Kerry Washington's Secret Pregnancy Just Became Big News

Mary Hawkins This Just In

Kerry WashingtonWhoa. This is turning out to be a pretty big week in celebrity baby news. We learned this morning that Scandal star Kerry Washington is pregnant with her first child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha.

According to a source who spoke to Us Weekly, Kerry is about four months into her pregnancy. It looks like she's done a pretty good job at keeping this little secret under wraps -- even though there has been speculation for weeks that she might have a little one on the way.

Good grief. Can't a girl get through her first trimester without everyone whispering?!?

But even though this source has confirmed that Kerry is expecting, we probably shouldn't get our hopes up about hearing any more details until her baby makes his or her arrival.

I mean, she went and got married and no one knew about it until she showed up with a ring on her finger, at which point she still wouldn't comment on her marriage. Odds are good she won't be too eager to talk about her baby-to-be either.

If anything, pregnancy is probably something she'll be even more guarded about, since it's so personal and such an emotional journey. But as the months go on, it's going to be harder and harder for Kerry to hide the "evidence." Hopefully she won't keep us totally in the dark about how she's feeling and how things are progressing.

It would be a nice treat to actually hear the news of the birth instead of simply seeing her strolling around Hollywood with a baby on her hip a few months after the fact.

Congrats to Kerry and her husband!

Have you been really open about your pregnancy, or do you prefer to keep a lot of things private?
