Scandal star Kerry Washington is expecting her first child with NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha.
CBS News reports that a close friend of Washington’s claims she is four months along, and is due sometime in the spring.
Washington, 36, and Asomugha, 31, cornerback with the San Francisco 49ers, married in a relatively secret ceremony in Hailey, Idaho, in June 2013.
Washington has recently made a name for herself on the ABC drama Scandal. Although there is no official news on whether or not her pregnancy will be incorporated into the show, Washington stressed in an interview with E! Online that “anything can happen.”
“I really never know where the show is going,” she said. “That’s the part I love about television. You just don’t know what the beginning, the middle, and the end is going to be… Olivia can die, she can get married, she can get pregnant—anything can really happen.”
A show insider says, “It is unlikely that Olivia Pope would get pregnant. It would slow Olivia and the show down.” The insider says that it is likely that production will slow down in order to accommodate Washington’s pregnancy.
