Nnamdi Asomugah and Kerry Washington expecting

Written by Shirlene Brown | October 30, 2013 | Leave a Comment

Well, well, well!  Kerry Washington and Nnamdi Asomugah are rumored to be expecting.    That will be one good-looking baby! According to Us Weekly,  a friend stated that she is four months pregnant. The couple wed in a private ceremony on June 24, 2013.  Her husband, Nnamdi is a San Francisco 49ers Cornerback.  Nnamdi and Kerry had both initially said that they wouldn’t date each other (he didn’t date actresses, and she didn’t date athletes), but it turned out to be the right match for them.  This is good news and we wish them all the best.
