Former NFL veteran Nnamdi Asomugha and Scandal star wife Kerry Washington apparently are brushing aside widespread rumors that he might be gay and are continuing to go about the business of planning for their first child together, according to People.com.
"She spends a lot of time singing to it and talking to it to say we're just playing pretend and everything's going to be okay, so don't worry about it," Joe Morton, who plays Washington's father on the hit ABC series told the website. "She's very excited about being a mom," he added. "She's sort of floating around having just been married and now having a baby and putting a family together. She's in pig heaven, as they say."
Morton later added the exceptionally private Washington enlisted the help of all her castmates to keep her pregnancy under wraps until she was ready to reveal the big news. "We're loyal to her and that's what she wanted - she wanted to keep it private - and we thought, 'Well, it's her baby, let's help her do that,' " he told the website.
As for all the Asomugha rumors, the couple seems to be taking the same approach and has yet to address all the recent media reports questioning his sexuality. The 32-year-old Asomugha played 11 NFL seasons and was a three-time Pro Bowl selection.
