"The initial feeling, when I found out there was no heartbeat from the doctor in a routine checkup, was like, 'Okay, let's Olivia Pope the situation, let's fix it,' " said the actress.

Since Albee's birth, the soon-to-be mother of two has shared glimpses of their life together, from celebrating holidays like St. Patrick's Day as they social distanced together at home and throwback travel shots.
