Kerry Washington has some exciting news! The “Scandal” star is expecting her second child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha, Us Weekly confirms.

The 39-year-old actress is known for being incredibly private, so it wasn’t until her TV co-star Tony Goldwyn posted a photo of her with her hand on her stomach that speculation of her pregnancy began.

In the snap, Washington is seen with one hand on her growing belly as she tries to take an adorable selfie with her “Scandal” co-stars.

The following day, Washington then debuted her baby bump on the red carpet at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington, D.C.

The actress and former NFL hubby Asomugha are so incredibly private about their home life that they were able to keep their 2013 wedding under wraps. Four months later, it was then revealed that they were expecting their first child. Isabelle Amarachi was born in April 2014.

While Washington has kept mum about her daughter since then, she has revealed small details here and there, such as how her daughter “looks just like her dad.”

Considering how adamant Washington is about keeping her kids out of the public eye, it’s unlikely we’ll get more details about the actress’ second pregnancy. Despite this, we’re still excited to hear Washington gush about motherhood.

In a 2015 interview with Entertainment Tonight, Washington sweetly admitted, “The thing that has changed the most about me since I became a mom is that my heart keeps getting bigger and bigger.”

Awww. We can’t wait to hear more cute quotes like these!

2016 is turning out to be the year of second babies! Olivia Wilde, Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Gosling, and Emily Blunt all became first-time parents in 2014 and are each currently expecting their second child.
