Kerry Washington - Kerry Washington's husband to be hands-on dad

Kerry Washington's husband can't wait for the birth of their first child.

The 'Scandal' actress is expecting a baby with NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha, whom she married in an intimate ceremony in Hailey, Idaho on June 24, and he hinted he plans to be a hands-on father after announcing his retirement from American football on Friday (27.12.13).

The 32-year-old Oakland Raiders quarterback confirmed the news in a statement and said: ''Another journey is starting for me right now.''

When asked how Kerry reacted to his retirement announcement, he also told a press conference: ''I've had a lot of support from my family. Everybody's just been great about it.''

He added: ''Life happens. You start getting these feelings -- it's time. I just felt that it was the right time.''

News that the couple are expecting their first child emerged in October but Kerry has been extremely tight-lipped about her pregnancy to date.

But the actress, 36, did acknowledge her well wishes from her fans on Twitter on Wednesday (25.12.13).

She tweeted: ''Merry Christmas!!!! And thank you sooooooo much for all your holiday prayers, wishes & blessings. XOXOXOX (sic)''
