erry Washington raised eyebrows earlier this month when she did a round of promotional interviews for the upcoming season of her ABC hit Scandal wearing unusually baggy and roomy dresses that swallowed her petite frame.
Now we know why. Us Weekly exclusively reports the 36-year-old is pregnant with her first child.
The actress secretly married NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha over the summer – something else she did a great job of keeping a secret – and is reportedly four months along.
No word yet on how the pregnancy will affect her character’s storyline on Scandal. Olivia Pope is known for her sleek, form fitting high fashion. So either she’s going to be hiding behind a lot of desks and carrying big purses to hide her growing belly, or the writers could incorporate the pregnancy into a storyline – of which could make for some amazing plot twists for the ABC drama.
