Kerry Washington is four months pregnant.
The Emmy-nominated actress, who is best known for her role as Olivia Pope in Scandal, is married to footballer Nnamdi Asomugha. This will be the first child for the couple, who tied the knot on 24 June in Idaho.
"Kerry and Nnamdi are ecstatic," a source told People.
Rumours that the 36-year-old star may be pregnant started when Kerry was pictured wearing noticeably looser clothing, compared to her figure-hugging outfits.
Kerry has not commented on her pregnancy on Twitter, as the private star has previously said she has learnt not to talk about her personal life.
"I've had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it," said Kerry. "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, 'Okay, no more.'"
