Well, that’s quite the new spin on “I don’t care if it’s a boy or a girl, as long as the baby is healthy.”

Actress Katie Lowes, who plays Quinn Perkins on the ABC drama “Scandal,” recently told a mothering magazine that while she knows the sex of her unborn baby, she does not know what gender identity he will affirm nor if he will be gay or straight, People reported Wednesday.

“My husband [fellow actor Adam Shapiro] and I are aware, of course, that our son will be born with male parts. But we have no idea what he will identify as or what his sexual orientation will be,” Miss Lowes told Fit Pregnancy and Baby for the magazine’s October cover story. “I wish, now more than ever, to just please let my son be healthy and happy and safe. That’s all that matters.”

A first-time mom, the 35-year-old Miss Lowes said she felt comfortable planning her pregnancy around her employment, praising her friend and series star Kerry Washington and the show’s creator Shonda Rimes, People reported.

“I wanted to have mine while I was on ‘Scandal.’ Kerry Washington is one of my best friends, and I’ve gotten to watch her go through motherhood,” Miss Lowes said. “I also have the greatest female boss in Shonda Rhimes, who is a mother of three and a huge advocate for women. I knew if I was fortunate enough to get pregnant while working on the show, I would feel nothing but support.”
