Actress [and expectant mommy?]: Kerry Washington will have extra help around the house on diaper duty by the time her bundle of joy arrives! THIS JUST IN: During a conference at the Oakland Raiders’ headquarters; her husband, cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, 32, announced his retirement from professional football after 11 seasons in the NFL. Asomugha stated: “I’ve been blessed and fortunate to have a successful NFL career. Another journey is starting for me right now.” Although he was cut by the San Francisco 49ers in early November, he signed a one-year deal with the team after a waiver by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2012. After months of public speculation, in late October 2013 Internet rumors ran amuck that the couple was expecting their first child together.
Washington and Asomugha began dating in summer 2012 and secretly wed in Hailey, Idaho on June 24, 2013.
Amongst all the speculation and rumors about a “baby-bump,” and despite working and consistently being seen every Thursday night ABC’s Scandal, Kerry managed to remain mum about her pregnancy for reasons (sources say) she wanted to keep it secret until she was past that crucial point of gestation before officially announcing it to the world (which, to date, she still has yet to do). Kerry has been currently working on season three of Scandal but when it was reported ABC’s episode order for season three was reduced from 22 to 18…
…rumor has it that this was done to accommodate Washington’s pregnancy (and for when she would be showing undeniably preggers).
The fall finale for the 2013 Fall Season aired on December 12, 2013 and is currently on hiatus in January 2014 to resume wrapping up the third season. Washington and Asomugha recently stepped out at the after party to celebrating her hosting SNL November 2. #StayTuned to Other Side of the Fame for any and all updates on the “when’s,” “where’s, and “if’s”. When we find out the G’s, you will definitely be in the know!
