Kerry Washington of 'Scandal' pregnant with first child

As we've learned this week, not all national secrets are easily kept.

ABC's "Scandal" star, Kerry Washington, is reportedly expecting her first child with her husband of four months, NFL cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, according to Us Weekly.

The 36-year-old actress married Asomugha in a super-secret ceremony in Hailey, Idaho on June 24 and is reportedly about four months pregnant.

New York Daily News reports the pair began dating in 2012.

There's no word if Washington's pregnancy will become part of the plot line in Season 3 of the hit series that airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on ABC15.

Washington plays Olivia Pope, a famous fixer and mistress of the President of the United States.

Fans may get an early glimpse of Washington's baby bump as she's scheduled to host "Saturday Night Live" on Nov. 2.
