*Kerry Washington being pregnant has been one of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood for months now.
That was before Sunday ’cause now it’s official. Kerry, who’s married to former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, showed up with her beautiful belly bump on the red carpet at the Golden Globes and confirmed it.
“I am,” the best actress nominee said when asked to confirm the rumors before the show, wearing a gown by Alexander Wang. “I feel like he designed it more for this bump. I just feel very blessed, truly extraordinary.”
This will be the first child for Washington, 36 and Asomugha, 32. Washington, by the way, rarely discusses her private life.
“I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about [my personal life],” she told Glamour last year. “I was on the cover of a bridal magazine. 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.'”
When asked how far along she is by Extra’s Mario Lopez, she said, “I don’t want to give up too much information, but it’s going great.”
As for whether Kerry and Nnamdi will find out the sex the baby she said, “No, keeping it a surprise.”
Kerry also told Mario Lopez how she and Nnamdi are dealing with her pregnancy while filming this season of “Scandal.”
“We’re handling it, as Olivia Pope, would say.”
Washington did provide a tad of insight as to how her pregnancy was being handled by the show, saying she is working closely with costume designer Lyn Paolo.
“She and I are having a really good time in keeping the fashion elevated, but still making room for this little human.”
