Kerry Washington is walking on sunshine! Us Magazine reported that the Scandal star is about four months pregnant with her first child – a close pal of the star told them.

Washington is married to San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. The pair wed on June 24. The 32-year-old actress will be hosting this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live with musical guest Eminem. She was announced as a host amid the show’s diversity controversy after one of SNL's regular players, Keenan Thompson, made some comments in a interview about the show's lack of black female comedians.
