US Weekly confirmed earlier today that A-lister and star of one of television’s hottest shows, Kerry Washington and new hubby, Nigerian-American, Nnamdi Asomugha are expecting! 36 -year old Washington wedded 32-year old, San Francisco 49er cornerback, Asomugha at an ultra-secretive ceremony on June 24th of this year in Hailey, Idaho. Four months later, here comes baby – the first for the happy couple.
Asomugha is of Igbo descent, so we at ALUX are wondering if the happy couple will bless this child with a strong African name. You know, to announce to the world that this child is of strong African stock! So if it is a girl I’m thinking Adanna (father’s daughter), Kelechi (thank God), Kamsiyonna (God has given me just as I have asked Him), and Kosisochukwu (as it pleases God). For a boy, Abaeze (branch of kings), Nwachinemere (a child that God blesses), Ndukaku (life is greater than wealth); or they can simply name him after daddy, Nnamdi (my father is alive). Whatever they choose to name the little one, ALUX wishes them a healthy pregnancy and a safe delivery!
Don’t forget to tune in every Thursday to watch Washington play super sexy, uber savvy political fixer, Olivia Pope, on ABC’s Scandal. I wonder if Shonda Rhimes is going to write-in a scandalous plot to highlight the pregnancy? I will be watching for the baby bump, will you?
