Actress Kerry Washington is expecting her first baby just months after walking down the aisle, according to a U.S. report.

The Scandal actress, 36, exchanged vows with American football star Nnamdi Asomugha in a low-key ceremony in June (13), and now the pair is set to become parents.

A source tells Us Weekly, "She's about four months along."

The notoriously private star refuses to discuss her home life publicly, and recently revealed it pains her not to speak openly about her wedding day.

She said, "I hate keeping secrets; that is the worst thing for me, because I always want to talk about it. I am really private about my personal life...

"I try to be really naked emotionally in my work, and I am not holding back at all when it comes to my work. I am giving all that I can in my work... So my work belongs to everyone - because that's the choice I made - and my life belongs to me."
