Kerry Washington Welcomes A Baby Girl (in True ‘Scandal’ Fashion!)

PUBLISHED ON 05/02/2014

Is Kerry Washington actually Olivia Pope? Is Olivia Pope really Kerry Washington? I truly can't tell the two apart anymore, because both_ sure_ know how to keep a big old secret. What I'm trying to say is: Kerry Washington gave birth two weeks ago, according to TMZ!

The Scandal star and her husband, Nnamdi Asomugha , welcomed a baby girl on April 21 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA, the outlet reports. The newest, coolest little lady around is named  Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha,  which we love. Amarachi is of Western African descent and means "God's grace." sneaky is Kerry? She gets married in secret last June, then she covers up her bump on Scandal for a while, then coyly calls her expanding belly her "little accessory" at the Golden Globes. So while we're not too surprised that she kept her birth on the DL for two whole weeks, the secrets that woman can keep are just amazing.

So now, we're just crossing our fingers that Kerry appears on The Ellen DeGeneres Show sometime soon, because if anyone can get someone to shed their private ways and divulge some dirt about their newborn, it's Ellen.

Did you wait to tell others you gave birth?
