Here’s some non-scandalous news: Kerry Washington is pregnant.

The “Scandal” star, who recently announced her surprise wedding to 49ers football player Nnamdi Asomugha, is expecting their first child, according to Us Weekly.

A source close to the actress puts her about four months along, which means “Scandal” will probably have to find a way to either write the pregnancy in or send Olivia Pope on an extended spa trip. Of course, Olivia is one of the scariest and most secretive characters on TV, so maybe she’ll just get super pregnant and then reappear one day as a size 0 and everyone will be too intimidated to ask what happened to the baby.

Washington said earlier this year that her political drama “Scandal” had viewers in surprisingly high places. “Bill Clinton was another person where I was like, ‘What?! You watch Scandal?!’” Washington told Entertainment Weekly. “I feel like it happens at least once a week, that I am totally floored by somebody who watches the show.”

It makes perfect sense that Bill Clinton is a fan of a show in which the president has sex with his mistress in the Oval Office.
