“Scandal” star Kerry Washington is a new mom.  The actress and her husband, former football player Nnamdi Asomugha, welcomed daughter Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on April 21 according to TMZ.com.  

Isabelle is the couple's first child.

Washington hasn't confirmed her daughter's arrival, but she and her husband are very private. Their romance wasn't revealed until after they were married, and the TV star only talked about her pregnancy three months after it was reported in the media.

Washington worked on her hit TV series throughout her pregnancy, telling the Hollywood Reporter: "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. I've learned a lot about other ways to access [character] Olivia and be her."

Washington recently made the TIME 100, a list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
