American actress, Kerry Washington, is expecting her first baby with husband, Nnamdi Asomugha, according to Us Weekly.

The news comes four months after Washington and the San Francisco 49ers star secretly married on June 24 in Blaine County, Idaho.

A friend of the 36 year-old told the mag, "She's about four months along," and so far Washington has managed to hide any hint of a baby bump from the public eye, she seems to have a knack for keeping secrets!

Kerry stars in the ABC drama 'Scandal' and she didn't reveal any pregnancy news because the show was able to conceal it. A source close to her told E!News, "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 'Django Unchained' actress recently spoke to Glamour magazine about her personal life and why she chooses to keep it as secretive as possible.

"I learned through experience that it doesn't work for me to talk about my personal life."she stated.

"I've had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it. I was on the cover of a bridal magazine [InStyle Weddings, in 2005, when Washington was engaged to actor David Moscow]. 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, OK, no more."

The mother-to-be also delicately discusses her secret marriage to the NFL star, "I'm walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you. But I'm going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold."

There isn't any confirmation if her pregnancy will be written into 'Scandal' for her character 'Olivia Pope'.

Congrats to the happy couple!
