We heard the rumors and saw the free-flowing dresses Kerry Washington donned that hid her stomach and it all turned out to be evidence that the “Scandal” star is pregnant!

Washington is reportedly expecting her first child in spring with her hubby, NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, who she secretly wed this summer.

Our favorite TV “Fixer” quietly wed the San Francisco 49ers cornerback in a in a small ceremony in Hailey, Idaho, on June 24, and has made a point to tell reporters she’s not making public comments about her personal life. Her friends tell People magazine that she likely would’ve kept quiet about the baby too, but with her upcoming appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend, “she didn’t want the focus to be on whether or not she has a bump.” Smart tactic to try, because we definitely couldn’t stop staring at the burgeoning bump on her Jimmy Kimmel appearance earlier this month!

While we wonder if she’ll at least make a joke about it on SNL, don’t hold your breath for more details during her pregnancy…unless her friends decide to keep talking.  In a recent interview with Glamour magazine, Kerry noted why she stays so private about her personal matters:

“I learned through experience that it doesn’t work for me,” she said. “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, ‘Okay, no more.’ I’m walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you.”

Well, congratulations on the baby too Kerry! Check out the “Scandal” star (and her bump!) when she hosts Saturday Night Live on Nov. 2.
