked: ‘Do you feel like you’re back? I feel like you’re back,'" Washington told Self magazine for the September 2015 issue. "She meant it as a total compliment, but we had this great conversation where I was like, ‘You know what? I try really hard not to use that language, because it’s not about going backward in life.’”

The "Scandal" star welcomed daughter Isabelle Amarachi with husband Nnamdi Asomugha last year, and isn't trying to grasp onto anything from the past. 

“I’ve been really focused on not being ‘back’ to anything, but being the best version of myself right now," she said. "My body is the site of a miracle now. I don’t want to be pre-miracle.”
