Kerry Washington's Pregnant, Olivia Pope's Future In Question

Kerry Washington's been hiding a secret from us for four months, y'all. She's pregnant, and despite having a hunch that something was up with all them airy dresses she's been sporting, we didn't want to jump to any scandalous assumptions. We've honed too many Olivia Pope-isms to know better than that.
Anyway, yes world! Washington is expecting her first child with the man she also secretly married, Nnamdi Asomugha. Us Weekly contacted a friend of the couple who said "she's about four months along." Her reps nor the lady of the hour herself have confirmed anything — and presumably won't. "I've had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it," she told Glamour regarding her marriage. "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.'" We can likely expect a similar confession with her pregnancy news. Proof will be in the bump. How Shonda Rhimes is going to work this into Scandal's plotline, however, is a bigger question. Looks like Pope and Fitz are going to have a baby after all. What scandal! Such drama! We're hooked. (Us Weekly)
