Scandal star Kerry Washington is notorious for keeping her personal life private, even secretly tying the knot to her husband Nnamdi Asomugha last year.

She was a little bit more open during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live while talking to host Jimmy Kimmel, who she calls a “good friend.”

Washington opened up about her daughter, Isabelle, revealing that she named her after her grandmother.

According to ABC News, the two were talking about both recently becoming parents – the third time around for Kimmel and the first for Washington – and Washington said “I heard your baby’s named after her grandmother? Mine is too, named after my grandmother.”

Washington gave birth to Isabelle in April and managed to keep it a secret for two weeks.

Kimmel and his wife, Molly McNearney, welcomed a baby girl named Jane last month.

While Washington was pregnant, Kimmel sent her a box of barbecue from LaBarbecue in Austin, Texas because she loves barbecue food. “There’s nothing more kind to do for a pregnant lady than [sending her] a box full of frozen deliciousness,” she told him.
