Speculation on the ABC "Scandal" star, Kerry Washington's pregnancy have finally been confirmed and the answer is YES! According to Us Weekly, who on Wednesday October 30, confirmed that the Emmy nominated actress is indeed pregnant and about four months along in her pregnancy.
Rumors began to spread after seeing Washington in various photos, from different events wearing gowns and dresses that stepped outside of her norm, form fitting ensembles. The best actress in a drama nominee wore a Marchesa gown to the Sept 22 Emmy Awards, which Huffington Post described as a cream-and-white hued design with a hint of gold lace and tons of flower appliques from the fashion house's Spring 2014 collection, which means it was fresh off the New York Fashion Week runway and won't be available to mere mortals until next year.
Rumors also began to spread after the abrupt and secret sharing of nuptials to husband, NFL cornerback, Nnamdi Asomugha, last July in Ohio, after only dating for a year. Washington has always been very private about her personal life stating in an October interview with Glamour Magazine, "I learned through experience that it doesn't work for me to talk about my personal life. I've had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it. 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,' "she said.
Even with the confirmation of her pregnancy, Washington has been "mums the word." But, Us Weekly caught up with "a pal" of Washington's who has confirmed the rumors...is she or isn't she?
"She's about four months along," a pal tells Us of Washington
