Actress Kerry Washington and 49er cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha sure know how to keep a secret.

First, they secretly married in June. Now comes news that Washington, the 36-year-old star of "Scandal," is about four months pregnant.

A friend of Washington's reportedly revealed to Us Weekly that Washington and Asomugha are expecting their first child, due sometime in early spring.

The couple reportedly began dating in summer 2012 and privately married in Hailey, Idaho, on June 24. Washington was engaged previously to actor David Moscow. It was that latter relationship that has Washington avoiding publicly discussing her marriage, impending motherhood and personal life in general.

"I've had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it," she explained in a recent Glamour magazine interview. "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.'"
