Kerry Washington and Husband have baby girl
Scandal star Kerry Washington and her NFL football player husband Nnamdi Asomugha gave birth to a baby girl on April 21, 2014 at Los Angeles Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The couple was confirmed pregnant back in October but decided to keep quiet until the Golden Globe Awards took place in Jan. 2014.
When asked about her pregnancy at the Golden Globe Awards, the television star said, “I feel like I have the best date of the night.” Washington was later joined by Asomugha at an after party, making a the Golden Globes a rare public apperance for the couple.
After rumors were done circulating, Shonda Rhimes, the creator of Scandal hosted Washington's baby shower at her home in Los Angeles. Besides family of Washington and Asomugha, the list of celebrity guests included:
- Jane Fonda
- Tracee Ellis Ross
- Cicely Tyson
Washington continued to work throughout her pregnancy. This forced her character, Olivia Pope, to disguise the baby bump with large bags and heavy coats. Season three was cur from 22 episodes to 18 as a means of accomodating the pregnancy.
"She's already a mom. She already mothers all of us. She's very Olivia Pope to us, making sure we're all taken care of and happy," Darby Stanchfield told E! News in January.
The name of the child has yet to be revealed, but if the baby girl inherits her father's athletic prowess and mother's sense she'll become an unstoppable force in Hollywood.
