Kerry Washington is about to become someone’s mother.
The Scandal actress, 36, is expecting her first child with NFL player husband Nnamdi Asomugha, whom she married quietly this past June (married “quietly,” as in got married like a regular person without writing a press release about it and calling the paps on herself).
Us Weekly broke the news that Kerry is four months pregnant, in what sounds like a leak in Kerry’s camp from one of her loudmouth friends who leaked this before she was ready.
“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.
Asked about her top-secret wedding in an interview with Glamour magazine in September, the Django Unchained actress said she had “learned through experience” that talking about her personal life just “doesn’t work” for her.
“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.’”
That said, Washington isn’t trying to dupe anyone. “I’m walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you,” she said. “But I’m going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold.” – via Us Weekly.
