Kerry Washington gave birth to a daughter on Monday, April 21, People Magazine reports, citing unnamed sources. The Scandal star and her husband, former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, named the baby girl Isabelle Amarachi.

Washington, 36, and Asomugha, 32, have been married for almost a year; they had a secret wedding last June. Washington revealed her baby bump in January when walking the red carpet for the Golden Globes, and Scandal went to great lengths to conceal her pregnancy behind oddly-placed lamps and plants on the show.
