Congratulations Kerry Washington! She kept both pregnancy and birth a secret! She gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.
According to Huffington Post and TMZ the secretive star Kerry Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha welcomed a baby girl into the world on April 21. Kerry’s new baby girl is named Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha.
She embraced her blossoming belly on the red carpet in a variety of stunning dresses (and even a crop top!), but remained mum about the baby’s gender and her feeling about impending parenthood. The closest Washington has gotten to discussing her pregnancy was when she talked about her character, Olivia Pope, with The Hollywood Reporter:
“I work very physically as an actor. The biggest thing for me has been the challenge of how to be this person [Olivia Pope] with the personal transformation that’s going on for me physically and how to stay true to this character. That hasn’t been easy,” the 37-year-old said in April. “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.”
She isn’t the first star that chose to remain mum about the birth of their child. Check out these celebs who did the same.
