Kerry Washington is a mom… again! The “Scandal” star gave birth to a baby boy named Caleb Kelechi Asomugha, her second child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha.

Washington and Asomugha welcomed their newborn on October 5. No other details about the little one’s arrival have been released. But he joins big sister Isabelle, who turned 2 this past April.

As Gossip Cop reported, Washington’s pregnancy was confirmed in early May. That same day, she debuted her baby bump at the Met Gala. The proud mama cradled her stomach on the red carpet, and then did so again at last month’s Emmys. For that she even wore a dressed that bared some of her blossoming belly (see photo above).

Shortly after it was revealed Washington was expecting again, she opted to take a break from social media to spend time with her family. She also took a break from “Scandal” as well. As Gossip Cop reported, ABC shortened and pushed back the show’s upcoming sixth season to accommodate Washington’s maternity leave. The new episodes are now expected to air in 2017.

Neither Washington nor Asomugha have commented on the new addition to their family. The couple has managed to keep their relationship largely private, including before and after they wed in 2013. Still, Gossip Cop extends the stars many congrats on their growing family!
