Scandal actress Kerry Washington and former American footballer Nnamdi Asomugha are expecting their second child almost two years after the birth of their daughter - Isabelle Amarachi.
The diva, who starred in the political thriller movie - Confirmation - as Anita Hill, was seen with a baby bump at the Met Gala, which is an annual fundraising event for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City.
Although neither of the parents has publicly spoken about the pregnancy, rumors have already surfaced that ABC drama - Scandal - will have its premiere pushed back to midseason.
The news, which has emerged just a couple of weeks before the season 5 finale, is set to have a huge bearing on the fans of the series as it might not be until 2017 when the next season airs.
A spokesperson for the channel declined to comment on the case, however, all confusions will be put to rest when the network releases its fall schedule on May 17.
