Someone has that mom-to-be glow!
Actress Kerry Washington was caught by paparazzi while running errands in New York City today, her first public outing since confirming that she's pregnant with her first child.
The smiling Scandal star looked extra comfy, wearing light gray sweats with black furry boots and covering her growing baby bump with a baggy striped T-shirt and oversized sweater.
E! News confirmed the pregnancy news earlier this morning, and although Washington's rep was not immediately available for comment, a source tells us: "She had planned to wait longer because the pregnancy is being well hidden on Scandal with her trademark coats, but it will be pretty obvious on Saturday Night Live this Saturday. So she decided to start telling people now."
The pregnancy comes four months after the actress secretly married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.
As first reported by E! News, Washington, 36, and Asomugha, 32, tied the knot in Blaine County, Idaho, on June 24. The Emmy-nominated star has remained tight-lipped about their intimate nuptials since then. "I hate keeping secrets; that is the worst thing for me, because I always want to talk about it," the Django Unchained star told reporters on Oct. 2. "I am really private about my personal life."
As for her character Olivia Pope on the popular ABC series, sources tell E! News that the network and executive producer Shonda Rhimes are in the early stages of figuring out how to address Washington's pregnancy onscreen.
However, one insider insists it's "unlikely" that Olivia Pope will get pregnant, saying, "It would slow Olivia and the show down." We are told the most likely scenario is that Washington's pregnancy will be hidden and the production schedule may be slightly altered if needed.
