(Yahoo!) - There's no scandal here. Kerry Washington is expecting her first child, a source confirms to omg!.
The actress surprised the masses when she married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, whom no one knew she was even dating, in a private ceremony in Blaine County, Idaho, on June 24.
"She's about four months along," one of her friends told Us Weekly. By our math, it seems the newlyweds didn't waste any time.
"Kerry and Nnamdi are ecstatic," a source close to Washington told People.
As happy as she may be, it doesn't sound like it was her original plan to share her news just yet. A source told E! News, "She had planned to wait longer because the pregnancy is being well hidden on 'Scandal' with her trademark coats, but it will be pretty obvious on 'Saturday Night Live' this Saturday, so she decided to start telling people now." People's source expanded on that statement, revealing, "She didn't want the focus to be on whether she has a bump."
But just because the 36-year-old beauty has revealed that she's with child, doesn't mean her life is suddenly going to be an open book.
Earlier this year, she told Glamour, "I've had earlier times in my career when I did talk about [my personal life]. 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.'"
Still, she's not trying to hide anything. "I'm walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you," she noted. "But I'm going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold."
And now that she's expecting, that policy is unlikely to change. "Kerry will still keep her private life private," People reports. A rep for Washington (who seems to be on the same page as the star) would only say, "We do not comment on her personal life."
Now that the cat's out of the bag, we won't have to watch "SNL" to see if she has a bump, but we will have to watch to get a good look at it.
Watch the recently-released promos for the episode, which cleverly were filmed with a tight shot and a loose dress.
