Kerry Washington from Scandal has been married to her husband, NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, since June (though they dated for a year prior) and now it’s time for them to have a baby! That’s right, Kerry is four months pregnant!

From US Weekly:

Kerry Washington, like her Scandal alter ego Olivia Pope, sure knows how to keep a secret. The 36-year-old actress, who married NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha in a super covert ceremony in June, has yet another surprise on the way — a baby! As the new issue of Us Weekly exclusively reveals, the Scandal star is pregnant with her first child.

“She’s about four months along,” a pal tells Us of Washington. (Thus far, the mom-to-be has kept any hint of a baby bump concealed under roomy dresses.)

This will be the first child for the Emmy-nominated beauty, who married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Asomugha on June 24 in Hailey, Idaho. According to reports, the couple first started dating in the summer of 2012; Washington was previously engaged to actor David Moscow.

No word on whether or not it’ll effect the shooting schedule for Scandal, but TV is clever these days and I’m sure they can position her behind a desk or a wicker basket or something. Congrats to the happy couple!
