Kerry Washington is pregnant with her and husband Nnamdi Asomugha’s second child, Gossip Cop confirms. We had heard last week the actress was expecting, but her rep would not confirm or deny the baby news.

Washington and Asomugha are already parents to daughter Isabelle, who was born on April 21, 2014. The actress and the former NFL cornerback were married in a secret wedding ceremony in June 2013 and remain happy, though Gossip Cop has had to debunk several inaccurate breakup rumors about the couple since then.

Earlier this year, Gossip Cop exclusively corrected the National Enquirer for claiming Washington and Asomugha were “on the verge of a split” and “don’t sleep together.” Although we’re not licensed doctors at Gossip Cop, rumor has it two people need to sleep together in order to conceive a child. Shortly before that tall tale, we busted Life & Style for alleging the couple had “pretty much separated,” and Washington planned to file for divorce. Obviously, no such split ever took place.

It’s being reported that Washington’s pregnancy could potentially alter the upcoming sixth season of her hit ABC show “Scandal.” Among these scenarios are a truncated season or pushing the shooting and airing schedule back to accommodate Washington giving birth and taking maternity leave. In the meantime, Gossip Cop congratulates Washington and Asomugha on the exciting baby news!
