Kerry Washington Welcomes Daughter Isabelle Amarachi
The Scandal star welcomed daughter Isabelle Amarachi on Monday, April 21 in Los Angeles, PEOPLE confirms.
“Kerry is at home busy with the baby,” a source tells PEOPLE.
It’s the first child for Washington and her husband, former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who tied the knot in a secret wedding last July.
Washington, 37, revealed her pregnancy last October and debuted her baby bump on the red carpet in a cream Balenciaga gown at the Golden Globes in January.
“I have the best date of the night — my little accessory,” she said, gesturing towards her belly.
Her growing bump had a fashion moment all of its own when she bared her midriff in a hot pink beaded crop top at the SAG awards later that month, and joked, “I don’t have anything to hide anymore.”
Saying that her pregnancy style was all about comfort, Washington admitted that she was excited about the coming months.
“I feel really, really blessed,” she said. “It just feels like a really good time.”
TMZ was first to report the news.
