Washington ‘pregnant’

Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington is reportedly four months pregnant.

The Scandal actress has been at the centre of baby rumors for weeks, with claims she would announce she was with child during a TV appearance earlier this month.

She hasn’t confirmed the speculation yet, but Us Weekly claims it is true.

“She’s about four months along,” an insider told the publication.

So far the 36-year-old star hasn’t shown any hint of a baby bump while at official engagements, but she has been choosing roomier outfits than she is usually known for.

The star wed American football star Nnamdi Asomugha in June, with the pair getting together in the summer of 2012.

The union came as a surprise as they managed to keep the nuptials under the radar, with Kerry explaining she sees no need to make her personal life public.

“I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it,” she said in September. “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.’”

That said, she also doesn’t want to hide anything from her fans. She appreciates they are interested in her and has been thrilled by their positive attitude following her wedding.

“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.”
