Rumors have swirled for months that "Scandal" star Kerry Washington is expecting her first child, and at the Golden Globes she confirmed that she is indeed pregnant. "I am," the best actress nominee said before the show, as she showed off her growing belly in an Alexander Wang gown. "I feel like he designed it more for this bump. I just feel very blessed, truly extraordinary."

"I have the best date of the night — my little accessory," the 36-year-old said in a separate interview with Ryan Seacrest.

This will be the first child for Washington and her husband, NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha. The notoriously private star rarely discusses her private life.
