Kerry Washington pregnant with first child

Actress Kerry Washington, star of the TV One drama Scandal, is pregnant with her first child.

The 36-year-old is reportedly four months along, a friend told Us Weekly magazine, and she and her husband, NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, are very excited.

It’s been only four months since the Django Unchained actress said ‘I do’ to the San Francisco 49ers cornerback in a secret ceremony in Hailey, Idaho.

When asked about her private wedding, Kerry says she learnt from previous relationships that talking about her private life doesn’t work – she was once engaged to fellow actor David Moscow from 2004 to 2007.

“I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it,” she explained. “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, ‘Okay, no more.'”

There is no word yet if the actress’ pregnancy will be written into an upcoming storyline on Scandal.
