Actress Kerry Washington and her football player husband Nnamdi Asomugha have done a remarkable job keeping their private life private, so it should come as no surprise that we are only just learning that the couple welcomed their first child already.
TMZ reported this afternoon that the Scandal star, 37, gave birth two weeks ago. Another source confirmed the news to Us Weekly, stating, “Kerry recently had her baby.”
Washington’s rep does not comment on the actress’ personal life, Us noted. That means that any news about her seems to break long after it happens. Her marriage to Asomugha, 32, was not reported by Us Weekly until a month after it happened last summer. Friends told the media that she was pregnant in October and it wasn’t until the Golden Globes that Washington and Asomugha made their public debut as a married couple.
The actress is best known for her starring role on ABC’s Scandal, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination. The show’s third season was cut down to 18 episodes due to her pregnancy. On the big screen, she has been seen in Ray, Lakeview Terrace and Django Unchained.
