Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Kerry Washington rarely discusses her private life with the media, but finally confirmed her pregnancy Sunday night on the red carpet.
The 36-year-old, who quietly married former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha last year, is up for Best Actress in a TV Series for her work in Scandal.
Washington told Glamour last year that she "learned through experience" to keep her relationships private.
"I've had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it," she said. "But I couldn't just turn around and say, 'I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.' So I just thought, 'Okay, no more.'"
