2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter - Arrivals

“Scandal” star Kerry Washington has had a crazy year.  First, she got pregnant, which required the show to hide her belly bump for an entire season with all kinds of awkward camera angles.  Then, her co-star, Columbus Short, seemed to lose his mind and his marriage at the same time.  He was eventually fired, leaving a crater of a void in the show that is doing pretty well right now.

But Kerry was able to hold it together and bring a new baby in the world.  According to the Huffington Post, Washington just gave birth to a daughter with her husband Nnamdi Asomugha.  Actually, the baby was born several days ago, but the media is just getting wind of it now.  Washington has been extraordinarily quiet, both giving birth and getting married under the radar from the public eye. 

Kerry’s pregnancy was first revealed by People Magazine back in October of 2013.   Here is what she said about herself and her life to The Hollywood Reporter:

“I work very physically as an actor. The biggest thing for me has been the challenge of how to be this person [Olivia Pope] with the personal transformation that’s going on for me physically and how to stay true to this character. That hasn’t been easy,” she said last month. “It’s been an awesome challenge for me as an actor because so much of how I access character is through my body. It’s definitely been complicated to say the least.”

Kerry is 37-years old, meaning that she’s ready and mature enough to have a child.  She was just married last July, so her life is changing quickly.

By the way, the baby’s name is Isabelle.  Congrats to the happpy couple.
