Kerry Washington has added another little gladiator to her brood.
E! News has exclusively learned that the Scandal star and hubby Nnamdi Asomugha have welcomed their second child together. The actress gave birth to a baby boy, Caleb Kelechi Asomugha, on Oct. 5. Other details were not immediately available.
E! News confirmed Washington’s second pregnancy in May, after her baby bump was on display while attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C. Kerry and Nnamdi’s happy news came as the proud parents continue to raise daughter Isabelle away from the public eye.
The Hollywood couple are known to keep their personal life very private, but the celeb couldn’t help but talk at least a little bit about how amazing motherhood has been.
“I will say I feel really, really blessed,” Kerry gushed to the Los Angeles Times in one of her first interviews after welcoming her first child. “I just feel really blessed that I’m kind of living extraordinary dreams come true in my work life and in my personal life.”
Along with the excitement of Washington’s second pregnancy, speculation began to stir as to whether or not writers will be including her baby bump into Olivia Pope’s story line for season six. However, when we recently caught up with the star, that didn’t seem to be the plan.
“As far as I know, we’re going to be hiding things,” she told E! News at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Golf Classic in June. “But stay tuned!”
Once again, Washington made pregnancy look easy as she stunned at various events throughout these last months. “Kerry Washington [has]been feeling well with carrying her second child,” a source told E! News in May. “She is getting tired though more and is looking forward to the summer.”
The insider added that the mama-to-be made sure to keep fit throughout her pregnancy. “She has been working out with different yoga methods and eating healthy. She has always been very weight conscious so she knows exactly what she puts in her mouth all the time.”
Additionally, the source told E! News, “Everyone that she works with has been really helpful. Kerry is in her third trimester at this point. Nnamdi would love a boy this time around if it happens! They are so in love with their daughter and can’t wait to expand the family.”
Congratulations to the happy family!
