[Blind Gossip] This actress has certainly been making some interesting fashion choices lately. Well, we know why…
She is pregnant!
Although she is not showing – and she is not ready to announce yet – we just received confirmation that she definitely is expecting a baby! The announcement is tentatively scheduled for late October/early November as she will have safely cleared the first trimester by then.
Being the star of a project with a specific timeline poses an interesting challenge. Will they shoot around the pregnancy and have her character sit behind a desk or carry lots of large objects around? Or will they write a pregnancy into her character’s storyline? And who would the fictional father be? There is more than one choice, although one certain guy would definitely make for a much more interesting story line!
As for the real-life daddy… no big scandal there. It’s her Significant Other. Yes, they are both happy about it. And now you can stop wondering why they got married so quietly.
Project Daddy possibilities:
Her Real-Life SO:
Actress: Kerry Washington
Project Daddy possibilities: Fitz (Actor Tony Goldwyn) or Jake (Actor Scott Foley)
Her Real-Life SO: Nnamdi Asomugha
We got confirmation on Kerry Washington’s pregnancy three weeks ago and told you about it, so today’s announcement is old news to Blind Gossip readers.
And, yes, we were right on the money with the time frame for the announcement (“The announcement is tentatively scheduled for late October/early November”).
Here is the story from our friends at Us Weekly, plus some some additional details just for BG readers!
Kerry Washington Pregnant,
Expecting First Child With Husband Nnamdi Asomugha!
Kerry Washington, like her Scandal alter ego Olivia Pope, sure knows how to keep a secret. The 36-year-old actress, who married NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha in a super covert ceremony in June, has yet another surprise on the way — a baby! As the new issue of Us Weekly exclusively reveals, the Scandal star is pregnant with her first child.
“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.”

We’ll skip the boring stuff about the loose-fitting dresses and get right down to the fun bits:
1. How are they going to incorporate Kerry Washington’s pregnancy into the Scandal story line? And who is the father of Olivia Pope’s baby? President Fitz or Jake? Scandalosa!
2. Kerry and Nnamdi were married almost exactly four months ago. She is approximately four months pregnant right now. Did they rush the wedding because she was pregnant, or did she get pregnant during the wedding ceremony? Scandalosa!
3. Kerry Washington has been accused in the past of having an affair with Chris Rock… and of being too flirty with co-star Tony Goldwyn and real-life President Barack Obama! Scandalosa!
4. We have one exclusive bit of info about Kerry’s pregnancy that BG readers will be the FIRST to know: Kerry Washington was actually planning to make the big pregnancy announcement during her hosting monologue on Saturday Night Live on November 2, but someone leaked the news and spoiled the surprise. Scandalosa!
Congratulations to Kerry Washington and her husband, Nnamdi Asomugha! And congratulations to BG reader Jlocke726 for being first with the correct answer!
