“Scandal” star Kerry Washington is reportedly expecting her first child with NFL player husband Nnamdi Asomugha, according to HelloBeautiful.

“She’s about four months along,” a friend of the 36-year-old actress says.

The surprising pregnancy report follows Washington’s surprise wedding to the San Francisco 49ers cornerback this past summer.

No word if Washington’s pregnancy will be worked into the season three plot of the ABC hit drama in which she plays Olivia Pope, a famous Washington, D.C. fixer.

Tips For First-Time Moms

1. Relax

Sure, reading about pregnancy during pregnancy has its advantages. But if you’re anything like me, there can be information overload that’s enough to drive you mad. So put the books down – at least once in a while – and either read something totally non-pregnancy related or watch a movie with your honey.

2. Stay Active

Exercise guidelines vary depending on the individual and the pregnancy, but the jury seems to agree that gentle exercise, like walking, is good for just about every expecting mom. Movement helps relieve stress and can ensure you get a better night’s sleep.
