"Scandal"-lous!

Well, not really, but exciting nonetheless: Kerry Washington, star of the wildly popular political TV drama, is pregnant, according to reports.

The Emmy-nominated actress, 36, and her husband of four months, NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, 32, are expecting their first child, a friend of the star revealed to Us Weekly, who broke the news Wednesday. People is also reporting Washington's pregnancy, sourcing someone close to the actress who says the baby is due in late spring. (Us reports the actress is four months along -- a honeymoon baby, perhaps?)

Washington and Asomugha, a San Francisco 49ers cornerback, wed quietly on June 24 in Hailey, Idaho after about a year of dating. They have managed to keep details of their private lives relatively under wraps. 

Congrats to the mom and dad to be! Just one question remains: Does this mean Olivia Pope will also have a bun in the oven?
