The most Scandalous star on television celebrates a birthday today.

Yes, Kerry Washington is now 36 years old!

With Scandal Season 3 on hiatus until late February, fans are anxious to get their fix of D.C.'s most beautiful, vulnerable and ruthless fixer.

But Washington herself is likely happy for the hiatus: she's expecting her first child, after all, with husband Nnamdi Asomugha and the third season of her smash ABC series has been cut short by a few episodes for that important reason.

Still, you can watch Scandal online right now in order to relive Washington's best moments as Olivia Pope and then check out these photos in her honor:

ABC will air four fewer episodes of Scandal Season 3 than originally planned, and the speculation is that Kerry Washington's pregnancy is the reason.

The network on Friday didn't say why it will broadcast 18 instead of 22 episodes of the third season of the hit drama, but the writing is on the wall here.

The decision follows the news star Kerry Washington and her new husband, football player Nnamdi Asomugha are expecting their first child together.

Accommodating Washington is the only logical explanation for the early end to production of the current season of the series, one of ABC's most successful.

After next Thursday's episode, the 10th of the season, Scandal will take a break and then return in late February with the final episodes of Season 3.

There are still nine more installments of the show this season in all, and it will surely be back in the fall four a fourth full season, so all hope is not lost.

To see all of them to date, follow the link to watch Scandal online!

Scandal's Kerry Washington seems to be covering practically every magazine these days, but you've never seen her quite like this. Or at all like this.

On Lucky's December 2013/January 2014 cover, Washington's face is practically unrecognizable due to the lighting on her face ... and perhaps more?

Her look - an edgy, shoulder-length hairstyle with bangs, with a white and purple two-piece outfit covered with a sheer, patterned dress - also contributes.

Is it just an unusual picture skewed by the facial expression? Was the 36-year-old photoshopped to high heaven? It's unclear, but a non-issue for the star.

For her part, Kerry loves the new look like fans love Scandal Season 3. She tweeted the image with the caption, "WOOO HOOO!" and made it her Twitter avatar.

The recent Saturday Night Live host has plenty to celebrate these days. Nnamdi Asomugha married her in June 2013, and got Kerry Washington pregnant!

She's playing everyone's favorite President-loving political fixer on Scandal season 3 but Kerry Washington hosted Saturday Night Live and demonstrated that she can wear more than just a White Hat. 

Washington is the 9th Black woman to host the show in its entire 38 year run, and of the 137 actors to grace the stage as cast members, only 4 of them have been African-American.

Throughout the evening, Kerry helped SNL make fun of themselves for their recent diversity issues, chiefly by pointing out that there isn't really much diversity on the show at all.

They jumped right into their self-mockery with the cold open, featuring Kerry Washington as both Michelle Obama and Oprah.

Washington also took to song and dance with a spoof of "What Does The Fox Say?" alongside Jay Pharoah. Check out "What Does My Girl Say?" and two more videos from the night after the jump.

Kerry Washington is famous for being intensely private regarding her personal life, but she was willing to weigh in on a subject that often piques fan interest:

Her sexual orientation.

Even though Kerry Washington is pregnant, and married to Nnamdi Asomugha, people speculate often that she's a lesbian, owing mainly to her private nature.

The chatter doesn't bother her one bit.

"It's interesting how much people long to fill in the gaps when someone in the public eye doesn't share their personal life. I understand their frustration," she says.

Kerry Washington is pregnant and expecting her first child, according to a newly confirmed report, months after secretly marrying NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha.

Like her Scandal alter ego Olivia Pope, she knows how to keep a secret. The 36-year-old actress is "about four months along," a pal says of Washington.

Kerry has not officially announced the pregnancy. Nor do we expect her to.

The Emmy-nominated beauty, who married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Asomugha on June 24 in Hailey, Idaho, is not one for sharing her private life.

According to reports, the couple first started dating in the summer of 2012, but few knew the 36-year-old star was even dating until they got married.

The actress said she had "learned through experience" that talking about her personal life just "doesn't work" for her. One has to respect that greatly.

Congratulations and all the best wishes to the expectant star!

Saturday Night Live is about to get very scandalous, in more ways than one.

NBC has announced that Kerry Washington, who is currently starring as Olivia Pope on Scandal Season 3, will host the November 2nd edition of this sketch series.

Serving as the musical guest on this same installment? The Rap God himself, Eminem, who is under some fire at the moment for lyrics in his latest single that many see as being offensive to gays.

SNL has already aired three episodes this season, with Tina Fey opening as host and being followed by Miley Cyrus and Bruce Willis.

Edward Norton (and Janelle Monáe) are on tap for October 26th, while the following Saturday will mark Washington's first hosting gig and Eminem's sixth turn as SNL performer.

Is Kerry Washington pregnant? The Scandal star's flowing Emmys dress triggered the obligatory speculation on Twitter, but is it more than just a rumor?

Kerry's Marchesa gown and its empire waist hid her usually tiny figure, setting off a frenzy of “is she or isn’t she pregnant?” from Scandal fans on Twitter.

Rumors also circulated when Kerry married Nnamdi Asomugha in a private wedding in June and - some believe anyway - started hiding her figure.

Kerry’s petite body is normally shown in sexy, curve-hugging dresses, so if she opts for a looser, tummy-hiding style, it marks a change of style.

The gown also has a strappy detail over a gold bralette that emphasizes a fuller bustline than Kerry usually has. Perfect to disguise a baby bump.

Kerry Washington, who was nominated for an Emmy for Scandal, can add this to her resume: She was named "World's Best Dressed Woman" by People!

Washington, 36, headed a fashionable list that included Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Solange Knowles, Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Kate Bosworth.

She and Kate Middleton tied atop a similar Vanity Fair list in 2013.

Since she's a consensus style favorite, what's Kerry's secret?

"I don't wear a lot of pants," Washington said. "When I go somewhere I want to know I'm going to be comfortable and I'm dressed for the event."

Kate Middleton and Kerry Washington have landed atop the Vanity Fair 2013 International Best Dressed List, and neither gets an argument from us.
