Rumors have been circulating for a little while now that Kerry Washington is pregnant, and Us Weekly is officially confirming the news! The “Scandal” star has been extra careful to hide her belly in recent appearances, wearing loose frocks and strategically placing her handbags.
“She’s about four months along,” a pal tells Us . Washington has not officially come out and said she’s pregnant, however. This will be the first child for both Washington and her husband NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha.
This wouldn’t be the first secret that Washington has kept from the media. The 36-year-old actress kept her June marriage to Asomugha under wraps as well.
Washington told Glamour in the September issue that she’s learned privacy is her best policy.
I learned through experience that it doesn’t work for me to talk about my personal life. I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it. I was on the cover of a bridal magazine [InStyle Weddings, in 2005, when Washington was engaged to actor David Moscow]. But I couldn’t just turn around and say, “I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.” So I just thought, OK, no more.
I’m walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you. But I’m going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold.
Well, her face has seemed noticeably fuller for some time now and she’s definitely using all the pregnancy tricks, so I’m going to go ahead and say congratulations to Kerry and Nnamdi! I wonder if they’re expecting a boy or a girl?! I, personally, would love to see a mini Olivia Pope.
