Rumors have been swirling for a while that Scandal star, Kerry Washington was expecting her first child. Although, those rumors were repeatedly denied , today it looks like those rumors were actually the TRUTH!

Kerry Washington is indeed expecting her first child with her NFL star husband, Nnamdi Asomugha! I am so happy for them as I am a huge Scandal fan and a big fan of Kerry Washington's work in general!

I think Kerry is a great role model to women as is her character Olivia Pope on Scandal. Wait, I'm kidding...Miss Pope had an affair with the President on the show so I totally take that back!
