There was an unexpected guest on the red carpet at last night's Met Gala: Kerry Washington is pregnant with baby #2!

According to E! News, the stunning "Scandal" star is expecting her second child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha, a former San Francisco 49er, and was concealing a baby bump under the ruffles of her black Victoria Beckham gown when she stepped out over the weekend to attend the White House Correspondents Dinner in D.C. Just check out that strategically-placed clutch in the shot she posted to Twitter!

Her tiny baby bump made its official debut at the Met Gala, however, as Washington cradled her belly, which was easy to see in a gorgeous, form-fitting black lace and sequins Marc Jacobs dress. (And can we talk about her maroon-highlighted hair? What a hot mama!)

Washington and Asomugha—who famously pulled off a secret wedding back in June 2013—are already parents to 2-year-old daughter Isabelle Amarachi. Kerry's first pregnancy fell during season three of her hit ABC show, resulting in fewer episodes and a lot less screen time for the expectant mama, whose bump was not written into the storyline.

Whether or not Shonda Rhimes will opt to knock up Olivia Pope this time around remains to be seen. But according to TV Line, news of the pregnancy already has the network considering a delay in the show's return until midseason.

Say it ain't so!

Kerry tends to keep her private life on the down low, but she did recently open up to the Los Angeles Times in a rare interview about life as a new mom.

"I will say I feel really, really blessed," she revealed. "I just feel really blessed that I'm kind of living extraordinary dreams come true in my work life and in my personal life."

In other words: Consider it handled.
