UPDATE: We have a name! Kerry Washington has named her daughter Isabelle Amarachi, People.com confirms. A source close to Washington adds that "Kerry is at home busy with the baby." Sounds like mom, dad and baby are doing well!
Kerry Washington is a mom! The Scandal star, 37, and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha secretly welcomed their first child, a baby girl, on April 21, TMZ reports. A rep for the actress would only confirm that "Kerry recently had her baby," but wouldn't divulge any further details, like the baby's name.
Washington, who surprised fans last June when she announced she had married the former NFL player, 32, in a secret ceremony, gave us another shock when she showed off her baby bump for the first time in October. The notoriously private star hasn't been shy about flaunting her pregnancy style on the red carpet this awards season.
Washington celebrated her baby's imminent arrival with a star-studded baby shower, thrown by her Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes, at Rhimes' sprawling Los Angeles home on February 24.
Congratulations to the happy family!
