Kerry Washington Gave Birth to Baby Isabelle Amarachi on April 21!

BlogHer Original Post

Congratulations, Kerry! Multiple sources are reporting that the Scandal star (and BlogHer '14 Keynote Speaker, can you believe it?) Kerry Washington gave birth to a baby girl WEEKS AGO, on April 21, 2014.

The birth took place in such secrecy that the news media appeared stunned—just like Kerry's secret wedding to Nnamdi Asomugha. I love that! I can't help but believe she's been channeling Olivia Pope to handle both situations.

And I'm also in love with the baby's name: Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha. Gorgeous.

I will miss her pregnancy, however. In case you missed them this season, you must see all of these hysterical gifs showing how Scandal has hidden Kerry's belly this whole time, on Lamps! Knicknacks! Knees! Wine drinking!

My favorites:


Binoculars. Someone on Scandal should get a creativity bonus for that one.

PS: Don't miss the chance to see Kerry speak IN PERSON at BlogHer '14 in Silicon Valley in July!
